Opinion | In Haiti’s political system, the ​diaspora is under-utilized​

Research has found that the Haitian diaspora’s involvement in Haiti boosts economic growth and social development. Further, they find that the diaspora have the necessary skills and resources to invest in building physical capital and productivity, ultimately helping to increase job creation, living standards, and higher growth. However, Haitians in the diaspora must stay away from that desire to run for office and receive presidential appointments. They must also refrain from asking the United States to impose a transitional diaspora-led government in Haiti.
