Oxfam Calls on US to Stop Subsidizing Haitian Rice Exports

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Aid agency Oxfam Internation say that the United States' policy of subsidizing rice exported to Haiti is hampering the beleaguered nation's ability to be self-sufficient. Twenty years ago, Haiti produced nearly all of its own rice. Today, the country imports nearly 80 percent due to subsidization policies from wealth nations like the U.S. The BBC's Mark Doyle gives us the latest on the story.
