Haiti Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe is heading to Washington, DC for a meeting with Haiti’s technical and financial partners this week.

Lamothe’s visit to America’s capital will begin Monday and last for a two-day period.

Haiti’s Prime Minister will be joined by a delegation including Senate President Simon Desras Dieuseul, Economy and Finance Minister Marie Carmelle Jean-Marie and Haiti Ambassador to the United States Paul Altidor.

The group will hold talks with senior executives of the IMF and the World Bank.

The discussions will reportedly focus on issues of financial management in general and financial support in particular.

In a statement ahead of the trip, Lamothe said he was determined to work “tirelessly” for the revival of Haiti.
