BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

ANNUAL REPORT

of the

FISCAL DEPARTMENT

covering the fiscal year

OCTOBER, 1941-SEPTEMBER, 1942

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, December 10. 1942.
To the
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE
BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

Sirs:
There is submitted herewith the Annual Report of the Banque Nationale
de la Republique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department, for the fiscal year ended
September 30, 1942. As in the preparation of previous reports of this
character, material of general economic interest, not necessarily directly
related to the work of the Fiscal Department, has" been included. It is
believed that this practice increases the usefulness of these Reports as a source
of information on economic conditions in Haiti.
The fiscal year ended September 30, 1942, was, for Haiti, one of gradual
adjustment to war conditions. It so happened that the first year of war
coincided with the first year of operation of a reorganized fiscal adminis-
tration under the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique d'Haiti. Thus, new
problems of an extraordinary character were added to the usual difficulties
involved in reorganization and the setting in motion of new administrative
processes.
On the first day of October 1941, the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique
d'Haiti, in conformity with the provisions of the Executive Agreement
signed at Washington on September 13, 1941, took over the functions
theretofore exercised by the Office of the Fiscal Representative.
Prices had been rising for some months previously. It appeared that
satisfactory arrangements for disposing of Haitian crops and for transport-
ing them to markets in the Western Hemisphere could be made. There
was, currently, some talk of the possible diversion to other areas of ships
normally serving Haitian trade, but no undue alarm was felt on this score.
Difficulties encountered a year or so earlier, as a result both of the outbreak






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


of war in Europe with consequent disruption of normal trade processes
and of the'extremely low prices for Haitian coffee and other crops prevail-
ing at that time were thought to be definitely over. The low point of
depression lay behind; prices were rising and the outlook, although necessa-
rily uncertain was, on the whole, relatively bright. The new Board of
Directors of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti took office on
October 1, 1941, in a general atmosphere of optimism and of cautious
confidence regarding the future.
Two months later, on December 7, came the Japanese attack on Pearl
Harbor and the almost immediate declaration of war by the United States
on Japan and the Axis Powers.
On December 8, by virtue of special authority derived from the Perma-
nent,Committee of the National Assembly, war was declared on Japan by
decree of the President of Haiti. This action was followed on December
12th by similar declarations of war against the Axis Powers.
Succeeding months were marked by increasing difficulties not only in
transporting Haitian products to market but also in obtaining supplies
from abroad. In order to understand the full gravity for Haiti of the dis-
ruption, in 1942, :of regular sea transport services, it seems necessary to
recall here, at the outset, that the country is preponderantly dependent upon
customs revenues. In the fiscal year just ended, over 75.6 per cent of
government receipts was derived from duties on imports and exports but
the corresponding figure for 1940-41 was 79.6 and in earlier years, the
figure often ran as high as 80 or even 90 per cent and over.
In addition to difficulties arising out of the shipping shortage, the effect
was felt in 'Haiti during the first months of war, of the adjustment of the
United States to a new basis of war economy. Haitian importers found
that they could no longer place orders freely in the United States. New
formalities involved in the application of priorities and quotas had to be
fulfilled. Furthermore, the Haitian Government itself instituted new sys-
tems for allocating and rationing the commodities received from abroad.
As a result of these various developments, trade came almost to a stand-
still, and it seemed for a time as though the chief sources of Haitian revenue
might dry up entirely.
Before many weeks of war had passed, it became evident that new
methods would have to be devised and special arrangements made in order
to enable the country to ride out the storm.
Faced with so vital a problem, the President of Haiti determined to go
himself to Washington in order to discuss there, with the appropriate
authorities, ways and means of meeting the emergency.
Proceeding to Washington, by air, in March, President Lescot and his
associates immediately entered into conversations extending over a period
of several weeks. As a result of these Meetings, a Memorandum was made





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


public which, in addition to bearing witness to a complete meeting of
minds, sketched, in broad outline, bases for effective practical collaboration
between the two Governments.
Among the subjects covered in the Memorandum were the disposal of
Haitian cotton crops for the duration of the war; the extension by the
Export-Import Bank of a line of credit through the Banque Nationale de
la Ripublique d'Ha'ti; agricultural development and the handling of
surpluses; the furnishing, by the United States, of material and other assis-
tance of a military and naval character.
The seed sown at these Conferences in Washington in the Spring of
1942 was to bear fruit over a period of many months. In September, an
Agreement was signed by the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique d'Haiti
and the Export-Import Bank of Washington. providing for the extension
of credit to assist in the stabilization of Haitian finances at present levels
of expenditures and in the maintenance of a supply of dollar exchange
essential to Haitian economy., Be it noted, in passing that, up to the end of
the fiscal year, use of the credit facilities extended proved to be unnecessary,
the Government having been able to meet its essential needs out of revenues
and reserves. As time passes and new agreements are signed relating to
specific aspects of Haitian agricultural, commercial and financial develop-
ment, it seems likely that the effects of the decisions reached at Washington
in March 1942 will be felt over a period of many years.

Trade Difficulties Increase
During the latter half of the fiscal year ended September 30, 1942,
Haiti lived, so to speak, from hand to mouth. Sea transport services oper-
ated with great irregularity as a result both of enemy submarine activity
and of the diversion, by the United States Government, of merchant ships
to war purposes. For weeks on end it might be that no ship touched at
Haitian ports. Then several arrivals might coincide. During the intervals
between arrivals, shortages of one commodity or another might develop in
the local market. It should be made of record that at no time during the
fiscal year ended September 30, 1942, was there actual suffering or want
in Haiti directly traceable to war conditions. The fact remains, however,
that the goods finally imported seldom compensated entirely for the short-
ages which had previously developed, and discounting abnormal price vari-
ations in the local market which the authorities did their best to control,
the trend was toward trade stagnation and lowered living standards. At
the same time, customs receipts shrank to record lows.
In connection with the many difficulties which Haitian importers faced
in 1942, it may be pertinent to recall here that the Haitian Government,
although obliged to institute new systems of allocation and rationing of
goods, recognized the unprecedented character of the situation and took





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


steps also to grant certain special facilities to trade. For example, since
there was no longer any certainty regarding the receipt of documents, the
usual fines for delayed customs declarations became, in certain instances,
clearly inequitable, and a law was drafted providing for the waiving of
such fines under certain conditions. Furthermore, a new ruling was es-
tablished whereby storage charges for a period up to one month might be
waived on goods declared in bond. These and other measures of the same
general character assisted local importers in tiding their businesses over an
unusually difficult period.
It was stated above that at no time in 1942 did Haiti experience actual
suffering or want on account of war conditions. It should be added that
at no time was there any lack of public confidence that the situation would
ultimately right itself. That this was so was due not only to the fact that
Haiti's danger was recognized at Washington and that every effort was
made to supply the tonnage required at least to meet Haiti's minimum
needs and that Haiti was at all times confident that this tonnage would,
eventually, be supplied; but also to the psychological effect of the agree-
ments in principle reached during President Lescot's visit to Washington,
and to constructive action resulting therefrom taken in the agricultural and
other fields. Under the latter heading, the arrival in Haiti in May 1942 of
an American Sanitary Mission-the purpose and work of which group
are treated more fully elsewhere in this Report-is a case in point.
As the fiscal year drew to its close, the outlook appeared to be clearing.
Haiti had more or less adjusted itself to the new conditions of war economy.
There seemed to be reason to hope that shipping services would, in the
future, tend to become more rather than less, regular. Projects for agricul-
tural development of one sort or another were under way. Notable among
these was the plan for the cultivation on an area of 100,000 acres or almost
33,000 �carreaux, of land of cryptostegia, commonly know locally as
sCorne a Cabrit>, the latex of which produces a rubber of superior quality.
Negotiations looking to the financing by the United States of the disposal
of the new coffee crop and of previous surpluses were being successfully
concluded. Funds were available for meeting such current monthly budget-
ary deficits as-would occur if adequate shipping services were not maintain-
ed. On the whole, the situation, by comparison with what had been
feared eight months previously, was relatively good. It was difficult to
make any estimate of revenue for the new fiscal year ending September 30,
1943, because the result would depend almost entirely on the provision
of ships to transport Haitian products to overseas markets and to supply
the import trade. Assuming, however, that the necessary ships would be
supplied, there seemed to be no reason to reduce the previous year's estimates
of receipts, nor was there, under the circumstances, any sound basis on
which a lower figure could be calculated. The new Government budget,
therefore, was prepared at practically the same general level of expenditures





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 5

as the budget for 1941-42, and although there had been dark days during
the period just ended, the transition to the new year was once again effect-
ed in an atmosphere of quiet confidence regarding the future.

