ANNUAL REPORT

of the

FISCAL DEPARTMENT

covering the fiscal year

OCTOBER 1945 SEPTEMBER 1946


Port-au-Prince, Haiti, December 20, 1946.
To the
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE
BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI.

Sirs:

There is presented herewith the Annual Report of the Banque Nationale
de la Repub'lique d'Ha'ti, Fiscal Department, for the fiscal year ended Sep-
tember 30, 1946.
The Annual Reports of the Fiscal Department are distributed at home
and 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,
normally includes in the Report certain items of general interest not
directly related to the work of the Department. The practice has, this
year, once again, been followed.
The fiscal year ended September 30, 1946 was noteworthy for a variety
of reasons:
Foreign trade values soared to levels seldom surpassed since present
methods of compiling statistics were instituted. An unprecedented world
demand for agricultural products resulted in a marked increase in Haitian
exports, Meanwhile, various factors including shortage of materials, the
application of Government controls over exports in the United States,
strikes and the disorganization of sea transport services, tended to restrict
imports into Haiti. The combination of these factors resulted in the
creation of a very large export balance for Haiti and the country's foreign.
trade and general economic situation were correspondingly strengthened.




BANQUE NAtIONALE DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Government receipts for the fiscal year 1945-46 showed substantial gains
under almost all headings. Only twice before since present methods of
compiling statistics were instituted, have Government receipts exceeded the
figure reported for the year under review.
Bank deposits showed a moderate increase in, 1945-46, while currency
circulation rose sharply to what seems to have been an all-time record high
level.
It is perhaps not out of order to recall/here that the unusually satisfactory
commercial and financial results reported above were achieved against a
background of political uncertainty at home as well as in the face of difficul-
ties abroad arising out of the reconversion of the world's industrial machine
to the purposes of peace. Hardly had the first quarter of the,fiscal year
ended when, in January 1946, following a brief period marked by strikes
and other disorders, a Military Committee took over the Executive Power
in Haiti. There followed a period: of months during which the Military
Executive Committee directed the affairs of the country and endeavored
to obtain an expression of the popular will through the operation of de-
mocratic processes. Finally, in August 1946, the new President of Haiti,
M. Dumarsais Estim6, took office and new heads of the several Government
Departments were appointed.
While the volume of both Haitian, imports aid exports expanded, under
certain headings, in 1945-46 as compared with the previous year, the
rise in the value of trade would seem to merit special notice. Haitian pro-
ducers in 1945-4,6 sold their products in foreign markets at higher prices
than had previously prevailed. At the same time, because of shortages and
for other reasons already detailed above, it was impossible for Haitian
importers to obtain abroad all of the goods which the country could
otherwise have consumed. As a result, despite higher prices paid for certain
classes of foreign merchandise, a very large export balance, representing a
substantial backlog of unused purchasing power, was built up in Haiti.
On. the face of it, the creation of this large export balance was a favorable
economic development of the year under review. It should be. recalled,
however, and the sharp increase in currency circulation in Haiti in
1945-46 bears witness to the fact -, that there was no adequate outlet
abroad for Haiti's increased purchasing power. The result was an infla-
tionary tendency at home, reflected in rising costs of living, wages and
rents. This inflationary aspect of Haitian prosperity at the end of the
fiscal year 1945-46 implies danger ahead and optimism regarding the future
must, to this extent at least, be qualified.
There follows a detailed analysis of the financial and foreign trade sta-
tistics on which the foregoing brief summary was based.







' REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Government Receipts

Total revenue receipts during the fiscal year 1945-46 amounted to Gdes.
44,557,226.75*, or Gdes. 2,667,183.53 (6.4%o) more than the amount
collected during the previous year. Only twice, in 1925-26 and 1927-28,
since present methods of compiling statistics were instituted, have Govern,-
ment receipts exceeded the figure reached in 1945-46.

The following table shows a comparison between receipts from all sour-
ces during the fiscal year 1945-46 and those collected in, the preceding year:

From the above percentage columns it will be seen that the proportion of
revenues derived from the several sources varied little from those recorded
in 1944-45.


Customs Collections
Total receipts from customs sources amounted to Gdes. 32,799,002.37
or 73.6 per cent of all Government collections. Import duties recorded an
increase of more than 10 per cent while export duties and miscellaneous
customs receipts showed little change from the amounts collected in the
previous year. The increase in import revenues reflects the receipt of a
larger volume of certain kinds of foreign articles, such as gasoline and
kerosene, cigarettes and tobacco, chemical and pharmaceutical products and
iron and steel products. It also reflects to some extent the higher prices
paid for certain classes of merchandise purchased' abroad.

The principal sources of import revenues, in. order of yield and compared
with those collected in the previous year, were as follows:



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. cy.

maintained their position as the principal source of revenue under the
import tariff. Cotton goods showed a minor increase but the yield from.
this source was considerably below the annual average over a period of
years. Increases which were among the most noteworthy included duty
on gasoline and kerosene and cigarettes and tobacco, both of which rose
by more than Gdes. 1,000,000. In fact, most of the categories showed
substantial increases over the previous year, the notable exceptions being
flour, as already stated, foodstuffs, soap and leather goods.

