Haiti is facing two main challenges: creating economic progress and conducting  legislative and local elections.

That assessment comes from Mariano Fernández, the head of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), who is in New York this week.

MINUSTAH has been on the ground since 2004, following on from previous peacekeeping operations and other UN involvement in the Caribbean country which began more than two decades ago.

Mr. Fernández spoke to UN Radio's Donn Bobb about the mission's contributions to Haiti in addition to addressing some of the challenges facing the country.
