FISCAL DEPARTMENT

covering the fiscal year

OCTOBER, 1943 SEPTEMBER, 1944


Port-au-Prince, Haiti, November 28, 1944.

To the
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE
BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI.

Sirs:

SThere is presented herewith the Annual Report of the Banque Nationale
de: la Ripublique d'Ha'iti, Fiscal Department, for the fiscal year ended
September 30th, 1944. Over a period of years, these Annual Reports,
published both in French and English and distributed abroad as well:as
,in Haiti, have proved of value as sources of reference for information
regarding general economic conditions in Haiti. For this reason, the
practice of incorporating in the Report material of general economic interest,
.not directly related to the operations of the Fiscal Department, has this
year, once again, been followed.
The fiscal year 1943-44, opened on October 1, 1943, at a time when
"the President of Haiti and certain of his Cabinet Ministers were traveling
abroad. Their trip included official visits to Canada, the United States
and.Cuba. In view of the fact that certain questions of common interest
to. Haiti and the United States were to be discussed with American
officials at Washington, it was decided to postpone preparation of a defini-
tive budget for 1943-44 until after the President's return to Haiti. For
the first few weeks of the fiscal year under review, therefore, Government
expenditures were effected in accordance with a provisional budget pro-
mulgated in May 1943. The definitive budget for 1943-44, as finally
promulgated on November 15, 1943, made provision for restoration :of
certain Government salaries which had been reduced during the pre-war
years of depression. At the same time provision was made for increased
expenditures under a number of other headings, notably for service of the






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


external debt. This upward revision of the authorized expenditures proved
later to be fully justified by the year's trade results and revenue collections.
The year 1943-44 was characterized by rising prices, expanding trade
and, as a consequence, increased government receipts. As the months of the
year passed, it became increasingly evident that the dislocation of normal
processes due to the war, was resulting in the creation of a form of pros-
perity for Haiti. Ships were being made available in sufficient quantity
to meet the country's requirements. Markets were being found for the
disposal of Haitian export products. Although war restrictions on certain
exports from the United States reduced the importation into Haiti of
certainn categories of goods, notably automotive and rubber products,
foreign merchandise was still available in sufficient quantities to meet
essential needs. On the whole, economic conditions throughout the year
may be said to have been surprisingly good.
The- improvement in Haitian trade and financial conditions during
1943-44 served to dispel earlier fears regarding the possible effects of the
war on the country's economy. In fact, the tendency was towards develop-
ment of a form of <> psychology and it would seem from results
for the year as a whole that this confidence regarding the immediate future
was justified.
One unfavorable development which occurred during the year, however,
merits emphasis. After many months of experimentation, the decision was
reached in 1944, to abandon the program for production of rubber from
cryptostegia. Execution of this program had involved investment of a
relatively large amount of United States capital in Haiti. It had provided
employment for thousands of Haitian laborers. It had meant increased
payrolls and increased bank-note circulation and increased purchasing
power. The full effects of reversal of all these trends and tendencies would
not, of course, be felt immediately. The decision to abandon the cryptos-
tegia program, however, and the related reorganization of the Socifti
Haitiano-Americaine de Developpement Agricole (SHADA) must serve
at least to temper optimism induced by rising prices, expanding foreign
trade values and record internal revenue collections.
The year's foreign trade operations are treated in detail in a later section
of this Report. It may be of interest, however, to summarize here certain
'of the salient features of this trade. The value of imports and exports in
1943-44 reached levels which had not been equalled for fifteen years or
more. There was a decline in the volume and value of coffee exports,
as compared with the previous year, but sugar exports, which included a
substantial carry over from the previous year's crop, rose to record high
levels. There was continued improvement in banana exports and cotton
shipments more than doubled, both in volume and value, as compared
with 1942-43. Still another item which warrants special notice was the
increase in 1943-44 in exports of sisal hand bags and other products of





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Haitian handicraft. These products are gradually assuming more and more
importance in Haitian economic life.
Notwithstanding the unusually high value of Haitian imports in 194.3-
1944, the fiscal year ended with a small export balance. Although, as has
been stated in previous Reports, the execution of cooperative Haitian-
American programs of work has greatly complicated the task of trying
to draw up a true statement of Haiti's balance of international payments,
the establishment for the third successive year of an export balance on the
foreign trade account may be viewed with satisfaction.

Revenue Collection Gains
Government revenue collections showed substantial gains in 1943-44.
Fiscal receipts for the year were higher than for any year since 1928-29.
Customs collections were well above those for 1942-43 and internal
revenue receipts established an all time high record.
Although, as stated above, decision was taken in 1944 to abandon the
cryptostegia program and to reorganize the Socifti Haitiano-Am6ricaine
de D6veloppement Agricole (SHADA), certain other joint Haitian-
American projects continued operations throughout the year, and still
'other new projects were inaugurated." The American Sanitary Mission
'continued in 1943-44 as in recent years, to assist Haiti in improving public
health conditions. Two new cooperative Haitian-American projects were
inaugurated. The latter were designed, respectively, to encourage the
production and supply of foodstuffs and to improve educational facilities
in the country. It should be added that execution of these joint .programs
calls for the expenditure of very much smaller sums than were involved
in financing the cryptostegia and SHADA projects.
In addition to the government projects mentioned above, several private-
ly financed American entreprises continued to function in Haiti throughout
1943-44. The more important of these included companies engagedin
the production of sugar and bananas, air transport, the supply of electric
power, and petroleum and bauxite exploration.
Of importance from the point of view of its future repercussions on
Haitian economy was the granting by the Haitian Government in 1944
of a concession for the establishment of, a cotton textile mill in Haiti. The
arrangement provides for special customs privileges and tax exemptions in
favor of the new company. The project is of special interest because cotton
textiles normally make up a large proportion of total imports into Haiti,
duties on such products producing roughly one-third of total import
revenues, because the mill will be the first of its kind ever established,in
the country, and because its sponsors have for many years been prominent
members of the local business community.
There follows a more detailed presentation of the facts which served
as basis for the foregoing brief review:





BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Government Receipts
Fiscal receipts of the Government from all sources during the fiscal year
1943-44 amounted to Gdes. 42,370,364.75* or 29.66 per cent more than
the amount of Gdes. 32,729,086.58 collected in the previous fiscal year.
It is interesting to note that the receipts for the fiscal year 1943-44 were
higher than those of any year since 1928-29 when they reached Gdes. 42,-
521,528.40. Government revenues in the fiscal year 1943-44, classified by
sources, as compared with those of the previous fiscal year, were as follows:

Sources Receipts
1943-44 1942-43
Customs: Gourdes Per cent Gourdes Per cent
Imports ........................... 24,504,201.39 57.8 16,127,961.62 49.3
Exports ........................... 6,423,125.74 15.2 6,137,093.69 18.8
Miscellaneous .................... 51,555.66 0.1 50,460.35 0.1
Internal Revenues ................ 10,488,722.10 24.8 8,667,619.33 26.5
Miscellaneous Government Re-
ceipts .............................. 458,139.57 1.1 1,318,644.99 4.0
Receipts from Communes........ 444,620.29 1.0 427,306.60 1.3
Total Revenues............ 42,370,364.75 100.0 32.729,086.58 100.0

From the above percentage columns it will be seen that receipts from
customs sources accounted for a greater proportion of total revenues in
1943-44 than in the previous year in spite of the fact that internal revenue
receipts reached an all-time high record in the year just closed.

