Building Stronger Communities together in Rural Areas

Expectations to meet by enterpreneurships’ youth 

In addition, the useful goal is to start-up new small and medium -sized businesses (SMB) and micro-enterprises that will aimed the entrepreneur’s youth projects in the four (4) priorities tourists regions and the capital of Port-au-Prince (Western) mentioned into the Master Plan of Tourism (MPT) 2008, the national document tourist development of Haiti in 1996 and its revision in 2008, evolving, which have been declared to public at a news conference in Jacmel City by Ministry Haitian of Tourism (MHT) dated back of January 28, 2008. The MPT 2008 highlighted 41 projects for a funding envelope of $450-million (U.S) dollars. The MPT 2008 will allow the Ministry Haitian of Tourism to actively seek financing of investment for projects in the private business sector in Haiti and foreign direct investments funds (FDI) from foreign entrepreneurs worldwide.

The above-mentionned outcomes were not all achieved. Only a few projects have been implemented under the revised MPT 2008. « Et ce, du fait que les promesses de financement formulées par des bailleurs de fonds internationaux n’ont pas été pour la plupart honorées. Un ensemble de projets ont été cependant concrétisées au bénéfice du secteur : la réfection de la route Cap-Haïtien/Ouanaminthe (2007), la construction du nouveau Quai de Labadie (2009), l’aménagement de la plage de Port-salut (2009), la construction de l’aérogare de Jacmel (2009), etc.1(Ndlr. Translation follows: And, the fact that the pledges made ​​by international donors were not for the most honored. A series of projects have been materialized, however the benefit of the sector: the rehabilitation of the road Cap-Haïtien/Ouanaminthe (2007), the construction of the new Quai de Labadie (2009), the development of the beach of Port-Salut (2009), the construction of the airport in Jacmel (2009), etc.)

These potential destinations tourists regions are: the capital of Port-au-Prince and the Côte-des-Arcadins Beachfront (Western), the North Economic region including Northeastern, North, Northwestern departments; Southern and South. However, we are taken into account with the interdepartmental transportation projects such roads and bridge constructions, which are being built in these regions.  For instance, the road projects are the portion of Port-au-Prince/Hinche, Les Cayes/Jérémie, Port-Salut/ Port-à-Piment, Miragoâne/Petit Trou de Nippes (TBA), and many infrastructure-planning projects in the future.  For this reason, we have also thought to include in the MPT 2008 these regions into the priority tourism regions list: the Plateau Central, Grande-Anse, Les Nippes and also rural zones through sustainable farming community tourism activities in the Artibonite and fishing farming in the lakes that are built by fishermen.
