    WASHINGTON – Florida companies learned how they can participate in the rebuilding efforts in Haiti today at the Haitian Reconstruction and Development Conference in Miami. Rick Wade, senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke, participated in the conference’s opening session and delivered closing remarks.
     
    Hosted by the Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Florida, the conference connected public sector experts in procurement, trade, financing, and the Haitian economy with Florida companies offering expertise in critical areas such as agriculture, farming, textiles, tourism and urban housing and development.
     
    “Participation by the private sector in Haiti’s reconstruction will help to create jobs in Haiti as well as support jobs in America,” Wade said during his opening remarks. “This will lead to a lasting partnership through which both Haiti and the United States will grow.”
