PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, May 21, 2013
Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe leaves Brazil’s capital city today following two days of meetings focused on strengthening ties with Brazil and encouraging private sector investments in Haiti’s developing economy.
The MOUs between Haiti and Brazil focus on increasing trade, training of Haitian diplomats, investment promotion, and technical cooperation in agriculture. A particular agreement in agriculture calls for increasing food safety through the improvement of seed production and the training of small farmers. The Brazilian government agreed to work with the Haitian government to find ways to establish preferential terms for the sale of buses, police pick-up trucks, police gear and communication equipment.
