PUBLIC LAW 111-171-MAY 24, 2010


Public Law 111-171
111th Congress
An Act
May 24, 2010 To extend the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act, to provide customs support
[H.R. 5160] services to Haiti, and for other purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of
Haiti Economic the United States of America in Congress assembled,
Lift Program Act
of 2010. SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
19 USC 2701
note. This Act may be cited as the "Haiti Economic Lift Program
Act of 2010".
19 USC 2703a SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
note.
Congress finds the following:
(1) On January 12, 2010, Haiti was hit by a 7.0 magnitude
earthquake, the worst earthquake to affect Haiti in recorded
history. Aftershocks from the earthquake, measuring up to
6.0 on the Richter scale, continued'for days afterwards.
(2) The earthquake has devastated Haiti's infrastructure,
including homes, offices, factories, roads, ports, communica-
tions, and other facilities. The loss of life attributable to the
earthquake was massive.
(3) Even before the earthquake, Haiti was the poorest
country in the Western Hemisphere, ranking 149 out of 182
countries according to the United Nation's Human Development
Index.
(4) In recent years, however, the Government and people
of Haiti had taken important steps forward to promote economic
growth and development, including making strides towards
establishing a competitive apparel sector.
(5) United States trade preference programs, including the
Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (as amended by the
United States-Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act, the Hai-
tian Hemispheric Opportunity through Partnership Encourage-
ment Act of 2006, and the Haitian Hemispheric Opportunity
through Partnership Encouragement Act of 2008), which extend
duty-free tariff treatment to certain apparel produced in Haiti,
have made an important contribution to Haiti's economic
development efforts.
(6) However, the Haitian apparel sector has been hard
hit by the January 12, 2010, earthquake. A number of apparel
factories based in and around Port-au-Prince have been heavily
damaged, including the collapse of one major apparel factory
that had employed nearly 4,000 workers.
(7) The Port-au-Prince seaport that had served the apparel
trade has been badly damaged. And extensive damage to roads


124 STAT. 1194







PUBLIC LAW 111-171--MAY 24, 2010


has made it difficult to transport apparel to the Dominican
Republic for shipment from ports in that country.
(8) According to estimates by the Department of Commerce,
imports of apparel articles from Haiti to the United States
in 2010 have decreased by 43 percent as compared to the
same period in 2009.
(9) The earthquake has increased significantly the costs
and uncertainty of doing business in Haiti. A strong and
unequivocal commitment from the United States is needed
to help Haiti offset these costs and preserve the gains made
under United States trade preference programs, and to encour-
age buyers and investors to stand with Haiti through this
crisis.
SEC. 3. EXTENSION OF CARIBBEAN BASIN ECONOMIC RECOVERY ACT.

et seq.) is amended-
