PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Calling on the Diaspora to also do their part, Haitian tourism officials are advising their fellow countrymen and women living abroad to bring at least 5 companions along on every visit to Haiti.
"Reviving our struggling tourism industry remains a Herculean task. We can't do it all alone," said Tourism Minister Stephanie Villedrouin. "That's why we're urging all Haitians visiting their homeland to come with at least 5 tourists. It could be 5 friends or 5 co-workers. Or both. It's really up to you."
According to Villedrouin, the new campaign is designed to breathe new life into the sagging tourism sector and introduce non-Haitians to the Caribbean nation.
"With your help, visitors will discover Haiti's rich history and breathtaking natural beauty," said Villedrouin. "While you can bring as many guests as you'd like, we'd strongly recommend 5 as a bare minimum."
