"Since 2010, the State has lost over US$1.5 billion in subsidies for oil products. This year, the situation becomes unsustainable," Economy Minister Michel Boisvert stated, stressing that law establishes that Haiti must make adjustments when oil prices rise or fall in the international market.
After consulting distributors, gas stations, and importers, authorities determined that the gasoline gallon’s price will go from US$2.0 to US$2.5, diesel oil cost will increase by US$1,84, and that of paraffin by US$1,89.
"With the elimination of subsidies, we will be able to offer more services and deploy more police officers on the streets to fight organized crime," Henry claimed.
In 1952, puppet tyrant of #Haiti Paul Magloire accepted this statue of Christopher Columbus as a "gift" from Italy. In 1986, after the fall of the Duvalier dictatorship, it was uprooted by a group of young activists and thrown into the ocean. pic.twitter.com/C0AO0CfdnH
