Carnival of Flowers to Create Jobs

Carnival of Flowers to Create Jobs

Government of Haiti (GOH) is hosting the 2013 Carnival of Flowers (COF) in Port-au-Prince and other locales for three days.

Naysayers complain COF will not make a profit because vendors cheat the tax collector and out-of-state performers spend their money elsewhere.

GOH contends COF will create jobs and lift hopes of Haitians dashed by 2010's earthquake. GOH will subsidize COF at $1.6 million USD. Ministry of Culture says COF is an opportunity to display floral species that are part of Les Cayes Botanical Garden.
