ANNUAL REPORT

of the

FISCAL DEPARTMENT

covering the fiscal year

OCTOBER 1944 SEPTEMBER 1945


Port-au-Prince, Haiti, December 19, 1945.
To the
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE
BAN JE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI.

Sirs:
There is presented herewith the Annual I'clort of the Banque Natio-
nale de la Republique d'Ha'iti, Fiscal Department, for the fiscal year ended
September 30, 1945.
The Annual Reports of the Fiscal Department are distributed abroad
both in French and in English. They thus constitute a ready source of
reference regarding economic conditions in Haiti. For this reason, the Fiscal
Department, in addition to reporting routine operations, usually includes
in the Reports certain items of general economic interest not directly related
to the work of the Department. The practice has this year, once again,
been followed.
The fiscal year 1944-45 was one of continued trade expansion and
increasing prosperity for Haiti.
Export values soared to levels which had not been reached since 1927-28.
Imports, meanwhile, declined from the figure recorded for 1943-44, and
as a result, a substantial export balance was built up.
Bank deposits showed a sharp increase in 1944-45 and currency circula-
tion also rose.
Total revenue receipts were somewhat lower in 1944-45 than during
the previous year. Import duty collections normally make up a large part
of total Haitian Government revenue, and the decline in total receipts in
1944-45 is, presumably, attributable, in part, to the decline in import
values, already mentioned, and the consequent reduction in import duty
collections. Internal revenue receipts in 1944-45 again established an all-





BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


time high record, the figure of income tax collections, in particular, having
shown a sharp rise.
It would appear, from the foregoing, that the war and its aftermath
have served to stimulate commercial and financial activity in Haiti, general-
ly. Almost all indices now show conditions greatly improved as compared
with those which existed during the years immediately preceding the out-
break of war.
In the following paragraphs, detailed figures will be presented to substan-
tiate the statements made above.

Government Receipts
Total revenue receipts during the fiscal year 1944-45 amounted to
Gdes.* 41,890,043.22 or Gdes. 480,321.53 (1.1 per cent) less than the
amount collected in the previous year. Although receipts for the year
recorded a slight decline from those of the previous year, they may be
considered as satisfactory since they were considerably above the annual
average, and, with the exception of the fiscal year 1943-44, were the
highest since 1928-29.
The following table shows a comparison between receipts collected from
all sources during the fiscal year 1944-45 and those collected in the pre-
ceding year:
SOURCES RECEIPTS
1944-45 1943-44
Gourdes Per cent Gourdes Per cent
Customs
Import duties ................. 22,656,899.51 54.1 24,504,201.39 57.8
Export duties .................... 7,655,865.15 18.3 6,423,125.74 15.2
Miscellaneous ................... 239,836.60 0.5 51,555.66 0.1
Total Customs ................ 30,552,601.26 72.9 30,978,882.79 73.1
Internal Revenues ............... 10,549,527.99 25.2 10,488,722.10 24.8
Miscellaneous Government
Receipts .............................. 337,339.43 0.8 458,139.57 1.1
Receipts from Communes........ 450,574.54 1.1 444,620.29 1.0
Total Revenues .............. 41,890,043.22 100.0 42,370,364.75 100.0
From the above percentage columns it will be seen that receipts from
customs sources accounted for practically the same proportion of total
revenues in the two years although export duties and miscellaneous customs
receipts rose while import duties declined. Internal revenue and other
receipts showed little change from those of the previous year.

Customs Collections
Total receipts from customs sources amounted to Gdes. 30,552,601.26,
or 72.9 per cent of all Government collections. Import duties declined
almost Gdes. 2,000,000 from the amount collected from this source

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




REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 3

in the previous year. This decline was certainly not due to shortage
of purchasing power. It is believed that considerable purchasing power still
remains in the hands of the population from capital expenditures made
in the country in recent years, particularly by the Rubber Reserve Board
and by the SociWti Haitiano-Americaine de Developpement Agricole
(SHADA). Furthermore, the favorable trade balance for 1944-45 amount-
ed to the considerable sum of Gdes. 19,791,970. The decline in imports
and in the revenues derived therefrom is thought to have resulted from
the inability of local importers to satisfy the demand for foreign goods
due to war-time restrictions and, possibly, to some overstocking in the
previous year in such articles as cotton goods.
The principal sources of import revenues, in order of yield and compared
with those collected in the previous year, were as follows:

Duties on imported flour appear to have reached an all-time high in
1944-45 and, for the first time, exceeded the amount collected on cotton
goods. It will be seen from the above table that the duties on flour
were well above the 1943-44 figures. Those on cotton goods declined
by approximately 50 per cent when comparison is made with the 1943-44
import revenue figures.
Export Revenues
Export revenues by sources were as follows in 1944-45 and 1943-44:


1944-45
Gourdes Per cent
Coffee ............................. 6,483,565 84,69
Sugar ............................. 553,658 7.23

172,892 2.69

6,423,125 100.00




BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Export duties are principally derived from the specific duties collected
on coffee. These duties accounted for 84.69 per cent of all export revenues
in the fiscal year 1944-45 as compared with 78.09 per cent in the prior
year. The rise of Gdes. 1,468,106 or 29.4 per-cent resulted from the
increase in the volume of coffee exports which amounted to 29,968,230
kilos in 1944-45 and 23,116,197 kilos in 1943-44.

The export duty rate on sugar was increased toward the end of the fiscal
year under review but, due to the fact that the higher rate was not applied
throughout the year and to the sharp decline in the volume of sugar exports,
the yield of this tax was less in 1944-45 than in 1943-44. It is pertinent
to remark that the relatively heavy shipments of sugar in 1943-44 included
a considerable amount carried over from previous crop.years.


Miscellaneous Customs Recipts
SMiscellaneous customs receipts amounted to Gdes. 239,836.60 in the
fiscal year 1944-45, as compared with Gdes. 51,555.66 in the preceding
year. The increase is primarily explained by the fact that on December 1,
1944, a service charge for handling imported merchandise at the custom-
house, Port-au-Prince, was established. Previously, the individual im-
porters hired laborers to handle their goods on customs premises. These
laborers, not being customs employees, were subject to little supervision,
and considerable confusion and some petty thefts resulted from the arrange-
ment. Under the new plan, all laborers handling goods in the customs
warehouses are employed by the Administration and are subject to close
supervision of foremen and inspectors. The various importers are charged
a reasonable fee for the handling of their goods in the warehouses and it
was this handling fee which causes Miscellaneous Customs Receipts to
show a considerable increase in 1944-45 over the amount collected in the
previous fiscal year.

