OAS leadership says perseverance has led to progress in Haiti

Four years after the earthquake which devastated Haiti, the leadership of the Organization of American States (OAS) says the nation has become a place of perseverance, and opportunity.

Noting the anniversary of the tragedy that crippled the Caribbean nation four years ago on January 10, 2010, the Secretary General of the OAS, Jose Miguel Insulza, and the Assistant Secretary General of the OAS and Chair of the Group of Friends of Haiti and the Haiti Task Force Albert Ramdin, described the progress in Haiti as “concrete” and “inspiring.”

“We have seen the government and people of Haiti persevere, work through issues, find opportunities and secure results,” said Secretary General Insulza. “Today, although much remains to be done, Haiti can demonstrate concrete results and the journey is inspiring,” added the OAS leader.

Working with the government of Haiti, private sector agencies, international partners, member states and observers, the OAS has provided technical support to the country in areas ranging from trade facilitation and business development to tourism and education, among other areas.
