    CEHAH will require state implementation of regulations protecting both farmers and investors in the agricultural sector. Investors Many of our agricultural products are in demand in the international market. We should encourage investors to invest in this sector, through the establishment of an infrastructure that will not require a large outlay. For example, the production of mangoes is a very popular sector in Haiti and could be used Haitian consular channels in different countries to popularize the agricultural Haiti. The CEHAH working to establish contacts in this direction to stimulate potential investors to invest in this area. We can conclude that the CEHAH has other plans in various fields. This brief reflection is not a finished work is the beginning of a debate that will be implemented as and when. We are open to criticism and suggestions for Haiti prosperous and a better tomorrow