Customs Collections

Total receipts from customs sources amounted to Gdes. 30,978,882.79
and represented 73.1 per cent of all revenues, as compared with 68.2 per
cent in 1942-43 and 75.8 per cent in 1941-42. The increase of some fifty
per cent in the amount of duties derived from the import tariff reflects not
only an increased volume of imports but also higher unit prices paid
for foreign merchandise. The favorable showing of import duty collections
also reflects the utilization of a considerable portion of the relatively large
purchasing power of the-Haitian people, which has resulted from higher
prices received for export commodities as well as from the entry into the
country of considerable foreign exchange in the form of capital investments.
Among the principal sources of this foreign exchange was the investment
of several million dollars by the Rubber Reserve Board in a project to
produce rubber from a native vine known as cryptostegia. The Soci&t
Haitiano-Amfricaine de Developpement Agricole (SHADA), which'
handled the cryptostegia program, also expended considerable sums in its
own developments, particularly in connection with hevea rubber and sisal.
Towards the end of the fiscal year 1943-44 decision was taken to abandon


*One gourde equals twenty cents U.S.. and the gourde is. by law, exchangeable on demand and without
expense at the fixed rate of five gourdes for one dollar. U.S.






:: '' REPORT OP FISCAL bEPA'IT MENT :' "


the cryptostegia program, hopes for which had not been borne out by
results. The decision was followed by a reorganization of SHADA whose
activities, as a consequence, declined sharply. For these reasons, it would
seem in order to make a downward revision of estimates of Haiti's pur-
chasing power.
The principal sources of import revenues, in order of yield, and compared
with the yield of the previous fiscal year, were:

As usual, cotton goods accounted for a considerably greater proportion
of customs receipts than any other schedule. The increase of almost
Gdes. 2,700,000, or approximately 50 per cent, in the amount of duties
derived from imported flour is worthy of note since it represents increased
volume, there being no ad valorem duty on this commodity.


Export Revenues
Export revenues by sources were as follows in 1943-44 and 1942-43:

Export duties rose from Gdes. 6,137,093.69 in 1942-43 to Gdes. 6,-
423,125.74 during the fiscal year 1943-44. Export revenues are prin-
cipally derived from the specific duties levied on coffee. These duties

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


accounted for 78.09 per cent of export revenues in 1943-44 as compared
with'91.50 per cent in 1942-43. The quantity of coffee shipped during
the year amounted to 23,116,197 kilos while the duties paid on these
shipments totalled Gdes. 5,015,459. During the prior year, coffee, shipments
amounted to 25,847,237 kilos and yielded Gdes. 5,615,366 in duties. The
decline of Gdes. 600,000 in duties derived from coffee was more than offset
by the export tax levied on sugar exports. Raw and refined sugars exported
in 1943-44 amounted to 77,621,000 kilos, as compared with 11,651,000
kilos in the prior fiscal year.

Internal Revenues
Internal revenue receipts established an all-time high record in 1943-
44, having amounted to Gdes. 10,488,722.10, or 21.01 per cent more
than the amount of Gdes. 8,667,619.33 collected in 1942-43. The latter
figure had represented the high point of internal revenue annual yield until
the close of the fiscal year 1942-43.
Excise taxes amounted to Gdes. 1,640,260.83 or 15.64 per cent of all
internal revenues. The excise group includes alcohol, tobacco products,
vegetable oil, lard substitutes and soap. The tax on cigarettes, totalling
Gdes. 824,561.81, represented slightly more than half of all excises.
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 1944, public services charges
accounted for 15.24 per cent of total internal revenues. In addition to the
Post Office, the Government owns and operates the telephone and tele-
graph systems, the urban hydraulic systems and, in most part, the rural
irrigation systems. The following table shows the receipts from, and the
expenditures by, these Services during the fiscal year 1943-44:

It should be remarked that the expenditures on account of the Postal
Service included Gdes. 90,000 for the construction of a post-office building
at Cap-Haitien.
It is also pertinent to remark at this time that, by virtue of decree-laws
dated September 23, 1944, the Telephone and Telegraph Service and
the Hydraulic Service became autonomous organizations as of October 1,
1944. Up to the end of the fiscal year 1943-44, the funds for the operation
of these :Services were appropriated in the annual expenditure budget of
the Government and receipts derived from these public utilities were
classified as internal revenue receipts of the public Treasury. Under the






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


'new arrangement, the two Services will hereafter function as non-fiscal
accounts outside the general budget of the Government; that is, receipts
will be credited to special non-revenue accounts and from these accounts
expenditures for the operation and improvement of the Services will be
effected. The decree-laws reorganizing the Water Service and the Telephone
and Telegraph Service provide that the Services will amortize the capital
which the Government has advanced in the past for the establishment of
the utilities. The legislation also provides for the payment of interest on
the outstanding balance of such capital. Provision is also made for the
payment to the public Treasury of all net profits after the above mentioned
amounts have been paid and special reserves for the replacement of equip-
ment have been established.
In the following table, sources of internal revenue yielding more than
Gdes. 100,000 are listed in the order of yield. The extent to which-there
were increases or decreases is also given:

The income tax was by far the most important source of internal
revenue, having accounted for 35.31 per cent of the total. Since no increase
in the rates occurred during the year, the rise in collections was due to
greater business profits and improved methods of collection.
.The next most important source of internal revenue was the excise on
cigarettes, which showed an increase over the preceding year of some
Gdes. 38,000 and accounted for 7.86 per cent of all internal revenues.
The sharp increase in the revenues derived from the sale of documentary
stamps reflects the increased business activity during the year, particularly
investments in real estate.
The increase of Gdes. 234,494.78 in recording fees also reflects the






BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


general prosperity prevailing in the Republic during the year and, more-
particularly, the establishment of new Haitian corporations.
The decline of some Gdes. 34,000 in identity card fees was brought
about largely by the sharp reduction in the labor payrolls of the Soci&ti
Haitiano-Am6ricaine de Developpement Agricole as the result of the aban-
donment of the program designed to produce rubber from cryptostegia.
During the previous year the Company itself assured collection of this
tax from the workers. Furthermore, in 1943-44 the identity card tax was
reduced for certain categories of day laborers.
The revenues collected as mineral exploration fees represented the annual
rental paid by Atlantic Refining Company on certain Government lands
which the company is authorized, by contract, to search for oil deposits.
Receipts from this source in 1942-43, amounting to Gdes. 171,676.24,
were classified as miscellaneous internal revenues.


