IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is working with the Haitian government to create a national framework for Integrated Economic Zones. The new zones will provide desperately needed jobs to tens of thousands of Haitians in various industry sectors over the next five years. An example of how such industries can help is seen here at Codevi, a garment manufacturing factory in Haiti's northeast which is giving hope and salaries to more than 6,500 people and their families.

Nesmy Manigat, Minister of education and vocational training of Haiti, was recently appointed chair of the GPE Board Committee on governance, ethics, risk and finance (GERF). In this role, he will lead the committee’s efforts to mobilize additional resources to finance education in partner countries, among other activities.
In 2009, Haiti’s national telecom company – Teleco – was rapidly losing market share and nearly $1.5 million a month in public funds. IFC helped the Government of Haiti and Viettel form a partnership that has turned around the fortunes of the company. Today, the new company – Natcom Haiti – has gone from 75,000 customers to 1.8 million and is turning a profit for both Viettel and the government.

The Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF) is a partnership between the international community and the Government of Haiti to help finance post-earthquake reconstruction. The fund's Program Manager Josef Leitmann speaks about challenges still facing Haiti, two years after the massive earthquake.
"I think it is now that we need IDA more than ever, because we are in the reconstruction phase of our country after the earthquake. So we need a lot more resources to support the education sector, the infrastructure sector, and the sector of economic governance. And that is going to mean needing even greater funding." - Ronald Baudin, Minister of Economy and Finance, Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) - The Finance Commission of the Senate and the monetary authorities are discussing ways to implement to resolve the crisis of the dollar in Haiti. Senators call for respect of the law limiting to 10 000 dollars the amount of deposits and withdrawals.

Steven Werlin of Fonkoze, the largest micro-finance institution in Haiti, describes why working with the government is very important for organizations operating in the country. This importance is created by the long history of development initiatives failing to work in Haiti, Werlin says, because people complain that the government is weak and then doom projects by refusing to work with them. However Haiti's new government is taking extreme poverty seriously, he says, embodied by a presidential task force established to work on the problem. This is important for NGOs like Fonkoze because individually they cannot solve extreme poverty across the country, but government can coordinate efforts in different geographic regions to make programs run more efficiently for a larger effect.
