Haitian – Spanish relations

Haiti has maintained a long-standing relationship with Spain. Haitians have perceived economic ties to Spain as vital. Spain is an important trading partner for Haiti, for both exports and imports, an important source of foreign assistance, and a target of Haitian emigration. Many private voluntary agencies from Spain function in Haiti. Haitian businesses are closely tied to the Spanish economy. In short, the economic and the political influence of Spain in Haiti is very important.

 

Recently, encouraged by contracts tendered by the Haitian Government with international funds, several Spanish engineering, construction and architecture companies have arrived in Haiti. Three Spanish hotel chains have also developed small-scale projects as the first contact with the Haitian tourism sector.

Haiti serves as a platform for export to other countries in the area, including the United States, and especially for textile products. The import of construction products is another sector that could be attractive to Spanish exporters.