Government Revenues
Fiscal receipts of the Government from all sources during the fiscal year
ended September 30, 1942, totalled Gdes.* 25,599,255.80. In the previous
fiscal year, total revenues amounted to Gdes. 26,929,882.83.
Government revenues in 1941-42, classified by sources, compared with
those of the previous fiscal period, were as follows:
Sources Receipts
1941-42 1941-42 1940-41 1940-41
Gourdes ' Per cent Gourdes Per cent
Customs:
Imports ............................... 15,712,472.03 61.4 18,355,239.97 68.2
Exports ............................... 3,634,259.70 14.2 3,067,543.58 11.4
Miscellaneous ....................... 47,787.08 0.2 43,654.79 0.2
Internal Revenues................... . 5,337,416.04 20.9 4,878,926.03 18.1
Miscellaneous Government
Receipts ........................ 498,046.61 1.9 361,558.47 1.3
Receipts from Communes............ 369,274.34 1.4 222,959.09 0.8
Total Revenues..................... 25,599,255.80 100.0 26,929,882.83 100.0

From the above percentage columns it will be noted that internal revenue
receipts accounted for a slightly higher percentage of total revenues in
1941-42 than was the case in 1940-41. This was not due so much to an
increase in the yield of the internal revenue taxes as to the fact that customs
receipts, particularly those from imports, were unusually low. Miscella-
neous Government receipts, including those from the Communes, also
gained in importance.

Customs Receipts
Total customs receipts amounted to Gdes. 19,394,518.81. Not since
the drastic deflation which followed immediately upon the short-lived
post-war price rise of 1919-20 had receipts from this source been so low.
When it is remembered that during past years customs revenues have
generally represented form 80 to 90 per cent of total revenues, it will be
realized that any sharp decline in customs duties has an immediate adverse
effect on total collections and the general treasury situation. The relatively
low yield of the import and-export tariffs in 1941-42 was due principally
to the irregularity in the shipping services caused by the war. In other
words, the tonnage of foreign trade, particularly of imports from which

average annual level. In view of the fact that all export duties are based
on weight and since a considerable proportion of imported articles pay
specific rates of duty, it is clear that any reduction in the volume of imports
and exports is immediately reflected in reduced revenues.
The principal sources of import revenues in order of yield and compared
to the yield of the previous year were:

It is interesting to note that some of the sharpest declines in import
duties occurred in connection with articles the export of which from the
United States was either prohibited or restricted because of the war effort.
Gasoline and kerosene, iron and steel products, automobiles and trucks, and
rubber goods may be mentioned in this connection. The volume of import-
ed cotton goods was only slightly less than in 1940-41. The value of such
imports, however, was 36.8% greater than in the previous year. Yet the
duties declined by some Gdes. 450,000, as will be seen from the above
table. Since no change in duty rates occurred in the course of the year, this
decline merits explanation. In recent years considerable quantities of cotton
textiles have been imported from Japan, notwithstanding the application
to Japanese products of the maximum tariff, or 100 per cent more than the
rates applied to goods from countries which fulfilled in their trade with
Haiti, certain conditions which Japan failed to fulfill. In 1940-41 some
315,000 kilos of cotton goods valued at approximately Gdes. 1,000,000
were imported from Japan, while such imports in 1941-42 were insignif-
icant. The fact that practically all 1941-42 imports paid only the mini-
mum tariff rates while a considerable proportion of the 1940-41 imports
were subject to the maximum rates largely accounted for the decline in the
amount of duties paid on cotton goods in 1941-42.





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Export Revenues
Returns form export duties increased from Gdes. 3,067,543.58 in 1940-
41 to Gdes. 3,634,259.70 for the year under review. Export revenues are
principally derived from the specific duties levied on coffee. Coffee shipped
during the year amounted to 18,104,711 kilos, while the duties paid on
the shipments totalled Gdes. 2,905,658. During the prior year, coffee
shipments amounted to 22,641,275 kilos, but yielded only Gdes. 2,516,-
001. During most of the fiscal year 1940-41, the export duty rates on
coffee were reduced by one-third in order that the exporters might be able
to sell to the foreign markets at the low prices which prevailed during that
period. As prices showed improvement toward the end of the fiscal year
ended September 30, 1941, the full rates were restored; and in February
1942, as an extraordinary revenue measure, applicable until the end of the
war, there was established a special export tax of Gdes. 5.00 per bag of 80
kilos of coffee. However, since this special tax was to be applied only to
the 1942-43 and subsequent annual quotas, the yield during the year just
ended was limited to an amount collected on certain advance shipments
authorized under the 1942-43 quota.
Export revenues by sources were as follows in 1941-42 and 1940-41:
1941-42 1940-41
Gourdes Per Cent Gourdes Per Cent

Total ................... 3,634,260 100.00 3,067,543 100.00

It has been remarked that all export duties are collected at specific rates
based on weights or measurements. Sugar and molasses, however, when the
price of these commodities falls below a certain level on the New York
market, are exempt from export duties. When the price rises above this level
the rates increase or decrease with the rise or fall in prices. The sharp increase
in the duty yield of these commodities during the current year reflects better
prices rather than increased volume.
The banana industry has been most adversely affected by the shipping
shortage and by the resulting priority given to other export products. The
duties paid on bananas, as shown in the above table, were collected in the
early months of the fiscal year.
Later on in the year, the export of bananas was almost completely dis-
continued. Although the growing and shipping of bananas on a commer-
cial scale was started in Haiti less than ten years ago, the industry had
developed rapidly to a point where it was one of the principal factors in





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


the country's economic life. It is to be hoped that conditions will soon
again be such as to permit the resumption of activity in this field. It seems
important from the long term point of view, that gains made in the past
should not now be lost.
Since sisal pays a relatively low rate of duty, the revenues derived directly
from this industry in the form of export duties are not important. However,
the industry through the employment of thousands of laborers and through
its other investments in the country holds an important place in the na-
tional economy.

Internal Revenues
Internal revenue collections in 1941-42 were higher than they have been
in any previous year, since creation of the Service in 1924, except for 1928-
29 and 1929-30. The favorable showing in 1941-42 was due in some
part to revision of tax laws, but it is believed that a more strict application
of the revenue laws played a considerable part in the increase.
Receipts from all internal revenue sources totalled Gdes. 5,337,416.04
during the fiscal year. In the preceding year, these receipts amounted to
Gdes. 4,878,926.03.
Excise taxes, amounting to Gdes. 1,242,302.90, represented 23.3 per
cent of total internal revenues. The excise group includes alcohol, tobacco
products, vegetable oils, lard substitutes and soap. The tax on cigarettes
totalling Gdes. 590,534.48 represented almost half of all excises.
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 1942 public service charges
accounted for 20.5 per cent of total internal revenues. In addition to the
Post-Office, the Government owns and operates the telephone and telegraph
system, the urban hydraulic systems and, for the most part, the rural
irrigation systems;
The following table shows the receipts from and expenditures by these
services during the fiscal year 1941-42:

It is interesting to note that the income tax was the principal source of
internal revenue during the year 1941-42. The relatively favorable
showing under this heading, collections being higher than in any year
since 1929-30, was due to the increase in the rates provided for by new
legislation as well as to the fact that local firms producing and exporting
agricultural products received comparatively high prices for their products
and showed greater profits.

The next most important source of internal revenue was the excise on
cigarettes which increased some Gdes. 135,000 over the preceding year.
Since the rates did not increase in the course of the year, it is apparent that
the consumption of cigarettes is increasing. Import statistics indicate that
the purchase of foreign cigarettes declined by 9 per cent from the previous
year. It is, therefore, evident that the local cigarette industry is becoming
more important.

