Haiti - Tourism : The Minister is considering the opening of 2 or 3 new cruise ports
Marie-Christine Stephenson the Minister of Tourism plans to join Haiti in the Caribbean cruises sector, as a strategy to reposition the country on the world tourist map. In this perspective, she stated that she was analyzing the possibility of opening 2 or 3 new cruise ports on the North and South coasts which, besides the creation of jobs and the revenues that will be generated in the economy of the region will help decentralize the Capital and reduce insecurity.

She also reiterated her commitment to promote ecotourism routes, recalling that there are more than 3,500 historical monuments that are not classified and that are not taken into account in the intangible natural heritage claiming "all these sites are part of ecotourism circuit." On this point, Minister Stephenson explores the possibility of uniting these zones with those of the Dominican Republic in order to constitute a great pole of attractive ecotourism, linking the roads of water and rice.

She also said that the strategy to fight against insecurity was based on the construction of tourist centers and coastal cities, as well as the strengthening of existing structures such as the Tourist Police (PoliTour).
