Remember that Wednesday, April 17, the Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe intervening at "Roxbury Community College" before the Haitian community in Boston, announced that the airport of Cap Haitien will be named "Hugo Chavez International Airport" in recognition of the late President of Venezuela. A decision hailed by some and criticized by others.

Kelly Bastien one of the opponents, strongly protested against this name, describing the decision of the Government, of disrespectful to our national heroes "The fact to baptized the Cap Haitien International Airport : Airport Hugo Chavez could let believe that no Haitian has marked the history of our country..."

Saul Gauthier, Co-leader of the Initiative Citoyenne (IC), greets on his side, the government's decision as an important act of recognition, stating that the $30 million that will cost the the works of expansion and modernization of the Cap-Haitien airport, coming from Petrocaribe funds are not a gift from Venezuela, but a loan to repay at very preferential terms, as all funds drawn from the Petrocaribe funds. Remember that Haiti in this context owes $938 million to Venezuela...
