In my estimation, there isn't much the government can do to lure those Haitians back to the country.

First of all, the government is unable to pay them the salary they are accustomed to; and secondly, the long term benefit they are expecting from their adopted countries is non existant in Haiti.

Incentives such as insurance, retirement benefit and so on and so forth are not obtainable in Hati; hence, the reluctance to come back. Perhaps, after they have secure all those securities, they will return.

Maybe, they will be too old to be of any valuable contribution.