Miscellaneous Government Receipts
Miscellaneous receipts of the Government totalled Gdes. 458,139.57 in
the fiscal year 1943-44. Returns on investments accounted for Gdes. 199,-
517.90 of the total. The principal source of returns on investments was
the dividend from the Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale
de la Ripublique d'Haiti amounting to Gdes. 150,000. The profits of the
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti are divided as follows: one-
third to the public Treasury, one-third for projects destined to increase
exports and one-third to build up the surplus of the Bank. The dividend
declared in the fiscal year 1943-44 amounted to Gdes. 450,000 and one-
third of this, or Gdes. 150,000, was taken up as miscellaneous receipts of
the 'Government. 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
amortization of Series A and Series C bonds.
Miscellaneous receipts other than returns on investments amounted to
Gdes. 258,621.67 in 1943-44. Of the said amount, some Gdes. 161,000
represented the counter-value of certain deposits maintained with the
National City Bank of New York since 1933 in connection with the
arrangement for the exchange of Series C bonds against bonds of the Na-
tional Railroad Company of Hayti. The legal period allowed for the
exchange operations having expired as of October 1, 1943, the unused ba-
lances in the respective accounts were returned to the Government account.
A further amount of approximately Gdes. 60,000 which was classified as
miscellaneous receipts, represented the market value of certain Series C
bonds which had been set aside but not used for the exchange operations
just mentioned, and which were returned to the Government's account
in the course of the year.

From the above table, it will be seen that expenditures in 1943-44
exceeded those of 1942-43 by Gdes. 13,991,031.48. The various Depart-
ments and Services of the Government increased their expenditures by
Gdes. 4,426,694.14 while payments on account of the public debt rose
by Gdes. 9,564,337.34. It is interesting to note at.this point that in spite
of the large increase in Government expenditures total receipts in 1943-44
exceeded total expenditures by Gdes. 349,351.65.
The sharp increase in expenditures for service of the public debt w'as
primarily due to considerably greater amortization payments in 1943-44
than was the case in 1942-43. During the fiscal year 1942-43, a token
amount of Gdes. 100,000 was paid toward amortization of Series A and
Series C loans whereas in 1943-44 Gdes. 3,750,000 were paid, inclusive
of an amount of Gdes. 2,000,000 representing advance payment on account
of amounts due for the fiscal year 1944-45. Furthermore, during the fiscal
year 1942-43, the schedule covering amortization of the amounts advanced
to the Haitian Government under the Public Works Contract of 1938
called for a payment of only Gdes. 150,000. The new schedule called
for amortization payments in 1943-44 in the amount of Gdes 4,000,000,
which payments were made as and when they fell due. In addition, there
was paid toward the end of 1943-44 the sum of Gdes. 2,000,000 on
account of the amounts due under the Public Works Contract during the





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


fiscal year 1944-45. Total payments on account of the public debt in
1943-44 represented 31.38 per cent of revenue receipts as compared to
11.40 per cent in 1942-43.

Expenditures of Government Departments
Expenditures of the Garde d'Haiti, amounting to Gdes. 7,738,301.06,
were considerably higher than those of any other Department or Service
of the Government and represented an increase of Gdes. 1,142,442.71
over the amount expended from budgetary funds in the preceding year.
During the fiscal year 1943-44, as in the prior year, the Garde d'Haiti
received and expended for national defense purposes certain amounts from
non-fiscal sources. These funds were, for the most part, transferred from
the blocked accounts of enemy nationals.
Disbursements of the Department of Public Works were Gdes. 851,-
265.39 higher than in the fiscal year 1942-43. The principal increase,
amounting to some Gdes. 309,000, occurred under the appropriation for
the lighting of the streets of Port-au-Prince, Petionville and Cap-Haitien.
During the preceding year, due to restrictions on fuel oil, there was no
street lighting whatever in the cities mentioned. At the beginning of the
fiscal year 1943-44, fuel oil in sufficient quantity to meet the needs
of the electric light company serving these cities became available
and the black-out of the streets was discontinued. Hence, the considerably
higher payments for lighting service in the year just ended. Other appro-
priations of the Department of Public Works which recorded increased
expenditures in 1943-44 included those for the maintenance and improve-
ment of the water service, the telephone and telegraph service, public roads,
streets, public buildings and irrigation.
Expenditures of the Public Health Service increased by an amount of
Gdes. 284,687.24 when comparison is made with the 1942-43 disburse-
ments. A considerable portion of the increase occurred under the category
of supplies and materials.
The Department of Public Instruction expended Gdes. 2,739,591.11 in
the fiscal year 1943-44 or Gdes. 319,315.23 over the 1942-43 figure.
Certain salary increases occurred, particularly in the case of rural school
teachers whose scale of pay has been quite low. A program designed to
teach the peasants to read and write in Creole was undertaken in the course
of the year. There was also an expenditure of Gdes. 83,333.30 representing
Haiti's contribution in 1943-44 toward the expense of a program of edu-
cation undertaken on a cooperative basis between the Haitian and American
Governments. This project, which has already been referred to, is treated
in some detail in a subsequent section of this Report.
The Agricultural and Rural Education Service expended an amount of
Gdes. 438,415.73 more than in the fiscal year 1942-43. The increase
included a payment of Gdes. 250,000.00 representing Haiti's contribution
for the year toward a program, to which the Government of the United





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT :.


States has also contributed, for the production of foodstuffs in the Republic
of Haiti. This program together with the Joint Educational Project is
treated in some detail in a subsequent section of this Report.


Department of the Interior
The Department of the Interior disbursed Gdes. 2,276,040.40, or
Gdes. 431,284.07 more than in the preceding year. Additional payments
to the civil representatives of the President of Haiti in six districts of the
Republic accounted for a part of the increase. There was also created in the
course of the year the position of Under-Secretary of State for Justice.
Other appropriations under which increased expenditures were recorded .in
1943-44 included that for secret police whose activities were on a greater
scale because of war conditions, Additional amounts were also expended
in connection with the travel abroad of the President of the Republic and
his suite. In addition to the trip to Canada, the United States and Cuba
already described, there was also an official visit to Venezuela.
The Internal Revenue Service and the Inspection Service expended
Gdes. 1,651,661.41 in 1943-44 or some Gdes. 298,372.38 more than in
the preceding year. The principal increase occurred in connection with the
acquisition of property. The Internal Revenue Service maintains agencies
throughout the Republic, and many of these agencies in the past have been
poorly housed or completely lacking in Government owned quarters. A
program of construction of internal revenue offices was undertaken in the
course of the year. The Internal Revenue Service also completed the cons-
truction of an archives building in Port-au-Prince. Furthermore, certain
auto-motive and office equipment was added to the inventory in 1943-44.
Certain agents of the Internal Revenue Service are allowed percentages of
their collections in lieu of a fixed salary. When receipts are relatively heavy,
as they were in 1943-44, these percentage amounts increase and the pay-
ments which are classified as salaries show a corresponding rise. This rise
accounted for a considerable part of the indicated increase in salary pay-
ments in 1943-44 of some Gdes. 102,000.00. Special remarks relative
to the Inspection Service will be found in a succeeding paragraph.
The budget of the Department of Justice is almost exclusively a budget
covering the salary of the judiciary. The total increase of Gdes. 134,-
666.50 in the expenditures of that Department in 1943-44 is, therefore,
largely explained by additional payments to personnel. Restoration in
1943-44 of the full amounts of the nominal salaries of Government
employees from the reduced levels which, for reasons of economy, had been
fixed in previous years, has already been noted in an earlier paragraph of
this Report. These salary adjustments largely explain the increase in the
expenditures of the Department of Justice as well as of other Departments
and Services of the Government.





BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Expenditures of the Department of Finance rose by some G. 217,000.00
over the 1942-43 disbursements. The Banque Nationale de la Republique
d'Haiti, as treasury agent, receives a commission equivalent to one per cent
of customs and internal revenue receipts provided, however, that the mini-
mum commission may not be less than Gdes 300,000.00 per year and the
maximum commission may not exceed Gdes, 500,000.00 per year. The
said commission totalled Gdes. 414,676.05 in the year just ended and
Gdes. 309,831.35 in the preceding year. The increase of some Gdes.
105,000.00, therefore, accounted for a considerable part of the total
increase in the disbursements of the Department of Finance. The amount
of claims paid also rose and pension payments were greater than in the
preceding year.
The expenditures of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Natlo-
nale de la Republique d'Haiti increased by Gdes. 79,226.80. Further
remarks will be made relative to these expenditures in the succeeding sub-
section.
The expenditures of the Department of Foreign Affairs were almost
Identical for 1943-44 and the prior fiscal year, a decline of only G. 316.43
having been recorded.
The Department of Religion was the only other Department which
showed lesser expenditures in 1943-44 than in the preceding year. The
decline in the case of this Department amounted to some Gdes. 11'6,000.
In the course of the prior year, certain extraordinary appropriations were
opened and expended for the construction and repair of churches. No
expenditure of this nature was effected in 1943-44.
The Department of Commerce and National Economy in 1943-44
continued to expand the activities of certain war emergency Services, such
as tire rationing and price control, set up during the previous fiscal year.
The volume of mail, particularly parcel post, increased during the jear
and payments to the overseas carriers increased sharply. Furthermore, the
sum of Gdes. 90,000 was expended in the course of the year in the con-
struction of a post-office building at Cap-Haitien. These activities, com-
bined, explain in large part the total increase of Gdes. 305,413.10 in the
expenditures of the Department of Commerce and National Economy.
Expenditures on account of International Institutions rose by Gdes. 36,-
213.95 and those of the Department of Agriculture and Labor increased
by Gdes. 4,739.22.

Banque Nationale de la R1publique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department :
The expenses of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la
Republique d'Haiti, which includes the Customs Administration and the
Central Accounting Service of the Government, amounted to Gdes. 977,-

Customs operations in 1943-44, particularly at Port-au-Prince, were
on a considerably greater scale than in the preceding year and it became
necessary in the course of the year to employ additional personnel. Pay-
ments to such personnel, as well as salary increases granted in the course
of the year, accounted for the rise in expenditures for salaries of some
Gdes. 38,000. The increase in expenditures for supplies and materials and
transportation reflects the increase in the volume of business handled by
the Customs Administration in the year. It is in order, too, to remark here
that the development of air transportation has created a set of entirely new
problems for the Customs Administration. In the past, customs activities
were localized on wharves and on premises contiguous to the Port. Further-
more, arrivals and departures of vessels were, relatively, infrequent occur-
rences. Today, at Airfield and Seabase, the former located at a great distance
from the Custom House, there are frequent arrivals and departures of air
and seaplanes during both the day and night. Provision of transportation
for sufficient inspectors to handle this traffic is only one of the new
problems, which the development of air transportation has created for the
Customs Service. In 1942-43, rentals of customs premises exceeded rentals
paid for privately owned properties occupied by the Customs Service by
Gdes. 35,781.94. The excess of rents collected in 1943-44 over the
amount expended in rents was only Gdes. 1.988.33.
Relatively little new equipment was added to the inventory of the
organization in the course of the year, only Gdes. 3,695.43 having been
expended for this purpose. However, under an extraordinary appropriation
opened in favor of the Department of Finance, certain improvements to
the customs properties at Port-au-Prince were carried out during the year.
These included the conversion into an enclosed warehouse with cement
floor of a large shed in the customs yard erected in 1942, at the expense
of. the United States Government, to accommodate goods destined for
Puerto-Rico under a war-time scheme whereby the United States would
supply foodstuffs to Puerto-Rico by a land and sea route through the


*Credit.






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Caribbean Islands. The recent improvements included also the paving of
a large section of the Customs yard which is used as temporary storage
space at the moment of delivery of duty-paid merchandise to the importers.
Expenditures for these purposes under the extraordinary appropriation in
question amounted to Gdes. 36,806.80.

Pension Plans for Employees
In the course of the year, the Haitian employees of the Fiscal Depart-
ment of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti were authorized
by law to participate in the general pension plan covering employees of the
Haitian Government, with the understanding that there would be paid into
the pension fund of the Government an amount representing the usual
contributions foreseen by the pension legislation which had accrued in the
case of each employee but which had not previously been paid. For this
purpose; there was turned over to the pension account of the Government
the sum of Gdes. 112,878.38 representing the balance of a special account
established in 1941 with funds received from the office of the Fiscal
Representative when that office was abolished. In order to complete
payments to the Government pension fund for the account of the Haitian
employees of the Fiscal Department, there was paid in the course of the
year to the pension account a further sum of Gdes. 45,000, which was
charged to the operating account of the Inspection Service.
In addition to the law authorizing the Haitian personnel of the Fiscal
Department to benefit from the pension plan of the Government, action was
also taken in 1943-44, by virtue of a decision of the Board of Directors
- the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti, to provide for certain
non-Haitian members of the staff who have had long service with the
Fiscal Administration of Haiti, under the terms of the pension plan of the
Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti.
A payment of Gdes. 15,309.00 to the Commercial Department of the
BNRH, which was classified as expenditures,
plus a payment of Gdes. 2,916.00 under the budget of the Inspection
Service, represented the first contribution of the Fiscal Department to the
pension fund of the Commercial Department for account of the five non-
Haitian members of the organization who took advantage of the autho-
rization to participate in the pension plan. Contributions to the fund are
now made monthly by the Fiscal Department and by the individuals
concerned.
Inspection Service
The operating fund of the Inspection Service in 1943-44, as in past
periods, was derived from an allowance of five per cent of all internal
revenues collected. These accruals amounted to Gdes. 524,436.11 in
1943-44 while expenditures totalled only Gdes. 247,127.24. The ba-
lance of Gdes. 277,307.87 was returned to the public Treasury at the
close of the year.