Export Revenues

Export revenues by sources were as follows in 1945-46 and 1944-45:
1945-46 1944-45
Gourdes Per Cent Gourdes Per Cent
Coffee ....................... 5,090,070 68.33 6,483,565 84.69
Sugar ............................ 1,106,665 14.86 553,658 7.23
Bananas ...................... 370,864 4.98 255,183 3.33
Sisal ............................ 274,393 3.68 131,162 1.71
Cotton ........................... 102,035 1.37 21,743 0.29

Total.................. 7,448,820 100.00 7,655,865 100.00

Export duties are principally derived from the specific duties collected
on coffee. These duties accounted for 68.33 per cent of all the export re-
venues in the fiscal year 1945-46, as compared with 84.69 per cent in the
prior year. The decline of Gdes. 1,393,495 resulted from the decrease in
the volume of coffee exports, from 29,968,230 kilos in 1944-45 to
24,282,605 kilos in 1945-46.
The export duty rate on sugar was increased shortly before the beginning
of the fiscal year 1945-46 and the yield of this export tax was double that

of the prior year, although the. volume of sugar exports was considerably
below that of 1944-45. The previous export tax on sugar was a nominal
3 specific duty whereas, currently, sugar exports are taxed on an ad valorem
5 basis. The relative importance of the sugar tax in 1945-46, therefore,
o reflects the rise in price of this commodity on the world markets.
o No change in the export duties on other products such as bananas, sisal
8 and cotton, was effected in 1945-46 and the increases in the revenues
4 derived from these commodities reflect greater volumes of exports.

9 Miscellaneous customs receipts amounted to Gdes. 279,956.06 in the
4 fiscal year 1945-46, as compared with Gdes. 239,836.60 in the preceding
0
4 year and the full amount of the gain was accounted for by increased receipts
9 from the service charge for handling imported merchandise at the custom-
Shouse, Port-au-Prince. The charge for handling imports is based on
tonnage and the increased receipts reflect to some extent an increase in the
t volume of imports. The primary explanation of the increase, however,
e lies in, the fact that in the course of 1945-46 it became necessary to increase
n the rate of the service charge in order to make possible certain pay increases
f for the personnel engaged in the handling of imports.

:e Internal Revenues
d Internal revenue receipts again established an all-time high record in,
g 1945-46, having amounted to Gdes. 10,878,482.34, as compared with
Gdes. 10,549,527.99 in the preceding year. The latter figure had pre-
viously represented the high point of internal revenue annual yield. In the
following table the sources of internal revenue receipts yielding more than
Gdes. 100,000 are listed in the order of yield. The extent to which there
were increases or decreases, as compared with 1944-45, is also shown:

The income tax was again the leading source of internal revenues, having
Accounted for 40.12 per cent of the'total. Since no change in the rates
t occurred during the year, the decline of Gdes. 270,715.10 may be ascribed






B'ANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


to smaller business profits. The decline in taxable income was, no dbubt,
due in large measure to the rise in salaries and wages which became effective
almost generally in the course of the year.
The next most important source of internal revenue was the excise tax
on cigarettes which showed an increase over the preceding year of some
Gdes. 376,000 and accounted for 11.74 per cent of all internal revenues.
The trend of receipts from the sale of postage stamps continued upward.
It is understood that the rise in receipts from this source is largely due to
increased interest in Haitian stamp issues on, the part of collectors.
Receipts from documentary stamps increased by Gdes. 95,454.80 while
the excise on vegetable oils and the mineral exploration fees rose by Gdes.
46,583.04 and Gdes. 46,823.98, respectively.
Aside from the income tax, the only source which showed a considerable
decline in receipts was recording fees, which yielded Gdes. 719,285.63, or
Gdes. 56,757.44 less than in the preceding year.

Telephone, Telegraph and Hydraulic Services
At the end of the fiscal year 1943-44, the Telephone and Telegraph
Service and the Hydraulic Service became autonomous organizations. Prior
to that time, the funds for the operation of these Services were appropria-
ted under the general expenditure budget of the Government and receipts
derived from these public utilities were classified as internal revenue receipts
of the 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. As a matter of interest, the receipts and expenditures of the
two Services during the last two years of operation as fiscal organizations
as well as during the two years as autonomous organizations, are shown
below:

the previous year. The returns on. investments accounted for Gdes.
148,939.20. The principal source of returns on investments was the divi-
dend from the Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale de la Ri-
publique d'Haiti which amounted to Gdes. 100,000. The profits of the
Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Ha'iti are divided as follows: one-
third to the Public Treasury; '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 1945-46 amounted to Gdes. 300,000, and one-
third of this sum was taken. up as miscellaneous receipts of the Govern-
ment.

Other returns on investments included 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. 294,395.83. The principal deposit to this. account amounted to
Gdes. 259,831.25 and represented a transfer from the Special Reserve
Account of the Communes to the account of the Public Treasury covering
three-quarters of the expenditures effected by the Public Treasury in con-
nection with the legislative elections which were held May 12, 1946, as
authorized by the decree published in 4Le Moniteurm No. 28 of March 18,
1946.

