SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (sentinel.ht) – The Dominican Republic said it filed a complaint against Haiti on September 29, 2015 to the World Trade Organization for what it calls a violation of understanding between the two.

Dominican Foreign Affairs Minister Andres Navarro and Industry and Commerce Minister, Jose del Castillo, said the complaint was submitted to the Access to Markets Committee of the WTO. The nation asserts that the banned ground entry of 23 Dominican products is a violation.

Navarro said the ban hindered overland commerce between the two nations and that Panama, Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Colombia are backing the complaint.
