As part of his continued message of giving priority to the agricultural sector, Haitian President Jovenel Moise earlier today visited one of the largest agricultural farms in the country, the Mourra Agricultural Farms, a recently inaugurated modern farm located in the Plaine du Cul de Sac.
The president met with Jerry Mourra, the CEO of the company which will specialize in producing vegetables such as eggplants, peppers and tomatoes, to learn about his business and how the government can help expand his production.
Speaking to reporters, Jerry Mourra said that he shares the president view that"to have a prosperous Haiti, we must begin with agriculture." Jerry said that he told the president about all the hardships but also the opportunities.
President Moise talked about the study of a dam on the grey River that has been done long time ago, but never implemented. The president would like for the dam to come into fruition because according to him, the Haitian government owns some 15.000 ha of lands nearby that are currently being wasted.
Moise didn't specify how the country would pay for such a project, but hinted at a possible public/private partnership.
