I went to the site for The Ministry of Economy And Finance (MEF).

Right after listing the products restricted by Haiti, they posted the following note:

"Obviously these measures are aimed above all other reasons, to enable the Ministry to cover the hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue lost to smuggling.

However, we just wonder if the Minister took into account the increase in the price of these products, due to a much more expensive transportation method, which will have negative repercussions on the cost of living is already too high for the poorest populations"

Someone at The Ministry of Economy And Finance (MEF) does not think the economic measures taken by Haiti will work to its advantage.
