Haiti - Economy : Laurent Lamothe, speaks about business with the Haitian private sector
Last Wednesday, at the hotel "Ritz Kinam 2," as part of an evening organized by the Haitian-French Chamber Commerce and Industry. (CFHCI), Laurent Lamothe, the Minister of Foreign Affairs outlined the foreign policy of Haiti to the private business sector.

In his speech the Minister Lamtohe explained to the private sector "...the success of this government will be a victory not only for our people, who live in conditions of extreme poverty, but also a great victory for the Haitian private sector. Indeed, this is a unique moment, a historic opportunity, to have a government that is both close to the people and the private sector. Working together to fulfill our responsibilities of investment, us, the Government in creating a framework conducive to investment and create jobs by investing in this country that needs it so much.

So we must together face this challenge and develop a strong solidarity for stimulating investment and domestic production. We will implement a rigorous and pragmatic management to allow Haitian companies to create jobs and work.

The business diplomacy and of investment is at work to promote sustainable development through the Haitian economy, which is today one of the most open in the Western Hemisphere with a liberal trade regime and a code investment now open to massive investment. The business diplomacy and of development, now plans to reduce trade deficits which have worsened with the steady increase in imports, by accelerating the pace of export growth through new international investments that we are looking and partnerships with the Haitian private sector [...]"

Gregory Brandt, President of CFHCIdeclared "...the moment is to innovation that underlies a dynamic business diplomacy foolproof. In addition to supporting the diplomacy and to relay it, we, the Franco-Haitian Chamber, would like that it work elbow to elbow with the defense of the national interest [...] today, the supreme interest of the Haitian Nation is to enter in the modernity, by way of growth, wealth creation and employment, to reduce the extreme poverty experienced by the majority of its son and daughters [...] our regulatory state must strengthen and make every effort to create a climate favorable to foreign direct investment, to attract them in Haiti.

We must also keep in mind that our regional partners today, may also be our competitors of tomorrow, this is why the national interest must be at the heart of our diplomacy. Think global and act global. Today, the national interest commands us a business diplomacy which is based on research of direct foreign investment, it that it is necessary to direct, focus and anchor in the form of public-private partnerships

Our resources are scarce and the windows of opportunities are becoming closer, it is therefore urgent, the current situation imposes it on us we have a GDP of 750 dollars, [...] an economic growthhat does not support our population, [...] an internal immigration two-fold higher than the average, an external migration four times greater than the region [...] it's not a secret that our country now imports 65% of its consumption needs..."
