Fernandez to cut ribbon for university in Haiti next week

Santo Domingo.- Part of president Leonel Fernandez’s security detail is already in Port-au-Prince coordinating details of his next week’s visit with Haiti’s authorities, to inaugurate a university which the Dominican Government builds in the neighboring nation.

In the aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake Fernandez pledged the construction of the higher learning center in the Haiti community Limonade, at a cost of around US$50.0 million shared with the Dominican private sector, in an area of 300,000 square meters.

The university is part of Santo Domingo’s package of humanitarian aid provided to Haiti after the quake, making Dominican Republic one of the countries which has most supported Port-au-Prince economically per capita.
