Using U.S. Influence to Help Haiti Cancel its Debts
U.S. President Barack Obama has signed H.R. 4573 (PL 111-158), a law that directs the secretary of the U.S. Treasury to instruct the U.S. executive directors at the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, and other multilateral development institutions to use the voice, vote, and influence of the United States to cancel immediately and completely Haiti’s debts to those institutions.
