Haitian President seeks textile cooperation with Zambia

Mar '14
Haitian President Michel Joseph Martelly has called on Zambia to partner with his country, as the two countries share a common heritage and have a lot in common, especially in the textile sector, according to a statement from the Zambian Embassy in Washington D.C.
 
Speaking in Port au Prince when Zambia's Ambassador to Haiti Palan Mulonda presented his credentials, President Martelly urged the two countries to cooperate in exploiting the American market where selected products of both the countries enjoy preferential treatment, especially under the apparel and agro products category.
 
Mr. Martelly said Haiti was open to investment as the country was rebuilding after the massive earthquake that destroyed much of the country's infrastructure. He clarified that his country was looking for investment that created employment instead of charity and proposed for a Zambian business delegation to see the opportunities available in Haiti.
 
The President said his country is keen on working with African countries and called for result-oriented partnerships with Zambia if the two countries are to fully develop their economies.
 
In response, Ambassador Mulonda pledged to enhance the bilateral relations between the two nations in the areas of agriculture and the textile industry, which were priority areas for President Michael Chilufya Sata.
 
He added that Zambia stands ready to collaborate and share experiences under the preferential treatment initiatives on access to the American market.
