US Promises To Help Haiti "All The Way"

 WASHINGTON -  The United States insisted it will help Haiti recover “all the way.”

U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, made the promise to President-elect, Michel Martelly, during his first visit to the U.S. as Haiti’s next head of state.

Clinton said she is also very enthused at the election of the former Kompas singer. “I’m very encouraged by the campaign that Mr. Martelly ran, his emphasis on the people and their needs, his willingness to be very clear on what he hoped to achieve on their behalf,” Clinton said.
Martelly admitted he has huge challenges ahead and criticized the “desperately slow” pace of reconstruction in his country.

He added that he would dedicate his first six months in office to tackling the cholera epidemic which has been sweeping the country, getting those still living in tent cities into permanent accommodation and boosting agricultural production.

“This is why recovering and restarting the economy is a fundamental necessity for my government. This is why I plan on working relentlessly towards the reconstruction of the framework of international aid, to give new life to the business sector, and to develop the capabilities of government institutions and of civil society,” he said.

“My new vision for my country is to engage in all of the useful and necessary reforms to ensure that Haiti will be a full member of the modernity of the 21st century.”
