Regional leaders pledge continued support for Haiti
Caribbean heads of government have pledged to support Haiti’s new President Jovenel Moise who attended his first meeting of the regional body in Guyana on Thursday.
“Mr. President your clear-cut victory, in the first round of elections, was an indication of the confidence that your people have in your ability to lead them to a better life. I look forward to working closely with you and your administration, towards Haiti’s further integration into CARICOM,” said CARICOM Secretary General Irwin LaRocque in his remarks at the opening of the 28th Inter-Sessional meeting on Thursday morning.
Outgoing CARICOM Chairman, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica said he is looking for the “fresh insight” that Moise will bring to CARICOM deliberations.
While, Guyana’s President David Granger, said he was inspired by the Haitian president’s passion and commitment to his people and the region.
Moise was sworn in as Haiti’s 58th president, on February 7.
