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

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, embarked on a two-visit to Haiti. In line with the EU's commitment to help Haiti's reconstruction in the long term, he will announce an aid package which will enable Haitians to better access functioning basic services, including health, education and security. The aid package also aims to invest in economic development by improving Haitian infrastructure and increasing its support to rebuilding the State's capacity to provide services to Haitians. Andris Piebalgs also inaugurated the road section between Mirebalais and Hinche and lay the first stone of the section between Hinche and Cap Haïtien; part of the new 200km road between Port-au-Prince and Cap Haïtien (Haiti's second largest city). Thanks to this road, the journey between the cities which used to take eight hours, will now be reduced to three hours. He ended his stay in Hinche, with the inauguration of the Court - a concrete example of judicial cooperation – a primary school and pedagogical centre (EFACAP) – which offers training for teachers.
