A word from Minister Stephanie Villedrouin
Dear Friends of Haiti,I am delighted to see you again for the second edition of the Newsletter of the Tourism Ministry, dedicated to the events happening in Haiti, the Ministry of Tourism news and all kind of information related to the tourism sector in Haiti .
At the end of the contest launched in March 2012, the Ministry of Tourism has selected a new logo and new slogan that will be used in a communication campaign to put back the country on the regional and global tourism map. As announced, the Ministry has made his choice among the top 50 logos and slogans first 50 who received the most votes on the contest site www.haititourisme.gouv.ht/concours2012
The final choice for the logo is the logo "choublak" from Xavier Delatour. The logo - the word "Haiti" decorated with a hibiscus flower and a sun - evokes the charm of nature and the profound beauty of the country and landscape. As explained Xavier, "this design of the choublak is the evocation of our national flower, which is a beautiful flower and is also known for its medicinal properties. Each of us has seen the hummingbirds feeding them. The hibiscus adorn many houses, streets across the country and is a true symbol of our landscape ".
The slogan that was chosen is "Experience It!" , from Diana Pierre-Louis. This slogan sums up the powerful and intense experience lived by the visitors who discover Haiti for the first time. When the communication campaign will be directed to Francophone, Creole, and Hispanics communities, that slogan will be translated into French by "Vivez l'experience" in Creole "Se la pou'w la !" and in Spanish by "Vive la experiencia ".
The official launch of the new logo and new slogan will take place in Haiti on 1 June, at the Karibe Convention Center, attended by the President of the Republic of Haiti.

Thank you and happy reading,
- Stephanie Villedrouin, Minister of Tourism of Haiti
