During their meeting, President Martelly and Winfrey are set to discuss ways to promote the nation’s lesser known attributes to investors as it continues to recover from last year’s devastating earthquake. “I am hoping [Oprah] will serve as an ambassador for Haiti, to help us get the kind of assistance needed,” Martelly said at a trade summit for Caribbean leaders.
After her meeting with President Martelly, Winfrey will also visit a local settlement camp and meet with fashion designer Donna Karan who runs the Urban Zen Foundation which celebrates the work of Haitian artisans.
