On Tuesday, May 22nd, the Queen of Spain, Her Majesty, Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, made a visit to Haiti, her first in the Caribbean country. She was received at the Toussaint L’Ouverture International Airport, in Port-au-Prince, by the Haitian First Lady Martine Moise, before jointly presiding over a meeting in the Technical Cooperation Office of Haiti, which was attended by representatives of Spanish NGOs and other International organisations as well as Haitian officials.

The visit of the Spanish Queen comes two days after she made a stop in the neighboring Dominican Republic.

Since 2005 Haiti is considered a priority country by the Spanish government which has intensified cooperation in sectors such as water, sanitation, education, agriculture and fisheries.

In the water and sanitation sector, a priority because of the fight against the cholera epidemic, the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID) offers technical support to the National Directorate of Water Drinking water and sanitation (DINEPA) since 2010. Spanish cooperation works to rehabilitate and expand drinking water distribution networks in the country's 12 metropolises.

Queen Letizia is expected to spend 24 hours in Haiti before returning to Spain.
