Sanitation Plus Security Will Equal Investment

Ronald Altieri - October 19 2011, 7:14 AM

Sir, Whatever the approach will be in order to get investors to look at Haiti as a potential viable and sustainable market needs to be done in conjunction with a serious sanitation and security agenda.

Everybody already knows that without a decent appearance of our environment and a respectable security initiative, noone is going to flood the Haitian economy with their dollars.

May be not totally true, but partially true for the most part.
We are not concerned about our President and his entourage, but we suggest that those of the old ways start cleaning their minds by which result they will be able to see this truth clearly.

We know our President but not our Prime Minister, and we hope that our Prime Minister's primary outlook will be looked through security and sanitation.

For, dollars in our economy without security and sanitation will only be temporary help to Haiti's breath, but not long term for Haiti's spirit.

Simply put, SANITATION with SECURITY must be the two legs that INVESTMENT to bring JOBS must stand on pou peyi'a ka mache.

Clearly our airport is the first impression of our culture for the international traveler who wants to spend a few days in country's beaches.

I do not believe that i need to say much more there.

Unless we want the investment to be in insecurity and poverty, in which case the status quo will not be affected by any thoughts of change.

But if want change and for people to visit our nation with their children from Europe, America (north and south), Asia, Africa and other Caribbean islands then it is of paramount importance that we place SECURITY and SANITATION as priorities.
