Michel Martelly Inaugurated Sports Complex, Ouanaminthe

President Michel Martelly visited the department of North-East including the town of Ouanaminthe on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. He was accompanied by Magalie Racine, the Minister of Sports and Civic Activities, Mr. Rony Pierre, the Mayor of the city, Jacques Thomas, the Minister of the Environment, the deputy of Ouanaminthe, Mr. Lucner Noel and many other bureaucrats and senior government officials. There, on this trip, he opened the door of the largest sports complex at Ouanaminthe, on the Haiti border town.


The sports complex, in addition to meeting the standards, has a seating capacity for 500 spectators. It includes a soccer field, a court for basketball and a mixed area for volleyball and tennis. Moreover, there are adequate facilities for physical training, cloakrooms and administrative office. While inaugurating he mentioned that if you have proper land and resources, you can develop your community yourself. Thereafter, the Head of State renewed his commitments to build adequate infrastructure under the youth development program all across the country--this is a program in consistence with government's pledge for social and health security of the nation.

After the inauguration program the President went on to check the dependability of the drainage system to protect the city from flooding by river Massacre. "Phase one of the Protection Project of the city Ouanaminthe" has just been completed. Although the river Massacre entered Ouanaminthe city nine times this year, the city was not flooded even a single time during the year. The Ministry of Environment has performed a marvelous colossal work by constructing the 300 meters long, 4 meters high and 4 meters wide gabion structure.
