According to the article, the number of tourists that came to Haiti last year is small compared to Cuba and the Dominican Republic but it is a big improvement from Haiti's previous years.

The same article mentioned that "some have criticized the Haitian government for devoting so much money to promoting tourism while many others are in great need."

Haiti tourism minister Stephanie Villedrouin says tourism promotes employment and attracts wealth... She aint liying... When tourists visit a country, they leave a lot of money behind; the more of a good time they have, the more money they leave behind... Of course where ever they go, that money will fall in somebody's hand...

What do you say to that?

When gov't spent the taxes money on people in needs you never see that money again that 's mine no return, but on the tourism you do not only spend but you. Invested for a big return for long period of time, do you think is because they cares for poor people they just like Judas that was complaining for the expensive perfume Marie gave Jesus he said that money can cares for the poor like he was cares
Jesus said we always gone a have the poor with you, we do not needs add to have the poor but we needs to have tourism, good

Is it tourism or other countries visiting to scout out possible investment opportunities?

I don't want to see Haiti fall victim to opportunists.

Like the U.S. the Orientals and Indians are owning the riches because they come here with money and can invest and open up businesses whereas people living here forever wants the opportunity for business ownerships and cannot even get loans.
