Investment Climate

Continuing to improve the business and investment climate is one of Haiti’s premier objectives. The success so far is clearly represented by the dramatic increase in FDI in the past four years as well as the major firms that are choosing to invest in Haiti. Heineken, Marriott and Digicel are just a selection of the firms that see the opportunity that Haiti represents.

The Centre for the Facilitation of Investments (CFI) provides support to investors throughout the investment process: from initial interest to any concerns arising after the project is established. Significant support from the Inter-American Development Bank, Caribbean Export and the European Union is bringing the CFI rapidly up to best practices in all areas of its work. Similarly, the Doing Business Unit within the Prime Minister’s Office is focusing on continuing to improve Haiti’s World Bank Doing Business rankings, as is the Presidential Commission for the Reform of Business Law.
