Haiti - Economy : Textile sector could create 300,000 jobs in 8 years
The Association of Haitian Industries (ADIH) is calling for better exploitation of the Hope/Help Act in force until 2025 to create more jobs in Haiti. For Georges Sassine, ADIH President, there are many opportunities around the world in the textile sector, however Haiti will have to make a lot of effort to exploit them.

Businessman Andy Apaid, responsible for coordinating communication with the various sectors of national life, the textile sector alone can provide more than 300,000 jobs in the next 8 years and generate $ 6 billion in exports per year. "Other countries that do not even own 50 per cent of the opportunities of Haiti manage to emerge economically thanks to this sector, thanks to the determination and the will of their leaders".

Georges Sassine recalls that thanks to the Hope / Help law, Haiti can buy raw materials all over the world to process them on its territory and then export the finished product to the United States (until 2025) without paying customs duties. Vocational training for a skilled workforce is important, we are building at the SONAPI a Service and Training Center with the assistance of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID - Haiti). A training center was also built in Caracol with the help of the South Korean Government http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-10707-haiti-training-establishment-of-the-garment-technology-training-center-in-caracol.html In three months, these two Centers will be in operation to meet the training needs of the workers.
