Haiti - Army : 500 Haitian soldiers in training from January 2019
At the Gressier military base, the rehabilitation work of the dormitories (most of them air-conditioned) where they will be staying is advancing, however according to our sources it is not certain that these dwellings will be ready in January because of budgetary constraints, which could delay the start of training...
The training, scheduled to begin on 18 January, will last almost 5 months and will be carried out by Mexican soldiers, former Haitian soldiers and some civilian experts. The Mexican authorities will send doctors, agronomists and engineers to participate in this training. In addition, Haitian army officials will receive military training in Mexico to strengthen the Corps of Engineers informed the Minister of Defense, adding that the Armed Forces of Haiti (FAd'H) also benefit from cooperation with Chile, Brazil, Ecuador and Taiwan.
