It is hoped that the new Dajabon market, on the border with Haiti, will boost trade between the two countries once it starts operating early next month.
Provincial governor, Esther Ramirez stated, this work represents the definite take off of the province and its inhabitants, and progress towards sustainable development, “because for over 30 years we have been longing for a project of this nature.”
“This is an idea that will make history, for it will benefit thousands of Dominicans, and our province will grow more. This is the largest of the 14 markets on the Dominican Republic border area,” Ramirez said.
The market, whose facilities were built with a donation of more than RD$278.0 million by the European Union, includes 2,264 internal and external modules, including those built in the site’s esplanade. It will help foster economic development in both Dajabon and Ouanaminthe in Haiti.
