Haiti - Tourism : Stéphanie Villedrouin wants a Caribbean airline
On the sidelines of the 24th Intersessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Stéphanie Balmir Villedrouin, who is attending the meeting, recalled that during his opening speech the President Martelly insisted particularly on the importance of tourism as an engine of economic growth in Haiti "The tourism industry, booming in the region, can also be developed in my country. In this way, we can also conduct an exchange of experience, because it is one of the key sectors in which my Government intends to rely to achieve its objectives of economic growth and of creation of decent jobs [...] the lack of a dedicated transport system constitutes the heart of this problem [movement of people and goods]. In fact, for some of our fellow citizens traveling within the Community is the odyssey, " he had declared.

For the Minister Villedrouin a Caribbean airline is a necessity "because every time you go in the Caribbean, we are obliged to pass through the Panama or Miami, so it is important to see how we can have a Caribbean airline, that will allow us to exchange [quickly] of tourists [...] this means that when tourists come to the Caribbean, they will not stay only in Haiti or Jamaica, but they will be able to visit for example Jamaica, Haiti an then the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean countries.

It is this work that we will put into perspective, while the President of the Republic of Haiti holds the rotating presidency of the Caricom for 6 months. We'll see how we can move forward on this aspect, but also we'll see how we can obtain a tax on these tourists, who will make several trips in the Caribbean, in the context of multi-destinations. It is this work that we will do.

I must point out that this is something that started since last year, at the Ministry of Tourism with the Dominican Minister to create a multi-destinations between the two countries https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-6962-haiti-tourism-the-dominican-republic-makes-the-promotion-of-tourism-in-haiti.html and this is something that will continue and develop [...]"
