The ACP-EU Assembly asks for Haiti’s foreign debt to be written off

The 19th Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP)-European Union Joint Parliamentary Assembly asked for Haiti’s foreign debt, estimated at 1 billion dollars, to be written off and stressed the need for investment in earthquake-resistant buildings and ‘massive reforestation’. It also advocated changing the development model to guarantee its effectiveness and transparency, while it asked for agriculture to play a key role in development policy.The final resolution on Haiti calls for the EU and other donor countries to help repair the structural damage suffered by the country and asks for urgent help to re-establish agriculture, which accounts for 60% of Haiti's food production. The text of the resolution also asks the EU for urgent help to meet the basic needs of children, including the construction of temporary schools.