Internal Revenues
Internal revenue receipts again established an all-time high record in
1944-45, having amounted to Gdes. 10,549,527.99, as compared with
Gdes. 10,488,722.10 in the previous year. The latter figure had represent-
ed the high point of internal revenue annual yield until the close of the
fiscal year 1944-45. 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 again the leading source of internal revenue, having
accounted for 43.93 per cent of the total. No increase in the rates having
occuced during the year, the rise in these collections may be attributed 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. 76,000 and accounted for 8.54 per cent of all internal revenues.
Receipts from documentary stamps and recording fees maintained their
upward trend and reflected increased business activity during the year,
particularly investments in real estate.
The sharpest percentage increase occurred in connection with the sale
of postage stamps, which amounted to Gdes. 780,610.96, or approximately
50 per cent more than in the previous year. This increase was the result
of the shipment abroad by parcel post of considerably greater quantities of
sisal hand-bags, mahogany articles and other products of the small Haitian
industries.
The identity card fees declined by some Gdes. 178,000 from the amount
collected in 1943-44. In the course of'the fiscal year 1943-44, the labor
payrolls of the Soci&et Haitiano-Am6ricaine de Developpement Agricole
were sharply reduced as the result of the abandonment of the program
designed to produce rubber from cryptostegia. During that year, also, the
identity card tax was reduced for certain categories of day laborers. The
full effect of these two factors was felt in 1944-45 and largely accounted
for the decline just mentioned.
Another source of internal revenue receipts which registered a decline in
1944-45 was vital statistics fees. Under a decree-law promulgated in
January 1945, the rural residents of the Republic were exempted.




BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


beginning February 1, 1945, from the fees formerly charged for birth,
marriage and death certificates. Although the law in question provided for
an increase in the fees paid by urban residents, this increase did not com-
pensate the loss resulting from the exemptions. The amount of vital
statistics fees amounted to Gdes. 209,493.37 in 1943-44 and Gdes. 116,-
787.70 in 1944-45.

Telephone, Telegraph and Hydraulic Services
It will be noted from the above table that the sharpest decreases occurred
in connection with the telegraph and telephone receipts and water service
charges, which accounted for some Gdes. 954,000 in 1943-44, and which
turned in no receipts to the national Treasury in 1944-45. By virtue of
decree-laws dated September 23, 1944, ("Le Moniteur" No. 79 of
September 25, 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 general expenditure budget
of the Government, and receipts derived from these public utilities were
classified as internal revenue receipts of the public Treasury. Under the
new arrangement, the two Services function as non-fiscal accounts outside
the general budget of the Government; that is, receipts are credited to
special non-revenue accounts and from these accounts expenditures for
the operation and improvement of the Services are 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 equipment have been
established.
During the fiscal year 1944-45, the receipts of the Telephone and Tele-
graph Service amounted to Gdes. 842,387.97 and expenditures totalled
Gdes. 792,639.10. The receipts and expenditures of the Hydraulic Service
during the same period were Gdes. 522,064.11 and Gdes. 453,938.99,
respectively.
Other public service operations included the following:

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Miscellaneous Governement Receipts

Miscellaneous receipts of the Government totalled Gdes. 337,339.43
during the fiscal year 1944-45, as compared with Gdes. 458,139.57 in the
previous year. Returns on investments accounted for Gdes. 263,979.45
of the 1944-45 total. The principal source of returns on investments was
the dividend from the Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale
de la Republique d'Haiti, which amounted to Gdes. 175,000. Profits of
the Banque Nationale are divided as follows: one third to the public Trea-
sury, one third for projects designed to increase exports, and one third to
build up the surplus of the Bank. The dividend declared in the fiscal year
1944-45 amounted to Gdes. 525,000 and one third of this, or
Gdes. 175,000, was taken up as miscellaneous receipts of the Government.
Other returns on investment included 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. 73,359.98. This amount included the proceeds of the sale of certain
pror rties of the Government and reimbursement by the public Services
of amounts advanced to them in the prior year and not expended.

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


From the above table it will be seen that the expenditures in 1944-45
exceeded those of 1943-44 by Gdes. 495,270.87. The various Depart-
ments and Services of the Government increased their expenditures by
Gdes. 3,305,810.99 while payments on account of the public debt declined
by Gdes. 2,810,540.12.
In connection with payments on account of the public debt it is pertinent
to remark that for some years prior to 1943-44, only small token payments
were made toward amortization of the Series A and Series C loans, although
interest was met in full. In 1943-44, payments on these loans were
considerably increased. Furthermore, relatively large amounts became
payable on the advances received by the Government under the Public
Works Contract of 1938. Also, toward the end of 1943-44, it was decided
to pay in advance the sum of Gdes. 4,000,000 toward amounts due in
1944-45 on the Series A and Series C loans and under the Public. Works
Contract. The result was a total payment for public debt purposes of
Gdes. 13,297,071.77, which apparently represents the highest annual
expenditures ever made on account of the Haitian public debt. Public Debt
expenditures during the fiscal year 1944-45, totalling Gdes. 10,486,-
531.65, represented 25.03 per cent of total Government expenditures, and
were considerably above the annual average of Gdes. 7,795,000 for the
prior period of 20 years.

