Port Lafito, Haiti
Port Lafito is Haiti’s first Panamax Port with state of the art equipment and technology. Port Lafito will breathe new life into Haiti by creating new jobs, training for skilled labor, and encouraging foreign investment and development. This project will make a significant impact on the national economy and have a beneficial impact on the more than 10 million people living in the area.
In addition, an International Sister Seaport agreement was signed between Port Lafito and..Port Miami in order to collaborate on the exchange of information and ideas, with the aim to increase cargo and trade between ports. Port Lafito partnered with SSA Marine, the world’s largest independent and privately-held marine terminal operator, to oversee the port and terminal operations.
The opening of Port Lafito is one step toward the larger development of Lafito Global, an economic zone which will include the international port & terminal, an industrial free zone, a business park and residential area among more. The development of Lafito Global will drive the creation of more than 25,000 new jobs in Haiti by 2020, foster a new vibrant economic social center, establish attractive regional logistics and become an industrial hub for the Caribbean.
The efficiencies and modern capabilities provided at the newly built Port Lafito will enable Lafito to improve and broaden the level of service to the Haitian customers. And increase business opportunities in Haiti.
