Here is the map for the development of Haiti Dominican Republic border by Quisqueya Economic Binational Council, CEBQ.
On Friday, April 15, 2016, at the office of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Binational Economic Council Quisqueya (CEBQ) has submitted its project on the development of Haitian-Dominican Border Trade. The proposal indicates how the border development projects can benefit the inhabitants of both the nations. The Industrial Development Corporation of the Dominican Republic involved in the project, presently has employed 8,000 of its workforce and they believe there would be job opportunities for about 200,000 people within next 10 years. Population growth in both the countries is a fact that none can ignore. IFC, a part of the World Bank, was created in 1956 with an objective to assist economic development by encouraging the growth of productive private enterprise in its member nations, particularly in the underdeveloped areas. Thus, we should make them understand the need to invest and assist the Binational Economic Council Quisqueya in every possible way.

The border betweenHaiti and Dominican Republic is closely monitored however, that does not prevent Haitians from crossing the border on a regular basis in search of job
