Communities and families are being affected by the recent riots in Haiti
July 10, 2018
The Haitian American Chamber of Commerce of Florida (HACCOF) extends its sympathies to all individuals, families, and entities affected by the riots in Haiti over the last week-end. As individuals, we are all saddened by the loss of life and property and extend our support to all the parties affected by the recent unfortunate events. As a Chamber of Commerce, we are very concerned about the impact of the property damage on Haiti’s economy. Haiti has had to rebuild several times in recent years following a major earthquake and hurricane. It is incumbent upon all sectors of the country to acknowledge that the cost of rebuilding is shared by the entire population and that the image of riots and destruction both on the national and international stage discourages job-creating investment that Haiti sorely needs.

The Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida is now accepting applications and nominations for its 2018 YOPRO Awards which recognize the “Top 20 under 40” Young Haitian-Americans Professionals and Leaders within their respective fields.
Even if we are unable to change the President’s opinion, we want him to note that we decry his insults and ask that he refrain from further singling out Haiti and Haitians for negative treatment in future comments. We also ask that Haitians not be removed from positive consideration in any solution that seeks relief for immigrants who have been living here legally with DACA and/or TPS. Haitians should not be “taken out” solely because they do not appeal to the President as the most desirable immigrant group. In spite of the negative comments, Haitian-Americans are great contributors to the “United” States of America.
The membership of the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida Inc. includes Haitian-American businesses and other businesses doing business with or are interested in doing business with the Haitian-American community.
