While it’s been a long time since the devastating quake rocked Haiti, it was just announced that up to 20,000 jobs will be created at new industrial park in Haiti. It comes from a garment giant based in Korea that plans on building what will be the country’s first fabric mill. It is expected to not only bring some form of stability to the Haiti people, but also bring some economic certainty to the volatile region where unemployment is devastatingly high.

The Company which is a major supplier to U.S. retailer’s Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s and GAP, is expanding its garment-making operations to Haiti as the anchor tenant in a new 617-acre industrial park being created in the country’s underdeveloped northern region. For the first time, Haiti’s 2 million-a-week T-shirt-stitching industry will also include the country’s one and only knit and dyeing mill with Sae-A pumping 6,000 tons of ground water a day for its huge export operations.
