In accordance with the wishes of the President Martelly, the Prime Minister, Dr. Garry Conille had, in the statement of his general policy, included in its future strategies the opportunity and the necessity of building a new model of economic development. The Prime Minister put on the job to enable the country to share its wealth and the interest of preferential arrangements, as the HOPE Act will allow it, via the jobs created, to provide a better protection against all social vulnerabilities.
