ANNUAL REPORT

of the

FISCAL DEPARTMENT

covering the fiscal year

OCTOBER, 1940-SEPTEMBER, 1941


Port-au-Prince, Haiti, December 15, 1941.
To the
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE
BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

Sirs:

On September 13, 1941, an Executive Agreement, the full text of which
is published as an Appendix to this report, was signed by the Haitian and
United States governments. In brief, the Accord provided for the abolition
of the Office of the Fiscal Representative and for the reorganization of the
Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti by appointment of a new Board
of Directors composed, under the Honorary Presidency of the Haitian
Minister of Finance, of three citizens of the United States, to be chosen by
mutual agreement between the two governments, and three citizens of
Haiti, to be appointed by the President of Haiti.
The Agreement provided also for the appointment of two Co-Presidents
of the Board of whom one, the Haitian Minister of Finance should act as
Honorary President and preside at Board meetings, while the other, one
of the three citizens of the United States, should represent the holders
of the bonds of 1922 and 1923 and should coordinate and direct the
functions and activities of the Bank's two main Divisions. These two
main Divisions, as provided for in the Agreement, are the Commercial
Department and a new Department known as the Fiscal Department,
organized to take over the functions previously exercised by the Office of
the Fiscal Representative.
The three American members of the new Board of Directors of the
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti, appointed pursuant to the
provisions of the Agreement, are:
Mr.W. H. Williams, formerly Vice President and Manager of the Banque
National de la R6publique d'Haiti;
Mr. Thomas Pearson, formerly acting General Receiver of Dominican
Customs;
Mr. Edward F. Roosevelt, formerly associated with industrial and commercial
enterprises in the United States and Europe.





BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


The three Haitian members of the new Board are:
Mr. Abel Lacroix, Secretary of State for Finance and Commerce;
Mr. Edouard Esteve, a prominent man of affairs of Port-au-Prince;
Mr. Edmond Etienne, a Haitian Government official of high standing and
long experience, previously Director of Customs at Cap-Haitien.

Mr. Abel Lacroix, in addition to serving as a regular voting member of
the Board serves as Honorary President since he is, at present, also Minister
of Finance.
Mr. Williams is the American member of the new Board charged with
representing the holders of the bonds of 1922 and 1923 and with coordi-
nating the functions of the Bank's two main Divisions.
At the first meeting of the new Bank Board, held on September 30,
1941, Mr. C. E. van Waterschoodt, formerly Vice-President and Assistant
Manager of the Bank and a member of the previous Board of Directors,
was named Vice President in charge of the Commercial Department. Mr.
Thomas Pearson was named Vice President in charge of the Fiscal De-
partment.
The Executive Agreement, which was signed on September 13, 1941,
became effective on October 1st, following. As of the latter date, the
property and funds of the Fiscal Representative were transferred to the
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti as depositary of the Haitian
Government, and the offices of the Fiscal Representative and Deputy Fiscal
Representative ceased to exist.
A report on the commerce and finances of the Republic of Haiti has been
prepared by the Office of the Fiscal Representative at the end of each of
the last twenty-four fiscal years. These Annual Reports have come to be
recognized as an authoritative source of current information regarding the
economic life of the country. The Banque Nationale de la Republique
d'Haiti, therefore, intends to continue their publication.
The present report, the first prepared by the Fiscal Department, Banque
National de la Republique d'Haiti, covers the fiscal year beginning October
1, 1940 and ending September 30, 1941, a period during the entirety of
which the Office of the Fiscal Representative was still in existence and
carrying out the functions defined by the Accord of August 7, 1933. It is
from the records of the Office of the Fiscal Representative turned over to
the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Ha'iti
that the following pages have, for the most part, been compiled and it is
fitting, in this connection, to make of record here, the many years of service
rendered in Haiti by Mr. Sidney de la Rue, Fiscal Representative, and Mr.
Rex A. Pixley, Deputy Fiscal Representative.





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Mr. de la Rue was originally appointed Financial Adviser-General
Receiver for Haiti on March 9, 1929. He served in this capacity until
1933 when, under the provisions of the Accord of August 7 of that year,
he was appointed Fiscal Representative. He resigned from the position of
Fiscal Repr6sentative after some eight years of service on May 15, 1941.
Mr. Pixley entered the Office of the Financial Adviser-General Receiver
on May 5, 1923, and served in several capacities over a period of some ten
years prior to his appointment, under the terms of the Accord of August 7,
1933, as Deputy Fiscal Representative. His services as Deputy Fiscal
Representative continued until October 1, 1941, the date on which the
functions of that office passed under the control of the Banque Nationale
de la R6publique d'Haiti.


Export Values Increase
The value of Haiti's total foreign trade during the fiscal year beginning
October 1, 1940 and ending September 30, 1941, was Gdes. 70,442,085.
In the preceding year, foreign commerce had been valued at Gdes.
66,695,774. It should be added, however, that the immediately preceding
fiscal year is the only year in the past twenty-five with which a favorable
comparison can be made.
The gain in total foreign trade over the previous year was due to an
expansion of Haitian exports at higher prices. In 1939-40, the value of
exports had been Gdes. 26,995,200. In 1940-41 it was Gdes. 33,286,537.
The fiscal year 1939-40 is the record low year in Haitian export values.
If we pass over that year it would be necessary to go back to 1920-21 to
find a year when exports have been lower than in the year just passed.
The value of the import trade on the other hand declined from Gdes.
39,700,574 in 1939-40 to Gdes. 37,155,548 in 1940-41 which is,
incidentally, the lowest year on record in import values.
Total government revenues during the year reached Gdes. 26,929,-
882.83. Expenditures from revenues amounted to Gdes. 25,565,824.25,
leaving an operating surplus for the year of Gdes. 1,364,058.58.
By way of comparison, total government receipts in the fiscal year
1939-40 were Gdes. 26,873,410.55; expenditures from revenues, Gdes.
28,478,637.37; and there was an operating deficit of Gdes. 1,605,226.82
for the year.
At the opening of the fiscal year, there were indications that government
revenues would be even lower than during the preceding year. The price
of coffee was lower than at any time during several decades. It seemed
doubtful, at the beginning of the year, that any substantial portion of the





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


sugar produced or any substantial part of the cotton crop would be sold
abroad. The budget estimate for the year was reduced to Gdes. 25,200,000.
Results during the first three quarters of the fiscal year bore out the view
that revenues would be lower. During the first quarter, revenues were
Gdes. 727,000 less than in the fiscal year 1939-40; at the end of the first
half they were still Gdes. 654,000 less than in the previous year. When
the third quarter ended in June, receipts were Gdes. 1,252,000 below
receipts during the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year. During
the last quarter of the year there was a decided and unexpected improvement
in foreign trade and in government receipts. Particularly noticeable was
the improvement during the month of August, but it was not until
September, the final month of the year, that receipts, for the first time,
moved ahead of the amount collected in the previous fiscal year. The
amount by which receipts finally exceeded those of the previous year was
Gdes. 56,472.28.
At the end of the first quarter of the year the prospect was so unfavorable
that it was considered some reduction would have to be made in interest
payments on outstanding bonds. The situation was placed before the
Foreign Bondholders Protective Council. The plan which was finally
worked out was a postponement of one-third of the April and October
interest on Series A and C bonds.
In view of the improvement in trade and revenues of the last quarter
of the year the Government decided to pay the interest posponed from
April and to meet the October interest in full. The funds necessary were
placed in the hands of the Fiscal Agent in September and at the year end
Haiti had met all interest obligations on its public debt.
The rise in coffee prices and the larger than usual shipments of coffee
near the end of the fiscal year were important factors in the improvement
of the general trade position during the later months of the year. There
were other factors: banana production continued its increase to a new high;
sisal shipments also reached record volume; contrary to expectations, cotton
and sugar were marketed in substantial quantities.
Coffee exports in the fiscal year 1940-41 totalled 22,641,275 kilos
valued at Gdes. 12,918,466 as compared with 16,187,765 kilos valued
at Gdes. 10,243,491 in the previous year.
Banana shipments reached 3,283,645 stems, a 45 per cent volume
increase over the 2,268,387 stems exported in the previous year.
Sisal shipments for the fiscal year 1940-41 amounted to 10,797,222
kilos valued at Gdes. 4,316,865. Compared with the previous year when
7,871,118 kilos of sisal valued at Gdes. 3,366,685 were shipped, this is
an increase of 37 per cent in quantity and 28 per cent in value.




REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


During 1940-41 exports of cotton amounted to 2,630,405 kilos.
Cotton exportation has been declining for several years and approaching
the low levels of twenty years ago. The decrease from the previous year
was 15 per cent in quantity and 24 per cent in value.
Import values dropped from Gdes. 39,700,574 in 1939-40 to Gdes.
37,155,548 in 1940-41. Decreased quantities in the importation of
cement, lumber, jute sacks, automobiles, fish and wheat flour contributed
to the total decline. It is interesting to note that the quantity of gasoline
imported increased, on the other hand, 45 per cent over the quantity
imported in 1939-40.
Haiti's trade with the United States continued to increase. During the
year under review, the United States and dependencies took 87.92 per cent
of all of Haiti's exports and sold to Haiti 83.58 per cent of total Haitian
imports. During the closing month of the year 97.94 per cent of all
Haitian exports went to the United States. This is the culmination of a
trend which began with the introduction of Haitian coffee into the United
States market and which has been accelerated by the war.
Total customs revenues during the year amounted to Gdes. 21,466,-
438.34 of which Gdes. 18,355,239.97 came from the import tariff and
Gdes. 3,067,543.58 from export duties. After five successive years in
which there were increases, internal revenue returns declined. The amount
collected was Gdes. 4,878,926.03 against Gdes. 5,245,953.95 in fiscal
year 1939-40.
At the beginning of the fiscal year the gross public debt was Gdes.
60,871,550.33 and at the year-end it was Gdes. 68,096,049.72. The
increase in the public debt was entirely due to expenditures in connection
with the public works program on which Gdes. 7,253,698.44 were
expended during the year.
The public works program, which was inaugurated in July 1938,
originally called for expenditures of approximately twenty-five million
gourdes over a period of three to four years. By September 30, 1941,
expenditures under the contract had reached Gdes. 24,747,362.42. An
arrangement was made for an additional credit of Gdes. 2,500.000. The
term of the contract was not extended.


Trade Position Improves
During the fiscal year 1940-41, foreign goods valued at Gdes
37,155,548 were imported into Haiti while Haitian exports were valued
at Gdes. 33,286,537, creating an import balance of Gdes. 3,869,011. This
is the fifth consecutive year in which there has been an excess of imports
over exports, whereas normally the balance shifts back and forth as between
imports and exports every two or three years.





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


In each of the last five years the balance in favor of imports has been:
fiscal Year Gourdes
1936-37 ...................................................... 1,221,210
1937-38...................................................... 3,241,937
1938-39 ...................................................... 4,565,508
1939-40........................................................ 12,705,374
1940-41 ...................................................... 3,869,011
Total excess of imports for the period:..................... 25,603,040

Available records cover fiscal years since 1916-17. During that whole
period of twenty-five years, the excess of imports has been Gdes.
31,984,963. The greater part of the difference between total exports and
total imports may be regarded, therefore, as having accumulated in recent
years. An examination of table No. 1 annexed to this report showing values
of imports and exports will show that, except for the years during and
immediately after the first world war when there were violent fluctuations,
differences between exports and imports have not been large and the balance
in one direction or the other was not long sustained.
How closely imports into Haiti are limited by exports was illustrated
when, after exports had set a new low level in 1939-40, imports responded
by sinking in 1940-41 to the lowest level of the past twenty-five years
despite an increase of six million gourdes in export values during the latter
year, and continued expenditures on the public works program.
The first factor in recent years which could affect the balance of trade
by providing measurable purchasing power not derived from exports -
the expenditures within the country on the public works program of capital
borrowed abroad had the effect which was to be expected in the case of
close dependency of imports upon purchasing power coming from abroad
either from exports or investment of foreign capital. Expenditures under
the public works program from October 1, 1938 to September 30, 1941,
totalled Gdes. 24,430,244.73. The accumulated import balance during
the same period was Gdes. 21,139,893.
That the adverse balance should continue while the release of purchasing
power within the country not coming from exports continued and while
amortization payments on the funded debt were postponed, was not
surprising. It is the drop in the import balance amounting to almost nine
million gourdes below the import balance of last year which calls for
explanation, particularly in view of known capital expenditures of foreign
funds. Investment of foreign capital has been made during the year in
the construction of a modern airport at Port-au-Prince. Then too expen-
ditures by the Socift6 Haitiano-Americaine de Developpement Agricole
began during the year; and capital expenditures by the Standard Fruit
1 Steamship Company of Hayti for banana development have continued.
All of these investments contributed to the import side of the trade balance.




REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


All of the factors which contribute to the final net balance of trade are
too numerous for exhaustive examination in this report. A few which,
obviously, were of the greater importance in causing a decrease in the excess
of imports over exports from the excess recorded in the previous year,
were:
(1) In the preceding year exports had set a record low. Imports in
that year did not register a corresponding decline, but maintained the
average level of the two preceding years. The value of imports exceeded the
total return from exports plus the amounts expended in Haiti or for
foreign purchases under the public works contract, by some four million
gourdes. A lowering of the import level and decrease in the import excess
in the following year was a natural consequence.
(2) Expenditures under the contract for public works in 1940-41
decreased by Gdes. 1,601,687.25 from the amount spent in the previous
year. Furthermore, a somewhat smaller proportion of expenditures was
for the purchase of foreign machinery, equipment and materials -
expenditures which are reflected immediately in the trade statistics.
(3) Another factor which contributed to the decline in the import
balance during the year under review was a change in the method of
calculating banana export values. In statistics previous to 1940-41, bananas
were valued at the amounts paid for purchase of fruit. In the statistics for
the past fiscal year, the value was adjusted to include costs of transportation
to the wharves and loading charges, that is, the actual amount estimated
by the Fruit Company to have been spent in connection with taking the
fruit out of the country. This happens to be one factor which can be
accurately measured. The known effect is substantial. Had bananas in
1939-40 been evaluated at the present rate (Gdes. 2.35 per stem) instead
of the purchase price which averaged Gdes. 1.40 per stem, the valuation of
the 2,268,387 stems of bananas shipped in 1939-40 would have been over
two million gourdes higher and the statistical adverse balance of trade two
million gourdes less.
(4) The increased exportation which cut down the accumulated import
balance came near the end of the fiscal year, too late perhaps, to be reflected
in imports prior to September.


Trade by Countries and Commodities

Imports
The following table shows the percentage of Haiti's imports from the
principal countries of origin for the fiscal years 1940-41 and 1939-40.
The most striking feature of this aspect of Haitian commerce in 1940-41
was the shift, because of the war, from the British Commonwealth and

other countries, to the United States as a source of supply for Haitian
imports. Schedule No. 1, annexed to this report, shows in detail imports

au-Prince handled during the previous fiscal year 79.68 per cent of all
imports.
Cap-Haitien fell in second place with 6.66 per cent; Saint-Marc in
third place with 3.36 per cent; Cayes was fourth with 2.62 per cent and
Gonaives fifth with 2.42 per cent. The remaining 5.33 per cent was
distributed among the other ten ports of entry.

Coffee

Coffee exports took a sharp upward swing from 16,187,765 kilos in
1939-40 to 22,641,275 kilos in 1940-41.

That Haiti was able to export such an amount of coffee with all its
European markets closed was due to the successful operation of the Inter-
American Coffee Quota Agreement, which stabilized prices and allocated
equitably the United States market among the various producing countries.
Of the 20,542,000 kilos shipped to the United States in the fiscal year
1940-41, an amount of 2,850,347 kilos represented advance shipments
under the 1941-42 quota.

Cotton exports declined by 15.28 per cent from the 1939-40 level to
2,630,405 kilos in 1940-41. Unit prices also declined as will be seen

Sugar
Exports of raw sugar registered a decline of 33.61 per cent in quantity
and of 56.70 per cent in value from the 1939-40 levels. Sugar exports in
1940-41 amounted to 19,819,590 kilos valued at Gdes. 2,046,122.
The drop in exports of raw sugar was not unexpected, as it had been
foreseen that shipments to the United Kingdom would be sharply curtailed
under war conditions.
The average F.O.B. prices for sugar for the past twelve years, as comput-
ed from customs records, are given below:

Sisal
During 1940-41 exports of sisal reached a new high of 10,797,222
kilos, valued at Gdes. 4,316,865. This was an increase of 37.18 per cent
in quantity and of 28.22 per cent in value over exports of this commodity
in 1939-40, another record year.

