PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- Haitian President Michel Martelly will host Oprah Winfrey when she visits the Caribbean nation.

Martelly tells The Associated Press that he hopes Winfrey will serve as an ambassador for Haiti. He says he would like her to help Haiti get more assistance for rebuilding from the 2010 earthquake that displaced hundreds of thousands of people.

Winfrey is expected to arrive in Haiti on Sunday. She is to visit a settlement camp run by Hollywood actor Sean Penn's aid group J-P HRO.

Martelly said he will meet with her on Monday.

The president made the announcement Friday while in Trinidad for a trade summit with Caribbean leaders.
