Economy

The economy of Haiti is developing with strong potential. Nearly two-thirds of all Haitians depend heavily on the agriculture sector, principally in small-scale subsistence farming. As a result, they remain highly vulnerable to damage from frequent natural disasters due to their geographic location. This is further exacerbated by the country's excessive rates of deforestation.

With the help of many international financial institutions, Haiti is seeing moderate growth in its economy in the past several years.
