Chinese entrepreneurs and the opportunities offered by Haiti
Chinese entrepreneurs see great opportunities in Haiti.
The recent 9th China-Latin America and Caribbean (LAC-CHINA Business Summit) summit in Mexico was attended by over 1,500 Chinese entrepreneurs. This was the first institutionalized platform that China has established for promoting economic and trade cooperation with the Caribbean region and Latin American countries. As per the Haitian representatives visiting the summit on behalf of the Investment Facilitation Center (CFI), the experience of 'LAC-CHINA' seems to be promising. Over 10 potential Chinese entrepreneurs have expressed interest in the textile and footwear sector for investment and have agreed to visit Haiti's National Society of Industrial Parks (SONAPI). During his speech for the occasion, Guy Lamothe, ambassador of Haiti has said, since China is one of the key founders of BRICS, Haiti can receive financial support from the banks of BRICS.
