Haiti - Economy : $41M from IDB for Caracol Industrial Park
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has approved a $41 million grant for the fifth and last phase of the Caracol Industrial Park (CIP).

The CIP contributes to economic development in the north of the country, a priority for the Haitian government, by offering attractive conditions for companies to invest and generate formal employment.

The current stage of the project aims to create 5,400 new jobs, of which about two-thirds will be filled by women. Let's recall that by end-September CIP employed 7,620 workers, and its goal is to reach 20,000 jobs by 2020. The industrial park also helps strengthen Haiti´s economic diversification and export profile.

The new grant from the IDB, which has contributed a total $200.5 million to the project since 2011, will finance construction of factory shells and other infrastructure within the Park. It will also support SONAPI, the Haitian government agency in charge of industrial parks, in its efforts to monitor and enforce environmental, social, health, and safety rules. SONAPI will also develop a business plan to ensure its long-term sustainability.

Let's recall that during the project’s initial stages, industrial buildings, internal roads, a wastewater treatment plant and water purification plant were built. The U.S. government donated a power plant that provides energy to CIP factories as well as to some 9,000 households in nearby communities.

The IDB is Haiti’s leading multilateral donor. Since the 2010 earthquake the Bank has approved for Haiti more than $1.25 billion in grants for agriculture, water and sanitation, energy, education, transport, private sector development, and employment projects, as well as for strengthening governmental institutions.
