Haiti PM has high hopes for Canada aid
2013-04-20 13:57:39 | (0 Comments)
Haiti’s Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe has expressed optimism that the Canadian Government will review its decision halt new aid projects in his country.
Lamothe comments came after he held talks with Canada’s International Co-operation Minister Julian Fantino yesterday.
In January, Fantino announced that Canada would discontinue new aid projects in Haiti while it conducted a review of the programme.
The announcement came two months after Fantino visited the earthquake-ravaged country and revealed that he was disappointed with the lack of progress.
However, as he emerged from yesterday’s meeting, which was also attended by representatives of various international donor agencies, Prime Minister Lamothe says no formal agreements have been reached.
However, he says he remains hopeful that some decisions will be taken at next month’s donor-coordination conference in Port-au-Prince.
