In her speech, Lourdes Édith Joseph Delouis, General Secretary of the CNEH, declared in presence of the Minister : "This support of the IE to our campaign, for quality public education for all, is a turning point in our ongoing efforts to ensure that the education system in Haiti cease to be predominantly a private system and becomes a public system, funded by the State and accessible to the greatest number."

Daniel B. Lafrenière, Executive Board member of the CSQ, speaking on behalf of representatives of trade unions of Quebec, for his part, reiterated to the Minister of Education, the importance of public education in Haiti, of an adequate training and accessible for teaching staff, of trade union rights, including collective bargaining, the unionization in addition to the participation of teacher unions in this great collective project.

The Minister Vanneur Minister Pierre, after having cordially responded to the questions of members of the Mission concluded : "For my Government, unions are full partners, who must be strong and structured. It is a pleasure for me to work with them. Together, we will make the journey. We will work with everyone, in order to give Haiti an education system that is truly national."
