"

Solomon reminded that the State prioritizes renewable energies and prepaid electricity consumption, aware that subsidies to Electricity of Haiti (EDH) constitute one of the most important sources of public deficits.

Note that Haiti is one of the last 10 countries in Latin America to maintain diplomatic ties with Taiwan. Indeed, after 69 years of diplomatic relations, the Dominican Republic broke off diplomatic relations with Taiwan last night and chose to establish them formally with the People's Republic of China, a partner deemed more beneficial for the future of their country.
