Facilitating Private Sector Investment in Haiti

Together with the Haitian government, investors, and partners, we're proving that Haiti is open for business.

President Clinton and the Clinton Foundation work alongside the Government of Haiti to foster economic development and job creation and to improve the country's business environment. The Clinton Foundation Haiti team has helped facilitate visits from more than 100 investors and donors to the country, ranging from hoteliers and energy company executives to donors supporting education and water initiatives. Many of these groups and individuals that visited Haiti with the Foundation have since chosen to invest or explore further investment opportunities or to contribute financial or in-kind support.

In November 2011, the Clinton Foundation co-hosted the second Haiti Investors Conference with the Government of Haiti and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). More than 1,100 Haitian and international investors registered, with over 450 international attendees representing more than 30 countries.


In 2012, the Foundation was pleased to help facilitate the ground breaking of the new $45 million dollar Marriott/Digicel hotel in Haiti. Since 2011, the Foundation has been working closely with Marriott and Digicel to help the companies move forward with initiatives to ensure local procurement and a Clinton Global Initiative commitment that provides $1 million to analyze and improve the tourism sector in Haiti.