Bananas
Although the 3,283,645 stems of bananas exported during 1940-41
represent only a 44.76 per cent increase over 1939-40 shipments, the value
recorded, Gdes. 7,761,732, is 146.54 per cent greater than the value
recorded for the previous fiscal year.
This sharp increase in value is largely accounted for by the fact that in
1939-40 the values were based on the actual prices paid to growers, whereas
in 1940-41, the values recorded represent the F.O.B. cost to the Standard
Fruit F3 Steamship Company of the bananas exported.
The following table shows the number of stems of bananas exported
during the year, the values and the ports of shipment:

Franco-Haitian Commercial Convention

It was explained in the last Annual Report that, with trade between
Haiti and France at a standstill, no advantage was to be obtained from the
Franco-Haitian Treaty by either Haiti or France. On the other hand,
nations having commercial agreements with Haiti containing the most-
favored-nation clause were entitled to benefit by the reduced duty rates
accorded France by the Treaty. The result was lower returns from the
import tariff on certain categories of goods than would otherwise have
been obtained.
Shortly after the beginning of the fiscal year the provisions in the Treaty,
according the special duty rates to France, and operating to the detriment
of the Haitian Treasury, were suspended by an exchange of notes between
the two governments.





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Tariff Modifications
The law of November 18, 1940, established a separate schedule for
artificial silk, which had formerly been classified and taxed on the same
basis as natural silk. Drastic reductions were made in the rates of duty
applicable to both categories.
On October 30, 1940, export duties on all types of coffee were reduced
by one-third, in view of the low prices prevailing for this product at that
time. By June, 1941, coffee prices had risen to a more reasonable level, and
the export duties on coffee previously in effect were re-established by the
decree-law of June 3, 1941.
Another important tariff modification was the law of March 11, 1941,
designed to provide a more equitable export tax on sugar.

Shipping
The number of steam and motor vessels touching at Haitian ports during
the fiscal year 1940-41 was 442, as compared with 498 vessels during thl
previous fiscal year, and 657 in 1938-39.
With the prolongation and spread of war, there was cancellation of
cargo and passenger and tourist cruise ships calling at Haitian ports. For a
country so situated, geographically, as is Haiti, the maintenance of adequate
sea transport facilities is a matter of prime necessity.
The following table shows Haitian export tonnage, by principal
commodities, for the fiscal year 1940-41:
'Metric tons

The net registered tonnage of ships calling at Haitian ports in the year
under review was 1,253,681 tons. During the fiscal year 1939-40, the net
tonnage of the vessels touching at Haitian ports was 1,412,023 tons.
American ships carried to Haiti in 1940-41 merchandise representing,
in terms of value, 55.84 per cent of total imports. During the preceding
fiscal year, American vessels handled 55.36 per cent of imports.
Vessels of Dutch nationality, during 1940-41, carried 27.11 per cent
of imports as compared with 23.40 per cent in the fiscal year 1939-40.
Ships under the Norwegian flag handled 8.90 per cent of imports in 1940-
41. In 1939-40, Norwegian vessels accounted for 14.92 per cent of total
imports. British ships during the year under review carried to Haiti 2.37
per cent, and in 1939-40, 1.38 per cent of imports. The balance, 5.78





BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


per cent, was carried on vessels of various other nationalities. During the
previous fiscal year, 3.30 per cent of total imports was carried on vessels
of other nationalities than those listed.
Haiti's export trade during the last two fiscal years was distributed as
follows among the ships of various nationalities engaged in this trade:
Dutch vessels took 42.10 per cent in 1940-41 and 39.19 per cent in 1939-
40. American vessels handled 27.12 per cent during 1940-41, as compared
with 11.94 per cent in the previous fiscal year. Ships flying the British
flag took 7.57 per cent of total exports during the year 1940-41 and 29.62
per cent during the fiscal year 1939-40. Norwegian ships during 1940-41
took 0.53 per cent of exports as compared with 1.78 per cent during the

previous year. The balance of exports during 1940-41, mounting to 22.68
per cent, was distributed among vessels of various other nationalities. These
vessels carried during the previous fiscal year 12.31 per cent of total exports.
No French vessels touched at Haitian ports during the fiscal year 1940-
41. During the fiscal year 1939-40, French vessels carried 1.64 per cent of
imports and 5.16 per cent of exports.

an important contribution to the economic development of Haiti.
In 1941, the Company's Haitian operations averaged 15 hydroplanes
weekly. From January to November 1941, inclusive, 513 passengers
arrived in Haiti by air and 1,044 passengers left by air. The number of
incoming express packages during the same period was 922, while outgoing
express packages totalled 387. Total of outgoing mail from January to
November inclusive, amounted to 1,689 kilos.


Government Revenues

Government revenues in 1940-41 classified by sources were as follows:
1940-41 1939-40

Customs:
Imports .................................... 18,355,239.97 68.2 68.1

Total revenues........................ 26,929,882.83 100.00 100.00

From the percentage columns in the foregoing table it will be seen that
there was but little change from the previous year in the relative position
of the important classifications of revenues- import duties, export duties
and internal revenues. A slightly higher percentage of total revenues wa\
derived from export duties, while internal revenues accounted for 1.4 per
cent less. The less important category, miscellaneous government receipts,
doubled in percentage because a new source of revenue the ten per cent
levy on communal receipts entered into this classification. This will
be explained in detail under the sub-section on miscellaneous receipts.

Customs Receipts
Total receipts from customs sources amounted to Gdes. 21,466,438.34.
The variation from the previous year's total, when the yield from combined
customs sources was Gdes. 21,227,287.42, was exceptionally small.
There was, furthermore, little change in the proportion of the total
derived from separate customs sources. The percentages of total customs
derived from the different classifications in 1939-40 were: import duties






18 BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

86.17 per cent; export duties 13.48 per cent; and miscellaneous customs,
0.35 per cent. In 1940-41 the percentages were: import duties, 85.51;
export duties, 14.29; and miscellaneous customs, 0.20, respectively.
The principal sources of import revenues in order of yield and compared

Returns from export duties increased from Gdes. 2,861,940.36 collected
in 1939-40 to Gdes. 3,067,543.58 for the year under review.
Export revenues are principally derived form the specific duties levied
on coffee. The quantity of coffee shipped during the year was 22,641,275
kilos against 16,187,765 kilos in the previous year. Due to low prices, the
rate of duty on coffee was lowered by 33 1/3 per cent during the period
from October 30, 1940 to June 10, 1941 and, as a consequence, the return
from coffee duties was but little above the amount recorded in the previous
year despite the increase in exportation.
By sources, export revenues were as follows in 1940-41:

Internal Revenues
Receipts from all internal revenue sources totalled Gdes. 4,878,926.03
during the fiscal year. In the preceding year Gdes. 5,245,953.95 had been
collected. The decrease- Gdes. 367,027.92 is seven per cent of the
total collected in 1939-40.





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 19

Excise produced 24.2 per cent of total internal revenues. The amount
collected was Gdes. 1,181,224.47. The excise list includes alcohol and
tobacco products, salt, vegetable oil, lard substitutes, and soap. Some
importations of gasoline pay excise. Thirty-nine per cent (Gdes. 455,-
560.56) of all excise collected came from the cigarette tax. Excise on
alcohol distilled from cane juice amounting to Gdes. 305,826.42 supplied
twenty-six per cent of the total. Excise on vegetable oil has come to be of
importance in recent years. During 1940-41 the yield was Gdes.
225,015.58 or 19 per cent of the total excise collected.
The yield from the tax on salt declined to Gdes. 38,288.98 from Gdes.
70,879.35 collected in 1939-40. This tax was first levied in the fiscal year
1932-33. Effective control of contraband salt has never been attained and
at the end of the fiscal year under review the tax was repealed.
During the fiscal year, 21.5 per cent of total internal revenues came from
public service charges. In addition to the Post Office, the Government
owns and operates the following public services: the telegraph and telephone
systems; the urban hydraulic systems; and for the most part, the rural
irrigation systems. Maintenance of these services is provided for in the
general budget while service charges are accounted for as internal revenue
receipts.
The following is a comparison of receipts from, and expenditures by,
these services: 1940-41 1940-41

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


The most drastic drop in the above list occurred in registration fees
This does not mean, however, that registration fees have dropped below
the amount normally collected. It is due to the absence of special recording
fees incidental to the naturalization of aliens. In the previous year fees ol
this nature had been responsible for an increase above normal whicl
corresponded roughly to the decrease this year.
That identity card fees should decrease is disappointing. It had been
expected that returns from this tax would increase from year to year until
the total corresponded more closely to the estimated adult population.
Collection of the tax, however, from peasant farmers who make up a large
proportion of the population, involves political -social factors which
cannot be ignored. On the other hand, there has not been the hoped-for
response from the privileged classes.
The next largest decrease was that of Gdes. 57,275.09 in excise returns
from cigarettes. The normal trend of cigarette consumption is upward
rather than downward and analysis of fluctuations in excise returns from
cigarettes usually shows them to be due to the purchase of large quantities
of revenue stamps at irregular intervals. The drop from the previous year
was due rather to this factor than to any change in consumption of
cigarettes.

