iciHaiti - Japan : Official ceremony of reception of a donation of 6,396 tonnes of rice
Fils Aimé Ignace St Fleur, Director General of the Monetization Office for Development Aid Programs (BMPAD) organized, in its storage center located in Laffiteau (Cabaret), a reception ceremony of a shipement of 6.396 tonnes of rice https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-29895-icihaiti-japan-donation-of-212-000-bags-of-rice.html donation from the Government of Japan worth approximately US $3.6 million, in the presence in particular of the Ambassador of Japan Mizuno Mitsuaki, BMPAD executives and representatives of the sectoral ministries concerned.

Remember that this donation is part of a partnership agreement signed on March 11, 2019 between the Haitian and Japanese governments https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27166-haiti-japan-signature-of-a-$36m-grant-agreement-for-rice-purchase.html

Given the current difficult economic situation in Haiti where rice occupies an important part in the household food basket and culture, this donation will help to stabilize prices and will improve access to basic food on the local market. Note that this donation is not limited only to the supply of rice, in fact, the Haitian Government will put the funds generated by the sale of this rice in reserve as a Counterpart Fund, which will be used later to finance social projects planned and carried out by the Haitian Government in agreement with the Japanese Government. Note that several projects finalized or underway in Haiti in educational and health sectors https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30131-haiti-reconstruction-monitoring-visit-to-construction-sites-funded-by-japan.html were financed with funds generated by the KR program.
