Regarding the cost of reconstruction, known only to the Jury, the only piece of information we have is that mentioned in 2017 by the architect Daniel Elie member of the Presidential Commission for the reconstruction of the National Palace, which according to a rough preliminary estimate, that the reconstruction of the National Palace could cost between 40 and 50 million US dollars https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-22818-haiti-flash-the-reconstruction-of-the-national-palace-could-cost-40-to-50-million-dollars.html . According to the Commission, the financing of the Palace, the financing of the works, would be distributed over 4 fiscal years to avoid too heavy a burden for the economy of Haiti. In addition, to reduce the burden on the public treasury, the Commission is planning to raise funds and solicit the participation of government revenue-generating institutions.
Recall that the Presidential Commission for the reconstruction of the National Palace, created in April 2017 is composed of 7 members : the engineer Clément Bélizaire (Coordinator), Patrick Durandisse, Patrick Delatour, the Architect Daniel Élie, Sabine Malbranche, Georges Michel and Yvan Pinchinat.
