Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to northern Haiti on October 22. This marks the Secretary’s first trip to the North of Haiti. She will highlight leveraging of diplomacy by the Department in support of innovative USAID development models, which focus on partnering with the Government of Haiti, international partners, the private sector and nongovernmental organizations to catalyze economic development.

The Secretary will deliver remarks on “A New Day in Haiti” at the formal opening of Caracol Industrial Park, showcasing the region’s achievements in agri-business, energy, light manufacturing, tourism, and artisan crafts. She will also visit a nearby housing site that is under construction, as well as a recently-completed power plant that will supply electricity to the industrial park and nearby areas. While in Haiti, the Secretary will meet with President Michel Martelly, Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, local and national elected officials, investors, and community members.
