Could Tariffs and Subsidies Boost Haiti’s Economy?

2017-05-17

Agriculture matters, both to Haiti and its new president. One of the biggest issues is tariffs and subsidies. Twenty years after tariffs were dropped, the impact continues to be discussed and debated.

The research project Haiti Priorise sets out to introduce new data on costs and benefits that helps decision-makers to focus on the soundest policies and investments for the nation.

The government, farming leaders, businesses and civil society all helped to identify the biggest challenges and most promising solutions, and the project has asked economists to examine these in-depth, to provide more data for Haitian decision-makers.