Disbursements of Departments and Services
Expenditures of the Garde d'Ha'ti amounted to Gdes. 8,941,876.53.
As usual, they were considerably higher than those of any other Depart-
ment or Service of the Government. The increase over the amount expended
from budgetary funds in the preceding year amounted to Gdes. 1,203,-
575.47. This increase resulted from the expansion of activities of the
Garde d'Haiti due to war conditions as well as to reduction in amounts
received in the previous year from non-fiscal sources, particularly blocked
accounts of enemy nationals.
The Department of Public Works disbursed Gdes. 3,325,967.35 or
Gdes. 236,952.38 less than in the fiscal year 1943-44. This decrease
resulted from the fact that the Telegraph and Telephone Service, the Water
Service and Irrigation Service were eliminated from the 1944-45 budget
of that Department.- The first two Services, as stated in a previous
paragraph, became autonomous organizations at the beginning of the fiscal
year 1944-45 while the Irrigation Service was transferred to the Depart-
ment of Agriculture, Expenditures for construction and maintenance of
public highways increased to the extent of almost half a million gourdes
over the 1943-44 disbursements. This included Gdes. 200,000 for cons-
truction of asphalt roads. In the course of 1944-45, an extraordinary
appropriation of Gdes. 305,000 was opened for the reconstruction of the
wharf for coastwise traffic at Port-au-Prince. As of September 30, 1945,
expenditures for this project amounted to Gdes. 147,891.25.




REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The expenditures of the Department of Public Instruction reached
Gdes. 3,168,345.08, or Gdes. 428,753.97 more than in the previous year.
The program of increasing the salary of low paid school teachers, particu-
larly in the rural districts, was continued. Extraordinary expenditures for
the purchase, construction and repairs of school properties and equipment,
notably for the Lycee for girls, Port-au-Prince, and for the Notre-Dame
College at Cap-HaYtien, amounted to some Gdes. 247,000 in 1944-45.
The Public Health Service expended Gdes. 3,098,421.77 or Gdes. 344,-
379.72 more than in the fiscal year 1943-44. The activities of this Service,
particularly in connection with malaria control, were extended, with the.
result that expenditures for salaries and wages and supplies and materials
showed a considerable increase over the 1943-44 figures.
The Agricultural and Rural Education Service expended an amount of
Gdes. 22,513.33 more than in the fiscal year 1943-44. The regular
budgetary expenditures'of this Service rose by Gdes. 343,000 while extra-
ordinary expenditures declined sharply. The Irrigation Service was trans-
ferred from the Department of Public Works to the Department of Agri-
culture at the beginning of the year and the expenditures by this Service,
amounting to Gdes. 137,000, accounted for a considerable proportion of
the rise in the budgetary disbursements. Increases also occurred under
agricultural extension and rural education.
The expenditures of the Department of the Interior showed a greater
decline than those of any other Departmert, having amounted to Gdes.
172,634.66 less than in the prior year. As stated in the 1943-44 Annual
Report,' the President of the Republic and his suite visited Canada, the
United States, Cuba and Venezuela during that year.
The Department of Finance expended Gdes. 520,821.77 more than in
the previous fiscal year. The larger portion of this increase resulted from
the purchase, at a cost of some Gdes. 415,000, of the property on which
the airport at Port-au-Prince is located. The amount of claims paid also
rose to the extent of some Gdes. 51,000 over the 1943-44 payments.
The Department of Justice expended Gdes. 1,621,953.94, or Gdes. 196,-
798.76 more than in the preceding year. Effective February 1, 1945, the
vital statistics officers, who previously had received their income in the
form of fees, were placed on a fixed salary basis under the budget of the
Department of Justice. This new arrangement accounted for the larger
portion of the total increase in the expenditures of that Department.

Internal Revenue Service
The Internal Revenue Service disbursed Gdes. 1,511,881.50 during the
fiscal year 1944-45, or Gdes. 107,347.33 more than in the preceding year.
Certain agents of the Internal Revenue Service are allowed percentages of
total collections in lieu of a fixed salary. When receipts are relatively heavy,
as they were in 1944-45, these percentage amounts increase and the pay-
ments, which are classified as salaries, show a corresponding rise. Increased




BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


expenditures for supplies and materials also occurred in 1944-45. Futher-
more, the Internal Revenue Service pursued its program of constructing
offices for its agents throughout the Republic.
The expenditures of the Department of Foreign Affairs showed a greater
increase than those of any other Department or Service, exclusive of the
Garde d'HaYti, such increase having amounted to Gdes. 556,858.10 or
63.78 per cent. The principal increase occurred under the appropriation
for travel of members of the Diplomatic and Consular Services and of
special missions. In the course of the year delegations from the Republic
fof Haiti attended certain international Conferences, notably those at
Mexico City and San Francisco. Total expenditures under the appropria-
tion for travel amounted to some Gdes. 424,000 or Gdes. 359,000 more
than in the preceding year. Expenditures on account of Embassies, Le-
gations and Consulates rose by approximately Gdes. 152,000 over the
1943-44 disbursements.
The expenditures of the Department of Commerce and National Eco-
nomy declined by some Gdes. 39,000 from the disbursements of the
preceding year. The regular administrative payments rose somewhat but
extraordinary appropriations declined considerably.
The expenses -of the Department of Religion amounted to Gdes. 424,-
726.17 in the fiscal year 1944-45, or Gdes. 29,696.10 over the amount
recorded in the previous year. Among the accounts which showed increases
were those covering the personnel of the Department and salary and
travelling expenses of the clergy.
Payments on account of International Institutions amounted to
Gdes. 294,869.53, or Gdes. 211,850.13, more than in the preceding year.
The payments included Gdes. 125,000 representing the Haitian Govern-
ment's contribution toward the expenses of the American Sanitary Mission
and Gdes. 83,333.33 representing the Government's share of the expenses
incurred under the local cooperative education program which is financed
jointly by the Haitian and American Governments.
Expenditures of the Department of Agriculture and Labor totalled
Gdes. 39,788.40 or Gdes. 1,080.60 more than during the preceding fiscal
year.

Banque Nationale de la Rdpublique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department
The expenditures of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de
Republique d'Haiti, inclusive of those of the Inspection Service, the Customs
Administration and the Central Accounting Service amounted to Gdes.
1,355,650.19, or Gdes. 130,544.55 more than the corresponding dis-
bursements in the fiscal year 1943-44. Prior to the fiscal year 1944-45,
the operating funds of the Inspection Service were derived from a percentage
amount of internal revenue collections, as in the case of the Internal
Revenue Service. As a consequence, expenditures of the Inspection Service





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


and of the Internal Revenue Service were combined in most of the statis-
tical tables. Beginning with the year 1944-45, the funds for the operation
of the InspectionS service were included in the fixed amount appropriated in
the general budget of the Government for the administration of the Banque
National de la R6publique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department. For purposes of
comparison, the expenditures of the Inspection Service for the fiscal year
1943-44 have been separated from those of the Internal Revenue Service
and added to those of the Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti,
Fiscal Department. The following table, therefore, shows the comparable
expenditures of the Fiscal Department, inclusive of the Inspection Service,
the Customs Administration and the Accounting Service for the fiscal years
1944-45 and 1943-44.