The category of internal revenue which showed the sharpest decline was
the excise on locally produced oil derived from cotton seeds. This decline,
amounting to 7 per cent, as well as the decline of about 50 per cent in
the, amount of lard and lard substitutes imported from abroad, when
comparison is made with the statistics of the previous year, would seem
to indicate a sharp reduction in the consumption of fats. However, the
extent of this reduction if, in fact, there was a reduction, is not nearly so
great as would be indicated by the foreign trade and revenue statistics,





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


since it is well known that the local meat and lard production has
increased considerably. Furthermore, the production of cocoanut oil and
peanut oil has been encouraged through tax exemption.

Miscellaneous Receipts
Miscellaneous receipts of the Government totalled Gdes. 498,046.61
in 1941-42 compared with Gdes. 361,558.47 in 1940-41. These receipts
may be classified as follows:
Gourdes
Communal contributions.......................... 255,931.82
Returns on investments........................... 111,506.30
Conversion of francs.......................... .. 17,516.60
Miscellaneous ........................................ 113,091.89
Total ................................ ........ 498,046.61

Since 1940-41, the Communes contribute 10 per cent of their gross
revenues to the Public Treasury. This contribution is designed to aid the
Government during the period of comparatively low revenues and to
compensate the Treasury in part for the expenditures effected for the
public benefit throughout the various Communes.
The principal source of returns on investments was the dividend from
the Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique
d'Haiti. Profits of the Bank are assigned as follows: one third to the
Public Treasury, one third for the development of projects designed to
increase exports, and one third to build up the surplus of the Bank. The
dividend in 1941-42 amounted to Gdes. 210,000 and one third of this,
or Gdes. 70,000, was taken up as miscellaneous receipts of the Gov-
ernment. Other returns on investments include interest on bonds of the
Republic held in the treasury investment account and interest on balances
on deposit with the Fiscal Agent for the payment of interest and amorti-
zation on Series A and Series C bonds.
Receipts from the third source of miscellaneous revenues mentioned
above - conversion of francs - 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 until they choose to redeem their
bonds. 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 into dollars.

From the above table it will be seen that expenditures in 1941-42
exceeded those of 1940-41 by Gdes. 2,160,337.35 and that only the
Departments of Foreign Relations, Finance, Agriculture and Labor and
the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale (the latter by comparison
with the expenditures of the Fiscal Representative's Office) showed declines.
During the preceding year, governmental salaries were reduced by 20
per cent. In 1941-42, the general reduction amounted to only 10 per
cent. This partial restoration of government salaries accounted, in large
measure, for the increased expenditures, although important additional
amounts were allocated and expended in connection with the reorganization
of such Departments as Agriculture and Labor, and Public Instruction as
well as for service of the public debt.
Expenditures of the Garde d'Haiti continued their preponderant lead
over the amounts expended by the other Services of the Government,
having amounted to 24.89 per cent of total disbursements from revenue.
The Garde d'Haiti is not only the country's military'force but its police
force as well, and the exigencies of the war situation have necessitated
allocation of more funds for the operation of this organization.
Expenditures for service of the public debt were Gdes. 313,010.81,
more than in the preceding year. Of this amount, Gdes. 100,000 rep-
resents payment in the form of token amortization of Series A and
Series C bonds of the Republic. No payments for this purpose were made
in 1940-41. The remainder of the increase covers interest paid on addi-
tional advances received under the Public Works Contract of 1938, as
modified in 1941.






12 BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

The increase of Gdes. 216,788.18 by the Department of Public Works
is accounted for largely by the payment of greater amounts for supplies
and materials and for transportation. The maintenance of the various
Public Works projects completed under the contract of 1938 between
the Government and the J. G. White Engineering Corporation falls to
the Department of Public Works.

Improved Public Instruction
The Department of Public Instruction expended Gdes. 224,384.10
more than in the preceding year. This Department underwent a reorgani-
zation in the course of the year. Only teachers holding appropriate
diplomas are now being employed, and the scale of pay has been somewhat
increased with a view to attracting teaching personnel having the
necessary preparation. Furthermore, the Department sent quite a number
of teachers abroad to receive advanced and specialized training. Also,
relatively large amounts were expended for repair of school buildings
and for the acquisition of supplies and equipment.
The expenditures of the National Public Health Service showed an
increase of Gdes. 242,654.02. Payments on account of salaries and wages
were above last year's figure. This was accounted for primarily, by the
fact that, as already explained, part of the salary reduction which was
in effect in 1940-41, was restored in 1941-42. Then, the Public Health
Service started paying its day laborers - street sweepers, drainage workers,
etc. - the minimum wage of Gdes. 1.50 per day required by law. This
second factor will explain to some considerable degree the increased amounts
paid for wages by other Departments and Services, such as the Public
Works Department and the Agricultural Service. In the course of the
year the Public Health Service also organized a corps of sanitary
inspectors.

Agriculture and Rural Education
The largest increase in disbursements, amounting to Gdes. 501,340.85,
was recorded by the Agricultural and Rural Education Service. This
Service, like the Department of Public Instruction, was reorganized. Some
of its activities - agricultural colonies - which had formerly been
financed with non-fiscal funds were transferred to the regular budget.
Furthermore, there was transferred to the regular budget of this Service
and somewhat amplified, the organization which exercises supervision
over the cultivation, preparation and delivery of coffee. One of the principal
duties of this coffee section is cup-testing with a view to maintaining
quality and uniformity in coffee shipped to foreign markets. The





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


activities of the cup-testing laboratory had been financed principally under
extraordinary appropriations in past years. Another addition to the
budget of the Agricultural Service in 1941-42 was a provision for the
supervision of agricultural and industrial enterprises.
The Department of Interior expended Gdes. 1,903,405.52 or Gdes.
229,527.94 more than in the preceding year. In the course of the year,
this Department expended Gdes. 150,075.00 from extraordinary appro-
priations. The largest item was Gdes. 100,000.00 to cover the cost of
special police work necessitated by war conditions.
The Department of Justice increased its expenditures by Gdes.
218,688.07. Since this budget is largely a salary budget-- personnel of
the Department, Supreme Court, Civil Courts and Justices of the Peace -
the increase over the preceding year resulted principally from the partial
restoration of salaries already referred to; also, there was a reorganization
in the Justice of the Peace courts in conformity with a revision of the
organic law covering these courts. The standard of the personnel -
education, experience, etc. - has been considerably raised.
Expenditures of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la
Republique d'Haiti showed a decline from the preceding year while those
of the Internal Revenue Service were greater than in 1940-41. Further
remarks will be made relative to these expenditures in the succeeding
sub-sections.
Disbursements by the Department of Finance were Gdes. 151,067.02
less than in the fiscal year 1940-41. This decline is explained by the fact
that in the prior year a total of Gdes. 500,000 was paid to the Banque
National de la Ripublique d'Haiti for its services as Treasury Agent,
Gdes. 200,000 of the said amount representing the balance due for the
fiscal year 1939-40. In the course of 1941-42, only the contractual
amount due for the year, Gdes. 300,000, was paid.

Foreign Relations Expenditures Decline
The expenditures of the Department of Foreign Relations decreased
from Gdes. 959,262.82 in the preceding year to Gdes. 705,785.34. This
decline was largely due to the fact that the 1940-41 budget carried
certain non-recurring appropriations, notably those for the Caribbean
Conference and for coffee publicity, etc., totalling some Gdes. 300,000.
The Department of Religion increased its expenditures by an amount
of Gdes. 121,890.67, Gdes. 100,000 of which represented the cost of
restoration of the Cathedral at Cap-Haitien.
The Department of National Economy was created at the beginning
of the year and combined with the Department of Commerce. The new






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Department showed an increase in its expenditures of Gdes. 20,155.00
when comparison is made with the expenditures effected by the Department
of Commerce in the previous year.
Expenditures in connection with International Institutions covered
payment of Haiti's proportionate share in the expenses of the various
international associations such as the Pan American Union and Inter-
American Coffee Board, of which Haiti is a member or to which Haiti
subscribes. These payments totalled Gdes. 44,720.35.
Disbursements by the Department of Agriculture and Labor, exclusive
of those of the Agricultural and Rural Education Service, declined from
Gdes. 45,862.30 in 1940-41 to Gdes. 34,541.21.
Table 37 gives a functional classification of expenditures for the fiscal
year and shows the percentage of the total expended on each function.
Included in the table are all disbursements of the Government, both
fiscal and non-fiscal. The net amount of all expenditures was Gdes.
29,554,349.66. The disbursements of the Garde d'Haiti accounted for
23.35 per cent of combined fiscal and non-fiscal expenditures. The
payments on account of the public debt represented 11.92 per cent of
the total, while education accounted for 11.54 per cent of all expenses.
The expenditures under the Public Works Contract of 1938 represented
only 8.47 per cent as compared with 21.86 per cent in the previous year.


