Importation

In Malpasse (on the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic),  the massive import of the dominican products towards Haiti can easily be noticed. On Mondays and Thursdays, market days, hundreds of Haitian come in every mode of transportation to grab some supplies, groceries that will help the country to live on.

The unstable economy of Haiti, especially since its Independence in 1804, does not help the relationship strained between both parts of the Dominican island.

In September 2015, Haiti forbade 23 products imported by ground among them: wheat flour, oil, washing powder or even spring water. The dependence of Haiti from his neighbor for a lot of basic products is dramatic.
