Recall that in 2013 Haiti had recorded 643,634 cruisers.

Between a report and insecure perspectives, Minister Menos emphasized the revitalization of her ministry and mentioned that 8 tourism projects had been approved by the Interministerial Commission for Tourism Investments, for a total amount of about $35 million without explaining them...

She also mentioned the creation of new structures within the Ministry: a Cruise Management Directorate and a Directorate for the Development of Tourism Sites and Infrastructures, as well as the adoption of a set of draft legislation on tourism sector (without details) will be submitted to Parliament in the near future.

She also said that she is working on the inventory of all tourist sites, stressing the importance of taking advantage of the potential of our various natural and heritage sites, saying that "the tourism sector is the most promising sector of the national economy," without quoting figures.