Miscellaneous Receipts
Miscellaneous receipts of the government totalled Gdes. 361,558.47
in 1940-41, an amount nearly double the sum of Gdes. 183,473.34
collected in 1939-40.
In table 37 miscellaneous receipts are grouped as follows:
Gourdes
Return on investments............................ 79,004-05
Conversion of francs................................ 17,092.91
Communal contributions.......................... 215,537.16
Other miscellaneous.................................. 49,924.35
Total .............................................. 361,558.47

The largest source of miscellaneous receipts the ten per cent levy on
communal revenues is new. The levy was put into effect by a law of
October 28, 1940, which provided that all communes should, during the
fiscal year 1940-41, contribute monthly to the Public Treasury ten per cent
of their gross receipts.
Returns on investments include: (a) interest on amortization and
coupon accounts in New York, (b) return on bonds held in the Treasury
account, and (c) dividends from the Banque Nationale de la R6publique
d'Haiti.
Interest on amortization and coupon accounts amounted to Gdes.
11,797.40 during the fiscal year.




REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The amount of interest received from the bonds held in the Treasury
Investment account was Gdes. 32,206.65. The value of bonds held in the
STreasury Investment account, calculated at cost prices, was Gdes. 337,-
:386.90 at September 30, 1941. The total number of bonds held was
the same as at the beginning of the year.
Dividends declared by the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti
and credited as miscellaneous receipts amounted to Gdes. 35,000.00. This
figure represents one-third of the total dividends declared by the Bank.
Returns from the second source of miscellaneous receipts mentioned
above- conversion of francs-declined from Gdes. 21,357.05 in 1939-
40 to Gdes. 17,092.91 in 1940-41. Receipts from this source consist of
interest on funds held in trust by the National City Bank of New York
for the benefit of the remaining bondholders of the 1910 loan, when, as,
and if they choose to redeem their bonds. As bonds are redeemed the
redemption fund becomes smaller and the interest received decreases. Interest
on the funds at the rate of 2 1/2 per cent per annum is paid to the Haitian
Government in francs and converted monthly into dollars. There was a
balance of Frs. 6,984,243.75 in the redemption fund at September 30,
1940. The balance on September 30, 1941, amounted to Frs.
6,979,293.75.
Other miscellaneous receipts consist of interest and amortization
payments on treasury loans to communes, and funds reverting to the
Treasury through prescription of unpaid checks. Returns from "other
miscellaneous" sources decreased from Gdes. 60,485.24 in 1939-40 to
Gdes. 49,924.35 in 1940-41.

Government Expenditures
Before comparing in detail expenditures during the year with expendi-
tures during the immediately preceding year it is worth while to examine
the general trend of expenditures over the recent past. By so doing we
can get a better perspective of the present situation. A year-to-year
comparison of expenditures from revenue, with the revenue receipts, over
the period from 1916-17 to the fiscal year just ended is shown on Chart
No. 5. Only expenditures from revenue are shown on the chart. Non-fiscal
expenditures are not included. The amount spent on the public works
program was made available under the contract for public works and as
this amount, like other non-fiscal receipts, is not available for ordinary
operating expenses of the government, the accounting is kept separately
from revenue receipts and revenue expenditures.
Four fiscal years have passed since the November 1937 decline in coffee
prices. Haitian revenues never recovered the levels attained previous to the
decline. Lacking the reserves necessary to maintain expenditures above
receipts over any length of time, the level of expenditures necessarily had
to be quickly brought down to the revenue level.





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


The following table sets forth expenditures from revenue over eight
years in order that the last four years may be compared with an equa
number of preceding years. Expenditures from revenue over the past eight

TOTAL REVENUE RECEIPTS OF HAITI AND EXPENDITURES FROM REVENUES
FISCAL YEARS 1916-17 TO 1940-41


Expenditures from 1933-34 through 1936-37 averaged Gdes. 36.4
millions, and from 1937-38 through 1940-41, the average was 28.1
millions. The reduction from the level of 1936-37 and prior years, to
that of 1937-38 and years subsequent thereto was effected for the most
part by virtual suspension of amortization payments on the public debt,
and by the reduction in amounts made available from revenue for public
works.
The average amount expended for service of the public debt during the
past four fiscal years has been Gdes. 2,997,528. Over the previous period
of four years, while full amortization payments on outstanding bonds were
being made, the average was Gdes. 8,361,932.



* Excluding Gdes. 5,000,000, the purchase price of the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique d'Haiti.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 23
t
I During the past four fiscal years expenditures on the public works service
t have averaged Gdes. 3,368,130. Over the previous four-year period ex-
penditures had averaged Gdes. 5,801,453. The public works program has
been in effect since 1938 and new construction taken care of by The J. G.
White Engineering Corporation has permitted the reduction in appropri-
ations for the Public Works Service.
Thus the level of expenditures over the last four years was Gdes. 8.3
millions below the level of the previous four-year period. During the same
period expenditures for public debt and public works were Gdes. 7.8
millions lower.
The further decrease from the amount spent in 1939-40 to the amount
spent in 1940-41 was effected by means of reductions in the salaries of
government employees amounting to either five, ten or twenty per cent,
the number of employees in the latter group being by far the largest.
During the past year the amount expended from revenue (Gdes. 25,565,-
824.25) was 10.2 per cent less than the amount (Gdes. 28,478,637.37)
expended in the previous year. The unobligated treasury surplus at the
beginning of the year was only Gdes. 355,933.12 and expenditures,
therefore, obviously had to be kept strictly within the limit of current
revenues. It did not appear at the beginning of the year that revenues
would exceed Gdes., 25,200.000. Drastic reductions from the previous
expenditure budgets of the various departments and services had to be
made to lower appropriations to the twenty-five million gourdes of revenues
in prospect. The reductions generally took the form of salary decreases -
in most cases a straight twenty per cent cut having been made.
Revenues increased in the last two months of the fiscal year but the salary
cuts remained in effect throughout the year. As a result there was an
operating surplus which, by the end of the fiscal year, eased the treasury
position considerably.
During the year supplementary credits in the amount of Gdes 488,-
370,39, and extraordinary credits totalling Gdes. 606,511.19 were opened.
This does not mean that expenditures were increased by Gdes. 1,094,-
881.58 above ordinary appropriations. For the most part, supplementary
or extraordinary credits were accompanied by cancellations of equivalent
amounts from other budgetary articles. Then too it should be recalled
that appropriations are authorizations, not obligations, to spend; and that
extraordinary credits are opened for expenditure within two years. The
balance unexpended of extraordinary credits at September 30, 1941 was
Gdes. 58,114.35. Actual expenditures for the year exceeded ordinary

The Garde d'Haiti is not only the country's military force but its polio
force as well. Expenditures of the Garde surpass those of any other Servic
of the government by a wide margin. Although expenditures were reduce
by Gdes. 1,057,773.49 from the previous year, the Garde still absorbec
over twenty-five per cent of all expenditures from revenue. Salary decrease:
put into effect by the Garde amounted to five per cent of the salaries of
enlisted personnel and twenty per cent of the salaries of officers. There
was one supplementary credit opened to the Garde during the year. It wai
in the sum of Gdes. 25,600.00.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


