Road building and electricity remain the focus of President Jovenel’s development projects. Our travels between the centrally located capital of Port au Prince and the northern city of Cap Haitian led us to the
asphalting of a shorter road between the two cities.
The European Union has partnered with a local Haitian road company and is widening, grading and paving a once deeply rutted, often muddy Route Nationale 2 that connects large cities. Many years ago, we took this road for a rough, dusty 16 hours to PaP;
last month it took a mere 6 hours and it isn’t even finished yet.
