Michel Martelly went crawling to Danilo Medina following protest

The meeting that took place between Michel Martelly and Danilo Medina yesterday came after protests by Dominican merchants in Dajabon to close the market serving Haitian merchants following the ban or road transportation of 23 Dominican products. The retailers organizations had called for a boycott on trade between Haiti and Dominican Republic until the Haitian government reverses its decision.


Being in a position of weakness and not able to answer effectively to the demand of the population who has been protesting, setting fire on public buildings, etc.., the Martelly-Paul government has decided to forget about what ever is left in term of character, dignity or prestige as President Martelly went crawling to Danilo Medina to ask for forgiveness and to promise that the Haitian government is willing to eat its decision in regard to the 23 Dominican products.

Now, diplomatically speaking:
After five hours of meeting on Tuesday at the airport in Barahona, the two leaders pledged to work toward better harmonization. A new committee will be created to find solutions to the various problems

In the meantime, Dominican immigration authorities revealed that since August 14, 2015, they have repatriated 4,850 Haitians.

Haiti will be weak in every aspect of it financial and commercial lives until the authorities understand that they must easy out the food and other products production processes.

Land must be given in concession to petit planteurs who demonstrate that they will build a house, plant strategic crops for national consumption and for export; the government must give all types of assistance to the production all over the country, including grants, small credits, and by creating a guarantee fund to back up the big loans that some project will need.
Also, the government must open an office in each and every department of the country to facilitate land title with preference for those which will be dedicated to agriculture, livestock and agro-industrial production.
