#Haiti2050

Our Vision is an Independent Haiti by the Year 2050

Haiti 2050 is our vision for the future of Haiti.

It is a movement built on the exact blueprint that created success among the “Asian Tigers,” one-time colonies like Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand that have emerged as dynamic colonies.

Built upon a foundation of 7 proven principles:

  1. Create sustainable economic development

  2. Rebuild our agricultural community

  3. Educate the future

  4. Strengthen and support the rule of law

  5. Engage international partners who share legitimate mutual interests with Haiti

  6. Promote a new hope and behavior that springs from a sustainable spiritual rebirth

  7. Guarantee transparency from government activities and commercial entities
