Haiti - Reconstruction : Visit of the IDB president, Luis Alberto Moreno
Luis Alberto Moreno, Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) President will travel to Haiti Feb. 27 and 28 to meet with Haitian government authorities, to visit IDB-financed projects and to attend to the 5th board meeting of the Interim Haitian Reconstruction Commission (IHRC).

The IDB is Haiti's leading multilateral donor. Last year it approved $251 million in grants and disbursed $177 million for projects carried out by Haitian government agencies and for direct budget support. The IDB's support focuses on six priority areas for the country's reconstruction and long-term development: transportation, education, water and sanitation, agriculture, energy and private sector investment.

On Sunday, Feb. 27, prior to a series of meetings with Haitian officials, Moreno will visit a cholera treatment center (Gheskio). In December the IDB and Spain approved $20 million in grants for Haiti's efforts to combat cholera. About half the funds have been disbursed to UNICEF, which is helping the Haitian Ministry of Public Health (MSPP) expand a network of cholera treatment units (UTC) and centers.

On Monday, Feb. 28, before the IHRC meeting, Moreno will visit the facilities of INDEPCO, a network of garment microentrepreneurs, nearby the international airport. Last year an IDB affiliate, the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), provided INDEPCO financial assistance to recover from the earthquake. The MIF is now working with the organization to help its members access higher value export markets.

Before departing for Central America, Moreno will attend an IHRC board meeting chaired by President Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive at the Hotel Karibe. Over the past year the IHRC has analyzed and approved several IDB-financed projects in sectors such as education, water and sanitation, agriculture, transportation, housing and credit for small and medium-size enterprises.
