The Haitian delegation meeting in short

The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal’s Acclr international trade experts are pleased to invite you to a business meeting with a Haitian delegation on June 14. This event, organized in collaboration with the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie haïtiano-canadienne, will allow you to investigate real investment opportunities in this Caribbean country and to take advantage of business situations you, as a potential investor, can seize and build upon.

Why Haiti?

For several decades now, Québec and Haiti have enjoyed a special relationship. Over the years, we have developed cooperative bonds in such areas as culture, governance, tourism, and education.

With two international airports and some twenty daily direct flights from all around the world, as well as its many ports, Haiti is strategically positioned to do business. Through its liberalized economy, its new government seeking to restore growth in the country, and its efforts to develop legal and procedural infrastructures, Haiti is allowing companies and investors to better take advantage of its potential in various promising sectors of the economy.
