Haiti is open for business and ready to rebuild

 

President Michel Martelly of Haiti

Haiti is open for business and ready to rebuild. That's the message the country's new President delivered to world leaders in New York attending the UN General Assembly.

Haiti is still recovering from a massive earthquake in January 2010 which killed 250,000 people and destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure.

Haitian President Michel Martelly says while his country does need aid, it also needs long term investment so people can work and live.

Julie Walker spoke to President Martelly about his experience at the General Assembly.