P'ANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


From the above table it will be seen that expenditures in 1945-46 were
Gdes. 2,139,066.03 less than those of 1944-45. The various Departments
and Services of the Governmen,t increased their expenditures by Gdes.
2,179,093.12 while payments on account of the public debt declined by
Gdes. 4,318,159.15.
In connection with the decline in payments on account of the Public
Debt it is pertinent to remark that a considerable portion of the amounts
due for amortization in, 1945-46, namely a sum of Gdes. 4,000,000, had
been paid at the end of the fiscal year 1944-45. No corresponding payment
was made at the end of the fiscal year under review on account of amounts
falling due in, 1946-47. The remainder of the decline in public debt ex-
penditures, amounting to Gdes. "318,159.15 was accounted for, primarily,
by savings on interest resulting from amortization payments.

Disbursements of Departments and Services
Expenditures of the Garde d'Haiti amounted to Gdes. 9,721,685.12 or
Gdes. 779,808.59 more than the amount disbursed in the fiscal year 1944-
45. The greater part of the increase resulted from the increases in salaries
of enlisted men and non commissioned officers of the Garde d'Haiti which
were accorded in the first half of the fiscal year 1945-46. Additional ex-
penses were also incurred for transportation and other purposes, as a result
of the strikes and other disturbances which occurred during the year.
The Department of Public Works was particularly active during the
fiscal year 1945-46, having disbursed some Gdes. 929,000 more than in
the preceding year. Some of the more important projects undertaken, with
funds made available to the Department of Public Works and the amounts
expended thereon in 1945-46 were as follows:
Gourdes
Paving road, Puilboreau ............................................. 175,865.72
Reconstruction wharf for coastwise traffic, Port-au-Prince.... 157,100.00
Construction road, Gros-Morne-Pilate ........................... 126,047.83
-Partihl relocation road Port-au-Prince---Mirebalais................ 99,907.84
The Department of National Education, expended Gdes. 3,938,074.15,
or Gdes. 769,729.07 more than in the previous year. This increase is ex-
plained primarily by the fact that the rural schools which had formerly
been under the supervision of the Department of Agriculture were trans-
ferred to the Department of National Education in the early part of the
fiscal year.
Expenditures on account of public health amounted to Gdes.
3,223,972.64, or Gdes. 125,560.87 more than in 1944-45. The Public
Health. Service formerly functioned under the Ministry of Interior but
in the first quarter of the fiscal year 1945-46 a new Ministry of Public
Health was created and a portion of the additional expenditures was ac-
counted for by this reorganization.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The Agricultural Service expended Gdes. 2,000,327.76, or Gdes.
407,147.54 less than the 'amount expended in the previous year. As stated
above, this Service formerly administered the rural schools. The transfer
of these schools to the Department of National Education in the latter
part of the year accounted, in large measure, for the reduction in expen-
ditures of the Agricultural Service.
Extraordinary expenditures of the Agricultural Service in 1945-46 in,-
cluded Gdes. 250,000, representing Haiti's contribution, for the year,
toward work of the Cooperative Food Production Program 'initiated in
September 1944 by the Haitian Department of Agriculture and the Ins-
titute of Inter-American Affairs, Food Supply Division. Another ex-
traordinary expenditure of Gdes. 125,000 was made for the execution of
reforestation and soil conservation, work on La Gonave Island.
The expenditures of the Department of Interior showed a decline of
Gdes. 325,303.35 from those of 1944-45, in spite of the expenditure of
Gdes. 346,441.67 under an extraordinary appropriation, for legislative
elections. The decline is -explained by the fact that no disbursements were
made under the appropriations for the Presidency and the Legislature for
a period of several months following the political changes which occurred
in. January 1946.
Expenditures both of the Department of Finance and the Department of
Justice rose by some Gdes. 42,000, when comparison is made with the
1944-45 statistics.
Disbursements of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la
Ripublique d'Haiti increased to the extent of Gdes. 158,815.50. A further
analysis of these expenditures will be carried in a subsequent paragraph.
The Internal Revenue Service disbursed Gdes. 1,429,966.25, or Gdes.
81,915.25 less than in, the preceding year. The principal decrease occurred
in connection with the purchase of supplies and equipment.
The cost of operation of the Department of Foreign Affairs declined by
Gdes. 39,381.06 when comparison is made with the fiscal year 1944-45.
Expenditures for administration, personnel, and for the Embassies, Lega-
tions and Consulates rose considerably .but were more than offset by the
decline under the appropriation for expenses of special Diplomatic Mis-
sions.
The Department of Commerce and Natiorial Economy expended Gdes.
653,920.64 or Gdes. 29,181.15 less than in the preceding year.
Payments on account of International Institutions amounted to Gdes.
468,557.33 or Gdes. 173,687.80 more than in the preceding year. The
payments included Gdes. 250,000 representing the Haitian Government's
contribution to the expenses of the American Sanitary Mission and Gdes.

*Credit.

