Haiti

  Neena Gill, on behalf of the S&D Group. – Madam President, High Representative, as we’ve already heard, Haiti is a country almost on the brink of collapse. Economic struggles have led to violent protests and shootings with dozens of deaths, at least 20 people killed at the hands of the security forces, and many more have been severely injured.

The violence has led to children missing school and people struggling to access sufficient food, drinking water, medicine and fuel. The health sector is facing shortages in electricity, fuel, supplies and an inability to reach people in need of treatment. The EU needs to play a real effort to find a meaningful inclusive resolution to the current solution, especially addressing concerns around corruption.

Haiti is an ACP partner. Ensuring its sustainable development is vital if we are serious in the effort to tackle the climate change, corruption and chaos there.

High Representative, what leverage are you using, given that we have hundreds of millions of euros through EDF to push for a political solution to alleviate the suffering of the people of Haiti?

And finally, I would once again like to wish you all the best for your future endeavours, and thank you very much for everything you have done.
