In partnership with the Digicel Group and the Clinton Global Initiative, February 2015 saw Marriott International open its first-ever property in Haiti: the 170 room, $145 million Marriott Port-au-Prince Hotel. This project demonstrates how hotel development can be a model for social innovation and community investment. Along with the opening came 200 new jobs for local Haitians, often from underserved communities. Marriott collaborated with Haiti’s Ministry of Tourism to select Haitian youth to train at the nearby JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo and return to Haiti after a 12-week internship to become entry-level supervisors. Marriott also worked with World Central Kitchen to build the skills and training of Haiti’s hospitality workforce through a newly designed hospitality curriculum...
"Haiti has practically become a trash can," says Ketcia Pierre-Louis, "where everything people in other countries don't need comes here." Pierre-Louis is a businesswoman and affiliate of the Croix-des-Bouquets Chamber of Commerce, just outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Like many critics of imported second-hand clothing, which is known locally as "pepe," she believes the practice undercuts domestic businesses and industries. Some have even called for the government to ban the practice. But Haiti's pepe trade is decidedly a business—not a charity. In fact, it starts with Haitian Americans buying goods at U.S. thrift stores and shipping products to Port-au-Prince and other ports. Pepe may include hand-me-downs, but the clothing is high-quality, stylish, and cheap. More important, average Ha...

http://www.worldbank.org/en/country/haiti - Sharline Dubuisson owns a small money transfer and cellphone business in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The earthquake destroyed her home, but now her business is growing. “There are many opportunities,” she says.
"Before all that, before the earthquake, you could come here and make enough money to eat, to go home and eat with your children and your wife. Well, that's over. The country is destroyed. I tell you, my business is destroyed too." Saint Hilaire Saint Louis Port-au-Prince - On a rickety-looking table set up on a sidewalk, dozens of bottles were sparkling in the sun: DSP Black Deluxe Whisky from India, Disaronno Amaretto from Italy, Andre Champagne from the United States. In the background was a crumpled building. Saint Hilaire Saint Louis, 30, was leaning over his stall in downtown Port-au-Prince, discussing the booze business in the wake of the earthquake. One Day in Port-au-Prince puts you in the shoes of ordinary Haitians with extraordinary stories of the earthquake and its aftermath...
Hello lovelies. So for those of you who may not know, I am Haitian and recently I was blessed to visit Haiti (specifically Port-au-Prince) for the first time. We took the trip for my grandpa's funeral, who recently passed this past month. In light of the difficult time, my experience in Haiti was absolutely surreal and I am so grateful for my grandpa, his legacy and the opportunity to have spent time exploring my heritage alongside the rest of my family. Rest Peacefully, Granpa ❤️ I hope you all enjoy this travel diary and look out for more of them in 2017, Lord willing!

It has been 30 years since the last visit of one of our ships to this Caribbean island. After the devastating earthquake in 2010, over 200.000 Haitians lost their lives and over 2 million people lost their homes. The effects can still be seen, so crew members made their way onshore to support the work of local organisations who have been present in the country throughout these past years.

One of Haiti's most well known exports and a symbol of national pride is back in business. Barbancourt's rum was first distilled in Port au Prince in the 1860's by Dupre Barbancourt, a French cognac maker. The company maintained production through Haiti's turmoil of the last century and a half, but January's earthquake was devastating. The factory sustained extensive damage. After several months of repairs, Haiti's prized rum is back in production. Jeff Swicord Reports.