During the course of the fiscal year 1945-46, relatively important salary
increases were accorded to the members of the personnel of the medium
and lower paid brackets. The wages of laborers employed in handling
imported merchandise at the custom-house, Port-au-Prince, were also
sharply increased. These combined upward adjustments resulted in
disbursements for salaries and wages of Gdes. 1,296,012.59, or Gdes.
167,563.42 more than in, the previous year.
Disbursements of the Fiscal Department, B. N. R. H., under the headings
other than salaries and wages showed a net decline of Gdes. 8,747.92
from the amounts expended in 1944-45. Due to rises in prices, supplies and
materials cost some Gdes. 12,000 more than in the preceding year.
Transportation, communication and equipment charges showed little
change from the preceding year. Disbursements for repairs and maintenance
and'special and miscellaneous expenses showed relatively sharp declines.
It is pertinent to remark at this point that toward the end of the
preceding fiscal year an extraordinary appropriation of Gdes. 100,000
was opened to the Department of Finance for repair and maintenance of
customs properties and for the construction of a custom-house at Malpasse
on the Haitian-Dominican frontier. In the course of 1945-46, the sum
of Gdes. 91,112.44 was expended under the said account.

It will be seen that current assets rose by some Gdes. 4,586,000 from
the September 30, 1945 figure and that investments increased slightly.
The sharp decline in other assets occurred principally under the fiduciary
currency account. The total of current and other liabilities showed a slight
decline, while the surplus rose some Gdes. 3,793,000.00 from the
September 30, 1945 figures.

The Public Debt

The gross public debt of the Republic of Haiti on September 30, 1946,
amounted to Gdes. 49,448,437.50, as compared with Gdes. 52,936,-
369.30, as of September 30, 1945. Table No. 44 (See Appendix)
presents the statement of the public debt at the end of each fiscal year
since 1915. For convenient comparison, the portion of that table which

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The Series A and Series C fiscal agency contracts provide that any moneys
in, the sinking fund which shall not have been applied to purchase of
bonds at least 70 days prior to the first day of October in any year
shall be applied on such first ,day of October to the redemption of bonds,
by lot, at the redemption price of 100 per cent of the principal amount
thereof. In conformity with this provision, of the contracts the sums of
Gdes. 2,072,500 and Gdes. 249,183.35 were set aside from the Series A
and Series C sinking funds, respectively, to be applied on October, 1, 1946
to the redemption, at par, of a corresponding principal amount of Series A
and Series C bonds.
Total expenditures from revenue for service of the public debt amounted
to Gdes. 6,168,372.50 during the fiscal year 1945-46. Expenditures for
interest, amortization, and handling charges on Series A bonds, Series C
bonds ana the advances under the Public Works Contract of 1938, were
as follows:
Interest Amortization Expenses Total
Gourdes Gourdes Gourdes Gourdes
Series A bonds................ 1,703,250.00 1,290,000.00 19,140.95 3,012,390.95

All interest payments for the year on the outstanding indebtedness of
the Republic of Haiti 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 1945-46. Of this amount, Gdes. 2,000,000 were paid
towards the end of the preceding year, as an advance, while the balance
of Gdes. 1,500,000, as indicated in the above table, was paid in the course
of the fiscal year 1945-46. The amortization, schedule relative to the
advances received under the Public Works Contract of 1938 provided for
the payment of Gdes. 4,000,000 during the fiscal year 1945-46. Half
of this amount, however, was paid in advance during the latter part of
the preceding fiscal year. The above table, therefore, reflects only the
remaining Gdes. 2,000,000 which were paid in the course of the fiscal
year under review.
The Budget
The budget for the fiscal year 1945-46 as originally promulgated in
tLe Moniteuri of September 13, 1945, estimated receipts at Gdes.
36,680,600, and authorized expenditures of a similar 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






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


a sum of Gdes. 1,000,000 for service of the public debt. The following
table shows that total expenditure authorizations in, 1945-46 reached
Gdes. 42,200,452.40 while expenditures totalled Gdes. 40.377,217.94:

1946) the budget of the fiscal year 1945-46 was prorogued for the first
three months of the fiscal year 1946-47.


Banking and Currency

Haiti is served by two banks, the Banque Nationale de la Ripublique
d'Haiti, which is owned by the Haitian Government, an,d 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 depositary of all revenues and public funds of whatsoever nature
of the Government of Haiti.

The two banking institutions referred to above recorded average loans
and discounts during 1945-46 totalling Gdes. 8,262,293.90, as compared
with Gdes. 7,461,906.62 in the preceding fiscal year.

Bank deposits showed a moderate increase in 1945-46. Excluding
Government accounts, deposits averaged Gdes. 40,140,691.08 in 1945-46,
as compared with Gdes. 39,275,993.92 in 1944-45, and Gdes. 31,389,-
973.98 in 1943-44.