Fiscal Department
Customs Administration
Prior to the fiscal year 1941-42 the expenses of the Customs Service
were paid from a fund consisting of 5 per cent of customs receipts. The
Executive Agreement of September 13, 1941, which provided for the
taking over, on October 1, 1941, by the Banque Nationale de la Repu-
blique d'Ha'iti, Fiscal Department, of the functions theretofore exercised
by the Office of the Fiscal Representative, provided also for the estab-
lishment in the general budget of the Government each year of a fixed
allocation, to be agreed upon between the Government and the Banque
National de la Republique d'Haiti, for the operation of the Fiscal Depart-
ment of the Bank. The appropriation carried in the 1941-42 budget for
this purpose amounted to Gdes. 967,724. However, only Gdes.
899,209.69 were expended and the savings, totalling Gdes. 60,514.31,
were returned to the Government at the end of the year. The expenses
of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la Republique
d'Haiti, which includes the Customs Administration and the Central

The reduction in the salary schedule is explained largely by the fact
that the American personnel of the Banque. National de la Ripublique
d'Ha'iti, Fiscal Department, is less than the American personnel of the
Fiscal Representative's Office and that special payments on termination of
service were made, in 1940-41, to the retiring American members of the
Fiscal Representative's Office.
Supplies and Materials and Equipment were the only items which
showed increases over the amounts expended in the previous year, and
this was due principally to a general rise in the prices of imported articles.
In connection with the decline in Special and Miscellaneous expenditures,
it should be remarked that in the preceding year, an amount of Gdes.
47,540.46 was paid to the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique d'Ha'iti
in partial compensation for its services as Treasury'Agent during 1939-40.
The full amount due for Treasury Service during the year under review
was carried in the budget of the Department of Finance.
Internal Revenue Service
The Operating Fund of the Internal Revenue Service is derived princi-
pally from an allowance of 10 per cent of all internal revenue receipts
collected and 15 per cent of the communal taxes collected by the Internal
Revenue Service. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 1942, 10
per cent of internal revenues amounted to Gdes. 533,741.61, and 15 per
cent of communal revenues totalled Gdes. 369,274.34. Other accruals
to the fund of the Internal Revenue Service, amounting to Gdes. 7,351.84,

* The increase in salary payments was principally accounted for by two
factors. First, the salary reductions which had been in effect in the previous
year were not carried over. In the second place, certain internal revenue
agents are paid certain percentages, varying with the type of taxes, of
the amounts which they collect. It naturally follows that these percentage
amounts, which are considered as salaries, increase as the internal revenue
receipts increase. Revenue statistics show that internal revenue collections
rose by Gdes. 458,490.01 during the period under review.
The increase in the cost of supplies and materials resulted from the
general rise in the cost of imported articles and from expenditures in
connection with the printing of stamps.
The accruals to the Operating Fund of the Internal Revenue Service
having amounted to Gdes. 910,367.79 and expenditures having totalled
Gdes. 870,955.84, the unutilized balance of Gdes. 39,411.95 was returned
to the Government.

Inspection Service
The Internal Revenue Inspection Service was organized in conformity
with the provisions of the Accord of August 7, 1933 between the Haitian
and United States Governments to function under the Fiscal Repre-
sentative's Office. When the latter office was abolished on October 1,
1941, under the terms of the Executive Agreement of September 13, 1941,
the Inspection Service was reorganized through the recall to the center of
Inspectors previously resident in the provinces. These inspectors now
make periodic inspection trips, covering both Customs and Internal Rev-
enue business.
The operating fund of the Inspection Service is derived from an al-
lowance of 5 per cent of all internal revenues collected. These accruals
amounted to Gdes. 266,870.80 while expenditures totalled only Gdes.
152,994.36. The balance of Gdes. 113,876.44 was returned to the Public
Treasury.
Details of the expenditures of the Inspection Service in 1941-42 and
those of the Internal Revenue Inspection Service in 1940-41, were as
follows:
1911-42 1940-41

The same factors which, in the case of the Fiscal Department, resulted
in a saving on account of salaries in 1941-42 as compared with 1940-41,





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


applied also in the case of the Inspection Service. The greatest saving in
the latter Service occurred under the heading of Transportation, which
declined from Gdes. 80,923.68 to Gdes. 42,957.34. Formerly, official
cars, operated at Government expense, were used by certain chiefs of Service.
This practice was discontinued in 1941-42, thus accounting for part of the
decline in transportation expenses for the year.

J. G. White Contract Terminated
Under the contract signed July 6, 1938 between the Haitian Government
and the J. G. White Engineering Corporation, as modified by a further
contract dated September 30, 1941, the J. G. White Engineering Corpo-
ration undertook to execute in Haiti a -program of public works to cost
not more than Gdes. 27,500,000. At the end of the fiscal year 1940-41
total expenditures under this program had reached Gdes. 24,747,362.42.
The J. G. White Engineering Corporation continued to carry out certain
projects to the end of May, 1942, when its cumulative disbursements under
the contract had reached Gdes. 26,695,089.05. At the latter date, under
an agreement between the Haitian Government, the J. G. White Engineer-
ing Corporation, the Export-Import Bank of Washington and the Societi
Haitiano-Amiricaine de D6veloppement Agricole (SHADA), the J. G.
White Engineering Corporation was relieved from further obligations
under its two contracts with the Government and SHADA was authoriz-
ed to complete certain projects undertaken under the original program
provided, however, that the cost of such work should not exceed the
unexpended balance of the original authorization of Gdes. 27,500,000.
The amount which remained available to SHADA at the end of May,
1942, was Gdes. 804,910.95. Expenditures during the last four months
of the fiscal year totalled Gdes. 554,892.25, bringing cumulative expen-
ditures under the program to Gdes. 27,249,981.30 and leaving Gdes.
250,'018.70 as a maximum yet to be expended on the uncompleted projects.
These projects include:
Completion of the road from Anse d'Hainault to Source Chaude;
Completion of the buildings of the rubber nursery at Marfranc;
Construction of masonry platforms for drying coffee;
Operation of existing coffee nurseries;
Drilling of wells and installation of irrigation pumps;
Purchase of spare parts for sprayers being used to combat the banana plant disease
known as Sigatoka.

Treasury Position
Government receipts declined by Gdes. 1,330,627.03 in 1941-42 while
disbursements increased by Gdes. 2,160,337.35 when comparison is made
with the revenue and expenditures statistics of the preceding fiscal year.
It is, therefore, evident that the treasury position suffered. In fact, treasury






BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


liabilities at the end of the year exceeded treasury assets by Gdes. 121,-
039.37, whereas at September 30, 1941, there was an unobligated surplus
of Gdes. 1,857,859.49.

In connection with the deficit at the end of the fiscal year, it is pertinent
to recall here the remarks made in the introductory paragraphs of this
report, relative to an arrangement, agreed to in principle between the
Haitian and American Governments, whereby certain advances may be
made to Haiti by the Export-Import Bank of Washington to stabilization of Haitian finances at present levels of expenditures and in the
maintenance of a supply of dollar exchange essential to its economy,. The
agreement in question was signed on September 22, 1942. Fortunately, it
was not necessary to take advantage of its terms before the close of the fiscal
year.
It is also pertinent to state that, after the close of the fiscal year, arran-
gements were made for the payment into the Public Treasury of an amount






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


equivalent to the deficit at September 30 from the surplus built up by the
communal administrations of the Republic, whose receipts and expendi-
tures, since October 1, 1941, have been supervised by the Banque Nationale
de la Rip'ublique d'Ha'iti under the terms of the Executive Agreement of
September 13, 1941. The said payment, will be treated as a reduction in
the amounts advanced to the Communes by the Government in past years.

