Haiti - Economy : «Haiti Open Data» a small revolution in the country
This week at the Marriott Hotel in Port-au-Prince, Tessa Jacques, the Director General of the Center for Investment Facilitation (CFI), in the presence of President Jovenel Moïse and his wife Martine, Koldo Echebbaria Representative of the Inter-American Bank Development Bank (IDB), members of the diplomatic corps, investors, entrepreneurs and representatives of the private business sector, officially launched the "Haiti Open Data" internet platform, a unique and powerful bilingual tool, which took several months of work done with IDB support and in partnership with a dozen local and international institutions, which provides crucial and necessary data to establish an investment plan in Haiti.

The data can be exported and is automatically updated. Data from international sources is automatically updated by an international firm "Knoema", the technical partner of the CFI which developed the platform.

The Head of State welcomed the establishment of this information platform which is a response to the inaccessibility of reliable data in Haiti that are facing both investors and other private sector actors «Today, thanks to this platform, interested parties can access the data and download it in a few minutes. This platform offers direct and real information and reliable and exploitable data on Haiti [...] This is a big step towards this much-desired modernity," said President Moïse.

The CFI Director renewed her commitment to promote and facilitate private investment in the country. "This new step in the CFI's mission is part of the Moïse/Lafontant government's vision to strengthen support for current and future investors. One of its responsibilities is to set up an information system based on the compilation, organization and dissemination of economic and commercial information produced on Haiti as well as in Haiti and abroad," adding "We are also working with our partners to identify bottlenecks in a number of administrative procedures in order to propose reforms to simplify these procedures for the benefit of investors, entrepreneurs and the public administration."

"The Inter-American Development Bank encourages any initiative to facilitate, develop or encourage entrepreneurship in Haiti. Entrepreneurship is the path that certainly leads to economic progress and development. The launch of the Haiti Open Data platform brings data and valuable information to Haitian and foreign investors. This is a small revolution in a landscape where there has always been a lack of information," declared Koldo Echebbaria, the IDB Representative.
