Within the framework of the 10th EDF, the European Commission initiated a State consolidation budget-support programme with the Haitian government. The programme provides for the improvement of public finance management, and the fostering of tax reform in Haiti. The Haitian Minister of Economy and Finance requested from the European Union delegation, the provision of French public expertise. Within this context, Expertise France executed a first identification mission, from the 7th to the 12th of December 2015.
