Condemnation that Haiti increases taxes on onions and beans from the Dominican Republic – DiarioLibre.com

The president of the Association, Victor Octavio Moreta Valdez, qualified the increase as a “ban in disguise” on the part of the Haitian government for these products.

He maintained that this decision had caused a drastic reduction in the sales of onions and beans, affecting dozens of Dominican producers.

He detailed that the tax which applied to a sack of 100 pounds of beans had increased from RD$180 to RD$1,280; whilst for a sack of onions it had increased from RD$10 to RD$130.

Moreta Valdez announced that next Wednesday a committee of Dominican business owners has anticipated a meeting with the authorities from Haitian Customs to look for a solution to the increase in these taxes. via – DiarioLibre.com.
