Dominican, Haiti universities to conduct immigrant census
SANTO DOMINGO.- The heads of the Santo Domingo State (UASD) and Haiti State universities yesterday pledged to conduct a census of Haitian immigrants and their legal status.
Franklin Garcia Fermín and Jean Vernet Henry also agreed to include in the investigation the work the Haitians do in Dominican Republic, which aims to bolster relations between both countries.
Garcia said the agreement is historic for both academies, and hopes it will provide concrete data which will help to establish both Haitian and Dominican migratory policies, and spur the development of the two nations.
The agreement is an initiative of the organization Action International, which will fund the investigation.
For his part Haiti State University director Jean Vernet Henry said he’s satisfied with the agreement’s reaches.
Dominican ambassador in Haiti Rubén Silié, who also spoke during the signature, said it’s the first time that both countries agree to conduct a study that’ll provide specific results on Haitian immigration in Dominican Republic.
