Haiti's prime minister said Friday that his government has made headway in rebuilding the country following a devastating earthquake four years ago, citing a drop in the number of people living in settlements camps and the construction of thousands of new houses.

With senior officials at his side, Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe delivered a progress report on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the 2010 quake.

In the presentation, Lamothe highlighted the construction of more than 5,000 homes, the arrival of more than 700,000 tourists last year, the distribution of 55,000 seed kits to farmers and economic growth.

Haiti ap fè avan pou yon sekte ki nan haute class la. Lamothe ap fè ampil komision sou negotiation byen papal te mouri kitè pouli, bien entendu ki pa Dessalines en touka.
