For Henry, a 71-year-old neurosurgeon, the new government is a team of “consensus”. Reactivating the economy and restoring security are their priorities.

“I accepted this mission with great humility and wisdom”, said Henry, calling for the “unity” of the Haitians, establishing dialogue “as the main option for the resolution of conflicts”. “We must restore trust and the authority of the State in all corners of the country”, he stressed.
