New Temporary parliament building in Haiti

Did you know? The Haitian Parliament building (Palais Legislatif) was completely destroyed in the January 2010 earthquake... Yesterday, Aug 20 2011, a new prefabricated structure was installed to house all the Haitian lawmakers elected in November elections.

Do you live in Haiti? Send me a picture!

The cost to build it?

$700,000 U.S.!!!

"The structure will allow the 129 newly elected deputies to gather indoors until the construction of more permanent facilities," AFP reports


If it cost $700,000 to build just one a temporary structure in Haiti, how much do you think it will cost JUST to rebuild permanent earthquake-resistant government buildings?

My suggestion....

Move the Haitian capital to Hinche!

We are in the heart of Haiti, we are earthquake-proof, we are hurricane-proof, AND we are flood proof!

Next time, think about choosing another place in Haiti to invest and you will make your dream come true. If it were in another area in Haiti instead of your hometown, people would be happy to see you achieve your economic dreams by investing in your country.

I know that you love your family and you may not want to live far from them but this is a wise advice because Jesus states this: "No Messiah or Prophet can be honored in his own land or hometown...Nul prophete n'est honore dans sa propre patrie." You must take some risks some time by exploring a new city or department a little bit far from your hometown if you want to achieve any economic dreams.

Well as long the building can be use for something once a permanent property has been build..

Unfortunatly it is the cost for buildings properties and health and safety for employees are priorities.

Having the capital move somewhere else is not a bad idea but once again it is up to the gorverment to determine if such move is beneficial for the

It is what it is! Unfortunately, we think in terms of personal housing and needs.

The government has to think beyond individuals.

They need space for offices, staff, visitors (local AND foreign).