Effective December 1, 1944, the Customs Administration undertook
the handling of import cargoes at the custom-house at Port-au-Prince, a
function theretofore exercised by the representatives of individual importers.
A reasonable charge for this service is made to the importers and the
receipts from this source are deposited as Miscellaneous Customs Revenues.
The cost of operating this handling Service is charged to the operating
budget of the Fiscal Department. Expenditures on this account during
the fiscal year 1944-45 amounted to some Gdes. 126,000, and accounted
for most of the increase of Gdes. 130,544.55 in the total cost of operation
of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'HaYti, Fiscal Department.
The increase in the expenditures for salaries and wages was primarily
due to the inauguration of the new handling Service at the Port-au-Prince
custom-house. This new Service also accounted in part for the increase
in the expenditures for supplies and materials.
Transportation charges rose slightly over the amount expended in the
preceding year, due to relatively large repair bills for automobiles, trucks
and the port launch at Port-au-Prince, as well as to increased transport-
ation facilities provided, particularly between the custom-house and the air
port at Port-au-Prince.
Up to September 30, 1944, the various Services of the Government,
including the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la Republique
d'Haiti, enjoyed the free use of the Telephone and Telegraph facilities.




BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


This privilege was discontinued as of October 1, 1944, and in the course
of 1944-45 the Fiscal Department expended Gdes. 9,025.60 for commu-
nications, most of which represented local telegraph and telephone com-
munications. Only Gdes. 23.80 were expended under this heading in the
prior year.
Repair and maintenance charges rose to the extent of Gdes. 8,540.14
over the amount expended in 1943-44. Much of the plant and equipment
of the organization was in need of repairs and painting, and the sum of
Gdes. 24,231.57 expended for this purpose in 1944-45 represented only
a small portion of the amount that could be profitably applied to repairs
and maintenance. In this connection, it is pertinent to remark that toward
the close of 1944-45, an extraordinary appropriation of Gdes. 100,000
for repair to Customs properties and maintenance projects and for the
construction of .a custom-house at Malpasse, on the Haitian-Dominican
frontier, was promulgated.
Expenditures by the Fiscal Department, Banque Nationale de la Repu-
blique d'Haiti, for equipment was less than half the amount expended in
the previous year. Likewise, disbursements for Special and Miscellaneous
purposes declined more than 50 per cent.
The appropriation for the operation of the Fiscal Department during
1944-45 amounted to Gdes. 1,491,140.00 while expenditures totalled
Gdes. 1,355,650.19. The saving of Gdes. 135,489.81 was returned to
the public Treasury.

Treasury Position
Government receipts in 1944-45 totalled Gdes. 41,890,043.22 while
expenditures totalled Gdes. 42,516,283.97. There was, therefore, an
operating deficit for the year of Gdes. 626,240.75, which was covered by
treasury reserves. The unobligated surplus as of September 30, 1945,
amounted to Gdes. 3,282,713.97. Details of Treasury assets and liabilities

It will be seen that current assets rose from the September 30, 1944,
figure by some Gdes. 742,000. On the other hand, current liabilities
increased to the extent of approximately Gdes. 2,113,000. Most of this
increase occurred in connection with extraordinary appropriations opened
during the year but not expended and in the balance of non-fiscal accounts.

The Public Debt
The gross public debt of the Republic of Haiti on September 30, 1945,
amounted to Gdes. 52,936,369.30, as compared with Gdes. 60,459,-
610.55, as of September 30, 1944. Table No. 44 presents the statement
of the public debt at the end of each fiscal year since 1915. For convenient

All interest payments for the year on the outstanding indebtedness of
the Republic were met in full.
Under the terms of an Agreement reached between the Haitian and the
United States Governments, the Republic of Haiti undertook to pay
Gdes. 3,500,000 toward amortization of the Series A and Series C loans,
in the fiscal year 1944-45. Of this amount, Gdes. 2,000,000 were paid in
the latter part of the preceding year as an advance, and the balance of
Gdes. 1,500,000, which was contingent upon receipts reaching Gdes.
35,000,000, was paid in May, 1945, when it became evident that revenues
for the year would reach the indicated figure. Toward the end of 1944-45,
the sum of Gdes. 2,000,000 was advanced on the amounts due toward
amortization of the Series A and Series C loans during the fiscal year
1945-46.
All interest and amortization payments on the advances received under
the Public Works Contract of 1938 were made when due, or in advance.




REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The amortization payment in the fiscal year 1944-45 included the amount
of Gdes. 2,000,000 due in the succeeding year.

The Budget

The budget for the fiscal year 1944-45, as originally promulgated in
of September 28, 1944, estimated receipts at Gdes. 35,-
991,000, and authorized expenditures of a.4imilar amount. However, as
the year progressed and 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 appropriations
was the sum of Gdes. 5,000,000 for service of the public debt. The
following table shows that total expenditure authorizations for 1944-45
reached Gdes. 43,875,298.52 while expenditures totalled Gdes. 42,516,-
283.97:

Banking and Currency

Haiti is served by two banks, the Banque Nationale de la Republique
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 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 depo-





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


sitary 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 1944-45 totalling Gdes. 7,461,906.62, as compared
with Gdes. 8,145,101.87 in the preceding year 1943-44.
Bank deposits showed a sharp increase in 1944-45. Excluding Govern-
ment accounts, deposits averaged Gdes. 39,275,993.92 in 1944-45 as
compared with Gdes. 31,389,973.98 in 1943-44 and Gdes. 24,214,-
759.22 in 1942-43.
Currency circulation on September 30, 1945 and on the same date of
the previous year are shown in the table below:

It will be seen that there was a slight increase in the currency circulation
as of September 30, 1945.
.Inclusive of United States dollars, total currency in circulation at the
end of the past ten fiscal years has been estimated as follows:

