US bishops: Extend, expand trade preferences for Haiti

Catholic World News - March 05, 2010

The bishops of the United States have called for the extension and eventual expansion of trade preferences for Haiti in order to promote “long-term sustainable development that coordinates different US government agencies in an integrated approach, engaging other groups with expertise and experience with Haiti.”

The bishops’ statement of support for trade preferences came in a letter from Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, chairman of the Committee on International Justice and Peace of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), to members of the Senate Finance and Foreign Relations Committee. The USCCB released the text of the letter on March 4, nearly two weeks after it was written.
