Haiti - FLASH : Launch of works to strengthen the electricity network of the metropolitan area
Saturday September 5, in downtown Port-au-Prince, President Jovenel Moïse, accompanied among others by Michel Présumé Director General of Electricity of Haiti (EDH) launched the work to strengthen the electricity network of the metropolitan area financed by a commercial loan of 150 million Taiwan dollars (Republic of China) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26457-haiti-politic-government-borrows-$150m-from-taiwan-for-electricity.html . Note that this is the first official loan from Taiwan's Official Development Assistance to a diplomatic ally, according to a Taiwan official.

This important project will be executed by the Taiwanese firm Overseas Engineering & Construction Corp. LTDA. S.A. (OECC) jointly with EDH

"Today we are launching the Power Grid Reinforcement Project. This operation, which will be jointly led by EDH and the Taiwanese firm OECC, constitutes an important step towards the electrification of the country," declared Moïse adding "My thanks and feelings of gratitude to the Government of Taiwan and to its President Tsai Ing-wen for this loan. The Haitian state will provide the OECC with all the assistance it needs in order to enable it to achieve the goal we set for ourselves."

Recall that this loan from Taiwan, mentioned in 2017 and whose agreement dates from 2018, has never been ratified by Haitian parliamentarians due to multiple blockades from the opposition.

"With this launch of construction work on the metropolitan network, it is one more step in the battle to eliminate blackouts and make more electricity available to the population. Every day we are moving a little more towards the goal of putting electricity 24/24 in the country https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21342-haiti-flash-moise-reiterates-his-promise-of-electricity-24-24-throughout-the-country-in-2-years.html," specified Jovenel Moïse.