Expenditures for salaries, supplies and transportation were almost
identical during the two years. Due to the replacement of some of the
automobiles used by the Inspectors as well as to the acquisition of certain
office equipment, such as adding machines, disbursements for equipment
rose from Gdes. 9,810.31 in 1942-43 to Gdes. 28,439.91 in 1943-44.
Expenditures on account of repairs, primarily to residences maintained
in certain districts outside of Port-au-Prince, amounted to Gdes. 4,069.82
as compared with Gdes. 25,632.85 in the prior year. Miscellaneous ex-
penditures of the Inspection Service rose sharply in 1943-44. Of the total
of Gdes. 49,340.20, Gdes. 45,000 covered a payment to the pension fund
of the Haitian Government and Gdes. 2,916.00 represented a payment to
the pension fund of the Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale
de la Ripublique d'Haiti, as described in preceding paragraphs.

Treasury Position

Government receipts in 1943-44 amounted to Gdes. 42,370,364.75
while expenditures totalled Gdes. 42,021,013.10. Both of these figures are
higher than the corresponding amounts for any year since 1928-29. The
unobligated surplus as of September 30, 1944 amounted to Gdes. 4,778,-
245.14. The year-end unobligated balance has not been so high since

All interest payments for the year on the outstanding indebtedness of
the Republic were met in full.
Under the terms of the Agreement reached between the Haitian and the
United States Governments in October 1943, the sum of Gdes. 1,750,000
was paid towards amoritzation of the 1922 loans. The corresponding
payment in the prior year amounted to Gdes. 100,000. There was also
paid toward the end of 1943-44 the sum of Gdes. 2,000,000 representing
an advance on the amounts due toward amortization of the Series A and
Series C bonds in the fiscal year 1944-45.
The October 1943 Agreement, referred to above, also provided for a
payment in 1943-44 totaling Gdes. 4,000,000 toward amortization of
the advances received under the Public Works Contract of 1938. The said
payments were made when due and, in addition, a further amount of
Gdes. 2,000,000 was paid toward the end of the year as an advance on
the amounts scheduled for payment in the fiscal year 1944-45.

The Budget
Expenditures during the first few weeks of 1943-44 were made in
conformity with the provisional budget published in the "Moniteur" of
May 27, 1943, which carried authorizations to the total amount of
Gdes. 27,528,000. The definitive budget for the year was published in
the "Moniteur" of November 15, 1943 and authorized expenditures of
Gdes. 31,850,000, which corresponded to the estimate of ways and means.
However, as the year progressed and as receipts considerably exceeded
expectations, it was found necessary or desirable to appropriate further sums
for expenditure from the treasury surplus. Included in the amounts made
available for expenditure during the year by means of supplementary appro-
priations was the sum of Gdes. 8,207,500 for service of the public debt.
The following table shows that total expenditure authorizations for
1943-44 amounted to Gdes. 42,802,092.37 while total expenditures
reached Gdes. 42,021,013.10.

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The budget of the fiscal year 1944-45 published in the "Moniteur" of
September 28, 1944, No. 80, provided for receipts and authorized expen-
ditures to the amount of Gdes. 35,991,000.00.

Banking and Currency
Haiti is served by two banks, the Banque Nationale de la Republique
d'Haiti 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 R6publique d'Haiti, besides its headquarters office
at Port-au-Prince, maintains branches and agencies at the eleven other open
ports of the Republic. In addition to the ordinary commercial operations,
the Banque Nationale is the Government bank of issue and the sole deposit-
ory 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 1943-44 totalling Gdes. 8,145,101.87 as compared
with Gdes. 8,506,563.81 in the preceding fiscal year.
Bank deposits showed a sharp increase in 1943-44. Excluding Govern-
ment accounts, deposits averaged Gdes. 31,389,973.98 in 1943-44 as
compared with Gdes. 24,214,759.22 in 1942-43 and Gdes. 15,271,-
935.52 during 1941-42.
Currency circulation on September 30, 1944 and on the same date of
the previous year are shown in the table below:

In the course of the fiscal year 1942-43, considerable sums of United
States currency were imported for account of he Socikti Ha'itiano-Ambri-
caine de Dlveloppement Agricole (SHADA). This currency was used
primarily to meet the large labor payrolls of the said company, which was
engaging in the production of rubber and other strategic materials. Its
importation in-$1 and $2 bills and 1 cent and 5 cent pieces, the latter
totalling some $40,000, was made necessary by the Bank's inability to
obtain delivery of new gourde notes and fractional currency.
As stated in a previous paragraph of this Report, SHADA was re-
organized towards the end of the fiscal year 1943-44 and the company's
activities were, in consequence, greatly reduced. The reduction in employ-
ment by SHADA was reflected in the decline in the currency circulation
as of September 30, 1944.

Inclusive of United States dollars, total currency in circulation at the
end of the past ten fiscal years has been estimated as follows:

The upward trend of. gourde note circulation during recent years reflects
increased employment following intergovernmental. arrangements for the
joint execution of development programs as well as rising conimodity
prices.

It is interesting to note that average monthly deposits in banks in Haiti,
exclusive of'Government deposits, have been as follows during the past
five years: ..

1943-44.................................. 31,389,973.98

The figures are a yard stick by which the growth of Haiti's war-time.
prosperity may be measured.

Supply Service

SThe Central Supply Office known as the "Bureau de Fournitures"
continued, in 1943-44 as a division of the Banque Nationale de la REpu-
blique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department, to furnish stationery, office supplies
and equipment to the several Departments and Services of the Haitian
Government. In spite of the various licensing restrictions on exports from.
the United States and transportation difficulties, the Bureau was able.
to maintain fairly adequate stocks of the various supplies required by the
Government offices.





S REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT* :


During the course of the year, Mr. W. J. Matthie, who had been in
charge of the Bureau de Fournitures since its organization some twenty-
five years ago, retired from service. As of April 18, 1944, the Bureau was
reorganized under the direction of one of the Haitian employees of the
Fiscal Department, Mr. Georges Beaulieu, who, since 1925, had served as
a member of the Comptroller's Office.
The Mohegan Trading Corporation of New York City continued to act
as Purchasing Agent of the Haitian Government ini the United States
during 1943-44 and, in that 'capacity, executed orders -placed- by the
"Bureau de Fournitures".
The profit and loss statement of the "Bureau de Fournitures" for the
fiscal year 1943-44 appears in Table No. 46, while the balance sheet as of
September 30, 1944, is carried in Table No. 47.

i : Communal Accounts
The decree-law of September 29, 1941, provided that the budgets'of
ways and means and the budgets of expenditures of the Communes will be
prepared by the Department of the Interior in agreement with the Banqiie
National de la Republique d'Haiti. The said decree-law also provided that
.the receipts.of the Communes will be collected, classified, expended ard
.accounted for in conformity with the provisions of the Law on the Budget
.and Public Accounting relative to non-fiscal receipts. In consequence,
special accounts covering receipts and expenditures of each of the various
Communes of the Republic have been maintained in the Accounting Office
:of the: Fiscal Department, BNRH, since the beginning of the fiscal year
1941-42. Table No. 54 shows the receipts, expenditures and surplus of
:.each of the Communes for the fiscal year 1943-44. It is interesting to
:,record at this point a general statement of receipts, expenditures and surplus
during the three years that the communal accounts' have been subject to
the general budgetary and accounting regulations:

The decree-law of December 23, 1942, provided for the transfer of the
surplus of receipts over expenditures of all the Communes, as of the end
of each fiscal year, to a special non fiscal account "Reserve for Communal
Welfare Projects and Extraordinary Expenses". Under the decree-law,
the Secretary of State for the Interior, in agreement with the Secretary of
State for Finance and the Board of Directors of the Banque Nationale de la
R6publique d'Haiti, submitted the various projects to the Council of the
Secretaries of State for approval.


