And What unexploited economic opportunities exist in Haiti
QUESTION 1: What unexploited economic opportunities exist in Haiti but what needs to be done if these opportunities are to be exploited?
Haiti is, on the western hemisphere, the country the most densely populated with 289 inhabitants/ km≤, and also a GDP per person of 510 $, that is 1,4$ per a day. However, this country has many resources unexploited, or badly exploited, and this in different areas of economics activities, like agriculture, tourism, textile industry and many others.

Today Haiti is on a crucial turning point of his history. On his rebuilding, the country hasnít to neglect his different opportunities that we have seen (and many others as to become a competitive country in textile industry) if Haiti want to change his future.
QUESTION 2†: The Haiti earthquake is one of the worst natural disasters and the media coverage has been very extensive. What has been your reaction to this event and do you think that we have done our best to help the Haitians?
The Haiti earthquake on 12th January 2010 has made more than 222†000 deaths.
