Haiti - Politic : End of the visit of Martelly in the USA
The President Michel Martelly, just finished a weekend of work in favor to the National Fund for Education and of the effective involvement of the Haitian diaspora in the development of the country. This trip, which is part of the "Diaspora Weekend Appreciation" which is part of the Action Plan of the Presidency for the first 100 days, led him to Miami and NY on June 25 and 26, 2011.

In Miami, the President of the Republic met with businessmen, community leaders and local elected officials including the Mayor of Miami, Thomas Regalado, who gave him the keys to the city.

The President has took advantage of these meetings to continue to promote the movement of change and renewal of the country and serve to his interlocutors that a new era is emerging for Haiti. He invited the Haitian compatriots to become, now, the first tourists and ambassadors of the new Haiti. He has, among other things, reiterated his support to the approach of the diaspora that require the dual citizenship to get more involved in national affairs.

The country is now "open to investment" is one of the most resounding messages delivered by the Head of State who invites the Haitians of everywhere, to divorce of the practice which consists to say anything bad about its own country to having a clear conscience. He invites them to offer to the world all that Haiti has of marvellous, all its tourist and economic potentialities.

The President urged the compatriots from abroad to continue to support the financing of the National Fund for Education, allowing him to open doors to schools to more than 500,000 children in the first time, and ensure access to over two million who need it by the end of his term. The head of State promised to ensure the proper use of each cent belonging to this Fund.

In New York, the President was received by members of the Federation of the Diaspora for a business lunch and of fundraising. Then, he visited Sam Dalembert Foundation for a dinner, also of fundraising in honor of Haiti and for the education project of the President of the Republic.

In both cases, and in many other events that marked his stay in the United States, the involvement of these compatriots in the Renewal of Haiti and their support to the National Fund for Education of the President Martelly have been at the centre of discussions.
