In his speech, the Head of State paid tribute to the partnership between the Republic of Haiti and the European Union which made it possible to launch this vast project of construction, eventually, 42 micro industrial parks.
He also took the opportunity to announce the construction of the 40 kilometers of road that connect the municipal section of Moreau to the city of Les Cayes. An approach that will contribute to significantly improve the living environment of the inhabitants and restore their dignity to the citizens of this region long isolated from the country. In addition, the "Dry Ravine", whose floods constantly threaten the population of Moreau, will be parish as part of the actions of the Caravan of Change in the Great South.
For his part, Vincent Dégert, head of the European Union delegation in Haiti, an important partner in this project initiated under the presidency of Michel Joseph Martelly, said that the South is recovering its vitality after the devastating passage of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti in October 2016. Also, he believes that the initiative of the Administration Moïse-Lafontant to boost domestic production and deconcentrate the economy, will help regain lost channels and regain openings in foreign markets.
The Mayor of Torbeck, Mrs. Guidylle Joseph, congratulated herself on this innovative initiative that could give a new image to her municipality and serve as a model for other regions of the department.
For his part, the Minister of Trade and Industry, Pierre Marie Dumeny, highlighted the importance of the materialization of this major project in this remote region of the southern department. This reflects the Moïse-Lafontant Administration's desire to promote local production and encourage the creation of more jobs for the local population, he said.
