CHARLOTTE – Danny Merlin, of Alexander Ricks, is among a dozen North Carolina Bar Association members in Haiti this week to help bolster the country’s economy and business climate.
Merlin serves on the NCBA Board of Governors and chairs the Haiti committee.
The Port-au-Prince Bar Association organizes the conference to discuss methods of attracting investment.
“This country is full of people who scratch out a living however they can, in conditions we can’t even relate to,” NCBA President Kearns Davis. “The needs are great and numerous, but economic opportunity is high on the list. If Haitian lawyers and leaders can strengthen and protect institutions that attract investment and jobs, they can change many lives.”