Public Debt

The gross public debt of the Republic of Haiti at September 30, 1942
amounted to Gdes. 70,468,212.60, not including the amount of Gdes.
121,039.37 representing the Treasury deficit at that date. Table No. 43
presents a statement of the public debt at the end of each fiscal year since
1915. For convenient comparison, the portion of that table which shows
the debt as September 30 of each year since 1924 (the year in which,
through refunding operations and consolidation, the amount of the debt
was fixed in dollars) is reproduced here:

* Total expenditures from revenue for service of the public debt amounted
to Gdes. 3,523,063.75 during the fiscal year under review. Expenditures
for interest, amortization and handling charges on Series A bonds, Series
C bonds, and the advances under the Public Works Contract of 1938 were
as follows:

Total .................... 3,394,066.70 100,000 28,997.05 3,523,063.75

All interest for the year on the outstanding indebtedness of the Republic
was paid in full. None of the notes issued under the Public Works Contract
fell due in the course of the year. At the beginning of the year it was
foreseen that, as a result of the war, the revenue level would remain low
and it was recognized that if the essential Services of the Government were
to be maintained it would be impossible to pay the full amounts for amor-
tization of Series A and Series C bonds called for by the loan contracts.
In consequence, a supplementary Executive Agreement was signed on Sep-
tember 30, 1941, between the Haitian and American Governments, provid-
ing for the payment in 1941-42 of interest in full on Series A and Series C
bonds but of only an amount of Gdes. 100,000 toward amortization of
these bonds. This was a renewal of similar agreements signed in recent
years, except that the one for the preceding year did not provide for
the payment of any amount on account of amortization.

Functions of Bank Board
The Executive Agreement of August 7, 1933 provided for the setting
aside and crediting to the Fiscal Representative of the amounts needed for
payments connected with the execution of the Series A and Series C loan
contracts. This Agreement was replaced by the Executive Agreement of
September 13, 1941, which provided for the abolition of the offices of the
Fiscal Representative and of the Deputy Fiscal Representative. The latter
Agreement was summarized in the Annual Report for 1940-41 but certain
of its terms seem to warrant repetition here. Under the terms of the 1941
Agreement, the National Bank of the Republic of Haiti is charged with
certain specified fiscal functions. The Board of Directors of the Bank
consists of an Honorary President and six voting members. The Haitian
Minister of Finance or, in his absence, the acting Minister of Finance, is the
ex-officio Honorary President. Under the terms of the Agreement, three of
the voting members are always to be citizens of the Republic of Haiti
while the other three voting members are always to be citizens of the United






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


States of America. The Haitian members of the Board of Directors are
appointed by the President of the Republic of Haiti while the American
members are chosen by mutual agreement of the two Governments. All
voting members of the Board are appointed for a period of five years and
may be removed only for cause. The Agreement further provides that there
shall be two co-Presidents of the Board of Directors of the Bank, one of
whom, the Haitian Minister of Finance, acts as Honorary President. One
of the three American members of the Board of Directors is the other co-
President. Among his duties, under the terms of the Agreement of Septem-
ber 13, 1941, which went into effect on October 1, 1941, is to represent
the holders of the bonds of 1922 and 1923 and to receive from the Nation-
al Bank of the Republic of Haiti, as sole depository of all revenues, the
sums contractually due for the payment of interest and amortization on
Series A and Series C bonds of the Republic of Haiti.
As already stated, the full contractual interest on these bonds was paid
in 1941-42 but only a token amount of Gdes. 100,000 was paid toward
amortization, the latter payment having been authorized by the supple-
mentary Executive Agreement of September 30, 1941 which modified in
part, for the fiscal year 1941-42 only, the provisions of the Executive
Agreement of September 13, 1941 relative to service of the public debt.

The Budget

The 1941-42 budget, as promulgated, fixed authorized expenditures at
Gdes. 27,336,814.26. The original appropriation covered with reasonable
adequacy all government operating requirements although, as usual, there
were a number of additions to the budget during the year in the form of
supplementary appropriations to cover deficiencies which developed in the
ordinary budget, particularly in connection with matters of National De-
fense. These supplementary appropriations totalled Gdes. 700,624.87 but
they were largely compensated by cancellations from various appropriations
authorized in the original budget. The Internal Revenue Service is author-
ized by legislation to expend a certain percentage of its effective receipts to
defray the cost of collection. Due to the fact that collections by the Internal
Revenue Service were much higher than the amounts originally estimated,
the accruals to the operating account of this Service were considerably in
excess of the nominal amount carried in the general budget of the Govern-
ment.
After allowing for supplementary credits not compensated by cancella-
tions and for the additional accruals to the operating account of the Internal






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Revenue Service, the total budgetary allocations for the year amounted to
Gdes. 27,892,620.61. This figure compares with recent years as follows:

Haitian Government Budget

Supplementary appropriations

1937-38................................................. 28,733,757.83
1938-39................................................. 29,376,693.87

1940-41................................................ 25,396,998.55
1941-42................................................ 27,892,620.61

Allocations during 1941-42 for extraordinary, or non-operating, ex-
penditures amounted to Gdes. 248,024.55. The ways and means for some
of these appropriations were covered by cancellations from budgetary or
other accounts.
While ordinary and supplementary appropriations amounted to Gdes.
27,892,620.61 and extraordinary allocations amounted to Gdes. 248,-
024.55, or a total of Gdes. 28,140,645.16, only Gdes. 27,726,161.60
were expended. Balances of budgetary appropriations not utilized at the
end of the fiscal year are automatically cancelled. Extraordinary appropria-
tions, however, may be expended over a two-year period. The balance of
the latter appropriations at September 30, 1942 amounted to Gdes. 10,-
495.58.
The budget of the new fiscal year 1942-43 authorizes expenditures of
Gdes. 27,528,000 as compared with actual expenditures of Gdes. 27,726,-
161.60 during the fiscal year ended September 20, 1942.

Banking and Currency
Haiti is served by two banks, the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique
d'Ha'iti which is owned by the Haitian Government, and the Royal Bank
of Canada. The latter has its only Haitian office in Port-au-Prince. The
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti, besides its headquarters office
at Port-au-Prince, maintains branches and agencies at the twelve other open
ports of the Republic. In addition to its ordinary commercial operations
the Banque Nationale is the Government bank of issue and the sole depo-
sitory of all revenues and public funds of whatsoever nature of the Govern-
ment of Haiti.
The two banking institutions referred to above reported average loans
and discounts during 1941-42 totalling Gdes. 7,564,504.58. The corre-
sponding figure in 1940-41 was Gdes. 5,735,578.29.
Bank deposits increased in amount over the previous year. Excluding
government accounts, deposits in 1941-42 averaged Gdes. 15,271,935.62
as compared with an average of Gdes. 13,762,277.36 during 1940-41.

September 30, 1942........................................... 22,959,417

Table No. 47 presents the circulation of gourde bank notes by months.
It is believed that several factors were responsible for the increase in
currency circulation. For example, Haitian agricultural workers and pro-
cessors received some Gdes. 5,000,000 more for their products shipped
abroad in the course of 1941-42 than they received in the previous year.
Furthermore, employment in new agricultural developments, such as rubber
and sisal, rose sharply. Presumably a considerable proportion of the
additional amounts received by the peasants for their commodities and ser-
vices is being saved (hoarded) by them. This saving or hoarding is pre-
sumably due to inability to buy imported articles in the volume or in the
variety of former years because of war conditions.
It is also believed that, prior to Haiti's entry into the war, the local
German and Italian residents withdrew from the banks (and hoarded)
gourde notes of a considerable value.
In the course of the year certain detachments of the United States armed
forces were stationed in Haiti or in Haitian waters. The increased currency
circulation reflected in the above tabulation doubtlessly is explained, in
some part, by the disbursements effected by these organizations.

