Haiti – Dominican Republic Bi-National Programme
Caribbean Export believes in a stronger, united region that works together in order to achieve its mutual goal of development. In order to achieve this, the Agency has facilitated and taken part in several bi-national programmes designed to foster relationships between the CARICOM states and both the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The main goal of these agreements, apart from the creation of a more integrated region, is to promote the development of Haiti and the Dominican Republic while taking into consideration the requirements for sustainable development and the need for poverty reduction strategies.
The programme aims to achieve this ultimate goal by satisfying specific objectives:
- To nurture the development of economic and commercial cooperation between the nations through the use of agreements that benefit both parties;
- To support initiatives which focus on the local development and sustainable resources of both countries;
- To strengthen the capacities of invested public institutions and private sector entities in their efforts to create a favourable environment for trade and commerce between the two nations.
By adhering to these objectives, the programme hopes to strengthen and build on a relationship that has already been established by Caribbean Export’s Barbados and sub-regional offices.
