Bill and Hillary Clinton open Haitian industrial park

This industrial park in Haiti could provide progress for a nation grappling with instability. The 300 million dollar project was opened on Monday (October 22) at an event presided over by Bill and Hillary Clinton. Long-term it's hoped the park will create 130,000 jobs and a much needed boost to a country still suffering from the 2010 earthquake. U.N. special envoy Bill Clinton said the project showed Haiti was no lost cause. SOUNDBITE: FORMER U.S. PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON SAYING (English): "What you see here today is an example of what works all over the world and a rebuke to those who say that progress is not possible or that government is always the problem or something else. What works everywhere in the world and every country and works at every income level is when the government and the private sector and the NGOs work together to build a stronger future of shared prosperity." Led by a South Korean textile company, the Caracol park is expected to grow as more companies move in. Located in the north, it could also shift focus away from the overcrowded capital of Port-au-Prince.
