Metallic structure for new market in Ouanaminthe is being disembarked

Incatema is building a new food market in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. This project is part of Ouanaminthe Binational Program (Haiti-Dominican Republic), financed by the European Union. According to works schedule, the first batch of containers have been sent from Spain containing metallic structures for the future market in order to continue after pile and foundation works already executed.

Ouanaminthe new market has two buildings located in the Dominican Republic (Dajabon) and Haiti (Ouanaminthe). As it has been mentioned, this infrastructure will contribute to guarantee food security in this country and facilitate trade on both sides of the border. Works are expected to finalise in May 2019.

The new binational market will improve access to food products

Haitians cross the border with the Dominican Republic every day to buy food and essential goods since 1993, when the former Dominican president Joaquín Balaguerannounced he would allow such trade to alleviate limited access to food in Haiti, by then suffering an international commercial freezing. The first authorised border crossing was between the towns of Dajabón and Ouanaminthe.

Within the same binational program, financed by the European Union, INCATEMA has rehabilitated and delivered the new town market to Ouanaminthe town hall (see news).