Table No. 48 shows the circulation of gourde notes by months over a
period of years. The annual averages during the last five fiscal years have
been as follows:
Gourdes
1940-41 ........................................... 9,007,207
1941-42 .............................. 14,401,317

1943-44............................... 22,727,266
1944-45 .......................................... 23,492.204

Several factors serve to explain the upward trend of gourde note circula-
tion during recent years. Among these, the most important perhaps, are
those already mentioned in a preceding paragraph in connection with the
decline in import duty collections in 1944-45. They are the relatively
large investments made in Haiti by SHADA, particularly in connection





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


with the development of the program for producing rubber from cryp-
tostegia, the increasing foreign demand for Haitian products at rising
prices during the war years, and the difficulties which Haitian importers
have encountered, because of restrictions imposed by the United
States on exports and for other reasons arising out of the war -,
in obtaining sufficient foreign merchandise to absorb the country's in-
creasing purchasing power. It would seem that the establishment of several
new industries in Haiti has also been a factor contributing to the increase
in gourde note circulation. It may be of interest to add, in this connection,
that comparatively few persons in Haiti maintain bank accounts and that
individual holdings, therefore, must be in cash.
It its interesting to note that average monthly deposits in banks in
Haiti, exclusive of Government deposits, have shown a sharp upward trend
during the past five fiscal years, as reflected in the following table:
Gourdes
1940-41............................................ 13,762,277.36
1941-42.......................................... 15,271,935.52
1942-43.......................................... 24,214,759.22
1943-44............................................ 31,389,973.98
1944-45 .......................................... 39,275,993.92

The rising trend appears to reflect general prosperity and a shortage of
consumer goods resulting from war conditions.

Supply Services
The Central Supply Office known as the "Bureau de Fournitures"
continued, in 1944-45, as a division of the Banque Nationale de la Ripu-
blique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department, to furnish stationery, office supplies
and equipment to the several Departments and Services of the Haitian
Government. The purchase, for Government account, of material other
than office supplies, is handled by the "Magasins de l'Etat," an organi-
zation which, since December 21, 1944, has functioned as a part of the
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti, Commercial Department.
In spite of the various licensing restrictions on exports from the United
States and transportation difficulties, both the "Bureau de Fournitures,"
and "Magasins de l'Etat" were able 'to maintain, during the year under
review, fairly adequate stocks of the various supplies required by the
Government Services.
The Mohegan Trading Corporation of New York City continued to
act as Purchasing Agent of the Haitian Government in the United States
during 1944-45 and, in that capacity, executed orders placed by both the
"Bureau de Fournitures" and the "Magasins de l'Etat".
The profit and loss statement of the "Bureau de Fournitures" for the
fiscal year 1944-45 appears in Table No. 46, while the balance sheet as
of September 30, 1945, is carried in Table No. 47.





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


The results of operations of the "Magasins de l'Etat" are included in
the General Statement of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti,
Commercial Department.

Communal Accounts
During the four fiscal years ended with 1944-45, communal funds have
been collected, classified, expended and 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 Banque Nationale de la
Republique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department, since the beginning of the fiscal
year 1941-42. Table No. 54 shows the receipts and expenditures of each
of the Communes for the fiscal year 1944-45. There is presented below
a general statement of receipts and expenditures and surplus for the four
years that the communal accounts have been subject to the general budget-
ary and accounting regulations:

In accordance with the decree-law No. 443 of September 26, 1944,
("Le Moniteur" No. 80 dated September 28, 1944), the communal sur-
pluses are subject to expenditure in conformity with the following schedule,
which also indicates the expenditures during 1944-45 under the several
headings: Expenditures

The unobligated balance of the combined Communal Reserve Account
as of September 30, 1945, amounted to Gdes. 693,426.51.

Foreign Trade Values
The value of Haitian exports rose in 1944-45 by Gdes. 5,020,042 by
comparison with 1943-44 to a total of Gdes. 85,561,674, a figure which





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


had not been surpassed since 1927-28 when the total was Gdes. 113,-
336,230.
There was a substantial decline in imports in 1944-45, the figure of
Gdes. 65,769,704 recorded for the year comparing with Gdes. 80,155,339
recorded in 1943-44.
The following table shows the value of imports and exports and the
trade balance for each of the past ten years:

1944-45........ 65,769,704 85,561,674 ................ 19,791,970

The substantial export balance of Gdes. 19,791,970 recorded for 1944-
45 invites special attention. Exports have exceeded imports during each
of the past four fiscal years with the result than an export balance of
Gdes. 24,649,757 has been built up for the period.

Percentage of Imports by Countries of Origin
Although the total value of imports into Haiti declined sharply in
1944-45, from Gdes. 80,155,339 in 1943-44 to Gdes. 65,769,704, there
was an increase in the proportionate share of this trade held by the United
States, as shown below:
1944-45 1943-44
Per cent Per cent
United States ........................ 83.77 69.44
Argentina ......................... ... 5.10 3.50

Netherlands ............................ 1.25 2.70
All other ................................ 0.46 0.66
100.00 100.00
As will be seen from the above table, there was a marked decline in
1944-45 in the proportionate share of Haiti's import trade held by Mexico.
For a time, during the previous fiscal year, textiles from Mexico had been
imported into Haiti in relatively large quantities. In 1944-45, Argentina,
furnishing principally soap and lard, assumed, relatively, increased im-
portance as a supplier of Haitian imports.

Imports from the United States of America
Notable among the changes which occurred in Haitian import trade
during 1944-45 was a marked increase in imports of wheat flour from
the United States and a sharp decline in imports of United States cotton

In connection with the decline in cotton textile imports in 1944-45, it is
of interest to recall that, during pre-war years, duties on imports of cotton'
textiles accounted for approximately one-third of total import revenues.
During the year under review cotton textiles accounted for less than 20
per cent of total import revenues while wheat flour accounted for appro-
ximately 32 per cent of the total. It is also of interest to recall in this
connection that, as reported in the Annual Report for 1943-44, a cotton
textile mill is now under construction in Haiti.

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 21.

Although the value of imports of foodstuffs into Haiti increased marked-
ly in 1944-45, the gain was insufficient to compensate the very large decline
recorded in the value of imports of textiles and clothing.

