SeeJesnty is a Youtube channel created by Haitian-American that moved to Port-au-Prince and for the most part focuses on the more positive aspects of Haiti, particularly concerning business creation. His videos are all in English focused on the Haitian diaspora in the USA/Canada. Here are a few interesting videos, but there are more here: https://www.youtube.com/c/SeeJeanty/videos

This video is actually of a mansion under construction, but from 5:00 the owner of the constructing company says a few things including his experience in Santo Domingo and how he decided to go back to Haiti and apply what he learn in the DR. So far it seems the company he founded has reached a level of success that otherwise it woukdn't have had he stayed in the DR or went elsewhere.

Up and coming coffee brand from Jacmel.

A project with Haitian and Dominican investors. One of the Dominicans is interviewed on 6:14.

Farmatrix is Haiti's largest pharmaceutical company founded in the 1980's. According to the owner, the company is currently expanding and they are looking forward to entering other markets.

He also talk about other issues in Haiti. This video is simply an example and should not be discussed here since this type of discussion is prohibited on DR1 due to how controvertial it is and people getting banned left, right and center. It's about colorism in Haiti witnessed by two Haitian-Americans that moved there. From 47:38 the discussion turns to Haiti and how they quickly noticed upon returning to Haiti that most of the business owners are either white or mulattoes (mixed). In fact, one says that who's the manager in a Haitian business can often be identified by the color of the skin. Again, just an example of the topics treated there, but this one is to not be discussed here.

I thought I placed this in the Haiti forum rather than here since the DR must be the focus of the topic in all forums except there.

Interesting indeed. Just curious, has there been ANY progress in utilities. Water, sewer, power ?