*Including Gdes. 39.330.82 from previous periods.

Haitian Trade Values Increase

The value of Haitian imports and exports rose sharply in 1943-44 due
largely to higher price levels prevailing. Total trade values for the past
nine years and the respective trade balances are shown in the following

' REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


It is of interest that in 1943-44 Haitian exports exceeded imports for
the third consecutive year. Only once before, since the present method of
compiling trade statistics was instituted, have exports exceeded imports
for more than one year at a time; this was in 1932-33 and 1933-34 when
for two consecutive years an export balance was recorded. Over a :period
of years, export and import balances have alternated with some regularity
although import balances have out-numbered the export balances recorded
and the total shows an excess of imports (see Table No. 1).

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 years 1943-44 and 1942-43:
1943-44 1942-43

War conditions have tended to increase the importance of Mexico as a
source of supply for Haitian imports. Cotton textiles are the chief item
in this trade. Argentina has been shipping increased amounts of soap and
foodstuffs to Haiti. Principal imports from the British Commonwealth
consisted of jute bags from British India and soap from'Canada. Imports
from the Netherlands consisted principally of fuel and lubricating oils,
gasoline and kerosene from Curagao.

The increased import values shown above were due, in most instances,

flour, soap, textiles, shown in the above table, may be taken as an indica-
tion of the extent to which living costs have risen.

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Percentage of Imports by Ports
S The following table shows the percentage of Haitian imports, by ports
of entry, for the past three fiscal years:
1: 1943-44 1942-43 1941-42
Per cent Per cent Per cent
Port-au-Prince ................ 86.82 93.74 85.96

Other ports ...................... 0.22 0.43 2.84
L. 100.00 100.00 100.00

S As will be noted from the above table, the percentage of imports entering
u. through Port-au-Prince decreased from 93.74 per cent in 1942-43 to
S86.82 per cent during 1943-44. This decrease may be attributed, largely,
2.1 to the fact that special transit facilities were offered to importers, enabling
them to czar through the customs at outlying ports merchandise entering
6. Haiti at Port-au-Prince. However, owing to improved shipping facilities,
a small percentage of imports was actually entered at ports other than
Port-au-Prince.


), Percentage of Exports by Countries of Destination
The percentage of Haitian exports taken by the various countries of
destination including colonies, dependencies and dominions during the
fiscal years 1942-43 and 1943-44 is shown below:
id 1943-44 1942-43
Per cent Per cent

Colombia ................................ 6.05 3.89
All other ................................ 4.47 2.52
100.00 100.00

The sudden drop in the proportionate share of Haitian exports taken
by the United States during 1943-44, as compared with 1942-43, does
not indicate that imports of Haitian products into the Unites States
decreased during the year under review. As a matter of fact, both the
volume and value of Haitian exports to the United States were greater in
1943-44 than in 1942-43. The explanation of the decline in the percen-
r tage of Haitian exports taken by the United States lies in the fact that
:nt unusually large shipments of Haitian sugar, representing nearly two years'
)rt production, were shipped to the British Commonwealth during 1943-44.
lea Haitian exports to Colombia were almost exclusively cotton shipments.
ica Haitian cotton valued at Gdes. 4,871,525 was shipped to Colombia during
1943-44 as compared with shipments valued at Gdes. 2,061,360 in
1942-43.

The first signs of recovery in banana exports-which in 1942-43,
because of the shipping shortage, had come almost to a complete standstill,
-were noted a few months before the opening of the fiscal year under

bananas were exported in increasing volume. Furthermore, twice during the

year, the Standard Fruit & Steamship Co. increased the price paid to the
peasant per standard stem of bananas. According to information supplied
by the Company, the price was increased from Gdes. 2.10 to Gdes. 2.50
on April 1, 1944 and on June 1, 1944 it was still further raised from
Gdes. 2.50 to Gdes. 3.25. It is of interest to note, here, that during the
last month of the fiscal year under review, independent operators were
authorized, under certain conditions, to export bananas rejected by the
Standard Fruit Company. Prior to that time, there had been no export
of bananas from Haiti except for such as were exported by the Standard
Fruit Company under the terms of its contract with the Haitian Govern-
ment. The new ruling facilitating the export, by independent operators,
of bananas rejected by the Standard Fruit Company was, however, enacted
too late in 1944 to have been a factor in the increase on the value of banana
exports for the fiscal year ended September 30th.
The decline in sisal exports was due to the decline in the production of
fibre by the Dauphin plantation. It is believed that other Haitian producers
actually increased their output in 1943-44. The decline in the production
by Dauphin has been attributed to the fact that spare parts and supplies
were very difficult to obtain immediately after the declaration of war and
that, as a consequence, mechanical cultivation in 1942 and 1943 was
greatly reduced. Other contributing causes were the reduction of hand
cultivation and reduced productivity of the soil. Most of the new areas
planted by Dauphin under the war program had not come into bearing
before the end of the fiscal year under review.

Handicraft Exports Increase
Exports of sisal handbags, mahogany ware, palm leaf braid and other
products of Haitian small industry have shown a very marked expansion
during recent years. These products, for which there appears to be a
steadily growing demand abroad, are, year ,by year, assuming increased
importance in Haitian economy. It is not thought, however, that the very
marked increase shown in the above table, in exports of these products, in
1943-44 as compared with 1942-43, represents industrial expansion alone.
It should be recalled that, as of August 1943, steps were taken to have
Parcel Post shipments declared for Customs purposes. Prior to that time
export statistics did not include the value of Parcel Post shipments and a
percentage, presumably large, of exports of sisal hand bags and other pro-
ducts of Haitian small industry were shipped abroad by Parcel Post. Last
year's Annual Report, commenting on this change in the method of com-
piling statistics stated "the figures for future years should show a marked
increase" over 1942-43. It seems in order to recall the foregoing in connec-
tion with the comparative statistics presented above.

is shown i'n the following table:

Sie. ........ .......'.............. 0.19 0.08

A balance of 0.08 per cent of total exports, valued at Gdes. 66,465,
was shipped through one of the frontier custom houses.

:Port-au-Prince has always been the principal outlet for Haitian exports.
Prior to 1942-43, however, considerably less than 50 per cent of export
commodities was cleared through that port. Lack of shipping during
1942-43 increased concentration of exports at Port-au-Prince to 70.31
per cent of the total. Increased shipping facilities during 1943-44, how-
ever, reduced the percentage of exports passing through Port-au-Prince to
63.09 per cent. As additional shipping gradually becomes available, the
percentage of exports cleared through ports other than Port-au-Prince will,
presumably, increase over the 1943-44 figures.

