2nd ‘Buy Haitian, Restore Haiti Conference’ January 26 in Port-au-Prince

Posted by Admin under: Entrepreneurship; Events; Haiti .

Dear friends of Haiti,

In March of 2011, over 250 Haitian Business Owners and Members of International Non-Profit Organizations came together at the first ‘Buy Haitian, Restore Haiti Conference’, to address the need for local purchasing in an economy dependent on aid. Since last year’s conference, the results of local purchasing by International organizations have been tremendous!

The Haitian economy is projected to grow by 8% in 2012 (Economic Commission Latin America & Caribbean). As Haitians offer high-quality, locally produced goods and services, local purchasing is essential to the long-term restoration of the country. To ensure stability, economic growth, and the creation of 100,000 new jobs by 2020, Partners Worldwide is equipping Haitian businesses and international non-profit organizations to collaborate across sectors. For this reason, we invite you to attend the second ‘BUY HAITIAN, RESTORE HAITI’ Conference at Karibe Convention Center, January 26, 2012.

Speakers and Attendees include organizations and businesses— buyers and suppliers. This conference is a win-win for all attendees!

REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, JANUARY 20th. Please call me with any questions or forward the information below to NGOs you know working in Haiti, and encourage them to register at http://www.partnersworldwide.org/events/upcoming-events/ or by e-mail at [email protected]. Please fill out and return attached profile by JANUARY 20th!!

Leadership Quotes

"Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged."
(Thomas A. Edison—thanks to Regan Caton)

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” (G.B. Shaw)

"There is the true joy of life: to be used by a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; to be thoroughly worn out before being thrown on the scrap heap; to be a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that life will not devote itself to making you happy." (G.B. Shaw)

"Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed." (Mwai Kibaki, President of Kenya - thanks to Christine Comaford, Rules for Renegades)
