Miami, FL. June 6, 2017
The Board of Directors of the Haitian American Chamber of Commerce of Florida (HACCOF) and the office of Commissioner Jean Monestime present the Haitian American Business Summit (HABS-2017) being held in Miami, Florida from June 15th, 2017 to June 17th, 2017. The summit will conclude with our 2nd Annual Top 20 under 40
YoPro Presidential Gala on June 17th, 2017.
The Haitian American Business Summit will present a much needed platform for the Haitian American community to interact and explore new opportunities that will further our recent local progress and allow us to continue our investment in Haiti. We are pleased to have the support from Miami and Haiti as we come together to build a bridge and bring about new opportunities. This year we are honored to welcome Haiti’s newly elected President, Mr. Jovenel Moïse.
During his first trip to Miami, President Moïse will also honor us as our keynote speaker at the Top 20 Under 40 YoPro Presidential Gala. His visit supports our collaborative efforts and the Haitian diaspora’s efforts to expand opportunities to attract private sector investments, create jobs, and further advance the development of our Haitian American community.
This conference will start a movement to help gauge the current level of diaspora involvement in Haiti and support new methods of engagement. The Summit and Gala is gearing up to be an exciting and innovating event. We look forward to engaging with everyone and sharing ideas.
This two-day summit is open to the public. Pre-registration is required and tickets can be purchased online at www.haccof.com.
