La Gonave Haiti, soon to be an international paradise island. Project by Global Renewable Energy, Ltd

Please keep an open mind as you watch it...

After watching the video, take your time to read the FAQ about the La Gonave project... I read the whole thing, it is very interesting and I want you to the same.

Read the FAQ about the La Gonave project here...

Here are a few questions answered:

WHY DEVELOP LA GONAVE?

There are many reasons why the Island of La Gonave is ideal for development:

  • It is situated on the Windward Passage which is one of the world's most highly trafficked energy sea lanes
  • It is situated in the center of the Caribbean which makes it an ideal location to locate a cruise ship homeport to service the entire Caribbean from a single port
  • It is a sheltered in the Gulf of La Gonave and protected by the high mountain ranges of the main island of Haiti
  • Since it is undeveloped, it offers the opportunity to create the number one place in the world to do business and thus attract international development and create jobs
  • It has a natural deep seaport on its most western tip that makes it ideal for the development of an industrial city focused on energy projects
  • It is situated such that the Trade Winds blow across the narrowest portion of the island.... Ideal for wind farm development
  • The savannah (least desirable land) of La Gonave is ideal for Jatropha farm development due to altitude and rainfall.

WHY WOULD DEVELOPERS WANT TO DEVELOP ON LA GONAVE WHEN HAITI CANNOT ATTRACT DEVELOPERS?

La Gonave is an island that has remained undeveloped for many years. This offers the opportunity to develop La Gonave as the number one place in the world to do business. This number one ranking will attract developers to the island.

WILL LGDA BE PERMITTED TO TRANSFER THE MINERAL RIGHTS OF LA GONAVE TO DEVELOPERS?

No. The developers of La Gonave will not have access to any mineral rights associated with La Gonave since they are not part of the agreement with the Government of Haiti.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO REMOVE NATURAL RESOURCES FROM LA GONAVE WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING?

No. Removing natural resources from La Gonave requires large equipment that will be readily noticed.

NOW... Answer me this question:

Would you prefer if this project went Dominican Republic?

The last question in the FAQ puzzled me:

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE GOVERNMENT OF HAITI DOES NOT APPROVE THE PROJECT SOON?

The project has been delayed for nearly three years. The developers are becoming impatient. If the project is not approved soon, then it will be moved to Dominican Republic.

So tell me...

Sounds like the only hope for the Haitian people of La Gonave Island.

I see a bright future for these dear people that have been truly suffering for years.

The main concern is the health issues that would arise due to petroleum uses. Otherwise I see a far reaching advantage to this tremendous

I truly believe it would be a wonderful idea for this project to go else where like in the capital.

Lagonave as we know it may be the only virgin land we have left. The "this project" would only benefit the people invading the land. I see this as a passive take over. Dont be fooled by christophe colon talking the job job job language.

The developers would simply bring their own contractors.

From what I've seen, the Lagonave Project could be a great thing for Haiti and the Haitian Peoples specially the Lagonave resideence.

It will create lots of Job, bring Investment and quality of Life, how ever it most not have lup hole or any trick that will appear in later year and become disadvantage to the Haiti and the Haitian people, the work force have to be train from lowest to higher level, the Island residence would need Hospital School Health insurance Hospital, School, student aid to go study abroad.

I think this is a very good idea as long as what they say they mean it, I will not have any problem with that...

I don't live in Haiti if there is a job in Haiti I think a lot of Haitians will go back to help out. I hope this organization in Haiti does not forget to build schools, roads and hospitals.

After the earthquake, a lot of Haitians were left handicapped.

Yes they can develop La Gonave by themselves, if they want to.

This project has a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of false promises...

I was listening to the previous government's spokesperson speaking about this project, he spoke like someone who was under the influence of some kinds of unknown substance...