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
1941-42................................................ 14,401,317
1942-43................................................ 20,931,053

1944-45................................................ 23,492,204
1945-46............................................. ... 24,778,105

There has been a steady upward trend in the circulation of gourde
notes during recent years. This was particularly noticeable at the end
of the fiscal year 1945-46 when circulation stood at Gdes. 27,851,451.
The circulation of subsidiary currency as well as estimated circulation of
United States currency also seem to have reached a record at the close of
1945-46. This sharp increase in currency circulation, is accounted for
primarily, it is believed, by the fact that Haitian producers and processors
have received very high prices for Haitian commodities, such as coffee,
-bananas, sisal and sugar, sold abroad, and the further factor that, due to
world shortages of consumer goods, it has been impossible to import
sufficient merchandise to satisfy local demands. There has consequently
been built up in the course of recent years a very substantial export balance
and this unutilized purchasing power is largely held in the hands of the
producers and is reflected in the increased circulation of currency indicated
in the above tables.






IANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


The average monthly deposits in banks in Haiti, exclusive of Government
deposits, have shown, a constant upward trend during the past few years, as
indicated in the following table:
Gourdes
1941-42............................................. 15,271,935.52
1942-43........................................... 24,214,759.22
1943-44................................................ 31,389,973.98
1944-45................................................ 39,275,993.92
1945-46 ............................................... 40,140,691.08
The rising trend appears to reflect a general improvement in business
due perhaps, in large measure, to higher prices received for Haitian products
as a result of war conditions during recent years as well as to a shortage
of consumer goods.
Supply Services
The Central Supply Office known as the continued, in 1945-46, 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 Govern-
ment. The purchase, for Government account, of material other than
office supplies, is handled by the an organization
which, since December 21, 1944, has functioned as a part of the Banque
National de la Republique d'Haiti, Commercial Department. In spite of
the various restrictions on exports from the United States and trans-
portation difficulties, both the' l'Etat, were able to maintain, during the year under review, fairly adequate
stocks of various supplies required by the Government Services.
The Mohegan Trading Corporation of New York continued to act as
Purchasing Agent of the Haitian Government in the United' States during
1945-46 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 1945-46 appears in Table No. 46 (See Appendix), while the
balance sheet as of September 30, 1946, is carried in Table No. 47.

Communal Accounts
During the five fiscal years ended with 1945-46, communal funds have
been collected, classified 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 Repu-
blique d'Haiti -Fiscal Department, since the beginning of the fiscal year
1941-42. Table No. 54 (See Appendix) 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 five years that the communal accounts have been subject
to the general budgetary and accounting regulations:

As stated in a previous section of this Report, there was transferred from
the indicated surplus at the close of 1945-46 a sum of Gdes. 259,831.25,
which was credited as miscellaneous receipts of the Public Treasury. The
said amount represented three quarters of the expenditures effected by the
Public Treasury in connection with the Legislative Elections which were
held May 12, 1946, and the transfer was authorized by the law published
in "Le Moniteur" No. 28 of March 18, 1946.
In accordance with the decree-law No. 443 of September 26, 1944
("Le Moniteur" No. 80 dated September 28, 1944), the communal
surpluses are subject to expenditure in conformity with the following
schedule, which also indicates the amount of the expenditures during
1944-45 under the several headings:

The unobligated balance of the combined Communal Reserve Account
as of September 30, 1946. amounted to Gdes. 278,239.98.

foreign Trade Values

Higher prices paid by toreign consumers for certain Haitian exports,
notably coffee, bananas, cotton,, and other agricultural products carried
export values in 1945-46 to a level which had not been reached since
the days immediately following World War I.
Exports in 1945-46 were valued at Gdes. 114,116,814. This figure
represented an increase of Gdes. 28,555,140 over the value of Gdes.







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


85,561,674 reported under the heading of exports for 1944-45. During
the fiscal year ended September 30, 1919, exports were valued at Gdes.
123,811,096. With the exception of the latter figure, exports for 1944-45
were higher than any previously recorded since the present method of
compiling trade statistics was instituted.
The value of imports in 1945-46 rose by Gdes. 13,838,803 to Gdes.
79,607,704, a figure approximating the value of Gdes. 80,155,339
recorded two years previously in 1943-44. Except for the latter year, the
value of imports in 1945-46 was greater than. for any year since 1928-29
when goods valued at Gdes. 86,189,612 were imported into Haiti.
The following table shows the value of imports and exports and the
trade balance for each of the past ten years:

The cumulative export balance of Gdes. 59,158,837 built up during
the five years ended September 30, 1946 compared with a cumulative
import balance of Gdes. 25,603,040 established during the previous five-
year period. The figures are a striking illustration of the extent to which
Haiti's foreign trade position was strengthened during the war years.
Percentage of Imports by Countries of Origin
The following table shows the relative share of Haiti's import trade
held by the principal supplying countries:

The above figures indicate no significant changes in the trend of Haiti's
import trade other than thb gradual recovery, following th: war y2ars, of
the share held by the United States. For a time, in, 1943-44, textiles from
Mexico had been imported into Haiti in relatively large quantities.

Imports from the United States of America
Notable among the changes which occurred in Haitian import trade
during 1945-46 were sharp increases in imports of manufactures of cotton,

The decline in imports of wheat flour and soap and lard from the United
States in 1945-46 reflects the world shortage of these commodities.
Presumably, the additional amounts of flour and fats which might have
been consumed in Haiti, in 1945-46, were shipped by the United States
to needy countries elsewhere. Imports of machinery and apparatus during
the year were largely for new industrial establishments in Haiti.

