Clinton For Haiti Today

CaribWorldNews, UNITED NATION, NY, Thurs. Oct. 1, 2009: Former United States president Bill Clinton, United Nations Special Envoy to Haiti, is set to return to the Caribbean nation today.

Clinton will kick-off a two-day visit in a bid to boost private sector investment in the impoverished Caribbean nation, the UN said Wednesday.

During his trip, he is set to meet with President Rene Preval and Prime Minister Michele Pierre-Louis.

Accompanying him will be Paul Farmer, his deputy special envoy who was appointed last month to his post.

Earlier this month, the former US leader told the Security Council that the country has `a remarkable opportunity` to overcome decades of misrule and neglect, but major hurdles remain and the international community must step up its support to ensure the Caribbean country can consolidate its gains.