There was an increase in expenditures for debt service amounting to
,Gdes. 115,237.11, despite the fact that no appropriations were made for
amortization on the public debt, whereas in the preceding year some Gdes.
100,000 had been appropriated for this purpose. The increase was due
to the growing amount necessary to pay interest on the promissory notes
issued from month to month under the Public Works Contract. Interest
payments on the notes and revolving fund totalled Gdes. 794,983.64
against Gdes. 573,581.91 in 1939-40.
The Public Works Service cut expenditures by Gdes. 537,077.28 from
the amount expended during the previous year. It has been pointed out
how the general level of expenditures of the Public Works Service has been
affected in recent years by the Public Works Contract with the J. G. White
Engineering Corporation. The decrease in 1940-41 from the amount
expended in 1939-40 by this Service was brought about by reduction in
the amounts expended for salaries and wages, acquisition of property, and
for repairs and maintenance. Extraordinary credits were opened to the
'Public Works Administration for the following purposes: purchase of land
needed for the captation of a spring essential to the creation of a water
supply system for Kenscoff (Gdes. 10,000); replacement of the church
Sroof at Gonaives (Gdes. 15,300); and repairs to the Post Office at Port-
au-Prince (Gdes. 8,173.43). Supplementary credits were opened in the
article from which the expenditures of the Telephone and Telegraph Service
are made (Gdes. 15,000); and a supplementary credit increased by Gdes.
4,050 the amount available during the year for maintenance of the National
Palace.
The next largest decrease after the Garde d'Haiti and the Public Works
Service was made by the Department of Public Instruction. Of economies
totalling Gdes. 451,993.03 over Gdes. 400,000 came from salary re-
ductions. Supplementary credits totalling Gdes. 30,962 were opened to
this Department during the year. Extraordinary credits were opened as
follows: Gdes. 13,800 to cover expenses of school teachers studying
abroad; hydraulic installation, Gdes. 3,000; and customs duties on supplies,
Gdes. 3,711.30.
Total expenditures of the Public Health Service for the year were Gdes.
2,108,125.11. The reduction here amounted to Gdes. 433,925.53.
SContributing to the total reduction of expenditures were the following:
Gdes. 310.000 less were expended for salaries; Gdes. 71,000 less for
supplies; and Gdes. 62,000 less for property. One supplementary credit
only was opened to the Public Health Service. The amount was Gdes.
15,000.00. There were no extraordinary credits.
Expenditures of the Department of the Interior dropped to Gdes.
1,673,877.58, a reduction of Gdes. 293,656.86, from expenditures of the
previous year. Salary cuts and lower expenditures for transportation and






26 BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

for supplies brought about the decrease. Supplementary credits for this
department covering personnel adjustments totalled Gdes. 10,400. An
extraordinary credit of Gdes. 35,000 was opened to the Department of the
Interior to cover expenses incidental to the Presidential Inauguration.
Reduction of salaries was the chief means employed to decrease the
expenditures of the Agricultural Service by Gdes. 305,551.02. One
supplementary credit in the amount of Gdes. 17,000 was opened to this
Service for the purpose of liquidating past due obligations.
Approximately 96 per cent of the amounts expended by the Department
of Justice go to pay salaries of court officials. The decrease (Gdes. 235,-
326.40), therefore, in expenditures of this Department corresponded
roughly to the 20 per cent salary decrease. The amount expended decreased
from Gdes. 1,303,745.58 in 1939-40 to Gdes. 1,068,419.18 in 1940-41.
Expenditures of the Department of Finance increased from Gdes. 622,-
773.10 in 1939-40 to Gdes. 1,055,603.37 in 1940-41. There was the
20 per cent saving on salaries we have noted for other departments
generally, but an increase from Gdes. 388,683.65 to Gdes. 817,332.42
in the amount expended as fixed charges offset the savings and was mainly
responsible for carrying the total expended by this department to a net
amount of Gdes. 432,830.27 above expenditures in the previous year. An
extraordinary credit in the amount of Gdes. 200,000 was opened during
October to cover the unpaid balance of the treasury commission for 1939-
40 and an extraordinary credit in the amount of Gdes. 300,000 was
opened in September to pay the treasury commission for the fiscal year
1940-41. These two credits were the fixed charges referred to above.
Supplementary credits opened during they year included Gdes. 74,550.00
to Article 129. This appropriation was merely a transfer to the Special
Reserve Account of a saving under another article as the result of the recall
of certain diplomats from Europe; a supplementary credit in the sum of
Gdes. 961.44 was opened for material, supplies, etc. of the department;
and a credit of Gdes. 24,849.86 was opened to Article 131 out of which
claims against the government are paid. An extraordinary credit in the
amount of Gdes. 9,526.46 was opened to pay for an issue of stamps
commemorating the third Inter-American Caribbean Congress which met
at Port-au-Prince during the fiscal year.
Expenditures of the Office of the Fiscal Representative and the Internal
Revenue Service were next in amount. They will be dealt with in the
succeeding subsections.
The Department of Foreign Relations increased expenditures from Gdes.
879,773.37 in the previous year to Gdes. 959,262.82. Here again salary
cuts figured, (the salaries of diplomats were cut 10 per cent and other
salaries of the Department, 20 per cent) but supplementary credits carried
expenditures to a higher level than in the preceding year. Supplementary







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


credits totalling Gdes. 140,800 were opened to Article 61 which covers
diplomatic missions; additional amounts totalling Gdes. 7,500 were opened
in Article 86 to cover official receptions; Gdes. 18,000 were appropriated
to cover the cost of foreign telegrams; Gdes. 1,200 were appropriated for
supplies; and additional credits totalling Gdes. 68,382 were opened to
cover expenses in connection with the Inter-American Caribbean Congress.
One extraordinary credit in the amount of Gdes. 6,500 was opened to the
Department of Foreign Relations to cover certain unforeseen administrative
expenditures.
Expenditures of the Department of Religion are classified mainly as
salaries and wages. The total dropped from Gdes. 406,145.43 in the
previous year to Gdes. 331,706.99 for the year under review.
Department of Commerce expenditures did not register the average
percentage decline. Post Office expenditures are included in expenditures of
the Department of Commerce. Fixed contractual charges for maritime
transportation of the mails make up a substantial part of the total. Salaries
of postal employees were cut the usual 20 per cent. A supplementary
credit in the amount of Gdes. 20,000 was opened to the Department of
Commerce for the purchase of mail bags. Two more supplementary
credits for the purchase of supplies were opened, one in the amount of
Gdes. 263.78, the other in the sum of Gdes. 9,651.31.
Expenditures of the Department of Agriculture and Labor dropped from
Gdes. 59,108.06 in the previous year to Gdes. 45,862.30 in 1940-41. A
supplementary credit in the sum of Gdes. 1,200 for the purchase of
supplies, and an extraordinary credit in the sum of Gdes. 1,500 to cover
cost of an investigation into labor conditions in private agricultural enter-
prises were the only increases over ordinary appropriations accorded this
department during the fiscal year.
The Department of Public Works, largely through salary cuts, reduced
expenditures from Gdes. 34,974.36 to Gdes. 28,747.59.
International Institutions has no payroll, appropriations covering only
the amounts necessary to meet the payments of Haiti's proportionate share
in the expenses of various international associations of which Haiti is a
member, or to which Haiti subscribes. Discontinuance of payments to the
League of Nations in 1940-41 was, in large measure, responsible for the
Gdes. 47,462.30 reduction in the amount expended under this heading to
the sum of Gdes. 27,700.00.
Table 41 gives a functional classification of expenditures for the fiscal
year and shows the percentage of total expended on each function. Included
in this table are all disbursements of the Government with the exception of
trust fund repayments, or payments from revolving funds in short, the
non-fiscal accounts for which only the net is shown. In the year under
review, the net payments from non-fiscal accounts other than the Public

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Works Contract amounted to Gdes. 365,364.63. This amount, together
with expenditures under the Public Works Contract and all expenditures
from revenue, makes up the total disbursements by the Government. Thi
amount was Gdes. 33,184,887.32 for the fiscal year. In the previous yeai
total disbursements of the Government had been Gdes. 37,974,137.62
Of the total disbursements, 21.86 per cent (Gdes. 7,253,698.44) wa
expended under the Public Works Contract. The next highest percentage
of the total was expended by the Garde d'Haiti. The amount (Gdes
6,404,947.42) was 19.30 per cent as compared with 19.66 per cent o:
the total expended by the Garde d'Haiti in the previous year. Amount
expended for educational purposes (Gdes. 3,137,551.25) represented 9.4!
per cent of the total as compared with 9.74 per cent in the previous year
The percentage of the total expended on the public debt was 9.67 ii
comparison with 8.15 in the previous year. The amount spent on public
health decreased from 6.79 per cent to 6.43 per cent. The percentage of th
total absorbed by financial administration was 8.13 against 5.82 in th
previous year. The percentage of the total expended in carrying out th
legislative and judicial functions dropped from 5.90 per cent to 5.56 pe
cent.
In regard to the larger percentages of total disbursements for public deb
and financial administration it should be pointed out that the public deb
has been increasing and interest charges are, for this reason, becoming
heavier. The increase in the percentage for financial administration i
explained, in part, by the fact that all of the treasury commission for 1940
41 was paid during the year and in addition thereto most of the treasury
commission for 1939-40. For this reason the percentage was unusual
high. There should be a decline in 1941-42.

