In this agreement "Diskòb has 3 months of implementation and 6 months of grace before implementing this provision," said Émmelie Prophète adding that wanting to be a platform in accordance with the law, this memorandum of understanding between "Diskòb and the BHDA reflects a concern for professionalism and transparency and confirms the Government's commitment to cultural actors while encouraging local investments for the benefit of Haitian music."
