Chinese entrepreneurs show interest in investing in Haiti

The recently concluded 9th China-Latin America and Caribbean (LAC-CHINA) summit in Mexico attracted around 1,500 Chinese entrepreneurs, including those from the textile industry, as per Haitian media reports.

Haiti's National Society of Industrial Parks (SONAPI) got a nod of approval from at least 10 potential Chinese entrepreneurs to visit the park, textile and footwear being the key sectors for investment.

Expressing their views about the summit, Keren Marcellus and Marcus Boereau, representatives of the Investment Facilitation Center (CFI) said, “The experience of LAC-CHINA proved clearly promising for foreign direct investment in Haiti. The Chinese are very interested especially in building infrastructure, bio-agriculture, and textile manufacturing in Haiti.”

Guy Lamothe, ambassador of Haiti, said in his speech at the summit that Haiti could receive financial aid from the Bank of the BRICS (Brazils, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) nations since China is among the key founders. He stressed on improving the Haitian economy by focussing on investments in textile manufacturing, agriculture and tourism sectors of the country. (HO)
