Here is a picture of the new National Authorizing Officer of EDF Director, Mr. Jean Jacques Charles
On February 26, 2015, the Prime Minister Evans, Paul has appointed Jean Jacques Charles as the new National Authorizing Officer of the European Development Fund (EDF). EDF is authorized to co-manage the EDF resources on behalf of the government, as well as the resources of the National Indicative Program (NIP) and those of the Regional Indicative Program (RIP). Haiti will hold the rotating Presidency of this fund allocated to CARRICOM countries from July 1. We might remember that the new EDF National Authorizing Officer was a senior government official who had worked directly with the EU on issues of socioeconomic developments. He was the former Minister of Labor and Social Affairs in Haiti since January 25, 2013 and he worked tirelessly for the people to improve his ministry and those he served.
