Hillary Clinton in visit in Haiti
Here is a picture of the United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a visit in Haiti in a factory to observe the implementation of several development projects. These projects in the manufacturing industry in Haiti were made possible thanks to the new Haitian Hemispheric Opportunity through Partnership Encouragement Act or the Hope Act.
On 16 December 2006, U.S. Congress voted the "HOPE" Act in an effort to provide economic opportunities to the people of Haiti
One major thing is that the Hope Act opens the doors for Haiti to get free commercial access to the US market without any import tariffs or duties. They are mainly textile products.
As part of HOPE, the Haitian government gave up the rights to control products imported into the country« Previous · Next »
