UK Opens Embassy in Haiti

“It was an honour to open the new British Embassy in Port-au-Prince — our first permanent diplomatic presence in Haiti since 1966,” Swire said. “It is a symbol of the UK government’s desire to build its relationship with the government and people of Haiti.”

Swire opened the Embassy after a three-day visit to Haiti and the Dominican Republic this week, during which he met with officials including Haiti President Michel Martelly and Prime Mnister Laurent Lamothe.

“Our new Embassy will allow us to build an even closer dialogue between our two governments and support the government of Haiti in its efforts to promote sustainable development and open up to trade and investment.” via Caribbean Journal