Prices of Principal Commodities
The table below shows C.I.F. prices as computed from customs records
for leading commodities during the past five years:

Wheat flour and cotton textile imports each accounted, roughly, for
one-fourth of total Haitian import values in 1944-45. While the unit
price of wheat flour and cotton textiles, especially the latter, increased
in 1944-45 as compared with the pre-war year 1940-41, it will be seen
from the above table that, on the whole, prices in 1944-45, while tending
to rise, held relatively steady as compared with the previous year.

Percentage of Imports by Ports
The following table shows the percentage of Haitian imports, by ports
of entry, for the past three fiscal years:
1944-45 1943-44 1942-43
Per cent Per cent Per cent

There was little change, during the fiscal year under review, in the pro-
portion of total imports entering Haiti through the several ports of the
Republic. As reported last year, special transit facilities are offered to
importers, enabling them to clear through the customs at outlying ports
merchandise which actually enters Haiti at Port-au-Prince. With the end
of the war, however, it may be expected that an increasing number of
ships from abroad will call at Haitian 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 year 1944-45, as compared with 1943-44, is shown below:
1944-45 1943-44
Per cent Per cent

All other .................................... 1.08 0.73

100.00 100.00

The change in the proportionate share of Haitian exports taken by the
several countries shown above, is explained largely by a decline in Haitian
exports of sugar during 1944-45 as compared with 1943-44. During
the latter year a large carry-over from previous crops had been included
in the total of exports. The British Commonwealth is, normally, the
principal purchaser of Haitian sugar although Switzerland takes a small
amount of the crop.

Coffee was first among the items which helped to swell the total of
Haitian exports to the United States of America in 1944-45. Other items
which merit special mention were bananas, essential oils, and various
handicraft products, notably, mahogany ware. The increase over a period





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


of three years in the value of sisal and straw shoes and slippers exports is
striking, although the total amounts involved are only a fraction of the
value of total exports.

The figures indicate that, notwithstanding the increase in the value of
exports in 1944-45 as compared with 1943-44, there was actually a decline
of 17.06 per cent in the volume of Haitian export tonnage. The rise in
prices which has been under way for some time past has been the subject
of comment elsewhere in this Report.

During the war years the submarine menace and lack of shipping fa-
cilities tended to increase concentration of Haitian exports through Port-au-
Prince. With a return to more normal trade conditions there was a better
distribution of exports through the various ports and a consequent decline,
in 1944-45, in the percentage of shipments cleared through Port-au-Prince.


Principal Export Products

Details concerning certain of Haiti's principal export products are pre-
sented below:

Of special interest is the very large increase during 1-944-45 in shipments
of Haitian coffee to Switzerland. The explanation lies in the fact that
higher prices were obtainable in Switzerland than in the United States
where, throughout the period under review, the price ceiling was rigidly
enforced.

Cotton Exports

Cotton exports were very much smaller both in volume and value in
1944-45 than in 1943-44, as shown below:

Raw Sugar Exports

There was a decline in 1944-45 both in the volume and value of sugar
exported. It should be explained, however, that during 1943-44 sugar
exports included a substantial carry-over from the previous year's crop:

Banana Exports

Banana exports, in 1944-45, were substantially greater, both in volume
and value, than during any previous year since the present system of
computing statistics was instituted. Increasing foreign demand for bananas
coupled with higher prices paid for the fruit and improved sea transport





26 BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

facilities resulted in the establishment of a new high record for banana
exports in 1944-45 as shown below:

The increase in exports of bananas through the port of Jer6mie in 1944-
45 was especially noteworthy. The increase would seem to have been due
to the extension by decree-law of April 23, 1945, ("Le Moniteur" No. 34
dated April 26, 1945) to independent operators in the Southern districts
of Haiti, of facilities previously reserved for the Standard Fruit and Steam-
ship Company of Hayti.

Handicraft Exports
One of the most interesting economic developments of recent years
in Haiti has been the growth, encouraged by the Government, of the
handicraft industry. It is believed that this business, if proper care is given
to its organization and development, may become an important element
in the Haitian economic structure.
In 1944-45 mahogany ware and sisal handbags were the principal items
in the handicraft export trade although the remarkable expansion, during
the year, of the straw and sisal shoe and slipper business merits notice:

Noteworthy, because of expansion during 1944-45 and because of its
future possibilities, was the development of essential oils exports as shown
below:

The combined values of handicraft and essential oils shipments were
sufficient in 1944-45 to give these products fifth place among Haiti's
exports. Only coffee, bananas, sugar and sisal exports, in the order named,
stood ahead of handicraft and essential oils exports combined in 1944-45.


Air Traffic Expansion

The use of air transport for passengers and freight traffic to and from
Haiti was greatly stimulated by the interruption of sea transport services
during the war. There was further expansion of this business during the
fiscal year 1944-45 as shown below:

the shipment of Haitian handicraft products.

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Martime Traffic
There was increased shipping activity in Haitian waters in 1944-45
as compared with 1943-44, but this activity was confined to relatively
small vessels. There was a substantial increase in the number of vessels
which entered Haitian ports during the year under review, but the net
tonnage declined, as shown below:

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

1943-44......... ..................... 566 206,193
1944-45.................................. 786 191,402

The figures show the impact of the war on traffic movements in Haitian
ports. Following the cessation of hostilities in 1944-45, small boats could,
once again, move freely to and from the Continent without fear of sub-
marine attack. The larger vessels, however, which formerly touched at
Haitian ports were, apparently, still engaged in other traffic, elsewhere.

Control of Coastwise Traffic
Registration and numbering of all vessels engaged in Haitian coastwise
traffic, which was undertaken as a war emergency measure in 1942, has
become a permanent feature of the administration of Haitian ports. It is
believed that practically all Haitian vessels of more than eighteen feet in
length have now been registered and listed with the authorities. The total
number registered in 1944-45 was 730 as compared with 705 registered
in 1943-44. Of the 730 vessels registered in the year under review 589
were small sailing craft of less than 20 tons displacement. Only two
Haitian vessels, the largest displacing 194 tons, are of more than 150 tons
displacement.
The port authorities announce storm warnings and endeavor at all
times to exercise strict control in order to guard against over-loading of
these small vessels. Unfortunately, since the boats are small enough to
land at will almost anywhere along the coast, effective control over their
movements is difficult. Furthermore, the Haitian area is frequently swept
by winds of high velocity. These two circumstances combined in 1944-45
to increase the toll of vessels and lives lost at sea. There is presented below
a: table showing the number of ships wrecked and the number'of lives lost
as a result of these accidents during the past three fiscal years:

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The record leaves much to be desired. It is hoped that publication of
the figures may lead captains of coastwise vessels and their passengers to
lend the port authorities, in the future, a greater degree of cooperation than
in the past.

