I Have Come To The Decision To Spend Most, If Not The Entire, Coming Year Abroad Promoting Haiti

A Letter From President Michel Martelly
My fellow Haitians,
For more than a year, it's been an honor and a privilege to serve as your president. And during this time, as you know, I made frequent international trips to increase our nation's profile and attract foreign investment. There is no greater pleasure in the world than representing our country overseas and luring new business. So, my fellow citizens, I am thrilled to take this opportunity to share with you my new plan to draw foreign direct investment into our country.
After giving it a lot of thought, I have come to the decision to spend most, if not the entire, coming year abroad promoting Haiti.
Let's face it. Haiti cannot do it alone. Foreign investment is vitally important to our future prosperity. In order to urgently bring substantial investment flows to our homeland, I intend to spend nearly every single day in 2013 overseas to encourage international investors to come to our country. In fact, I will barely set foot in Haiti next year.
