For the Fiscal Year

OCTOBER 1946 SEPTEMBER 1947

Port-au-Prince, Haiti January 15, 1947

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

Gentlemen:

On October 1, 1947, the Executive Agreement of September 13, 1941
between the Governments of Haiti and the United States of America, con-
cerning the payment of the external debt, came to expiration, by virtue of
the Law on the Internal Loan, the complete text of which is appended
hereto.
In July 1947 the funds necessary for the complete liquidation of the
1922 and 1923 external loans were made available and the Haitian Go-
vernment, on October 1, 1947 thus regained its complete financial freedom.
In conformity with Article 11 of the above mentioned law, His Ex-
cellency the President of the Republic appointed, for a period of five years,
the following gentlemen as members of the Board of Directors of the
National Bank of the Republic of Haiti:
Emmanuel Th6zan
Gaston Margron
C. E. van Waterschoodt
A. M. Herres
Christian Aim6

The Board of Directors proceeded to elect Mr. C. E. van Waterschoodt
as Vice President of the Bank, in charge of the Commercial Department,
and Mr. Alexandre Dominique as Vice President of the Bank, in charge
of the Fiscal Department.







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Subsequently, Mr. Gaston Margron was replaced as Secretary of State
for Finance by Mr. Emmanuel Th6zan and became Co-President & Ge-
neral Manager of the Bank. Mr. Th6zan, already a member of the Board,
was appointed Co-President of this Institution.
Since 1915, a report on the Commerce and the Finances of Haiti has
always been prepared at the close of each fiscal year, first by the Office
of the Financial Adviser General Receiver, then by the Office of the
Fiscal Department, which succeeded the latter. The law of July 12, 1947,
fixing the-attributes of the Commercial and Fiscal Departments of the
Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti, does not mention these
periodical reports. However, the Fiscal Department contemplates con-
tinuing their publication as well as that of the monthly bulletins which
constitute an authoritative source of current information on the economic
life of Haiti and in which there appears to be an ever-increasing interest
on the part of the public.
The present report covers the period from October I, 1946 to September
30, 1947, during which the Service was under the direction of Mr. Thomas
Pearson. Mr. Pearson, formerly a member of the American Commission
in charge of the Reorganization of the Finances of Persia and, more re-
cently, Deputy General Receiver of Dominican Customs, was Vice Presi-
dent of the Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti, in charge of the
Fiscal Department, from October 1, 1941, to September 30, 1947.

It is also opportune to recall at this point that during the same period
of six years Mr. W. H. Williams was Co-President and General Manager
of the National Bank. Mr. Williams had previously held various positions
of importance with the Bank over a period of many years.
During a ceremony held on October I, 1947 at the Banque Nationale de
la R6publique d'Haiti, the Haitian Government decorated Mr. Williams
and Mr. Pearson as Officers in the National Order in token of its appreciation of the services rendered to the Republic of
Haiti by these distinguished gentlemen.


Government Receipts

Total revenue receipts during the fiscal year 1946-47 amounted to Gdes.
65,266,415.49 which represented an all-time high record. The nearest
approach to these returns was recorded in 1927-28 when total fiscal re-
ceipts amounted to Gdes. 50,421,016.49. Government revenues during
1946-47 exceeded those of 1945-46 by 46.5%. \

While internal revenues increased considerably over the 1945-46 collec-
tions, customs receipts showed a relatively much higher rise and, con-
sequently, accounted for a larger proportion of total revenues.