Building Activity
Figures compiled by the Department of Public Works show that there
was increased building activity in the Port-au-Prince area in 1944-45 as
compared with 1943-44.
The table presented below shows the number of buildings constructed
and the value of construction contracts negotiated during the fiscal year
ended September 30, 1945, as compared with the previous fiscal year. The
figures relate to P&tionville -as well as to Port-au-Prince. The former resort
town'being situated in the mountains at a distance of only a few'miles
from Port-au-Prince may, for practical purposes, be considered as being
a part of the capital city.

Increased building activity is a reflection of the improved business con-
ditions which have prevailed in Haiti during recent years.

American Sanitary Mission
During the fiscal year under review, the American Sanitary Mission,
operating in conjunction with the Haitian Public Health Service, carried
forward a cooperative undertaking inaugurated some three or more years
ago. This undertaking is financed jointly by the Institute of Inter-
American Affairs, a United States Agency, and the Haitian Government.
By virtue of an exchange of correspondence, dated July 11, 1944, as
between the Haitian Government and the Institute of Inter-American
Affairs, it was agreed that the two parties would make the following
contributions toward the execution of the program:

It has been further agreed that on the completion, as of September 30,
1947, of this Cooperative Health Program, the Haitian Government will





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


endeavor within the limits of its available funds to maintain the projects
executed.
SThe work of the American Sanitary Mission in 1944-45 consisted of
(1) Sanitary Engineering, including malaria control, drainage, sewage
disposal, water supply, etc.; (2) Anti-yaws campaign; (3) Scholarships
for Haitian nationals in the United States of America; (4) Cooperation in
Health Education.
A brief summary of activities under each of the foregoing headings
follows:
Malaria control drainage and other engineering work designed to improve
health conditions was carried forward at Leogane, Saint-Marc, Gona'ves,
Croix-des-Bouquets, Fort-Lamentin, Carrefour, Maison Centrale des Arts
et Metiers, Normal School, Bizoton.
Clinics have been established at the following eight localities: Gressier,
Cayes-Jacmel, Kenscoff, Thiotte, Grand-Goive, St.-Michel-du-Sud, C6tes-
de-Fer and La Vallie. During the year, there were 293,370 clinic visits
and 403,476 treatments given. 95,306 new patients were received during
the year.
In cooperation with the Surgeon General's Office of the U. S. Army,
500 yaws patients were treated with penicillin with excellent results.
At the present time eleven Haitian physicians have received one year's
training in Public Health at Harvard University and the University of
Michigan, and eight engineers have received training as sanitary engineers
at the same two institutions, after which all have received training in field
work at Puerto Rico. Two travel grants were given for observation in
the United States. Eleven inspectors received six weeks' training in Health
Department in Puerto Rico.
Lectures and demonstrations have been carried on at the Normal School
and at the Agricultural School at Damien, in cooperation with the Ministry
of Health.
Cooperative Educational Program
The Government of Haiti and the Inter-American Educational Foun-
dation, Inc., a United States Government Agency, are collaborating in the
execution of a program designed to improve educational facilities in Haiti.
The work of the Inter-American Educational Foundation finds ex-
pression in the "Commission Cooperative Haitiano-Americaine d'Educa-
tion". This agency operates under the Minister of Education with a
Director who serves as Representative of the Inter-American Educational
Foundation, Inc.
The original contract entered into between the Government of Haiti
and the Inter-American Educational Foundation, Inc., on the 30th of
April 1944, called for the payment of $50,000 by the Haitian Govern-
ment, in three yearly instalments beginning on May 1, 1944; and .'


t





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


payment, -not to exceed $147,000, by the Inter-American Educational
Foundation, Inc., for the salaries and expenses of the American members
of the personnel as well as of a sum of $15,000 to be paid, by yearly
instalments, to the Commission, beginning May 1, 1944. As a result
of a supplementary agreement dated May 24, 1945 ("Le Moniteur" No.
45, June 4, 1945), the Haitian Government agreed to make, in addition to
the above mentioned sum of $50,000, a supplementary payment of
$10,000, of which $4,876.30 have already been expended for the cons-
truction of Normal Schools. The Inter-American Educational Foundation
agreed to pay an additional $10,000, increasing thereby from $15,000 to
$25,000 the sums payable to the Commission. Besides, it has been agreed
that the $147,000 instead of being destined exclusively to the payment
of the salaries and expenses of the.American personnel of the Commission,
as provided for in the original contract of May 30, 1944, will be used for
the payment of salaries and expenses of all the personnel of the Inter-
American Educational Foundation, Inc., in Haiti.
At the present time the personnel of the Commission consists of eleven
persons, five of whom are Haitians and six are North Americans. The
Haitian members of the organization provide the following services, name-
ly: administrative, secretarial and accounting. The supervisory services of
the Commission, with one exception, are provided by North Americans.
The exception is a Haitian who gives attention to the preparation of text
books for the schools of Haiti. The North American personnel provides
supervisory instruction in the fields of Ceramics, Health and Hygiene,
Sciences, Manual Arts, and English Teaching.
It is hoped that this type of inter-cultural exchange will provide needed
technical knowledge without interfering with the aims of a national
program of education.

Cooperative Food Production Program
The work of the Cooperative Food Production Program initiated in
September 1944 by the Haitian Department of Agriculture and the Institute
of Inter-American Affairs, Food Supply Division, has been well received
by the interested parties and an extension of the Agreement, has been signed
to carry out a program for increasing food production in Haiti to December
31, 1946. The new Agreement, dated July 20,.1945 ("Le Moniteur"
No. 75 of September 17, 1945), increased the total funds available for
this work since the beginning of the program to $275,000, of which the
Institute of Inter-American Affairs, Food Supply Division, contributes
$175,000 and the Haitian Government $100,000.
During the fiscal year under review, progress was made in the planting of
food crops on land formerly planted in cryptostegia. Small farm tools were
made available at low prices and instruction regarding improved agricultural
practices was given to peasant farmers.

