Clinton Foundation in Haiti
Caracol Industrial Park
In collaboration with the government of Haiti, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the U.S. State Department, the Clinton Foundation assisted with the development of the Caracol Industrial Park, which will ultimately create up 60,000 jobs and decentralize the Haitian economy. In October 2012, President Bill Clinton joined Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, President Martelly, Prime Minister Lamothe, and President Moreno of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) for the opening of Caracol Northern Industrial Park.
The Korean apparel manufacturer Sae-A is the anchor tenant and will create 20,000 jobs alone, and is already employing more 1,000 people – most of whom are women. Origin Holdings, a large U.S. furniture company, and Sherwin Williams, and U.S. paint company, will be the second and third tenants in the park.
