First Haitian Industrial Shoemaking Factory

On Thursday, December 17, 2015, Haitian President Michel Martelly, participated in the official opening of the first Haitian Industrial Shoemaking Factory at the Boulevard Toussaint Louverture (Airport Road). This high technology shoe factory is a creation from the initiative of JL Fine Shoes S.A. to contribute and revitalize Haitian economy through domestic production by feeding local consumption. As a token for encouragement, President Martelly has offered SurTab tablet to each employee of the company which would be given to them after successful completion of required training to join the factory. The factory would create immediate employment of 150 personnel, and within the next 2 years it expects to offer 1,200 permanent jobs.
