The Cabinet of the Republic of Haiti 

Conflict: Crisis in Hispaniola

Bienvenue. Byenveni. Welcome to Port-au-Prince where Prime Minister Jean Michel Lapin awaits your arrival in the newly constructed Legislative Palace. Since 2010, Haiti’s vulnerable socio economic climate has led to mass exodus and forced migration both domestically and internationally. It is now up to you and your fellow cabinet members to develop migration management programs to deter the many effects the 2010 Haiti Earthquake had on vulnerable Haitian populations as well as planning for natural disasters that may threaten Haiti in the future. Too long has Haiti been seen as inferior to its neighbor and the international community as a whole. The time is now for Haiti to emerge on a global stage and establish itself as a strong and self-sustaining nation. It is up to the actions of this cabinet. Welcome to the new era of Haiti.
