Here is the lan for the construction project of the new Ministry of Education.

On Tuesday, January 12, 2016, at the Marriott Hotel, President Martelly inaugurated the construction project of the new Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training (MENFP) building. The President was accompanied by the Prime Minister Evans Paul and other important governmental personalities. The construction will start from next March with a target for completion before the new academic year 2017-2018. During the January 12, 2010 earthquake, several students, teachers, principals, including 11 employees of the Ministry of Education died under the rubble of the collapsed training building. During the occasion, President took the opportunity to salute all the government employees who have worked uninterruptedly despite poor conditions and bad weathers from their temporary shelters in tents. The building over an area of 8,000 square meters will be constructed at a cost of $12 million of which $4 million will come from the treasury and the remaining from the Interamerican Development Bank (IDB)
