Port au Prince.- The new Haitian tourism minister Jessy Menos said that branch is the second priority (after agriculture) for developing the nation.
“Haiti is the poorest country in the Caribbean. Now we have to change it to the richest. Because Haiti is not poor – we’ve had bad management. We have things that are the envy of our neighbors”, she added.
According to Menos, in the 1950s and 1960s it was Port-au-Prince’s intoxicating mix of music, gingerbread architecture, and colourful art that drew the masses, including Hollywood greats. “Those things are all still here, though many of the capital’s many great historic mansions – all intricate fretwork and turrets – remain earthquake-bruised”, the minister added.
