In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, the French-speaking Caribbean nation is keen to show the world that it is alive and that tourism has a major role to play in its recovery.
In this regard, Haiti, a member of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), exhibited at the global tourism trade show, ITB in Berlin, this week.
Its participation was facilitated by CTO, along with other partners, including ITB Berlin. During the March 10-14 event, described as the world’s leading travel trade show, Haiti has a booth in the CTO-organized Caribbean Village, manned by representatives of the country’s German embassy.
The city mayor, Klaus Wowereit, met H.E. Jean-Robert Saget, Ambassador of Haiti to Germany, at the Haiti stand in the Caribbean Village Wednesday morning.
In addition, Ambassador Saget is making a presentation at a workshop on Thursday, March 11 focusing on “Development Perspectives Through Sustainable Tourism Development for Haiti”.
