Entrepreneurs denounce political war

Officials of the American Chamber of Commerce in Haiti (Amcham) denounce the stagnation of the crisis and refer back to back the protagonists. In a statement, the entrepreneurs condemn the political war that accentuates the impoverishment of the population. The Haitian people, already living in conditions of extreme poverty, are now "taken hostage, by a political war between the Executive, the Legislative and the opposition, leaving the only destruction of property and people on their passage. "

AmCham points out that the general climate of insecurity affecting the Haitian population as a whole is causing "an unprecedented deterioration of the national economy that is gradually destroying the formal business sector: Inflation exceeding 19%, a depreciation of the currency close to 40%, and the absence of a national budget for 2 consecutive years.

In the last five months, Amcham said it had noted the failure of the executive and legislative powers to work together to put in place an effective Government capable at least of meeting the basic needs of the population.

AmCham leaders urge "President of the Republic, Jovenel Moise, senators, MPs, and opposition actors to show humanity and respect towards the Haitian people, who can not continue to subsist under the current conditions ". "We ask you to agree to put aside your various interests and to focus this time on the common interests of the Nation. We ask you to behave as statesmen and take the necessary decisions to get the country out of the country. chaos, because time is bad! "