As will be seen from the above table, the price received for Haitian cotton
in 1943-44 was higher than for any year since 1936-37.
Principal countries of destination for Haitian cotton were Colombia and
Cuba, the former taking 88.91%0 and the latter 11.08% of total Haitian
exports of this commodity.

Sugar exports during 1943-44 were the largest recorded since the present
system of compiling statistics was instituted. It should be noted that the
77,384,528 kilos of Haitian sugar exported during the year under review
included a carry-over from the previous crop of 36,046,258 kilos.

Banana Exports
Increased shipping facilities in 1943-44 made possible a substantial
recovery in the banana export business. It is of interest that the value of








BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


banana exports in 1943-44 was greater than the value recorded for 1940-
41 although the number of stems shipped in 1943-44 was smaller than
in the earlier year.

The fact that bananas were shipped through a much greater number
of Haitian ports in 1943-44 than during the previous year reflects the
improvement in shipping conditions.

Volume and Value of Exports

commodities, for fiscal year 1943-44 compared with 1942-43:

The very large increases in both the volume and value of sugar and
banana exports from Haiti in 1943-44 merit special notice.

Air Transport Gains
The use of air transport facilities for both passenger and freight traffic
has greatly increased, during recent years, as a result of war conditions.
As of the beginning of the fiscal year under review, the Haitian Customs
Service which maintains inspectors at Airport and Seabase instituted a








REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


system for the compilation of statistics showing the number of airplanes
entering and leaving Haiti, and the number of passengers and air express
parcels carried by these planes.
Statistics showing the growth of this traffic published in previous
Annual Reports were compiled with the help of the single commercial
Service which, prior to the autumn of 1943, operated in Haiti. With the
entry of other companies into the Haitian air transport field, however,
a change in the method of gathering air transport statistics has seemed
justified.
Because of this change, the figures given below are not comparable with
those published in previous Annual Reports. It is believed, however, that
the new method constitutes an improvement over the earlier system, and
that, over a period of years, it will prove its value.

Air Traffic and Statistics

Number of airplanes landing in and leaving Haiti........... 3,225 1,334
Number of passengers (Incoming).................................. 4,434 1,542

Number of Air Express
Packages (Incoming).................................................... 5,976 2,216
Number of Air Express
Packages (Outgoing).................................................... 1,752 1,506

The average number of airplanes landing in and leaving Haiti in 1943-
44 was, roughly, 9 a day.

Maritime Traffic Increases
Detailed discussion of maritime traffic and of trade in terms of volume -
has been suppressed in recent Annual Reports as a matter of war-time
policy. It is believed, however, that publication of information of this
sort can now, properly, be resumed.
The following table shows the number and net tonnage of vessels
entering Haitian ports during the last five years:

Tonnage Entering Haitian'Ports
Number of
Fiscal year Vessels Net Tonnage
1939-40.............................. 498 1,412,023
1940-41 ............................... 442 1,253,681

1942-43.............................. 211 159,011
1943-44.............................. 566 206,193

The above figures clearly show the impact of war on traffic movements
in Haitian Ports.
The extent of the decline in the total tonnage entered during the war
years is striking. Equally interesting, however, is the fact that, notwith-
standing the tonnage decline, the number of vessels entered in 1943-44
was actually greater than in the pre-war years listed. War exigencies have








BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


drawn away the larger vessels which formerly served the needs of Haitian
trade and smaller craft, operating in larger number, have attempted to take
their place. (Table No. 9, annexed to this Report, gives further details of
maritime traffic in 1943-44.)

Control of Coastwise Traffic
Registration of all vessels engaged in Haitian coastwise trade was under-
taken, as a war emergency measure, in the autumn of 1942. Since that
time the process has been continued. It has proved its usefulness and it is
planned that the system which provides for the keeping of accurate records
with respect to each vessel, its owner and crew, will become a permanent
feature of the administration of Haitian ports.
Each vessel engaged in Haitian coastwise trade and registered with the
port authorities has been given an identifying number, and this number
has been prominently painted on the sail and on the hull. The total number
of vessels so registered and numbered as of the end of the fiscal year 1943-44
was 705 as compared with 348 at the end of the previous fiscal year.
Special attention has been given by the Port authorities to the problem
of increasing the safety of persons traveling on these small vessels. Un-
fortunately, the mortality continues high. During the fiscal year under
review, 19 Haitian merchant vessels were wrecked and 24 persons lost
thei i'ives;in these accidents. During the previous fiscal period 34'vessels
were wrecked and 26 deaths resulted from the accidents. It is believed
that accidents at sea are now reported very much more regularly and fully
than in the past and that the safety campaign has produced somewhat better
results than the figures quoted above would indicate.

Private Building Activity
The number of private residences which have been built during the
war years in Port-au-Prince and in the nearby mountain resorts of Petion-
ville and Kenscoff bear material witness to an improvement in economic
conditions in Haiti.
According to figures supplied by the Department of Public Works, during
the course of 1943-44, a total of 159 private building permits for an
estimated value of Gdes. 2,864,600 was issued at Port-au-Prince. At
Pitionville, which is situated at only some eight kilometers from Port-au-
Prince and which, being linked to the Capital by an improved highway,
is today practically a part of the city, a total of 29 private building permits
for an estimated value-of Gdes. 725,000 was issued.

American Sanitary Mission
Activities of the American Sanitary Mission which operates in con-
junction with the "Service National d'Hygiene Publique" have been
discussed in previous Annual Reports.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


On September 30, 1944, the American Sanitary Mission completed its
twenty-eighth month of health and sanitation work in Haiti. For the
twelve-month period preceding the date mentioned, the work of the
Mission included:
Malaria control projects at Jacmel, Gonai'ves, Cap-Haitien,
Aux Cayes, Port-de-Paix, Port-au-Prince.
An anti-yaws campaign with clinics operating at Gressier,
Cayes-Jacmel, C6tes de Fer, Savane Zombi and Kenscoff. A total
of 281,850 treatments were given.
Community Sanitation at Petit-Goave, Jacmel, Cap-Haitien
and Port-au-Prince. In addition, sanitary sewage disposal sys-
tems were installed in a number of schools and other institutions.
A malaria health education program in the schools of Port-
au-Prince.
The construction of a Health Center at Cite Vincent, Port-au-
Prince, and a Maternity Ward at the Aux Cayes Hospital.
A cooperative program with Damien for immunization of
farm animals against hog cholera and anthrax.
A training program for Haitian public health workers by
which eight doctors and six sanitary engineers were sent to
American Universities for graduate study and eleven sanitary
inspectors were sent to the School of Public Health, University
of Puerto Rico, for training.
The value to Haiti of this joint cooperative effort may be readily deter-
mined from the foregoing brief survey of activities.

