iciHaiti - France : International aid can not continue to cushion chronic crises
On Friday, 14 July, Elisabeth Beton Delègue, Ambassador of France accredited to Haiti, delivered a speech on the celebration of the National Day of France, which we invite you to share the essence of some excerpts about Haiti.

Extract from the speech of Ambassador Delègue :

"[...] France is convinced that the opportunity to engage Haiti in the path of recovery is open, with the support of the international community, in which, as a friend and partner, without any ulterior motive of all kinds, it intends to take all its place to accompany the change without which the country will not leave the trap of underdevelopment nor its inhabitants of precariousness.

[...] International aid, the observation is shared, can not continue to cushion chronic crises, nor replace the responsibilities of the national actors: we welcome in this respect the relaunch of the coordination of the partners under the aegis of the Prime Minister, with the holding of a new aid effectiveness committee after 3 years of sleep.

[...] Since November 2016, following a government decision, Haiti has joined the list of 17 priority countries for official development assistance http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19562-haiti-news-zapping-politics.html , exclusively African club until now: this means that our support will be spared budget cuts : the AFD will thus increase the volume of its interventions in its sectors of concentration, agriculture, historic area where it has been present for 30 years, but also education and vocational training, urban development and governance.

[...] Our cooperation is also based on a cultural and educational network with the Lycée Alexandre Dumas, the French Institute of Haiti, which depends directly on our embassy and the 5 alliances in the province, local associations, for their part, focused on Haitian youth [...] we distributed 20,000 books in this network and that of the partner schools http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20560-haiti-martinique-donation-of-nearly-20-000-books.html . We will continue to book libraries and develop a network of community radio stations to broadcast bilingual educational and recreational programs in Creole and French.

[...] Arts and culture are an industry, a source of income for Haitians, to which France contributes, whether it concerns the sales of books by your writers, or the rooms that program your musicians, such as the famous Group Tabou Combo that plays almost more in Guadeloupe and Martinique than in Haiti ! On April 8, France's largest auditorium, the Accor Arena Paris Bercy, gathered 15,000 people for 'La nuit du Kompa'.

[...] for foreign investment to contribute to the sustainable development of the country, it is important to build trust and confidence by improving the legal framework and transparency of business practices. As for the companies that are already present in the country, it is important that their partnership with Haiti continues to be a win-win [...]"
