Here is a picture of La Gonave.
The former President Michel Martelly had made a plan with an unknown institution to transform the La Gonâve Island into an International Financial Center with three official languages: English, French and Creole. As per the plan, an area of 100 square kilometers within the 743 square kilometer Island of Gonâve will be transformed into a sustainable green island community consisting the following projects. (a) renewable energy project, Jatropha farm and biodiesel plant that would employ over 18,000 Haitians; (b) luxury estate housing; (c) waterfront villages; (d) international and private airports; (e) industrial city with deep sea port; (f) all inclusive destination resorts with spas, golf courses and casinos; and (g) home port for large cruise ships. The agreement withholding the description of financial institution was made public by an Executive order issued by the Martelly government on January 7, 2016. The private entity will be empowered to build necessary infrastructure as per the requirement of the project and collect revenue to cover their investment. The plan was originally conceptualized in September 2010. It was a surprising fact that a public disclosure of such status was unknown outside of the principles involved.
Here is a picture of Mr. Grey Pierson he was he was visiting Tortuga Island in 1972.
In 1968, François "Papa Doc" Duvalier needed a radio ship that could transmit his propaganda across the Caribbean and to Latin America. It was then he came into the contact of Don Pierson, a Cadillac dealer from Eastland who had two abandoned radio ships, but both were moored across the Atlantic off the coast of south-east England. Pierson struck a deal of $70 million for the ships and 'Papa Doc' though could not afford to pay the amount, leased Tortuga Island instead in 1972 on condition of equal sharing joint venture between the Haitian government and "Dupont Caribbean Inc". When in July, 2014, the Miami based Carnival Corporation announced its investment plan for US $ 700 million with the Haitian government for constructing a cruise port in the Tortuga island and transform that into a tourist Mecca, nobody was aware that one Texan named Pierson has inherited the absolute right on the island from his father on a 99 year lease contract, dated April 5, 1971. However, subsequent to that date, the Haitian government absolved itself from entire financial and all other responsibilities and granted 99 years exclusive leasehold right and full commercial authority to the Pierson 's corporation as then the Island of Tortuga was a barren place without any road, electricity or public utility services. Pierson's 'Dupont Caribbean Inc' immediately started investment and promotion activities to improve the image of Tortuga Island. As of the agreement "Dupont Caribbean Inc" was given all authority to issue licenses on trading at Tortuga and it has still remained effective.
