Talks with Haiti to resume
Speaking with business leaders in Santiago yesterday, Monday 11 April 2016, Foreign Relations Minister Andres Navarro said that over the next few days talks will resume with the Haitian authorities to try and improve relations between the two countries.
On 28 March 2016, the government of Haiti swore in Pierrot Delienne as new minister of foreign relations, interior and territorial communities.
As reported in Haiti Libre, Delienne holds an MBA (1983) from the University of Quebec in Montreal, one in Business Administration BA and law degree from the State University of Haiti. He was a professor of marketing and program manager at Quisqueya University and expert consulting in Haiti with several companies. He became Minister Counselor at the Haitian Mission at the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva in 2006.
Navarro said the break in talks was caused by the economic and political problems the Haitian government has had to deal with.
Navarro announced that the Dominican Republic would be visited by 10,000 people for the 46th General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) and a meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC). He said that several of the meetings would be taking place in Santiago and Puerto Plata to ensure regional participation.
