Haiti Open For Business, Laurent Lamothe Explains

You may thing that the 'Haiti Is Open For Business' motto adopted by the Martelly Administration is a joke but wait til you hear what Laurent Lamothe, Foreign Minister of Haiti, had to say about it.


Laurent Lamothe

'Haiti is Open for Business' is a strategy that aims to change the diplomacy, from a traditional diplomacy to a business diplomacy...

Business why?

To establish ways and means and try to present Haiti as an emerging country...

[hmmm... I like the sounds of that...]

We want that, in the coming years, Haiti will become a country where people see us not as a humanitarian work, but as a country where they can come invest and at the same time create jobs.

Haiti Foreign Minister Laurent Lamothe also talks about ways to turn the 42 consulates and embassies Haiti has abroad from diplomatic entities to business magnets, attracting foreign investors to come invest in Haiti. Read more at HaitiLibre.com

Way to go... Mesye Lamothe!

Business Missions... I like that!

The US embassy in Port-au-Prince Haiti is very involved in the daily politics of the country... What do Haitian consulates and embassies do besides issuing passports? Huh?

I am not kidding, I honestly don't know...

The last time I saw a Haitian Ambassador on TV, there was a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti... Oh yeah... And then he ran for PRESIDENT... LOL...

It would be nice if, after their term is over, they could tell the Haitian people how they've actually made Haiti BETTER..

What do you think about that?

Don't you all get it the us gas every say to whom runs Haitian and how. Whoever is president of Haiti is a puppet.

No matter the plans or how Haiti is helped there are a lot of folks very angry with for being the first free black republic.

And any chance they get to punish Haiti and Haitians they

Mwen dako avek ou.Se enstitisyon yo pou leta ranfose.Fok gen sevis sekre pou kapab prevni krim. En plis kelke swa peyi o mond, pap janm pa gen krim.Men ki sa ki rive apre yon krim finn fet?Se la lajistis enpotan nan yon peyi. Sistem jistis la an Ayiti pa egziste.

Koripsyon se nimero 1 nan sistem nan.Se sak fe gen chire pit ant egzekitif la ak paleman sou afe Belizaire a, sistem jistis la pa

Nou salye efort Minis Laurent Lamothe ap fe pou ta bay peyi a yon lot visaj sou plan diplomatik.Nou konprann determinasyon li poul fe peyi"OPEN FOR BUSINESS" nan vann imaj peyi a atraver mond lan.Nou panse efort sa yo pa sifi e nou ka di se yon pedi tan, bagay ki pi enpotan an se pou yo komanse rezoud pwoblem andedan peyi a, tankou :rezoud pwoblem limye, dlo, wout, an plis pwoblem ensekirite ak koripsyon.OPEN FOR BUSINESS se pa Laurent Lamothe ka pral fe envestise a vinn envesti nan peyi a. HAITI klase an 187 plas sou endis yo, tankou:edikasyon, sante,revni pandan ke vwazen nou DOMINIKEN klase an 60 plas an mwens ke HAITI.Envestiser-a pa pral pran sa Laurent Lamothe ap vann yo.Avan envestiser vini nan peyi a lap an nik GOOGLE Haiti endis sou enfrastrikti ou Haiti endis sou edikasyon ak sante ak revni envestiser-a ap jwenn tout detay yo.Mwne panse se nou pou ranforse enstitisyon nou yo. HAITI OPEN FOR BUSINESS se yon slogan se pa yon reyalite.
