Haiti has a serious human resource problem, a government official once told me

A friend of mine, a high-ranking official in the Haitian government once told me Haiti has a serious human resource problem. He explains...

Education in Haiti

When I asked him:

What do you mean?

They are a lot of people, a lot of professionals in Haiti, so what are you talking about?

He replied: "Yes, in Haiti there are many people who claim they can do a job but, in many cases, when you hire them, you realize they cannot even perform a simple task and it's embarrassing."

According to this former government official, incompetence is the norm in Haiti. It is very difficult to find talented people to fill the most critical positions

What do you think about that?

On the other hand, some young haitians geraduate from universities, and cannot find jobs in Haiti after their graduations.

That, to me, is a bigger problem.
