Wharf Jérémie, in the Commune of Cité Soleil

On Thursday, January 28, 2016, Michel Martelly, the President of the Republic, inaugurated the socio-community infrastructures, a project of Wharf Jérémie, in the commune of Cité Soleil. The President was accompanied by Yves Germain Joseph, the Minister of Planning and External Cooperation, Mr. Jacques Rousseau, the Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications, and Mr. Wilson Laleau, the Minister of Economy and Finance. During his speech for the occasion, the President said, he believes the new complex of Wharf Jérémie with its modern amenities, would play an important role in the economic and social development of Haiti. It would further offer facilities for a leisure space, trade, place for technical and vocational training and sports practice to the inhabitants of Wharf.


The socio-community infrastructure is a US$23.9 million project built over a land of 7 hectares. The modern complex would house a center of technical and vocational training with 16 classrooms, 4 workshop blocks, a basketball court, an auditorium with a capacity of 600 seats, public plaza, beach resort, a market place with room for 1,300 merchants, a sub-police station with police dormitory, housing of the National Port Authority (APN) and the Maritime and Navigation Service of Haiti (SEMANAH), car parks, tanks and sanitary blocks. It would work as a commercial port serving the inter-regional and coastal areas of the Caribbean.
