Haiti trade hurt by poor infrastructure

Despite producing some of the world's finest mangoes, country manages to export only 10 per cent of the crop.

    Haiti is a poor country but it is rich in natural resources.

    The country grows some of the world's finest mangoes and it is one of the country's biggest exports after textiles.

    It should have a thriving mango industry but it only exports 10 per cent of its crop because of poor infrastructure.
