Strategic Development Plan of Mole Saint-Nicolas

On the site where, in 1492, Christopher Columbus landed, a new frontier of strategic development will take place in a plan mapped out by the IBI-DAA group for the Nord-Ouest department's Môle-Saint-Nicolas.


The town, home to just over 4,000 people will benefit from the plan, set out earlier in November by the group's Vice-President, Rene Hubert, to Mr. Wilson Laleau, Minister of Economy and Finance, as well as deputies, senior officials and senators. Technological progress has been steadily trickling into the area, with them having received cellular phone capability six years ago when Digicel erected a network tower in the area. Môle-Saint-Nicolas is also one of the only places in the country where the roads are fit for sturdy vehicles.

Now, being added to the town's list of advantages in four steps, will be the creation of a maritime corridor, a strong historical component that ties in with advanced plans for tourism--including the development of cruise ship ports and the possibility of inland excursions and water sports--, the use of the area's natural resources as well as the production of alternative forms of energy. The town is right on the coast of Haiti's North shore, and its coast sees a depth favorable to the development of a port for potential international transit and other commercial endeavors.

Already, there is a port for the distribution of charcoal, one of two main industries for Môle-Saint-Nicolas resident's, however, since the production of charcoal destroys forest land, new strategies like the new development plan, should come as welcome news to those who live and work there.
