Haiti - Economy : Port Lafito, a historic first - : Haiti news 7/7

The construction of the Port Lafito and of a free zone, located 25 minutes from Port-au-Prince, at a cost of US $150 million, is part of the "Lafito Global" project initiated by GB Group, in partnership with the Haitian government and several other Haitian private sector entrepreneurs, is making great strides.

16 months after the start of work, the Port Lafito (US $ 65 million) should be operational in March. This historical first in the Haitian Port and Maritime sector cements the vision set out years ago by GB Group to build a modern container Port. The size and nature of the infrastructure and superstructure investments being made coupled with SSA’s world class operating standards (port manager) and global marketing network represent a major paradigm shift for the future of the industry in Haiti. Note that the company Port Lafito S.A. has already signed a strategic partnership agreement with SSA Marine to manage its Port and Terminal Operations in Haiti

Blu Lagoon Yacht & Ocean Club a sandy beach paradise, is situated on Ile à Cabrits Island south of Côte des Arcadins with a total area of 16 hectares and is intended to be the recreational facility of the Lafito Global project.

Blu Lagoon will also host a marina able to accommodate 30 recreational vessels, a 4-star boutique hotel to be constructed on an area of approximately 5,000 square meters, tennis courts, restaurants and an array of water activities.

The project also plans to build and sell residential condominiums some of which will sit on stilts over the clear blue water or on the beck with private docks.

This innovative project will greatly help tourism development by creating a space that welcomes both local and international tourists alike. While meeting the highest quality standards, Blu Lagoon is also an opportunity to promote Haitian culture and Haitian community in its entire splendor.

In addition to being an oasis of relaxation and entertainment, the project also represents an attractive investment opportunity for the future condominium owners.
