Haiti to revive with South Korean textile skills

As per Jude Hervey Day, Staff Chief at the Haitian Prime Minister's office, who visited Seoul last week, Haiti is making attempts to reconstruct itself, from the debris of the earthquake that, resulted into 230,000 lives five months ago, by keeping the South Korea's textile industry as a framework for generating jobs in the country.

Day informs that, they are trying to learn from South Korea's experience of recovering itself from a growing nation, to an advanced nation, over the past decades. And since, the South Korean textile industry's technical skills are considered amongst the best in the world, Haitian government is looking forward to adopting the same.

During his visit to Seoul last week, Day attended a high-end forum on partnership between South Korean and Latin American-Caribbean nations. Plans and co-operations required for reconstructing Haiti were also discussed with a group of South Korean non-governmental associations, such as World Vision and COPION (Co-operation and Participation in Overseas NGOs).

One of the important tasks for Haiti is to generate jobs, as the earthquake has crippled almost 70 percent of Haiti's industrial base. Currently, South Korea and Haiti are jointly working towards reconstructing Haiti's energy stations.

Now, since the country has passed the stage of procuring immediate relief, Haiti was slowly formulating a plan to reconstruct the country with a complete new imagery.

Day said that, they expect South Korean government to assist in the reconstruction of the country's infrastructure such as ports, airports, roads and railroads. Also, right now the best option for generating jobs in Haiti was by making use of South Korean textile industry's skills as that, is a more practical approach towards rebuilding industrial base.

Day believes that Haiti as a country possesses high capacity to rebuild itself on the lines of South Korea, which revived itself from its ruins 50 years ago to turn into the world's 13th-biggest economy. Haitian people are aiming to become a nation that gives than the ones that just takes.
