Jean Louis Robinson also wants to build an airport in all districts of the island.
Meanwhile, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, the former Minister of Finance, has put forward a liberal program, based on a double digit growth which will drain in its wake an economic boom.

"I'll do it very quickly with a strategy to develop models that take as emerging countries," said Hery Rajaonarimampianina who will also rely on the private sector to enable Madagascar to advance economically.
Hery Rajaonarimampianina wishes among other things the opening up of production areas with the provision of substantial infrastructure, as related by the Midi Madagasikara newspaper.

To recap, in the first round on October 25, Jean-Louis Robinson has collected 21.10% of the vote (955,534 votes), against 15.93% for Hery Rajaonarimampianina (721,206 votes).
