The Regional Office of Social Affairs of Southeast of Petit Goâve has marked the Agriculture and Labor Day, this May 1, 2012, by organizing with different sectors of the city a day of reflection on issues related to agriculture and unemployment. Different personalities spoke during the day.

"Our vegetation cover is decreasing every day. Reforestation of the country appears to be an imperative and citizens must therefore, plant each a tree to improve the vegetation cover and fight against possible floods" declared in his intervention, Mr. Abdallah Moncy, the Director General of the Town Hall.

For his part, Me. Arentz Mars, the representative of justice, argued that on a economic point of view the country was declining, that it gone from being an exporter to an importer "[...] on a economic point of view, our country is decreasing, we import food, whereas before we were exporting coffee, cotton and other foodstuffs. Today, we export almost nothing. We need to revive the domestic production so that we can have our economic independence. Without economic independence, the country will go nowhere. A collective awareness is needed in Haiti, imitate our grandparents who gave us trees. Each of us must plant a tree as it was the case in the past on the occasion of May 1 [...] the salvation of Haiti depends on the union of all Haitians."

Mr. Rathon Rosman, the Director of Social Services of the regional office of Petit Goâve, has appealed to national and international investment for the country's progress and to the harmony between employers and workers for the smooth running of companies. Emphasizing the lack of equipment and lack of means of transport (vehicles and motorcycles) to which is faced the office of Social Affairs who must serve Léogâne, Grand Goâve and he asked the authorities concerned to provide the means of operation.

As the Director of Municipal Agricultural Bureau of Petit-Goave, Sterlin Frenel, he asked the civic responsibility and patriotism of the population "Each citizen must accomplish its task in a right way, regardless of its industry. Let's get to work, Haiti is not poor, they are the Haitians who are poor... If we wish it, we will be able to make advancing our country."