The decline in imports of foodstuffs and soap was more than compensated
by increases under other headings, notably textiles, machinery, apparatus,
clothing, automobiles, trucks, rubber products and tobacco products.

Although prices, on the whole, tended to rise in Haiti in 1945-46
there were notable exceptions to the trend such as soap, fish and gasoline
prices which declined and cement and kerosene prices which remained
unchanged. It is of interest, though of relatively small importance, to note
a sharp drop in the price of the luxury item, perfumery.

Although there has been a small increase during the post-war period as
compared with the war years in the proportion of imports entering Haiti
through certain ports other than Port-au-Prince, the preponderant
importance of the Capital city as the. chief port of entry into Haiti is
strikingly illustrated by the above figures.

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 1945-46, as compared with 1944-45, is shown below:

The decline in the percentage of Haitian. exports taken by the United
States of America in 1945-46 and the increase in Cuba's share, reflects,
in large measure, diversion of shipments of Haitian coffee to markets other
than the United States of America. The increase in Colombia's share of
Haitian export trade is due largely to increased purchases of Haitian cotton.


Exports to the United States of America

The sharp drop in Haitian exports of coffee to the United States, despite
an increase in the total value of Haitian coffee exports, is interesting. Bel-
gium, Canada, Cuba, Italy, Norway, Switzerland and other European
countries were all large purchasers of Haitian coffee in 1945-46. Presum-
ably, the decline in the amount of Haitian coffee sold to the United States
during the year under review was due to the fact that better prices for the
product were obtainable in other markets.

Bananas, in 1945-46, assumed increased importance as one of Haiti's
chief export products. It is interesting to note also the increased importance
during the year under review of sisal and cotton among Haitian exports.

The sharp increase in total export values in 1945-46 was fairly well
distributed throughout the entire list of export commodities. Exports of
sugar, alone, defined both in volume and value. There was a notable
increase in volume as well as in value of sisal and banana exports in
1945-46.

The larger amounts of Haitian coffee purchased in 1945-46 by European
and other countries was an interesting feature of Haitian, trade during the
year under review. As suggested in a preceding paragraph of this Report,
the decline in exports of coffee to the United States was presumably due,
at least in part, to higher prices offered elsewhere.

The volume and value of cotton exports during the past three years are
shown below:

Colombia is the chief purchaser of Haitian cotton. The above table
indicates that in 1945-46 a much higher price was paid for,approximately
the same amount of cotton as had been purchased two years previously.
The price per kilo of cotton for each of the past six years is shown

The above table shows that there has been a consistent rise in the price
of cotton since 1940-41.
Raw Sugar Exports

There was a decline in both the volume and value of Haitian sugar
exports in 1945-46:

It may be of interest to recall here that export duties on sugar prior to
June 5, 1945, were assessed at specific rates on a sliding scale based on the
New York Sugar Exchange quotations. The law of June 5, 1945, abro-
gated this rather cumbersome method and provided for an ad valorem rate
on the FOB price of sugar. The year 1945-46 was the first full fiscal-year
during which this new tax was applied.
There was a sharp rise in both the volume and value of sisal exports in
1945-46, as shown below:

1945-46....................... 16,821,334 14,740,732

The major portion of Haiti's sisal exports in 1945-46 went to the
United States.
The price of sisal over a period of the past ten years is shown below:

It will be seen from the above table that unit prices for sisal exported
were lower in, 1945-46 than in 1944-45. The explanation of the lower
unit prices lies in the fact that much larger quantities of low grade sisal
were shipped in 1945-46 than in 1944-45 and, as a consequence, the
average price received per kilo was less.


Banana Exports

Banana exports have shown a consistent and marked increase both in
volume and value during the last three fiscal years:

The increase in exports of bananas through the southern ports of Cayes,
Jacmel, Jeremie and Miragoine is of interest. This increase is presumably
due to the extension, by decree-law of April 23, 1945 ( No.
34, dated April 26, 1945) to independent operators in the southern dis-
tricts, of facilities theretofore reserved for the Standard Fruit & SS.
Company of Hayti.
Handicraft Exports
The remarkable expansion of the sisal shoe and slipper industry over
the period of the past three years is strikingly illustrated below. From a
modest beginning of Gdes. 20,157 in 1943-44 exports of these products
rose to Gdes. 3,323,239 in 1945-46.

Although exports of mahogany ware and of straw shoes and slippers
declined in 1945-46, there has, on the whole, been a steady and encou-
raging growth during recent years of the Haitian handicraft industry.

The growth of both the handicraft and essential oil industries has been
an interesting feature of Haitian trade during recent years. Before the war,
exports under the two headings were negligible. As of the end of 1945-46
handicraft and essential oils ranked high in the list of Haiti's chief export
products.
Air Traffic

Passenger traffic by Air declined in 1945-46. It is of interest, in. this
connection, to note that although several new Air Services have, in the





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


past year and more made Port-au-Prince a port of call, flights to and from
Haiti scheduled by Pan American Airways have been reduced.

