Laurent S. Lamothe was the youngest and longest serving Prime Minister of Haiti in modern times. During his tenure which began just after the massive earthquake which devastated Haiti in 2010, Lamothe presided over the design and implementation of an important social policy agenda targeting the poorest sectors of the Haitian population; a massive nationwide building effort including schools, bridges, and roads that are clearly visible throughout Haiti today; and a direct foreign investment strategy that saw such investment increase to its highest level in a generation.
