Caracol Industrial Park shows also the manifestation of continuity as sought in the actions of the Haitian State, as shown the presence among us of my predecessor, the President René Préval whose I praises the vision and leadership that led to the realization of this Industrial Park [brace between the two President].

On behalf of the Haitian people and my own behalf, I thank the Government of the United States of America which, through USAID provided considerable support, I emphasize the personal efforts of Secretary of State Clinton and her entire team past and present for the realization of Caracol Industrial Park, I also thank the Inter-American Development Bank for his support to this economic boost, how beneficial for the region of Great North [...] I would also like to send a special thank to the Korean company Sae-A for the confidence they placed in the future of Haiti [...] I also feel a huge satisfaction that the Haitian firm Peinture Caraïbes is installed at Caracol Industrial Park, this is a good signal, I am also happy that a Dominican company of garment manufacturing has just signed a contract to install in the Caracol Industrial Park, the company plans to create 5,000 jobs in two years [...] In the same vein I extend my most sincere thanks to all those, Haitians and foreigners who have contributed to this first decisive step of the manifest opening of the economic development in Haiti. I also welcome the potential investors who have made ​​the trip to Caracol today and finally, I emphasize the continues dynamism and commitment of President Clinton [...] that continues to devote himself to the cause of the Haitian people. [...] I would like to send a special message for investors who have come here to see by themselves the many opportunities that the largest industrial park in the Caribbean has to offer. On behalf of the people of Haiti thank you for coming, and I hope that this will be the first of many productive visits.

[...] Caracol is not only what we see today is a project that responds to the point 'E' Employment in the government program, [...] to put the country on the track of development, I will deploy all possible efforts for Caracol succeed.

Caracol will succeed, because I want to have other achievements like this across the country, for the country's children can find work [...] Give work to everyone in the country, this is my dream, this is why I will support all projects like Caracol that can allow Haitians to find ways to take care of themselves, take care of their families.

[...] The Caracol Industrial Park represents a concerted effort at several national and international level, bilateral and multilateral, it is primarily the result of over two years of fruitful consultations with local authorities, a process of decentralization both political and economic in full swing.

I stress that the Caracol Industrial Park, is a model of integrated development, by treating its wastewater and waste, the park contributes to the renewal of the environment. In addition to jobs, it offers to the surrounding communities, the ability to provide services to companies that locate here. Moreover, the presence of the University of Limonade in the vicinity of Caracol Industrial Park promises to provide it of executives well equipped to contribute to the economic growth of the region.

[...] However, the work is not yet finished because the Caracol Industrial Park remains an active project, the success we had together to date, is only a first step. We are aware of the necessity, that ultimately, we will have to provide the zone with the additional infrastructure necessary to exploit its full potential.

Among this infrastructure, we quote the urgency of build a seaport, to increase the offer and quality of housing, building educational institutions, as well as implement commercial spaces.

[...] From this experience, we drawn of lessons edifying, that we will try to apply, to implement other parks in other parts of the country.

Caracol Industrial Park marks the transition toward the investment, it also indicates that the Haitian government acquires more know-how to better manage its space, to coordinate the support of its international partners. We urge our partners USAID, IDB and many other to continue to accompany us. Time is no longer the assistantship, but to sustainable investment.

I reiterate, ladies and gentlemen Haiti is open to irreversibly to Business 'Haiti is open for business', and this is no longer a slogan it is a thoughtful policy that the Government Martelly-Lamothe will continue constantly and we invite you all to contribute [...] we invite you all to seize the moment to invest in Haiti, its people, young and dynamic awaits you [...]"
