The event is focused on bolstering tourism in the Haitian nation and especially at the regional level. With the same aim of attracting more tourists the nation of Haiti hosted the second-ever Carnival of Flowers last month. The event was held at Port-au-Prince. These events are helping Haiti to expose its dynamic tourist attraction sites.

Ms. Dieudonne Luma Etienne in his opening speech on Wednesday said the event exposes business opportunities for entrepreneurs. She added that the ceremony is a tool to promote North Haiti for tourist attraction.

During the launch it was made clear that the most important tourist sites in Haiti are found mainly in Cap-Haitien.
