The ANDC (Academie Nationale Diplomatique et Consulaire) is a public school which was founded in 1988 when former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's government made the decision to recall a diplomatic post in Canada's city, Montreal. The future head of the school, often referred to as NORAD, Myrtho Bonhomme was, at the time, the Consul General and the ICAO's (International Civil Aviation Organization for the United Nations) Permanent Haitian Representative. When it began, ANDC had 30 enrolled students and its training was centered on teaching diplomacy through economic and political science.
Bonhomme spoke last year of the reduction of the school's population to only 220, 60%, after the January 12, 2010 earthquake. Many students left the country, not to mention the inevitable recession the devastation caused in the country. Many were unable to return to school.
On 14th December 2102, both Haiti and Sri Lanka established diplomatic relations, formally. On behalf of Sri Lanka a MOU was signed by the Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Dr. Palitha Kohona. On behalf of Haiti, the MOU was signed by Permanent Representative of the Republic of Haiti, Mr. Jean Wesley Cazeau.
Sharing Of Common Goals
After joining the United Nations, both the developing nations Haiti and Sri Lanka have shared goals in commonat home and internationally, note Dr. Kohona. Over 2 centuries back, one of the first nations to gain independence from the French colonial rulers was Haiti.
After gaining independence, the struggle against colonization continued. Amidst this struggle, they continued extending support to other countries in the region. Both the nations have been the Non Aligned Movements' active members, elaborates Dr.Kohona.
