News Americas, WASHINGTON, D.C., Fri. Sept. 13, 2013: The Organization of American States is set to facilitate a major conference for the government of Haiti to present its Investment Master Plan to key international investors and stakeholders from the international community early next year.
According to an OAS statement, the meeting is earmarked to take place on January 16, 2013 at the OAS Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The Haitian government’s presentation is expected to focus on investment options in tourism, textile manufacturing, infrastructure, and other areas.
The disclosure came this week following a visit to Haiti by OAS Assistant Secretary General Albert Ramdin who was there for meetings with President Michel Martelly, Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, President of the Electoral College (CTCEP) Emmanuel Ménard, the Presidential Advisory Council for Economic Growth and Investment, inter-American agencies in Haiti, MINUSTAH Head and Special Representative of the United Nations in Haiti Sandra Honore among others.
Before leaving Haiti, Ramdin visited the Isaie Jeanty Maternité Hospital in Cité Soleil, where he fulfilled a promise to financially support the upgrade and refurbishment of a critically needed operating theatre at the hospital. The funds presented to hospital officials were raised during the “Spirits of the Americas” event hosted by the Assistant Secretary General earlier this year.
