Stating that it is necessary to have more control over non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Let's be clear, I have nothing against NGOs, we need them. What I need is to have control over what they do in my country, where they do it and with whom they are doing it, and at what cost".

He recalled that only 20% of aid promised by donors for the first year [less than $ 1 billion] have been received to date, that changes in the lives of Haitians were not visible and than 1.5 million Haitians were still living in camps.