Supply Service
The Central Supply Office known as the �Bureau de Fournitures>
continued, as a division of the Fiscal Department, to furnish stationery,
office supplies and equipment to the several Departments and Services of






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


the Haitian Government. Due to forward buying, the Bureau was able to
maintain fairly adequate stocks of the various supplies required by the
Government offices. However, certain difficulties in connection with the
execution of orders, and delays in shipment were encountered as a result of
war conditions. For example, the manufacture of certain qualities of paper
has been discontinued. Also steel equipment such as filing cabinets, type-
writers and adding machines are difficult or impossible to obtain.
The profit and loss statement of the �Bureau de Fournitures� for the
fiscal year 1941-42 appears in Table No. 45 while the balance sheet as of
September 30, 1942 is carried in Table No. 46.
During the year under review, a change occurred in the organization of
the Office of the Purchasing Agent for the Haitian Government in the
United States. Since 1925, Mr. H. L. Hershey of New York City had
served in the latter capacity executing orders placed not only by the (Bu-
reau de Fournitures> but also by other Departments and Services of the
Haitian Government. In 1942 Mr. Hershey informed the Haitian Govern-
ment that, in future, other business would occupy all of his time and, at
his request, the long association was terminated. It is desired to make of
record here the value of the services rendered by Mr. Hershey over a period
of seventeen years. In Mr. Hershey's place, the Mohegan Trading
Corporation of New York City has been appointed Purchasing Agent of
the Haitian Government in the United States.


Increased Foreign Commerce Values
The value of Haitian exports during the fiscal year ended September
30, 1942, exceeded the value of imports by a slight margin. The figures
were Gdes. 42,886,390 and Gdes. 42,285,166 respectively.
For the first time in five years, during 1941-42, an export balance was
built up. Not since the fiscal year ended September 30, 1936 had the
annual value of Haitian exports exceeded the value of Haitian imports. The
figures for the period mentioned were as follows:

5,129,618 in import values.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Trade Position Improves
Because export values exceeded import values and showed a relatively
greater increase than import values, Haiti's trade position as of September
30, 1942, was substantially stronger than at the end of the previous fiscal
year. The result was due entirely to the higher prices which Haitian
export products commanded in foreign markets. The volume of trade,
because of the disruption of shipping services, declined. On the whole,
however, because of increased values, trade results for the year were, not-
withstanding transport and other difficulties occasioned by the war, rela-
tively satisfactory.
The trade balance, it is true, is only one item in a complicated account.
Past attempts, however, to establish an accurate balance of Haitian payments
have not been entirely convincing. The process is more difficult today
than ever before because of the setting up of joint enterprises such as
SHADA and the supplying of material under Suffice it, therefore, to say here that the excess of Haitian exports establish-
ed in 1941-42, although small, was none the less an indication of a general-
ly healthy trend.


Percentage of Imports by Countries of Origin

The following table shows the percentage of Haiti's imports from the
principal countries of origin, including colonies, dependencies and domi-
nions, for the fiscal year 1941-42 and 1940-41:

1941-42 1940-41

It is of interest that the share in Haiti's import trade of the United States
of America and of the British Commonwealth declined in 1941-42 and
that Mexico took a place as an important supplier of Haitian import
requirements. The sudden rise in the percentage of imports from Mexico
was accounted for almost entirely by Haitian purchases of cotton textiles
in that country. Cotton textiles, as will be seen from a subsequent table,
made up 42.6 per cent of total Haitian imports for the year.

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The shifts in the relative importance of the items listed above appear to
have been due, largely, to the application by the United States of war
emergency restrictions on exports of certain categories of goods such, for
instance, as iron and steel products and automobiles and trucks. The in-
crease in 1941-42 in the value of Haitian imports of textiles and clothing
was noteworthy.

Prices of Principal Commodities

The table below shows C.I.F. prices as computed from customs records
for leading commodities during the past four years:

The figures illustrate strikingly the more recent acceleration of a generally
consistent rise in prices over a period of years.


Port-au-Prince Trade Gains

Already in 1940-41, almost 80 per cent of Haiti's imports were landed
at Port-au-Prince. War conditions stimulated the process still further.
That Haitian foreign commerce has tended to concentrate in Port-au-
Prince at the expense of the provincial ports is shown by the following
table:

Percentage of Imports by Ports
1941-42 1940-41
Per cent Per cent

Whether or not Port-au-Prince will in future, under more normal con-
ditions, maintain its preponderant lead as a port of entry into Haiti remains
to be seen.

The increase in the percentage of exports to the British Commonwealth
in 1941-42 was accounted for largely by increased shipments of sugar to
the United Kingdom. During the fiscal year 1940-41, exports of raw
sugar to the United Kingdom amounted to 5,079,268 kilos, valued at
Gdes. 420,006, whereas during 1941-42, 18,185,248 kilos of raw sugar,
valued at Gdes. 5,010,806, were exported to that country.

Significant among the trade developments of the year, illustrated by the
above table, was the extent to which Haiti's banana industry was affect-
ed by the disruption of sea transport facilities and the decision to allocate
shipping space first to more essential commodities.

As will be seen from the above table, coffee holds, preeminently, first
place among Haitian export products. The substantial increase of 35 per
cent in the value of coffee exported during the fiscal year ended September
30, 1942, was due entirely to the higher prices obtained for the crop. The
volume exported during the fiscal year actually declined by some 20 per
cent.

Exports of sugar from Haiti more than doubled in value during the fiscal
year under review. The volume of sugar exported, however, was less by
2,631,000 kilos in 1941-42 than in 1940-41.

The effect of war conditions on the banana industry, several times
referred to elsewhere in this Report, is again strikingly illustrated by the
figures given above.

The remaining 0.01 per cent of exports in 1941-42 was shipped
through the three Dominican frontier ports.
Special factors, such as the proximity of plantations, affect export traffic
through provincial ports. Port-au-Prince, however, which headed the list
of ports of entry into Haiti is also the chief port for shipment of Haitian
products to foreign markets.


Principal Export Products
Details of 1941-42 operations involving certain of Haiti's principal
export products are reviewed below:


Coffee
Although the amount of Haitian coffee exported in the fiscal year ended
September 30, 1942 was some 4,536,000 kilos less than the amount
exported in the previous year, the value increased by Gdes. 4,464,424.
The following table shows the quantity of coffee exported during the
last two fiscal years by countries of destination:
1941-42 1940-41
Kilos Per cent Kilos Per cent
Canada ...................... ................ ........ 2,037,762 9.0
Switzerland ................. 40,000 0.2 40,000 0.2
United States................ 18,033,709 99.6 20,541,885 90.7
All other....................... 31,002 0.2 21,628 0.1
18,104,711 100.0 22,641,275 100.0

As shown by the above figures, the United States in 1941-42 took
almost 100 per cent of Haitian coffee exports. Canada which had figured
as a buyer of Haitian coffee in 1940-41 made no coffee purchases in
1941-42.
Through various adjustments, the United States Coffee Quota for 1941-
42 was raised from 206,250 to approximately 305,000 bags of 80 kilos.
While lack of shipping space made it impossible for Haiti to take full
advantage of this increase, exports of coffee applied to this quota were
substantially greater than the basic amount of 206,250 bags.
Early in October 1942, the United States Army contracted to purchase
some 50,000 bags of coffee in Haiti. In view of the fact that this coffee
was to be old crop and that it was advisable to take advantage of the
shipping space thus guaranteed by the United States Government, it was
decided to register the sales under this contract outside of local quotas.
Exporters with stocks benefited by this sale.







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


* The basic quota (206,250 bags) has been raised for 1942-43 to 258,000
bags of 80 kilos and with the short crop which may not exceed 200,000
bags, the problem of a non-exportable surplus loses its character of urgency
to the point that the special financing as provided for in the Export-Import
Bank coffee credit may not be needed unless lack of shipping space forces an
accumulation of exportable stocks.

