Monday at the Karibe Convention Center, Economist Kesner Pharel, President of the Group Croissance, opened the 8th International Finance Summit (April 9-13), stressing the importance of decentralization in a process of poverty eradication and sustainable development.

In his speech, the deputy of Petit-Goâve, Limonji Samson, emphasized on the difficulties faced by municipalities in meeting their obligations, following the constraints imposed by the excessive centralization of State resources, and the need for to make corrections to this situation as soon as possible.

The Senator Francenet Denius (VERITE), President of the Commission Interior and Local Authorities, intervened on the provisions of the Senate to pass laws allowing the town halls to acquire the autonomy which is guaranteed to them by the Constitution but which do not have legal framework and to have a better functioning.

For his part Joseph Lambert, President of the Senate, invited to "break with partisan practices that can only handicap us" and drew attention to the need to invest in the agricultural sector "The time has come to change paradigm of development and we will not be able to do that by keeping our old clan reflexes."

A first panel of speakers composed of Evenson Calixte of the National Regulatory Authority of the Energy Sector (ANARSE), Edgard Jeudy, Director General of the Industrial Development Fund (FDI), Pierre Charles Lubin, Director of Operations (FDI) and Nicolas Allien from the energy unit of the Ministry of Public Works; presented the sub-theme "Rural Electrification". Stakeholders reported on the situation in the country in terms of electricity. Evenson Calixte presented ANARSE and the electrification strategies of the Moïse-Lafontant administration. Nicolas Allien, for his part, presented projects related to electrification in Haiti, while Pierre-Charles Lubin discussed the legal and financial aspects of energy programs.

For his part Michel Lelièvre, Canadian expert on local public administration and municipal finance, made a presentation aimed particularly at local elected representatives present "If your communes are strong, the capital will be strong. If your communes are weak, you will have a weak capital, "he said encouraging municipal representatives to good governance for the good development of the country.

Moreover, after the various interventions around the theme of Energy, the Canadian professor Goze Bertin Bénié developed around the geomatics at the service of the municipalities. Geomatics is, according to his explanations, an intelligent form of planning and management of the territory that could satisfy citizens, private companies and town halls. This revolutionary form of municipal management would help local elected officials in the management of: the fiscal cadastre; the legal cadastre; of the conservation and the diffusion of the data and the systematic cadastre / technical cadastre.
