President Luis Abinader met yesterday with his Haitian counterpart, Jovenel Moise, to review the bilateral agenda on matters of security, health, trade, migration, energy and the evolution of the political process in the sister country.
The president also announced that in the next few days he will make public a declaration of the agreements reached.
“Today I held a meeting with the president of Haiti, @ moisejovenel, to review the bilateral agenda: security, health, trade, migration, energy and the evolution of the political process in Haiti. We will publish a statement of the agreements in the coming days, “wrote Abinader on his Twitter account @luisabinader.
The meeting was also broadcast by Moise through his account @ moisejovenel where he wrote: “Today I met again with the Dominican President Luis Abinader, to discuss the priorities of the bilateral agenda between Haiti and the Dominican Republic:
security, health, trade, migration, energy, as well as the evolution of the political process in Haiti. A joint statement will be published shortly, ”the Haitian president posted along with a photo of both heads of state, as Abinader did.
Haiti remains the second most important trading partner for the Dominican Republic, surpassed only by the United States, but relations have been affected in recent years by the impediments that the neighboring government has imposed on numerous products that are exported from here, a pending issue.
Tour of Elías Piña
