Haitian Pres. Candidate Aligns With Black Caucus

 WASHINGTON - Haiti Presidential Candidate Michel Martelly is aligning himself with people and events that support his presidential platform of confronting the major unemployment issues in America. This motive is a central focus of the Congressional Black Caucus Convention running through Saturday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, where United States First Lady Michelle Obama will speak about domestic issues.

Michel Martelly understands the importance of creating jobs as one of the methods to achieve the goal of rebuilding the Republic of Haiti. Developing job opportunities and creating a cleaner-greener environment is exactly why Mr. Martelly has put his endorsement behind DBS-ECCO2 Corp and the ECCO2 Haiti Foundation, who recently announced their discussions with the Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive and Haitian government regarding the launch of the "ECCO2 Haiti Project," a clean-tech project directed towards stimulating Haiti's economy by creating employment opportunities and reducing carbon emissions during the restructure of a new Haiti. The clean development mechanism (CDM) project achieves the result of a cleaner and greener Haiti by installing ECCO2's patented technologies in buildings and motor vehicles throughout the 133 communes of Haiti.

As a heavily favored candidate in Haiti's presidential race, Martelly comments, "The ECCO2 Haiti Project brings about so many positives in creating a cleaner and greener Haiti. From placing our nation in the forefront of the fight against global warming, to giving our people job opportunities, and really providing a much needed increase in our steps towards economic recovery." The 2010 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference will feature several panel discussions including Small Business Administration Homeland Security, Department of Labor, and Foreign Affairs who are dedicated to the issues of unemployment among African Americans, making it an important visit on Martelly's campaign trail. Mr. Martelly has been actively meeting with various world leaders discussing his ideas and plans for Haiti if elected inclusive to future media appearances and delegating with political leaders worldwide until the Haiti Presidential election on November 28, 2010.

The Republic of Haiti has been a member of the Kyoto Protocol since 2005 and currently has an estimated national carbon footprint of 10 million metric tons per year according to current statistics. The ECCO2 Haiti Project is expected to offset as much as 80 million metric tons of carbon emissions over the next 10 years. The carbon credits are a high demand commodity in the carbon trading industry that will generate certified emission reduction (CER) credits holding a current value of about $1.5 billion (USD). The carbon credits will be sold to various trading firms and investment banks to finance the ECCO2 Haiti Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose primary focus is to further economic development in Haiti using environmental initiatives as its primary catalyst.
