Haiti receives support from Canada

Postby KarenS » Wed May 03, 2006 6:36 am

From "OTTAWA‚ÄĒCanada is contributing an additional $48 million to help Haiti's President-elect Ren√© Pr√©val rebuild the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
'It's a critical time for Haiti,' Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay told the Star. 'Obviously, having now gone through the elections that will necessitate the formation of the new government, this is the time where they need the international community most.'

Of the $48 million, $20 million is for a local development program that helps small business promotion, environmental protection and agricultural productivity; $5 million will strengthen parliament; $5 million goes to a local fund that supports good governance and human rights, and $18 million will help pay down Haiti's debt to the Inter-American Development Bank."
