The fourth meeting of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC), originally scheduled on Tuesday in Port-au-Prince, had to be moved because of post-election violence. This meeting will be held Tuesday in Santo Domingo at the Hilton Hotel from 2pm.

He has canceled his visit in Dominican Republic, during which he was to have with President Leonel Fernández, discussions in the course of the Bilateral Joint Commission.

Edwin Parison, the Minister of the Haitian diaspora, said that the cancellation of the visit of President Preval is due to post-election crisis. The head of state is involved in numerous meetings and contacts with local and international officials seeking a solution to the political crisis in Haiti since the publication of the preliminary results disputed of the elections made on November 28th, 2010.

The IHRC will be co-chaired by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Jean Max Bellerive, to discuss, in the presence of delegations from 26 member countries, representatives of the Organization of American States (OAS) and representatives of Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), of the new projects submitted for approval by the authorities of Haiti.

This meeting will be followed by "commitments" of international donors. The IHRC continues to be the subject of much criticism for its inaction, its deficit of result and its strategical direction decided outside of the organized sectors of Haitian society.

While less than 10% of funds pledged by international has been disbursed, Temístocles Montás, the Dominican Minister of Economy, Planning and Development, shows a cautious optimism, fearing that this is still the same. Many projects will be submitted and approved, while the financing of projets already approved previously, is still not completed or is nonexistent...

In this regard, he reiterated firmly on the international community to keep its promises, and to release as quickly as possible, financial resources for the reconstruction of Haiti.
