This donation of 6,100 metric tonnes (50% of Japanese rice and 50% of US rice) at a cost of US $3.67 million was made available to the Government of Haiti by Japan.

This rice will be sold at a preferential price by BMPAD, which will help stabilize prices, improve access to basic food on the local market and the funds generated will be used to carry out socio-economic projects for the benefit of the population across the national territory.