Part of the carry-over of previous years has been absorbed by the increase
in the 1941-42 quota and much of what remains of that surplus will be
taken care of by the excess of the 1942-43 quota over the estimated yield
of the present crop.

Cotton
The price received for Haitian cotton in 1941-42 was substantially
higher than the price received for the previous year's crop and although a
slightly smaller amount was sold abroad during the year under review,
than during the previous year, the value of cotton exports increased. In
1941-42, exports of 2,289,539 kilos of Haitian cotton were valued at
Gdes. 2,359,852, whereas the 2,630,405 kilos exported in the previous
fiscal year were valued at Gdes. 2,313,791.

The average prices received for Haitian cotton during the last ten fiscal
years are shown below:
Cotton Prices
Gourdes - Per Kilo
1941-42 ................................................................ 1.03
1940-41.................................................................. 0.88

1933-34................................................................ 1.29
1932-33.......................................................... 0.79


One hundred per cent of commercial exports of Haitian cotton in 1941-
42 went to Colombia.

Sugar
A sharp rise in the price of raw sugar in 1941-42 resulted in an increase
in the value of exports of this commodity from Gdes. 2,046,122 in 1940-
41 to Gdes. 5,168,635 during the year under review. Thus the value of
sugar exports more than doubled, although the amount exported in 1941-
42 was 1,097,518 kilos less than in the previous year. The United
Kingdom took practically all of the 1941-42 sugar crop. In the previous
fiscal year the major portion of the crop was sold in the United States. :

ed from customs records, are given below:

Not since 1928-29 when the F.O.B. price was Gde. 0.326 per kilo has
the sugar crop commanded the price averaged in 1941-42.


Banana Exports

That the fiscal year under review was a most difficult one for the Haitian
banana industry has been indicated elsewhere in this report. Because of the
war, shipping services were irregular and space priority was given to com-
modities other than bananas.

The following table shows the number of stems of bananas exported
during the fiscal year ended September 30, 1942, the values and the ports
of shipment, compared with those of the previous fiscal year:

and of the rise in the corresponding export values is clearly shown by the
above table.

Haitian-Dominican Commercial Convention

On March 23, 1942, ratifications were exchanged, at Ciudad Trujillo,
of a Commercial Convention between Haiti and the Dominican Republic,
signed some seven months previously at Port-au-Prince.
The instrument deals, specifically, with facilities to be accorded by the
Dominican Republic to Haitian labor used in Dominican agricultural enter-
prises and, in addition to establishing preferential tariff rates for specified
goods entering the respective countries, fixes also, in a �Protocol> attached
to the Convention, special conditions for frontier traffic arising out of the
operation of the several markets established in a restricted area on either
side of the boundary line. In brief, the Convention was designed to pro-
mote the freer circulation of goods, capital, services and persons between
the two countries and was hailed, as stated in its preamble, as an evidence
of the mutual understanding and happy relations existing between the
two parties.
The United States, in order to facilitate execution of the Convention
agreed to waive rights accruing from a prior Most-Favored-Nation agree-
ment.
Among the items of Haitian production to which the Dominican Repub-
lic, under the Convention, applies special preferential rates of duty are
empty sisal bags, handbags, and novelties made of sisal and high grade
Haitian rum. Raw sisal was, among other items, subsequently added to
the original list by an exchange of Notes between the two Governments.
Among the items of Dominican production to which Haiti, under the
Convention, applies special preferential rates of duty are tobacco, cigars,
toilet and laundry soaps, perfumery, cheese, butter and butter substitutes
and beer. Empty sisal bags were subsequently added to the original list by

ly existing between the two countries with respect to this particular item
having been thus restored.
Up to the end of the fiscal year on September 30, 1942, there had been
six months of Haitian-Dominican trade under the Commercial Convention.
This traffic, by months is reviewed below:

It will be seen from the above tables that there was a very great rise in
the value both of imports into Haiti from the Dominican Republic and of
exports from Haiti to the Dominican Republic during the six months in
question as compared with the corresponding six months of the previous
fiscal year. It is of interest that in the case of imports into Haiti of Domin-
ican products, the increase was consistent, by months, with a fairly large
representation of commodities including beer, butter and butter substitutes,
live animals and soap, as well as certain items not mentioned in the Con-
vention, whereas exports of a single commodity, namely, raw sisal, shipped
in the three months of April, August and September, made up practically
100 per cent of Haitian exports to the Dominican Republic during the
period in question.
The details of Haitian-Dominican trade will be found in the �Import
Schedule> on pages 83 to 101 of this Report.
It is perhaps premature to draw conclusions from the record of only six
months of commercial exchanges between Haiti and the Dominican Repub-
lic under the Commercial Convention of 1942, a period during which





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


special war conditions existed. It is clear, however, that during the six
months in question, the value of Haitian imports from, and exports to, the
Dominican Republic showed a very great rise as compared with the corre-
sponding period of the previous fiscal year. It appears to be a fact too that,
although the value of Dominican shipments to Haiti was substantially
higher than the value of Haitian shipments to the Dominican Republic
during the six months, the advantage was not entirely disproportionate.

Air Transport Gains
As was to be expected in view of the disruption of sea transport services,
air transport between Haiti and continental and Caribbean areas made
substantial gains during the months immediately following the outbreak
of war. The experience made it clear how vitally important to the well-
being of Haiti are the facilities for passenger traffic and for the shipment of
mail and parcels by air, which have been developed by Pan American
Airways during the period which has elapsed since the first World War.
The number of planes maintaining regular schedules to and from Haiti
was substantially increased in 1942 in order to take care of the additional
traffic diverted to this means of transportation as a consequence of the
disruption of ocean shipping facilities.
The number of incoming passengers during the twelve months ended
September 30, 1942, totalled 1,041. This represented a gain of some
78 per cent over the 586 who arrived during the twelve months ended
December 31, 1941. The latter period is used as a basis for comparison
since earlier available records are not divided into fiscal periods. It is
believed that the figures for the calendar year will serve the purpose in view.
The number of outgoing passengers was 1,567 or a gain of some 40
per cent over the 1,117 recorded for the calendar year 1941.
Air express carried in 1941-42 also showed substantial gains. The num-
ber of incoming shipments totalled 1,352 as against 1,026, or a gain of
approximately 32 per cent during the fiscal year ended September 30, 1942,
as compared with the calendar year 1941. The comparable figures for
outgoing shipments were 682 as against 419, or a gain of approximately
63 per cent.

Change in Membership of Bank Board
One change occurred, during the fiscal year 1941-42, in the membership
of the Board of Directors of the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique
d'Ha'iti.
As of June 17, 1942, Mr. Jules Faine, former Senator and distinguished
Haitian scholar, took his seat on the Board, by appointment of the Presi-
dent of Haiti, to replace Mr. Edouard Estive who resigned after some eight
months of service as a Board member.

National Bank Appointed Sequestrator-Liquidator
By decree-law dated December 18, 1941, modified, notably, by decree-
law of December 29, 1941, the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti
was named Sequestrator-Liquidator General of enemy properties and of
properties of allies of the enemy, and was given the necessary powers to
administer, or liquidate, under such conditions as it might deem most ad-
vantageous, the sequestered real and personal properties.
The legislation provides that the Sequestrator-Liquidator General shall
act as Agent of the Haitian Government; that it shall be accountable for its
administration of the properties only to the Departments of Finance, Com-
merce, and Justice, and that no suit may be filed against it or its agents
either directly or indirectly, except by the State. Provision is also made for
the continued operation, with the authorization of the Departments of
Finance, Commerce and Justice under the control of the Sequestrator-Li-
quidator General, of certain commercial institutions, firms, or associations,
either enemy or allies of the enemy, if the public interest or the interest
of Haitian or neutral creditors so demands. Furthermore, provision is made
for the exploitation of agricultural enterprises and for the operation of
industrial establishments with the existing personnel under the control of
the Sequestrator-Liquidator. By decree-law dated June 15, 1942, the
Government was authorized to draw, for purposes of national defense, on
funds realized from the liquidation of enemy properties.