Cooperative Educational Program
A program providing for joint Haitian-American action to improve
educational facilities in Haiti was embodied in an Agreement signed on
April 30, 1944, by the Haitian Government and the Inter-American
Educational Foundation, Inc., a United States Government Agency.
The Agreement provides, among other things, that the Inter-American
Educational Foundation, Inc., will supply, at the request of the Haitian
Secretary of State for Public Instruction a group of specialists in education
to carry out the program. The Agreement further provides that scholar-
ships will be granted to Haitian specialists in education; that educational
needs and facilities in Haiti will be studied; that the development, adapta-
tion, and exchanges of adequate educational material, particularly pictorial
education, will be undertaken.
The Government of Haiti and the Inter-American Educational Foundation
will each bear a share of the cost of executing the program under a contract
which calls for a total payment of $50,000 by the Haitian Government
and $147,000 by the Inter-American Educational Foundation. With a
view to meeting Haiti's-share of the total cost an extraordinary credit'of






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Gdes. 83,333.00 was voted by the Haitian Government on April 28,
1944, and on July 27, 1944, a further extraordinary credit of G. 5,000.00
was voted for this program. As of September 30, 1944, three specialists
in education had arrived in Haiti in connection with the execution of this
joint program.

To Stimulate Foodstuffs Production
Relief from the unfavorable effect of war conditions on Haitian agri-
culture was the purpose of a joint Foodstuffs production program embodied
in an Agreement signed on August 28, 1944, by the Haitian Government
and the Institute of Inter-American Affairs, a United States Government
Agency. The Agreement was published in the "Moniteur" No. 73 dated
September 4, 1944.
The Agreement provides that seeds, cuttings, agricultural implements
and insecticides will be supplied to Haitian agriculturists. It further pro-
vides for the establishment of silos for storing and preserving foodstuffs
in the country; for training Haitian agricultural personnel; for giving
advice and technical assistance to Government and other agricultural
workers with a view to increasing the production of foodstuffs.
The Agreement provides that the Haitian and American Governments
shall, each, bear a proportionate share of the cost of executing the pro-
gram, the share of the United States being fixed at $125,000 and that of
Haiti at $50,000. With a view to meeting its share of the cost, the Haitian
Government by decree of September 6, 1944, voted an extraordinary credit
of Gdes. 250,000.00.

Petroleum Exploration Work Continued
Exploratory work was carried forward on several properties in 1944,
by the Atlantic Refining Company which controls approximately 500,000
acres of concessions in Haiti. In addition to a considerable amount of core
drilling for geological information, the company initiated a deep test
program early in 1944 and these operations were carried forward con-
tinuously throughout the fiscal year under review.
The first deep test well was started in January on the Jurinet Dome in
the central plain area, near the town of Hinche, about 150 miles by road
from Port-au-Prince via Gonaives. Well Jurinet No. 1 was carried to a
depth of 7,005 feet where it was abandoned in August, 1944. Thereafter
the rig was moved several miles south to a location on the Maissade
anticline.
Core drilling work was started in January, 1944, in the St.-Marc area,
along the west coast, about 60 miles north-west of Port-au-Prince. Six
holes were drilled in this region varying in depth from 450 to 800 feet.
In April this rig was moved to the Cul-de-Sac Valley, a few miles from
Port-au-Prince. The core drilling program which was designed to secure
stratigraphic information and outline structure in the areas mentioned was






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


reported towards the year end as having produced quite satisfactory results.
At that time it was planned to continue the work in the Cul-de-Sac Valley
for several months in the year 1945.

Bauxite Mining
Bauxite was discovered in Haiti in July, 1943, by geologists of the
.Reynolds Mining Corporation. An exploratory campaign, inaugurated
immediately thereafter, was carried forward rapidly during the following
six months.
By contract dated February 8, 1944, sanctioned by law No. 34, February
11, 1944, published in the "Moniteur" of the 24th of February 1944, the
exclusive right was accorded the corporation to explore and exploit, in
certain areas and under the conditions stipulated in said contract, bauxite
and all other minerals which contain or may contain aluminium.
In execution of the terms of this contract, bauxite exploration develop-
ment and engineering work was carried forward by the Reynolds Mining
Corporation throughout the fiscal year 1943-44.

Cotton Textile Mill for Haiti Planned
Establishment by a Haitian company of a cotton textile mill in Haiti
was formally sanctioned by decree-law of July 28, 1944 published .in
the "Moniteur" No. 64, dated August 3, 1944.
Plans call for the use, primarily, of Haitian cotton in the factory
although, under certain conditions, the use of other native fibers is also
foreseen as well as the possible importation of raw materials. Haitian labor
of both sexes will be employed in the factory, although provision is also
made for the employment, for a time, of non-Haitian technicians. Execu-
tion of the plans must be begun within one year following promulgation
of the law and the machinery and equipment to be used in the factory,
must be installed within two years following the date of promulgation
of the law.
The Haitian Government, on its side, undertakes to grant certain pri-
vileges to the company. If excise taxes, for example, are levied on the
factory's products, such taxes shall not exceed one-quarter of the customs
duties applied to similar imported products. The factory's products will
be exempted from payment of export taxes. Apparatus, machinery and
building material-destined for use in the factory will be imported duty
free.
Cotton textiles normally make up a very large proportion of total
imports into Haiti. During the past two years, duties collected on such
imports have represented approximately one third of total import revenues.
It may be expected, therefore, that the production of cotton textiles, locally,
under preferential conditions, will, ultimately, involve important readjust-
ments in the economic structure of Haiti.





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Conclusion
The fiscal year 1943-44 was characterized by a gradual change in public
opinion from lingering uncertainty regarding the possible effects of the war
on Haiti's economy to optimism regarding the future.
Foreign trade and fiscal results for the year seem fully to have justified
the better sentiment which prevailed. In fact, there appears now to be a
danger that import and export values, unequalled for fifteen years or more,
combined with a continued rise in prices and the continued availability of
markets and sources of supply may induce over-optimism and blind public
opinion to certain dangers inherent in the situation.
It is true that, at the time of writing, there appears to be no reason for
anticipating any immediate reversal of prevailing trends. The restoration
of so-called "normal" trade conditions may well prove to be a lengthy
matter. On the other hand, the fact remains that improved trade and
fiscal conditions in 1943-44 were due to factors arising out of the war.
They were neither the result of healthy growth nor of normal development.
The decision taken in 1944 to abandon the program designed to produce
rubber from cryptostegia, which involved the sudden stoppage of the
flow of substantial amounts of foreign, capital into Haiti, served to empha-
size the artificial character of the year's prosperity. Recognition of the fact
that events abroad may have sudden and direct repercussions in Haiti
should serve to counteract the tendency towards over-optimism.
With this reservation, the increase in foreign trade values; the improve-
ment in revenue collections; the strengthening of the Treasury position;
the substantial reduction of the external debt and the general improvement
in business conditions which occurred in Haiti in 1943-44, are reported
with satisfaction. Belief that present favorable conditions will continue into
1944-45 appears, at the moment, to be justified.
