13 Jan 2010 description

We at the Caribbean Development Bank are deeply saddened by the news of the massive earthquake which our member country, Haiti, experienced on January 12, 2010. Our deepest sympathies go out to the Government and all residents of Haiti, as they struggle to cope with this major tragedy.

The effects of the earthquake on the people and economy are catastrophic, particularly at this time when significant progress was being made in overcoming longstanding development challenges facing the country.