Port Authority Created
Of interest, administratively, to the Fiscal Department although, prima-
rily, a military measure designed to meet new problems arising out of the
war emergency, was the creation, towards the end of the fiscal year 1941-
42, of a Central Port Authority.
By decree dated September 18, 1942, the President of the Republic of
Haiti provided for the creation of a special service, within the framework
of the Customs Administration, under the direction of the Fiscal Depart-
ment, to provide increased protection for Haitian ports. Under the plan,
authority in the port areas, heretofore devided between several services both
civil and military, is centered in the Fiscal Department and delegated by the
latter to the Directors of Customs. A detachment from the Haitian Coast
Guard will be assigned to duty in each port, key officials in the Customs
Administration having been granted commissions in the Haitian armed
forces with a view to establishing their authority over the enlisted per-
sonnel and the better to assure discipline. It is believed that the plan, by
defining responsibilities and fixing authority and through better coordina-
tion of customs and police activities will simplify administrative processes
and tend to increase security in the various ports.

American Sanitary Mission
The American Sanitary Mission was organized in 1942 to undertake
health and sanitation activities in Haiti. The ground work for the enter-
prise was laid in March during the visit of President Lescot to Washington.
The American Sanitary Mission is a unit of the Institute of Inter-
American Affairs which is a Delaware corporation designed to prosecute
health and sanitation work in Latin America. The Institute is controlled
by the Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs.
The Mission is organized as an independent unit but reports directly
to the Director of the Division of Health and Sanitation of the Office of
the Coordinator. It works in cooperation with the Haitian &Service Na-
tional d'Hygiene�, undertaking projects proposed by the latter organization
and work suggested by its own investigations and surveys. All health and
sanitation activities generally are prosecuted only after complete agreement
with the The projects that the Mission may undertake include installation or
improvement of water supplies, sewerage systems, malaria and mosquito
control, general sanitation activities in the control of various communicable
diseases. Fellowships and scholarships in sanitary engineering, public health
nursing, public health medicine will be sponsored by the Institute, for local
candidates.
In addition to this work in cooperation with the Haitian Government
the Mission, as a representative of the Defense Supplies Corporation, will
execute and supervise health and sanitation programs on the plantations of
La Plantation Dauphin S. A. and the Haitian Agricultural Corporation,
producers of sisal fiber. These companies have a health and sanitation
agreement with the Defense Supplies Corporation.
The first projects of this Mission were started on June 1st, 1942; these
were Units 1 and 2, malaria control drainage projects, in the Port-au-
Prince district. Since that time, other health and sanitation units have been
started in the Port-au-Prince area and district offices have been opened in
Aux Cayes, Petit-Goive, Cap-Ha'tien and M6le St.-Nicolas, Work is
at present under way in these places and plans are under considera-
tion for initiating work in Port-de-Paix, Gonaives, Jacmel, JNrimie and
Pitionville.

Soci6t6 Haitiano-Am6ricaine de Developpement Agricole (SHADA)
Notwithstanding difficulties arising out of war conditions, the fiscal year
ended September 30, 1942, was one of expansion for the Soci&te Haitiano-
Am6ricaine de Diveloppement Agricole, commonly known as SHADA.
Organized in August 1941 by joint action of the Haitian and United





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


States Governments with a view to developing Haitian agricultural re-
sources on a sound basis, SHADA is today one of the most important fac-
tors in Haitian economic life.
SHADA began activities in Haiti on August 16, 1941, by taking over
work that had been started at Bayeux with funds provided by the United
States Department of Agriculture. At that time, 269 persons were em-
ployed at Bayeux and five additional persons made up the Port-au-Prince,
or Central Office force. On September 30, 1942, SHADA's total personnel
numbered 17,211 of whom 20 were American supervisors and technicians;
398 were Haitian supervisors and technicians, and 16,793 were laborers.
Producing sisal, lumber, essential oils, cacao, handicrafts, rubber, fruits
and spices, SHADA's operating organization, aside from the central office,
was composed as of September 30, 1942, of six main Divisions. Four of
these divisions are geographical, each area producing its special crop, and
the other two are the Forestry and Handicrafts Divisions.
SHADA started operations at Bayeux and in the Port-au-Prince office
on August 16, 1941. The Grande Anse and Forestry Divisions were
established at the same time but they did not begin to function until about
October 1st, 1941. Operations were conducted on the basis of these three
divisions until Februray 1942 when the Handicrafts Division was estab-
lished. The St.-Marc and Cap-Haitien Divisions were added to the list
as of August 1st, 1942.
Each of SHADA's geographical divisions reported satisfactory progress
through September 30, 1942.
The Forestry Division is designed to improve the forest resources of
Haiti. The felling of timber trees is accompanied by the cutting out of
all dead snags, weed trees and malformed trees to improve the future timber
stand. The lumber production of SHADA's Forestry Division during the
first year of operation was 755,942 board feet. This amount proved to be
inadequate to meet the demands of the local market and the construction
program of SHADA. In addition to its other activities, the Forestry Di-
vision is experimenting with turpentine and rosin production and has
established a quinine nursery.
The Handicrafts Division is designed to encourage the individual pro-
duction of needlework, embroidery of various kinds such as mats and doilies
and novelties. This Division was handicapped in 1942 by the irregularity
of shipping services and other difficulties arising out of war conditions.
For the last three months of the fiscal year, however, a profit was reported
and it is believed that in the coming year the Handicrafts Division will be
self-supporting.
At the close of the fiscal year, following experiments which began in
May, it was clear that negotiations undertaken with the United States
Board of Economic Warfare and the Rubber Reserve Company for the
cultivation in Haiti of the vine acryptostegia grandiflora> would soon be





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 39

brought to a successful conclusion. The importance for Haiti of this de-
velopment, to which reference has been made in an earlier section of this
report, cannot be over emphasized. It is planned to plant up to 100,000
acres of ployment to some 100,000 Haitians. The budget for the work provides
for an expenditure in 1942-43 of over $7,000,000. SHADA's total bud-
get for 1942-43 provides for expenditures of approximately $9,300,000.


Conclusion
The fiscal year which ended September 30, 1942, was an extraordinary
and completely abnormal period for Haiti. Following the declarations of
war on the Axis Powers by the United States of America and by Haiti in
December 1941, a variety of unprecedented factors began at once to make
themselves felt. The normal flow of trade was affected by enemy sub-
marine activity, by the decision to divert a part of the available merchant
tonnage to war purposes and by the decision to allocate such shipping space
as was left for commercial use, first to commodities considered essential to
successful prosecution of the war effort.
For all of these reasons, it would be unwise to draw final conclusions
from comparison of the year's commercial and financial results with those
for other fiscal periods during which totally different conditions prevailed.
With this reservation, however, it may be stated, with satisfaction, that
the fiscal year which ended on September 30, 1942, showed, on the whole,
results very much better than those which had at one time, some eight
months previously, been feared. The period might easily have proved to
be disastrous. Thanks to the timely and energetic action taken by the Pres-
ident of Haiti, in going himself to Washington, and to the cooperative
attitude of and practical assistance given by the Government of the United
States of America, Haiti withstood the first economic shocks of the war
with a minimum of suffering and difficulties.
In times so disturbed as these it seems useless to try and look far ahead.
New economic forces have been set in motion. The bases on which the
world's economic structure have, heretofore, rested, are shifting. What the
future holds in store, - what the new organization of the future will be
must, necessarily, for the present, remain obscure.
For these reasons, the-scope of the present report has been limited to
the presentation of a single fiscal year's results; the abnormal and extraor-
dinary period ended September 30, 1942. No attempt has been made to
relate these results to an unknown future. It has seemed unnecessary to
repeat what has been said, under more normal conditions, in previous re-
ports, that no year can be considered entirely satisfactory so long as tem-
porary arrangements have to be made for the servicing, only in part, of





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


the country's foreign debt. This problem and its relation to the future of
Haiti will be considered elsewhere, at some more appropriate time. For the
present, it is enough to record the fact that Haiti has successfully met the
many and various new problems created by the outbreak of war and that,
relying on the quality of Haitian leadership and on the assurances and
evidences of practical help given by the Government of the United States
of:America, the country faces the future with confidence.
