Haiti Faces Weak Outlook Amid Political Uncertainty

  • Fitch forecast real GDP growth in Haiti will reach 2.4% in 2019 and 2.0% in 2020.
  • Beyond agriculture and commerce, the textile industry will remain a key driver of growth, underpinning formal employment and exports.
  • Domestic political instability and uncertainty over US policies will undermine investment and limit long-term growth potential.
