Ending Blackouts in Haiti - Electricite d'Haiti (EDH) Now Open to Investors

The Haitian government wants to end the blackout in Haiti. Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe says Electricite d'Haiti (EDH) is bankrupted, unable to electrify Haiti as a whole. He wants to END BLACKOUT in Haiti. So... Investors get ready... Soon there will be a call for bids.

Theft of electricity is rampant on the grid, the Prime ministers says, EDH loosed 70% of the electicity it purchases and only provide electricity to 40% of its customers.

This is not an attempt to privatize EDH, Laurent Lamothe says, but the government is looking for a partner in the private sector, like Natcom-Teleco, to help provide a better electric infrastrucre, distribution and service across the nation.

Question: Do you think it is a good idea for the Haitian government to do to EDH as they did to TELECO?
