More than 80 percent of the population lives in poverty and the country relies heavily on remittances and foreign aid. The most important sector of the economy is substance agriculture which employs over 40 percent of the labour force. Despite having one the lowest trade tariffs in the Caribbean and a preferential trade agreement with the United States, Haiti failed to boost its trade due to lack of infrastructure and bureaucracy. Furthermore, the lack of a functioning legal system and endemic corruption make foreign investors reluctant to set up companies.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
