Haitian President Jovenel Moise, is expected to make an official visit to Bolivia. The upcoming trip was announced by President Moise himself on Monday, during a press conference at the diplomatic lounge of the Toussaint Louverture International Airport, in Port-au-Prince, upon his return from the 8th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Americas, in Lima, Peru.
The President said that he will bring with him a delegation made up of officials from the Ministry of Planning and External Cooperation, the Ministry of Agriculture and other officials. According to the President: “Haiti and Bolivia have points in common in several sectors.” Therefore this trip will enable him to draw inspiration from Bolivia, especially in terms of water policy, said the President.

"We will see with our own eyes the results achieved by President Morales' of Bolivia in terms of water management," said Jovenel Moise, adding that it will be up to his team to correct what needs to be corrected in this area in Haiti.

"It is abnormal that a country like Haiti loses more than 40 billion cubic meters of water every year, whereas recently farmers, despite the work done under the Caravane of Change in Artibonite, have reported a deficit of one hundred hectares of land due to a lack of water, "lamented the president.

In addition, the Haitian president has discussed the idea of ​​a possible partnership between the Haitian State and a Bolivian company for the construction of a cable car line to connect the city of Cap-Haitien and the touristic port of Labadee.

The President has not yet said which date exactly the trip will take place.
