US Ambassador to Haiti calls on country’s diaspora to help | Miami Herald

“They need your help, your advice in order to scale up their enterprises to the next level,” Michele Sison said, delivering the keynote address at the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida’s annual 20Under 40 Top Young Professionals award ceremony. “Together, you are a strong force that could help shape the Haitian-American partnership in the years to come. We want to partner with Haiti in that.”

Sison’s appearance at the event came as Haiti’s Lower Chamber of Deputies in Port-au-Prince held a confirmation hearing on nominated Prime Minister Jean Henry Céant, 61, and his 18-member ministerial cabinet.

Early Saturday morning, following a marathon session that lasted nearly 16 hours, the Haitian Senate voted 21 in favor, five against and two abstentions to ratify the new government and Céant’s political program.