There was a notable increase in 1945-46 in outgoing Air Express. It is
interesting to note that the declared value of outgoing Air Express showed
a very much smaller increase, proportionately, than the increases in weight
and in the number of packages shipped.

Maritime Traffic Increases

A substantial increase in, the net tonnage of vessels entering Haitian ports
occurred during the fiscal year 1945-46 as compared with 1944-45. The
number of vessels involved, however, declined as shown below:

Number

1944-45...................................... 786 191,402
1945-46...................................... 634 511,385
There was increased activity in Haitian waters during the fiscal year
under review, as recovery from the low point reached during war years
gained momentum. Several large companies, however, whose ships, before
the war, touched Haitian ports, were slow to re-establish regular services.
This lack of regular services combined with inadequate facilities constituted
a problem from the point of view of the development of both passenger
and freight traffic.

Coastwise Traffic Accidents Decrease
It is satisfactory to make of record the fact that fewer deaths resulted
from ships wrecked while engaged in Haitian coastwise traffic in 1945-46






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


than during any of the four years during which statistics relating to this
traffic have been kept. The number of vessels lost, however, was still high,
as shown below:

1945-46...................................... 31 13

Registration and numbering of all vessels engaged in Haitian coastwise
traffic was undertaken as a war emergency measure in 1942. The practice
has now become a permanent feature of the Haitian Port Service. The
Port authorities announce storm warnings and endeavor to assure the safety
of ships and passengers by guarding against overloading and by controlling
the movements of vessels. Unfortunately. since most of the boats are small
enough to sail from and land at will, almost anywhere along the coast, it
is difficult to exercise effective control over either cargoes or movements.

Building Activity Declines
Figures compiled by the Department of Public Works show that buil-
ding activity in the Port-au-Prince area declined in 1945-46 as compared
with 1944-45.
The table presented below shows the number of buildings constructed
and the value of the construction contracts negotiated during the year
ended September 30, 1946 as compared with the previous fiscal year. The
figures relate to P&tionviIle as well as to Port-au-Prince. The former resort
town is situated in the hills only a few miles away from Port-au-Prince
and may, for practical purposes, be considered -as part of the metropolitan
area:

Port-au-Prince .................. 127 3,433,832 193 3,273,992
Ptionville ........................ 17 404,637 36 946,100

In view of the substantial export balance built up by Haiti during the
war years, it seems reasonable to assume that the decline in building activity
in 1945-46 was due to reasons other than the lack of capital. The expla-
nation may lie, at least in part, in the difficulty of obtaining building
materials and other supplies from abroad.

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 October 1, 1944.







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


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, bet-
ween. 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:

Contribution to Joint Program
Institute of
Inter-American Haitian
Affairs Government
October 1944...................... $125,000 $25,000
S 1945........................ 100,0.00 50,000
1946..................... 75,000 75,000
It has been further agreed that on the completion, as of September 30,
1947, of this Cooperative Health Program, the Haitian Government will
endeavor within the limits of its available funds to maintain the projects
executed.
The work of the American Sanitary Mission in 1945-46 consisted of:
(1) Sanitary Engineering, including malaria control, drainage, sewage
disposal, water supply, construction, etc; (2) Anti-yaws campaign:
(3) Scholarships for Haitian nationals in the United States of America;
(4) Cooperation in Health Education; (5) Nurses training Program.
A brief Summary of Activities under each of the foregoing headings
follows:
(1) Malaria control drainage and other engineering work designed to
improve health conditions was carried forward at Leogane, Gonaives,
Sigueneau Asylum, Normal School, Croix des Bossales, Bizoton,, Maison
Central des Arts et Metiers, Portail Leogane, IGeneral Hospital, La Saline
and Fort Lamentin.

(2) Yaws Clinics have been established at the following nine localities:
Gressier, Kenscoff, Cayes-Jacmel, Vialet, Petite-Riviere de Nippes, Aquin,
Maniche, Moron an.d Mirebalais. During the year, there were 316,081
clinic visits and 575,952 treatments given. 126,850 new patients were
received during the year.
In cooperation with the Surgeon General's Office of the United States
Army 500 yaws patients have been treated with penicillin with excellent
results.

(3) At the present time 14 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.







B'ANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


(4) Lectures and demonstrations have been carried on at the Normal
School and at the Agriculture School at Damien, in cooperation with the
Ministry of Health.
(5) The Nurses School conducted by the American Sanitary Mission
has been affiliated with the National University and in May 1946 gra-
duated 28 well-trained nurses.

