Haiti - Politic : René Jean Jumeau, Minister Delegate for Energy Security
Wednesday, a new position was created, that of Minister Delegate for Energy Security. The Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe proceeded to the installation of René Jean Jumeau, former Secretary of State for Energy in this new function.

In his speech, René Jean Jumeau declared "[...] The President of the Republic and the Prime Minister, have understood the necessity to accelerate, to intensify action to be made in this priority area, which is Energy. All other things that must be done in the country [...] need energy. The President and the Prime Minister, saw the importance of removing the issue of energy poverty, to move Haiti toward energy wealth. We will work to see how we will manage this issue of energy security..."