Important among the activities undertaken by the Cooperative Food
Production Program in 1944-45, were irrigation and drainage projects,
the lands reclaimed as a result of the latter having been planted in food
crops.
Lack of storage facilities has always made it difficult for the Haitian
farmer to keep sufficient seed for the planting of the following season's
crop. The wide fluctuations of grain prices has made it difficult for
him to furnish a stable supply of food for his family. To alleviate
this condition, a start has been made by providing grain storage facilities
in the principal crop areas with a total capacity of over one million
pounds. Seventy-five 12,000-pound capacity metal silos have been provided
and also additional permanent storage and fumigation facilities in the
Artibonite Valley.

Petroleum Exploration Work in Haiti
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 1945, exploration work was
carried forward by the Atlantic Refining Company on certain of the petro-
leum concessions which it controls in Haiti. This work consisted, pri- i
marily, of the drilling of deep test wells in search for petroleum and the
continuation of the drilling of relatively shallow core holes for geological 1
information. Haitian Petroleum Company, made up primarily of Standard 1
Oil Company of New Jersey and Seaboard Oil Company of Delaware, J
holds an undivided interest in all of these petroleum concessions, which e
in the aggregate cover approximately 500,000 acres.
Well Maissade No. 1 was drilled near the town of Hinche in the Central (
Plain area. Towards the end of the fiscal year the depth of this well ap- I
proximated 9,010 feet. At this point, it was finally abandoned as a dry r
hole. Thereafter, the drilling rig was moved about 4 miles north to the C
location of well Jurinet No. 1, upon which operations had been tem-
porarily suspended in August 1944, after this well has reached a depth j
of 7,005 feet. It is planned to deepen the Jurinet No. 1 well by perhaps r,
1,000 to 2,000 feet. Further deep test drilling is contemplated in at least v
one other area. ii
A total of 56 core holes to depths varying from 600 to 1,700 feet was a.
drilled during the year in the Cul de Sac Valley, north and east of Port-
au-Prince. This program was designed to secure stratigraphic information
and to outline structure in the sub-surface. Good results are reported to
have been obtained.
Bauxite. Mining d(
Bauxite exploration, development and basic engineering work under- C
taken in Haiti, in 1944, by the Reynolds Mining Corporation, was carried
forward throughout the fiscal year ended September 30, 1945. As of the
latter date, it was reported that surveys for the transportation of ore

including shipping facilities, had been completed. The leasing from the
United States Government of large alumina and metal plants in the United
States with production facilities greatly in excess of prewar capacity would,
it was expected, assure the early use of Haitian beauxite.

New Contract for Standard Fruit Company
During the fiscal year under review, the ten-year contract between the
Haitian Government and the Standard Fruit and Steamship Company of
Hayti which provided for the development of the production and export-
ation of bananas from Haiti expired. On April 18, 1945, a new contract
(Decree-law 489 of April 23, 1945 published in "Le Moniteur" No. 34
dated April 26, 1945) was signed for a five-year period with an option in
favor of the Company for one additional period of five years, under certain
conditions. At the expiration of this second period the contract may be
renewed by mutual consent.
Important among the changes resulting from negotiation of the new
contract is the extension to independent operators of privileges previously
reserved, exclusively, to the Company. Under the new arrangement, the
Company's exclusive privilege of buying, for exportation, all Haitian
bananas of the type will apply only in certain specified areas
located, principally, in the Northern and Western portions of the country.
A determined area in the Department of the Artibonite is reserved for
exclusive cultivation by the Company.
Furthermore, under the new contract, the tax exemptions granted to the
Company are well defined. The same is true of the obligations assumed
by the Company toward the Government and the planters. Also, certain
points which under the old contract had led to difficulties between the
Government and the Company are clarified. It is, therefore, to be expected
-and the results at the end of the fiscal year 1944-45 would seem to
justify this expectation that in'view of the definite character of the
respective commitments assumed by the parties to the new contract, as
well as of existing market conditions, bananas, now second in importance
in value among export commodities, may, in the course of time, rival coffee
as a source of income to Haiti.

.Change in Membership of Bank Board
Towards the end of the fiscal year under review, a change occurred in.
the Haitian membership of the Board of Directors of the Banque Nationale
de la Republique d'Haiti. As of September 1, 1945, Mr. Pierre Chauvet,
who was, at the time, serving as Under-Secretary of State for Finance,
Commerce and National Economy, was appointed a member of the Board
to fill the vacancy created by the appointment of Mr. Serge Lion Defly as
Haitian Minister to France.

Conclusion

In the foreign trade field, the fiscal year 1944-45 was chiefly notable
for an increase in exports which, combined with a decline in imports,
,resulted in the creation of a larger export balance for Haiti than any
recorded since 1918-19.
During the course of the year, there was a continued foreign demand, at
rising prices, for Haiti's principal export commodities, notably, coffee,
sugar, bananas and handicraft products. At the same time, as a result
of war time restrictions on exports imposed in the United States as well
as the lack of shipping facilities and also difficulties arising out of
the reconversion of United States industry to the purposes of peace, Haitian
importers were unable to obtain all of the foreign goods which the local
market might otherwise have consumed and imports, consequently, declined
as compared with the previous year. The combination of these factors
resulted in the creation of a substantial export balance. Barring unforeseen
developments, this backlog of purchasing power will, presumably, tend
to stimulate commercial activity during 1945-46.
From the point of view of Government revenues, the fiscal year ended
September 30, 1945, proved, on the whole, to be satisfactory. Total
collections declined somewhat from the level reached during the previous
fiscal year but they were considerably higher than the annual average.
In conclusion, it may be permitted to express satisfaction with the
results achieved in 1944-45. Under normal conditions, a word of confidence
regarding the future would, at this point, be in order. World conditions
today, however, are such as to make it impossible to look ahead with any
degree of assurance. At the time of writing, the nearer-term outlook seems
bright enough. It is believed, however, that many difficulties will have to
be met and solved before Haiti reaches the ultimate goal of a stable economy
in a world at peace.
