PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti – Haiti and Turkey’s governments are currently exploring ways to strengthen both countries’ relations.
During a recent telephone call, Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise and the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, discussed issues related to energy, electricity project progress, and cooperation in the fields of security, construction, and waste management.
Erdogan said Turkey and Haiti have great potential for cooperation in many areas besides energy, construction, steel, health, and services.
He added that if these cooperation areas are included, the volume of trade between both countries will rise to higher levels.
Following the conversation, Moise said that as part of the electrification of Haiti – “the Ministry of Public Works has transmitted for approval to the National Commission of Markets, the contract relates to two Turkish floating power plants to serve Cap-Haitien and improve distribution in the metropolitan area,” the President said.
He added that other areas such as Port Magot would also be electrified 24 hours a day by the Turkish boat.