Customs Administration
Until September 30, 1941, expenses of the Customs Service were pai,
out of the operating fund of the Fiscal Representative. The fund consiste
of five per cent of customs receipts. At the beginning of the fiscal yeal
October 1, 1940, there was a balance of Gdes. 105,802.07 in the fund
Five per cent of customs receipts during the fiscal year amounted to Gdei
1,073,321.92 bringing the total availabilities to Gdes. 1,179,123.99
Expenditures were Gdes. 1,009,714.15 leaving a balance of Gdes. 169,
409.84 in the fund at September 30, 1941.
In all previous years (except 1939-40) the commission amounting t
one per cent of customs revenues, contractually payable by the Governmel
to the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti has been paid, in whol
or in part, from the balance in the five per cent fund as of the close of eac
fiscal year. Nothing was paid on the 1939-40 commission from the fiv
per cent fund during that fiscal year. However, a part amounting to Gde!





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


S47,540.46 of the commission due for the fiscal year 1939-40 was paid
from the fund during 1940-41, and this is the amount which is carried
in the tables as fixed charges for the year under review. No part of the
commission due for treasury service during 1940-41 was paid from the
five per cent fund.
Expenses of the Fiscal Representative's Office classified by objects of
'expenditures in 1940-41 and in the preceding year were as follows:

S From the foregoing table it will be noted that expenditures for admi-
Snistration, for repairs and maintenance, and for acquisition of property all
increased while expenditures for customs operation declined. In no case
Were the de reases or increases striking. Fixed charges include only that
part of the bank commission for the treasury service during 1939-40 which
was paid from the five per cent fund during 1940-41.
Expenses of administration and operation absorbed 93.83 per cent of the
total and may be broken down into the following items:

The decline in transportation costs, as between the two years, is largely

unusually heavy in 1939-40.

The increase which calls for explanation was in the salaries and wages
classification.
Salaries of the employees of the customs service were cut ten per cent
during the year and under these conditions the total expended as salaries
would normally have shown a substantial decrease. The explanation of the
rise lies in payments of accumulated leave and bonuses on separation from
the service. The Office of the Fiscal Representative was closed on September
30, 1941. The Regulations provided that leave might be accumulated for
two years, or longer with special permission. There was a sufficient amount
in the five per cent fund to pay all accumulated leave in full, and, on
September 30, 1941, therefore, all valid accumulations of leave beyond that
accruing for one year's service were paid from this Fund to the employees
who remained in the service. To those American employees who left the
service without prejudice as a result of the closing of the Fiscal Represen-
tative's Office, nine months salary was paid as bonus.
The money remaining in the Five Per Cent Fund was transferred to the
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti by virtue of Article II of the
Accord of September 13, 1941, when the Accord became effective on
October 1, 1941. The amount was Gdes. 169,409.84, which sum has
since served to finance payment of certain of the bonuses described above,
any unused balance remaining to form the nucleus of a Pension Fund.

Internal Revenue Service
The Operating Fund of the Internal Revenue Service is derived from an
allowance of 10 per cent of all internal revenue collected and 15 per cent
of the communal taxes collected by the Internal Revenue Service. During
the fiscal year, ten per cent of internal revenues amounted to Gdes. 487,-
892.60, and 15 per cent of those communal revenues collected by the
Internal Revenue Service amounted to Gdes. 222,959.99. Other accruals
to the Fund of the Internal Revenue Service amounting to Gdes. 6,125.79
brought the total to Gdes. 716,978.38.
Expenditures of the Internal Revenue Service were as follows:
Gourdes
Salaries and wages.................................. 527,633.47
Supplies and materials.............................. 89,165.68
Transportation ........................................ 77,332.39

Internal Revenue Inspection Service
The Internal Revenue Inspection Service under the Agreement of August
7, 1933, between the Government of the United States and the Government





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


2 of Haiti had the duty of inspecting the collection of internal revenues. To
carry out this duty the Service could expend an amount not to exceed five
I per cent of internal revenue receipts.
Expenditures of the Internal Revenue Inspection Service during each of
i the last two years have been:
1940-41 1939-40
Gourdes Gourdes
Salaries .................................... 128,612.28 108,495.24

M miscellaneous ........................ 1,246.08 1,746.00
Total.............................. 219,796-35 209,338.36

The amount charged to salaries increased for the same reason that
salaries paid out of the five per cent fund increased, namely, the payment
of accumulated leave in excess of one year's accumulation when the Office
of the Fiscal Representative ceased to exist. Expenditures from the Inspec-
tion Service Fund in commutation of accumulated leave amounted to Gdes.
24,782.28.
Five per cent of internal revenues during 1940-41 amounted to Gdes.
243,946.30. Expenditures of the Inspection Service were Gdes. 219,-
796.35 leaving a surplus of Gdes. 24,149.95. However there was a deficit
of Gdes. 757.66 in the operating fund of the Internal Revenue Service.
This left a net surplus of the two Services combined, of Gdes. 23,392.29.
This amount was turned over to the Banque Nationale de la Republique
d'Haiti through the operation of the Accord of September 13, 1941.


Public Works Program

A contract was entered into, July 6, 1938, between the Haitian Govern-
ment and the J. G. White Engineering Corporation under which the
Engineering Corporation undertook to execute, in Haiti, a program of
public works over a period of three to four years and to an extent of
approximately twenty-five million gourdes. The public works undertaken
were of a productive nature and included roads, bridges, wharves, drainage
canals, irrigation systems, projects of agricultural development, and other
similar projects.
Expenditures under the contract have been:

In the last Annual Report, the progress of 113 projects undertaken u
until September 30, 1940 was reviewed. During the past year, completion
of these projects has been actively pursued. Gdes. 6,640,885.70 we:
expended during the fiscal year 1940-41 on the projects described in tl
last report.
Because of the approaching termination of the contract and consequei
reduction of available funds, a very limited number of new projects hai
been started. Expenditures on the new projects undertaken during the ye;

Artibonite road. Another project was set up to cover the use of grade
working on existing roads. Improvement of the 21 kilometers of mai
highway between Mont-Rouis and St-Marc was started. This proje
includes construction of one new bridge, repairs to other bridges, an
installation of new culverts. A shelter for tourists was constructed adjacel
to the wharf at Port-au-Prince.
The approximate cost of construction and Engineering Projects for tl

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


S The figures given above for Series A and C bonds are net amounts, after
deduction of sums remaining in the sinking funds of each bond issue at
September 30, 1941. These unapplied amounts were:
Gourdes
Series A sinking fund.................................. 3,771.80
Series C sinking fund.................................. 297.65
Total .................................................. 4,069.45

Although no budgetary allocations were made during the fiscal year for
amortization of Series A and Series C bonds, the net amount of bonds
outstanding at the end of the fiscal year was slightly less than a year ago
because of the application, to amortization, of monies remaining in the
Sinking Fund at September 30, 1940.
Total expenditures from revenues for service of the public debt amounted
to Gdes. 3,210,052.94 during the fiscal year. Expenditures for interest,
amortization, and handling charges on Series A bonds, Series C bonds, and
the Public Works Contract were, respectively:
Series A Series C Public Works Contract
Gourdes Gourdes Gourdes
Interest ....................... 2,053,350.00 330,465.40 794,983.64

