The Haitian government is trying to revive the country’s long stagnant tourism industry with investments totaling more than $160 million. Haiti’s tourism ministry had about $2 million in its budget under the previous administration, and received another $1 million from a Venezuelan oil fund in the aftermath of a destructive storm season, according to the former tourism minister. Today, the department has a budget that’s $4.7 million, plus $27 million from Venezuela’s PetroCaribe fund. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery)
