Influencers of Industry: Tourism
Marie-Christine Stephenson(Ministry of Tourism) With political transitions post country wide protests that broke out during her transition as Minister in September 2018- Marie is met with the challenge of convincing the world to continue traveling to Haiti. Despite the damage suffered from Expedia and Booking.com’s premature act to remove Haiti from its destination list- Diaspora and internationals are still flying to the country for business and pleasure. Maintaining this flow of activity will be a critical part of Haiti’s economy and Marie is leading the helm in recentering Haiti as the pearl of the caribbean once again.
