PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - The government of Haiti is hosting Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton today, along with a delegation of foreign investors and a crowd of celebrities.
They're gathering to inaugurate an industrial park that is the centerpiece of the U.S. aid effort since the 2010 earthquake.
The Clintons and others hope the facility will transform northern Haiti by providing thousands of jobs.
The industrial park is more than a hundred miles from the slowly-recovering quake zone.
And some Haitians say it will benefit outsiders more than it will help the people of Haiti -- while harming some of the few pieces of undamaged environment that still exist there.
The celebrities who are gathering for the opening include Sean Penn, who has run his own aid effort in Haiti, as well as actor Ben Stiller and supermodel Petra Nemacova.
The Caracol project was in the works before the quake, but it became a top priority for the Obama administration soon afterward.
