Visit of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to Haiti

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, went to Haiti on 23 and 24 April 2010, to launch the first projects for reconstruction that will be funded by the EU. This was the first high-level EU visit to Haiti since the International Donors’ Conference "Towards a New Future for Haiti" held on 31 March in New York, during which the EU collectively pledged more than 1.2 billion euros for Haiti's reconstruction.
Andris Piebalgs signed five financing agreements for projects funded by the European Commission, which will provide 460 million euros to the reconstruction and development of the country. These projects will focus on rebuilding of the State, infrastructures such as schools and roads, and the social sectors.
During the visit, Andris Piebalgs met with René Préval, President of Haiti, and Jean-Max Bellerive, Haitian Prime Minister, as well as with representatives of the private sector and NGOs, who are key actors for the reconstruction.
