CFI Director Karl Jean-Louis Seeks Investment Opportunities for Haiti

Karl Jean-Louis, Director of Investment Facilitation Center (CFI), recently opened an office in Cap-Haïtien. Jean-Louis wants to attract a group of multi-lingual, capable, and committed professionals to provide resources, research, and act on investment opportunities as they appear. He wants the CFI to be proactive, productive, and develop working relationships with the great north Chamber of Commerce.


The CFI's goal is to highlight local projects in the great north and east regions of Haiti, ripe for investment. To this end, CFI intends to nurture potential investors and steer them towards developing investment opportunities in local areas. The Cap-Haïtien Chamber of Commerce's role is to assist both CFI and potential investors to develop initiatives for investment opportunities and oversee them as they progress.

Jean-Louis spoke of CFI's plans to exert more control to attract private investment by establishing other offices throughout the country. CFI, he says, will assess the number of potential projects for investment, for each area, and guide investors to these opportunities. The CFI and Chamber of Commerce will then work with the investors to develop investment initiatives.

He noted Haiti's success at the U.S. Caravan of Investment Conference, where CFI scored Miami and Atlanta investors. CFI has deployed them to the northeast where they are monitoring developing investment opportunities. He also talked about the Industrial Park being built in north Haiti by a leading South Korean garment manufacturer, which will bring thousands of jobs, and make north Haiti a hub of export trading in the Caribbean
