Haiti - Tourism : Unique Haiti, magic Haiti !
As a prelude to the Business Forum Haiti-Quebec held in Montreal last week, was held an exhibition on voodoo culture under the theme "the Bewitchment". Ms. Stéphanie Balmir Villedrouin, the Minister of Tourism delivered a speech at the inauguration of this event.

Speech by the Minister of Tourism Stéphanie Balmir Villedrouin :

Voodoo is in Everything, it is tautological in the expressions of each, both at the level of the laborious daily, than at the level of representations of the artistic creation (dance, music, literature, cuisine, cinema, painting and sculpture) both traditional and modern.

During the first hundred days, the President Martelly wanted to personally meet the deans of the artisanal sector, a pillar of tourism development and this, in a symbolic place, the market Hyppolite. Clearly, this demonstrates the willingness and the commitment of the Government, to put the culture and the tourism in the heart of economic development for social peace [...] "
