Several members of Laurent Lamothe's cabinet were present at the meeting... The idea is to come up with a plan to change the image of Cap Haitien and Milot to make them look more of a representative of the historic value they represent for the country.

According to Le Nouvelliste, Haiti Tourism minister is taking about replicating Venice in Cap-Haitien. The plan is to open up Grand-Rue in Cap Haitien and move the stores (Magazins) outside the city, keep clean the river at the entrance of Cap Haitien, among other things..

However, he requested the involvement of the state (l"Etat Haitien), in addition to the payment of $200,000 USD needed to study the feasibility of the plan, in order to have full access to information. Otherwise, like dozens of others before him, this plan is doomed to failure, Le Nouvelliste said.