2,066,407.91 332,375.44 811,269.59

While the Executive Agreement of August 7, 1933 was in effect, au-
thority for payments of amortization and interest on Series A and C bonds
was derived from Article XI of that Agreement, which provided for the
setting aside and crediting to the Fiscal Representative of the amounts need-
'ed for payments connected with execution of the loan contracts. Until
1937 this meant setting aside the amounts necessary to pay full interest,
and amortization in accordance with the loan schedules. Because, since
1937, low revenues have made full contractual amortization payments
impossible, agreements supplementary to Article XI of the Executive
Agreement of August 7, 1933 regulating service of the bonds, have been
entered into, from year to year, between the two governments. These
agreements, taking into consideration the position of the Haitian Treasury
and anticipated revenues, have been made each year after consultation with
the Foreign Bondholders Protective Council, and have been effective for one
year only.
The supplementary agreement which covered service of the loans during
1940-41 was signed September 27, 1940 and provided that the payments
to be made during the fiscal period 1940-1941 should consist of the
amounts necessary to pay the interest on all outstanding bonds issued under
the Loan Contracts of October 6, 1922 and May 26, 1925. There was a
provision for amortization payments only if revenue receipts should exceed




BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


the amount carried in the budget of 1938-39, which was Gdes. 29,189,-
000. Since revenue receipts were Gdes. 26,929,882.83, there were nc
amounts set aside for amortization under this clause during the fiscal year.
Because it did not appear in the early part of the fiscal year that govern-
ment revenues would be sufficient to meet full interest payments on the
public debt, another Supplementary Executive Agreement was signed
February 13, 1941, which further modified the Executive Agreement of
August 7, 1933 and the Supplementary Agreement of September 27, 1940.
This Agreement of February 13, 1941 provided that the sums to be set
aside during the fiscal year 1940-41 would be the amounts needed to pay
two-thirds of the amount due and payable on the coupons maturing April
1, 1941, and October 1, 1941 on all outstanding bonds issued under the
loan contracts of October 6, 1922, and May 26, 1925.
Notices to holders of Series A and holders of Series C bonds were
accordingly published March 4th, inviting the bondholders to present their
April 1st coupons, receive 66 2/3 per cent of the interest due and to have
such payment stamped on their coupons.
Later in the fiscal year revenue receipts improved and in August the
government decided to place in the hands of the Fiscal Agent sufficient
funds to pay, in September, the portion of the interest on the April 1,
1941 coupons which had been postponed and to make full payment of the
October 1, 1941 coupons. The funds were transferred to the Fiscal Agent,
and notice to the bondholders to present their coupons and receive the
postponed interest was published.
Series A bonds were quoted at 68 during the first month of the fiscal
year. They were quoted only slightly lower than this as late as February,
but dropped rapidly during the month of March and reached the low for
the year 38 1/2 April 1st, the date on which the semi-annual interest
was due and postponed in part. Bond prices recovered rapidly, however,
and during the latter part of the same month Series A bonds were quoted
at 63, following which there was a decline to 50. During the next three
months the price range was 55 to 56. When the interest postponed from
April 1st was paid during September a sharp rise during that month carried
the quotations for Series A bonds to 70, the high for the year.
A new Executive Agreement to cover service of the public debt during
the fiscal year 1941-42 was entered into September 30, 1941. This Accord
extends the provisions of the Executive Agreement of September 27, 1940,
discussed above. There are two exceptions: all the receipts of the Haitian
Government are to be deposited without deduction at the Banque Nationale
de la Republique d'Ha'iti and the Bank shall make the payments provided
for by the loan contracts of 1922 and 1925 in accordance with the proce-
dure outlined in Article VI of the Executive Agreement of September 13,
1941;* and secondly, the Government of the Republic of Haiti agrees to

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


pay Gdes. 100,000 during the period October 1, 1941 to September 30,
1942, inclusive, on account of the amounts required to be paid under the
loan contracts of October 6, 1922 and May 26, 1925 for the amortization
of the loans of 1922 and 1923.

The Budget
Treasury reserves have been low in recent years, and the budget of
expenditures has, of necessity, been closely limited to prospective revenues.
The budget in 1939-40 had authorized expenditures of Gdes. 29,188,-
991.81. This amount subsequently had to be reduced by cancellations of
appropriations and parts of appropriations. Revenues for 1940-41 were
estimated at Gdes. 25,200,000 and the budget of expenditures was brought
down to Gdes. 25,193,363.25. Export products, however, commanded
better prices than had been anticipated and, as a result, revenues during the
year reached Gdes. 26,929,882.83, an amount Gdes. 1,729,882.83 above
the estimate.
Supplementary and extraordinary credits in excess of cancellations carried
expenditures in 1940-41 to Gdes. 25,565,824.25 and still left a larger
operating surplus than any recorded since 1932-33. Under the chapter on
expenditures the various reductions effected in order to bring expenditures
down to the level considered necessary have been described in detail.
After a survey of the sources of revenue for 1941-42 the Ways and
Means were estimated at Gdes. 27,337,000, and a budget of expenditures
was adopted in the amount of Gdes. 27,336,814.26. The reason for the
increase was that, leaving aside the uncertainty due to war conditions,
foreign trade prospects were brighter because of rising prices for Haitian
export products and consequent generally increasing purchasing power. The
Budget for 1941-42, due to changes in customs and financial adminis-
tration, was not promulgated until after the beginning of the new fiscal
year. It was published in the Moniteur of October 20, 1941.
The following table shows the original allocation of funds among the
various budgetary chapters for 1939-40, 1940-41, and 1941-42, i. e. for
the year under review compared with the immediately preceding fiscal year
and the coming fiscal year:

Banking and Currency

The two banking institutions doing business in Haiti reported average
loans and discounts totalling Gdes. 5,735,578.29 during 1940-41. The
corresponding average in 1939-40 was Gdes. 6,537,860.83.
Bank deposits decreased in amount from the previous year. Exclusive of
government accounts, deposits averaged Gdes. 13,762,277.36 compared
with an average of Gdes. 14,047,562.18 during 1939-40.
The amount of gourde notes and subsidiary coins in circulation on
September 30, 1941 and on the same date in 1940 was:
Sept. 30, 1941 Sept. 30, 1940
Gourdes Gourdes

Subsidiary currency.................... 4,224,047.50 3,658,889.52*
14,727,027.50 11.587,121.52*

In addition to the above amount it is estimated that approximately
Gdes. 2.500,000 in United States currency were in circulation in Haiti on
September 30, 1940. Re-exportation of U.S. currency was negligible
during the fiscal year under review.
Inclusive of United States dollars, total currency in circulation, at the
end of each of the past ten years, has been estimated as follows:

September 30, 1940.............................................. 16,087,122 *
September 30, 1941.............................................. 17,227,027

Table 52 of this Report presents the circulation of gourde bank notes
by months. Note circulation during the year did not follow the usual
pattern. In fact, compared with previous averages results were almost
diametrically opposite to what had, theretofore, been well defined trends.
It has been usual, in years past, for note circulation to reach its peak in
March or a month close to March and to recede thereafter until August,
then, with a slight upturn in September, to begin another climb towards
the highest point, which generally followed in a winter or early spring
month. During the year under review, the low point in note circulation
was reached in January. There was a steady increase through every
succeeding month and the culmination for the year was reached in
September.

* Correction of previously published figures.





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The volume of note circulation follows the volume of business trans-
actions. The change we have just remarked upon in note circulation was
due, in large part, to the seasonal change in business activity which has
been taking place in the last few years. In former years, Haitian coffee with
a minimum of drying and aging, was sold in European markets soon after
the harvest season, with the result that the greatest monthly volume of
business came about March. The exportation of coffee to the American
market has required a change in preparation and coffee is shipped later in
the fiscal year. Furthermore, the seasonal fluctuations in banana shipments
favor the summer and early fall months. In addition to this change in
seasonal fluctuations there was considerable evidence that bank notes were
being hoarded during the latter months of the year.
In July 1941 and succeeding months note circulation exceeded Gdes.
10,000,000. This was the first time that note circulation had been as
high as Gdes. 10,000,000 since 1929-30. While the increase reflected a
seasonal change in business activity, it is thought that the present high level
of bank notes in circulation is due, primarily, to the hoarding referred to
above.

