Haiti - Humanitarian : Donation of $3,6M from Japan for the rice purchase
This week, in response to the request of the Haitian Government, a Grant Agreement for the 2017 Food Assistance Project (KR) of 400 million Yen (± 3.6 million US dollars) was signed during ceremony between the Haitian Chancellor Antonio Rodrigue and the Japanese Ambassador to Haiti Yoshiaki Hatta.

This amount will be used to purchase rice, which will be sold at preferential prices by the Office of Monetization of Development Assistance Programs (BMPAD) in order to stabilize the local market and contribute to the food security of the population. The funds accumulated by the Haitian Government through the sale of rice as a counterpart fund, which will enable it to carry out social projects.

Because of the many major natural hazards that have struck Haiti over the years, causing increased food insecurity among the population, the Japanese Government has decided through this donation, to support the strengthening of food security in Haiti while at the same time accompanying the Haitian Government in its efforts to increase agricultural products through the training of agricultural technicians https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-15985-haiti-agriculture-japan-and-the-dominican-republic-will-help-haitian-farmers.html https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-21250-icihaiti-japan-donation-of-more-than-150-000-bags-of-fertilizer.html
