Haiti to conduct survey of all nationals in the Diaspora

PORT AU RINCE, Haiti, CMC – Haiti has signed an agreement that will allow the Haiti Renewal Alliance” (HRA) to conduct an inventory of all Haitians in the Diaspora worldwide.

The agreement was signed by Marnatha Irene Ternier, the Minister of Haitians Living Abroad (MHAVE) and HRA president Firmin Baker in the presence of Guissepe Lopette, the head of mission of the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Necessary to list all Haitians overseas

“This Memorandum of Understanding comes to materialize an idea of President Jovenel Moïse, who believes it necessary to list all the sons and daughters of the country living in foreign lands, in order to have information on their host country, their areas of expertise or profession and their willingness to return to Haiti or to help the country in well-defined circumstances,” said Ternier.

She said the information will allow to build a reliable database of resources that represent the members of the Haitian Diaspora

Enables country to benefit from Diaspora

“This initiative is of paramount importance to all our Diaspora compatriots who want to reintegrate into the social, economic, cultural and professional life of the country. It is also an opportunity for the government to benefit from the expertise and availability of its sons and daughters living outside the country,” she said, adding that she was urging all members of the Diaspora to participate in the initiative.

    Haitian authorities need to improve the safety of people who live in Haiti firts. Too many gangs and killings now nobody should not send their kids to participate in anything this country

    • Thank you….

      I am a little curious to know who’s idea was it?

      Cause next thing you know the list falls in the wrong hands and these people families are targeted for kidnapping, Extortions… I hope Donald Trump order immigration to not release this information.

      Haiti poko pare pou bagay sa…

    I fully want to participate in the survey. However, what criteria are going to be considered – generations wise – is it going to be from 1918 to prersent? When did you live HAITI? Your first port of entry and where you finally took residence? Were you naturalized? Are you going to consider Haitians families as born only from Haitian mother and Haitian father? Great idea, since it’s so shameful that no governmental record was kept!
    * For me, as a naturalized-Haitian-diaspora, my most important subject is to LEGALIZE the DOUBLE-NATIONALITY, allowing the Diaspora to FULLY participate in the ‘res publica’.

      I want to know the real reason they want to account for all the Haitians living in the Diaspora. I don’t believe it’s necessarily for good intent. I also don’t think there will ever be an accurate number.
