It has come to the understanding of all of those opportunists to give the priority to the infrastructure of this contry named Haiti.

If there are no roads, no regulations in the trafic, how can we become a contry where the industries will take a big stage 0n our economy.The contry-side need transportation to bring their products to the cities, it'st time for us to consume our own fresh vegetables, fruits, and cereal, we are a agricultural contry we are not giving up. Any one named minister should give a 20% of their pay check every month to bring some change in the life of certain people living under poverty.This money colected can feed more than 2000 children every day, they will be the one who will replace those minsters in the furtur.This is my

You said it right! unfortunately, "learning from mistakes or from near death experience" doesn't really concern Haitians.

But my question is, why was it so important for them to have this "political reflection retreat" outside of P-A-P for?

I think that was arrogance and waste of money that Haiti doesn't

Thank God for his guiding hand. Harry S. Truman knew the importance of good infrastructure and as can be seen in the United States, roads paid for themselves in increased wealth of the areas they serve.

The events of yesterday point out one reason for Haiti to put infrastructure on the top of the list. Outdated, worn out and non-existent roads cost time, money and lives.

The longer Haiti waits to bring safe roads, the more it will cost them. Without the proper infrastructure Haiti will miss out on a multitude of opportunities to generate income.

It does not make any difference as to which mode of transportation one chose.

Donkeys, horse, mule, Bicycle, motorcycle, automobile, boat, aircraft all are equally dangerous under perfunctory conditions.

It was not an accident.

I am happy that all abord the helicopter are safe. I agree with you. The Haitian government need to built the damn roads.

There is no reason for Haiti not to have decent roads for people to travel around the country.

Keep saying it like it is Sir. Until we get the country's infrastruture in place, we cannot attract tourists and give them a reason to come back to Haiti in great numbers like in the
