Should Haiti play bigger role in its own reconstruction?
The prime minister of Haiti, has criticised the international community for not allowing his country to play a bigger role in its own reconstruction, following an earthquake in January.
Jean-Max Bellerive told the BBC that his government had too little influence because aid money was channelled through outside agencies. He said much of the money promised by donors has failed to reach the country.
The earthquake in Haiti killed 230,000 people and left 1.5 million homeless.
Do you agree with the prime minister's comments? Should the Haitian government be responsible for its own aid money? Or do the people of Haiti need to rely on outside agencies to survive?