Supplies
The Bureau of Supplies purchases office supplies and office equipment
for every Department and Service of the Government which avails itself
of this service. Supply stocks are carried to meet the normal demand for
stationery needs of the Government services, i.e. all requirements of the
various qualities and kinds of paper, ink, pencils, mimeograph supplies,
record books, ledgers, etc. used throughout the Government offices. Such
office supplies and equipment as typewriters and ribbons, adding machines,
filing cabinets, etc., are also carried in stock. Stock cards show that
approximately 500 separate items are carried. Paper is imported in bulk
and cut on the Seybold machine of the Bureau to meet the varied require-
ments of the Government.
In addition to stationery, office supplies, and equipment, a great many
miscellaneous requirements of various branches of the Government are
taken care of through the Bureau of Supplies. The Post Office orders such
supplies as metal cancelling and date stamps, tags, seals, etc., through the
Bureau. The Internal Revenue Service, in addition to its ordinary supplies,
orders revenue stamps, postage stamps, automobile license plates and many
other special requirements through the Bureau of Supplies. Supplies for the
State Print Shop including printing ink, newsprint, metal type, composition
rollers, parts for linotype machines, etchings, and miscellaneous printers'
requirements are likewise ordered through the Bureau of Supplies. These
are but a few of the many articles handled through the Bureau and are
examples to illustrate the scope of its activities.





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


The Bureau is charged with supplying printed government forms. All
customs and internal revenue forms in current use are printed under super-
vision of the Bureau and kept in stock.
The Bureau is financed from a Revolving Fund set up as a non-fiscal
account. When the Bureau was first organized a credit was opened to it.
The expenses of operating the Bureau are covered by a charge of 10%
added to the cost price of such imported articles as are stocked by the
Bureau. On local purchases and on special orders where the merchandise is
not placed in stock but delivered to the purchaser more or less immediately,
the handling charge is 2% or 5% depending upon the size of the order.
Operating on this basis the Bureau has repaid the original credit and has
built up a surplus which is largely in the form of merchandise in stock.
At the end of the last fiscal year, merchandise in stock was valued at Gdes.
170,643.74 (out of total assets of the Bureau amounting to Gdes. 207,-
919.10) The surplus was Gdes. 187,182.59. During the year, new supplies
to the extent of Gdes. 235,677.66 were purchased. Sales amounted to Gdes.
258,480.47. As a result of the year's operations the surplus of the Bureau
of Supplies was increased from Gdes. 187,182.59 at the beginning of the
fiscal year, to Gdes. 190,703.35 at the end.
Balance sheets and statements of profit and loss are prepared monthly
and annually. Table 50 of this report sets forth a profit and loss statement
for the fiscal years 1939-40 and 1940-41. Table 51 presents the balance
sheet as of September 30, 1940, and as of September 30,1941.

Soci&t6 Haitiano-AmBricaine de DBveloppement Agricole (SHADA)
No review of economic conditions in Haiti during the fiscal year ended
September 30, 1941, would be complete without mention of the Societe
Haitiano-Americaine de Developpement Agricole, commonly known as
SHADA, which began operations during the course of that year.
Organized with a view to developing Haitian agricultural resources on
a sound basis, the Societ6 Haitiano-Americaine de Developpement Agricole
began operations, officially, on August 16, 1941, after a period of nearly
a year spent in planning and preparation on the parts of the Governments
of Haiti and the United States.
SHADA, as at present organized, includes three operating divisions and
the Port-au-Prince office employing a grand total of nearly 3,000 persons.
The Port-au-Prince office is concerned primarily with the overall admi-
nistration of the SocietY's work and keeps in close touch with the operating
divisions.
Through its Research Division, the Societe Haitiano-Americaine de D&-
veloppement Agricole expects to find more new and profitable crops for
Haiti and to determine the best and most profitable ways in which to grow
and process them.







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Plans are being made for the development of an embroidery industry in
Haiti. The Societe has made arrangements with an outlet in New York
and will soon begin manufacturing on a sizeable scale. It is expected that
this part of the SocietY's work will grow steadily as fast as skilled workers
can be trained.
The major purpose of the Societe Haitiano-Americaine de Developpe-
ment Agricole is to create new industries and to improve the preparation of
existing products so that they can command a higher price on the world
markets. In this way it is expected that the income of the country can be
raised and with it the living standard of the people.
One of the major responsibilities of the Societe is the training of Haitian
technicians, supervisors, clerks and other workers. To this end more than
one hundred young Haitian employees are now being trained for higher
positions in the years to come and every day new persons are given
opportunities of extending their knowledge and usefulness to themselves,
to the Societe Haitiano-Americaine de Developpement Agricole and to
Haiti.

Conclusion

The fiscal year reviewed in this report was the most difficult, from a
financial point of view, that Haiti has experienced in several decades.
The difficulties, however, were not of sudden development. Before the
year began, it was apparent from a survey of foreign trade possibilities what
difficulties would be encountered. It was apparent that to bring expendi-
tures into line with revenues in sight, the expenditure budget would have
to be drastically reduced; and this, despite the fact that expenditures had
previously been cut to the amount deemed necessary to maintain unimpaired
the essential services of the Government.
In view of previous economies and decreases in the budget, it appeared
to the Government that the only recourse left for the sweeping reduction
necessary, was to cut the salaries of employees. It should be recalled in this
connection that for several years, economies had already been effected at the
expense of employees, through contraction of government activities, salary
decreases, postponed increases, and through the elimination of positions,
where expedient, with additional work falling upon those employees
remaining. Nevertheless, to balance the budget, it was impossible to envisage
paying the great majority of government employees more than 80 per cent
of their basic salaries.
Even after this and other reductions had been made, it became necessary,
during the year, to seek a postponement of interest payments on the 1922
and 1923 bonds. This was the first time since the bonds had been issued
that full interest payments could not be made on the dates due.







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


It so happened that during the last quarter of the year, there was an
unexpected increase in foreign trade and in government revenues. The
improvement in foreign trade was very quickly reflected in government
revenues. The increase, together with economies effected, was sufficient to
enable the Government to make provision for the payment of bond interest
postponed from April, and to leave a surplus in the Treasury, which, while
it was by no means excessive, due regard being had to the instability of
revenues based on foreign trade, still was better than any recorded in recent
years.
The year's results, therefore, in view of all the circumstances, were not
wholly as unsatisfactory as it appeared for a time they would be. It should
be added, however, that no fiscal year can be considered entirely satisfactory
until such time as full amortization payments on the bonded debt can be
made without such a resulting drain upon the resources of the country as to
impair the essential functions of the Government. Viewed in this light and
taking into account the uncertainties of present world conditions, conclu-
sions based on the trade improvement noted during the closing months of
the fiscal year 1940-41 must, obviously, be drawn with reservations.

The National Bank of the Republic of Haiti, as the sole depository of
all revenues as defined in Article II, shall have the power and duty of
receiving in the first instance all the receipts of the Government and all
payments made in favor thereof, and to set aside in preference to any other

payments required by the loan contracts.
During the first ten days of each calendar month the representative of
the holders of the bonds of 1922 and 1923 who shall be, in accordance

The annual interest charges and the amounts of amortization shall be
computed and effected in accordance with the loan contracts dated October
6, 1922, and of May 26, 1925, with the National City Company and the
National City Bank of New York, authorized by the Haitian Law of June
26, 1922, as modified by the Accord signed at Port-au-Prince by the

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT-APPENDICES 49

of 1/12 of the annual amount agreed upon between the Government of
Haiti and the National Bank of the Republic of Haiti as compensation for
the services of the said Bank, or in the absence of any such agreement, 1/12
of the annual amount last agreed upon. After setting aside those funds
which are considered necessary by the Board of Directors of the National
Bank of the Republic of Haiti to establish appropriate reserves during a
given fiscal year in anticipation of seasonal variations in revenues and
expenditures, to make the payments envisaged in Articles VI and VIII
hereof, and for other similar purposes, any surplus funds will be held at the
disposal of the Government of Haiti for necessary public expenditures in
accordance with the approved budget.

ARTICLE VII
The Government of the Republic of Haiti declares that the interest and
amortization service of the bonds of the external debt of 1922 and 1923
constitute an irrevocable first lien upon all its revenues as defined in Article
II. It is understood that the communal revenues specified in Article II shall
not be included in the provisions of this clause.
Until the complete amortization of the whole amount of the bonds of
the external debt of 1922 and 1923 of the Government of Haiti, the public
debt of the Republic of Haiti shall not be increased except by previous
agreement between the Governments of the United States of America and
the Republic of Haiti.

ARTICLE VIII
