Good News: More Jobs May Come to Haiti

1 6 3 1 - February 12 2008, 7:12 AM

The Confederation of Haitian Workers (CTH) has declared its support for the HOPE II initiative, which they believe will bring trade union jobs to Haiti.

CTH General Secretary Paul Loulou Chery, who sits on a labour-government panel organising the programme, says that Haiti is in desperate need of jobs and stability.

The HOPE act would provide tariff-free access to the United States market for apparel made in Haiti and would likely energise companies to set up shop in Haiti, meaning more jobs for Haiti's desperate economy.