Cooperative Food Production Program t
It may be recalled that on August 29, 1944, the Haitian and United
States Governments agreed to sponsor, jointly, a program designed to in- t
crease food production in Haiti. The program called for contributions
totalling $175,000. Of this amount $125,000 was paid by the Institute e
of Inter-American Affairs and $50,00D was paid by the Haitian Govern-
ment.
On June 25, 1945 an was negotiated, providing
for additional payments of $50,000 by each of the two contracting parties.
During the fiscal year 1945-46 the Cooperative Food Production Pro-
gram of the Institute of Inter-American, Affairs terminated the emergency
phase of its activities which included distribution of seed, small tools and
plants to give assistance in quickly returning the Cryptostegia lands to the
production of food crops, and entered into a program designed to assist
in the solution of longer range agricultural problems. This second phase
included a limited rehabilitation project on the island of La Gonave con-
sisting, principally, of improvements to springs and trails and in testing,
selecting and distributing vegetable and field crop seeds.
The animal work at the Hinche Papaye Farm was intensified. The farm
is being developed in cooperation with the Haitian Govern.ment as a live-
stock center to serve the Central Plain region. The Haitian Government
with the cooperation of the Food Supply Mission is continuing the nursery
work begun in 1944 and is administering the storage facilities provided last
year.
Three Haitian agronomists were given training grants for practical study
in Puerto Rico where conditions resemble those existing in Haiti and where
the United States has provided excellent training facilities. Other students
are being selected from the staff of the Department of Agriculture.
A short summer course for rural farm school teachers and agricultural
agents offering practical field training in a wide variety of agricultural
subjects was held at Damien with the cooperation of the staff of the Di-
rection Genrale de l'Agriculture.
The reclamation of the Cabaret-Torcelles irrigation project was under-
taken and at the close of the fiscal year the work was reported to be pro-

gressing satisfactorily. The main dam was being repaired, a masonry canal
660 meters long was being constructed and repairs and protective works
were being provided to permit the full utilization of the system.

Bank Board Reorganized
As of September 30, 1946, the terms of office of the three American
members of the Board of Directors of the Banque Nationale de la Repu-
blique d'Haiti expired. These three members, Messrs. W. H. Williams,
Co-President, Thomas Pearson and E. F. Roosevelt, had been serving on
the Board since October 1, 1941, under the terms of the Haitian-American
Executive Agreement of September 13, 1941. It will be recalled that Ar-
ticle 3 of this Agreement provides that "all of the voting members of the
Board shall hold office for a period of five years and shall not be removed
except for cause".
On September 30, 1946, Article 3 of the Executive Agreement of Sep-
tember 13, 1941 was amended by an Exchange of Notes between the Go-
vernments of Haiti and the United States of America. This Amendment
provided for the substitution of four voting members.of the Board,-two
citizens of Haiti and two citizens of the United States, for six voting
members, three Haitians and three Americans. The Amendment further
provided that the terms commencing October 1, 1946, should continue
until September 30, 1947 only.
As of September 30, 1946, by. a further Exchange of Notes between the
Governments of Haiti and the United States of America, Messrs. W. H.
Williams and Thomas Pearson were designated for additional terms, as
the two United States citizens, voting members of the Board of Directors
of the National Bank of the Republic of Haiti,' with the proviso that the
terms commencing October 1, 1946, should continue until September 30,
1947 only. At the same time, the functions of Mr. W. H. Williams as
Co-President of the Bank, and Representative of the Holders of the Boads
of 1922 arid 1923, were renewed.
The Haitian Government as of September 30, 1946, designated Messrs.
Gaston Margron and Emmanuel Th6zan as Haitian members of the Board
of Directors of the Banque Nationale de la Republiqure d'Haiti to serve
until September 30, 1947. Mr. Thezan is a member of the'local business
community while Mr. Margron, who for many years had served as a mem-
ber of the official staff of the BNRH, was serving at the time of his ap-
pointment to the Board, as Haitian Minister of Finance.

Conclusion
The fiscal year ended September 30, 1946 was notable for continued
trade expansion and rising Government receipts. The record is impressive
in view of political uncertainty in Haiti following the Revolution of Jan-
uary 1946 and in view of strikes and other difficulties abroad, attendant





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D HAlTL


on the reconversion of the world's industrial machine to purposes of peace.
Haitian export and import values and revenue collections soared in
1945-46 to levels which had seldom been surpassed. Because of shortages
resulting from the war, Haitian agricultural products were being sold
abroad in large quantities at rising prices. While the prices of'imported
goods were also rising, imports into Haiti were being restricted, among
other reasons, because of the continued exercise of controls over exports by
the United States. As a result, Haitian exports in 1945-46 exceeded im-
ports by a very large margin.
It is satisfactory to report this building up of a large export balance in
1945-46. It should, however, be noted that because of the controls exer-
cised over exports from the United States and for other reasons there was
no adequate outlet abroad for the reserves of purchasing power which were
thus being built up in Haiti. This compression of purchasing power inter-
nally resulted in rising prices, increased currency circulation and other
indications of inflation at home.
At the close of the fiscal year, the outlook for the nearer term future is
bright. There seems to be no reason to anticipate any immediate reversal
of prevailing favorable trends. Trade expansion, notably an increase in
imports, may be expected to continue and Government revenue collections
will, therefore, also continue to increase.
It would seem in order, however, to stress once again the inflationary
factors inherent in the situation. Trade gains, and, indirectly, the increase
in Government revenue collections have been largely the result of rising
prices. Sooner or later it may be expected that prices will fall. Events
abroad and other unpredictable factors will also surely affect economic
conditions in; Haiti. Present prosperity has resulted from pressures artificially
created by the abnormal fact of war. It would, therefore, be well to begin.
now to plan against the time when prices fall and Government expenditures
will have to be brought back into line with reduced income.
