July 31, 2014, Haiti Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe tweets:

"Le Gouvernement a signé aujourd'hui un protocole d'accord avec Carnival Cruises pour la construction d'un resort sur l'Ile de la Tortue."

According to another tweet from Prime Minister Lamothe, the initial investment for the construction of this new resort at Ile de la Tortue (Tortuga Island) is estimated at $70 million.

On a personal note: Tortuga Island is one of the most popular sites in Haiti and the Caribbean as far as tourism is concerned. This land, Tortuga, is synonymous with the Pirates of the Caribbean... Hollywood already made millions and millions of dollars telling the stories of the Pirates in Tortuga. It is about time Haiti cashed in...

Good move by the Haitian Government to encourage the construction of a resort in Tortuga Island (Ile de la Tortue Haiti)... Get Disney to build a Theme Park there while you're at it... LOL...

What do you think about that?