Customs Collections
Total receipts from customs amounted to Gdes. 52,424,965.72 or 80.33
per cent of all Government collections. Import duties increased by 53.8
per cent and export duties by 78.7 per cent while miscellaneous customs
receipts almost doubled.
The increase in import revenues reflects the receipt of a larger volume
of certain kinds of foreign articles such as cotton goods, gasoline and
kerosene, cigarettes and, tobacco, wool, linen, silk goods and jute bags,
foodstuffs other than flour, chemical and pharmaceutical products, iron and
steel products, glassware, soap and motor vehicles. 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 1945-46, were as follows:


1946-47

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Duties on cotton goods were, by far, the most important source of import
revenues. These duties accounted for 25 per cent of all import taxes and
15 per cent of total government revenues in 1946-47. The duties on flour
were some Gdes. 640,000 less than in 1945-46 while those on gasoline
and kerosene increased by Gdes. 503,000. Revenues from wool, linen,
silk goods and jute bags, as well as those from foodstuffs other than flour
were approximately double the amounts collected the prior fiscal year.
Aside from' flour, declines from 1945-46 duties were recorded under the
schedules covering rubber goods, paper, cement and lumber. The very
sharp rise of Gdes. 3,400,000 in duties derived from imports other than
those specifically named in the above table is worthy of note.

Export Revenues
Export revenues by sources were as follows in 1946-47 and 1945-46:
1946-47 1945-46
Gourdes Per cent Gourdes Per cent
Coffee .............................. 6,942,031 52.15 5,090,070 68.33
Bananas .......................... 3,243,809 24.37 370,864 4.98
Sugar .............................. 2,369,527 17.80 1,106,665 14.86
Sisal ................................ 300,673 2.26 274,393 3.68
Goatskins .......................... 70,964 0.54 56,815 0.76
Cotton .............................. 5,617 0.04 102,035 1.37
All other .......................... 378,357 2.84 447,978 6.02
13,310,978 100.00 7,448,820 100.00
The regular specific duty on coffee was supplemented in the course of
1946-47 by a tax which varies with the market price of coffee. This new
tax was primarily responsible for the increase of Gdes. 1,852,000 in the
revenues derived from coffee exports, the quantity having been only
slightly higher than in 1945-46. Bananas had also, in previous years,
been subject to a nominal specific duty but, as in the case of coffee, a new
tax which varies with the market price came into effect during 1946-47 and
accounted largely for the sharp increase in duties noted in the above table.
The ad valorem tax on sugar was increased in the course of the year. This
explains, in part, the indicated rise in the export duties derived from sugar.
However, a larger volume and higher market prices for sugar were factors
of greater importance.
Miscellaneous Customs Receipts
Miscellaneous customs receipts amounted to Gdes. 549,792.24 during
the fiscal year 1946-47 as compared with Gdes. 279,956.06 in the pre-
ceding year. Storage charges and certain other minor sources showed
increases, but the sharpest rise, amounting to some Gdes. 233,000.00, was
accounted for by increased receipts from the service charge for handling
imported merchandise at the Port-au-Prince custom house. This service
charge is based on tonnage and the increased receipts reflect to some ex-
tent an increase in the volume of imports. A further explanation of the
increase lies in the fact that in the course of 1946-47 it became necessary







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 5

to increase the rate of'the service charge in order to make possible certain
pay increases for laborers engaged in the handling of imports.

Internal Revenues
Internal revenue receipts again established an all-time high record in
1946-47, having amounted to Gdes. 1,933,060.90, as compared with Gdes.
10,878,482.34 in the previous year. The latter figure had previously re-
presented the high point of internal revenue 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 1945-46, is also shown:

Vegetable oils (excise).......................... 104,307.39 94,039.15-
The income tax was, by far, the principal source of internal revenues,
having accounted for 40.6 per cent of the total. This tax also represented
7.4 per cent of total fiscal receipts for 1946-47. The increase of Gdes.
480,848.51 may be ascribed to larger business profits since nb increase in
the rates occurred during the fiscal year 1946-47.
The next most important source of internal revenue was the excise
tax on cigarettes which amounted to Gdes. 1,432,336.10 or Gdes. 155,806.03
more than the amount collected in 1945-46. This tax accounted for 12.0
per cent of total internal revenue receipts in 1946-47.
Receipts from documentary stamps and recording fees recorded rela-
tively sharp increases. In fact almost all of the principal sources of internal
revenue yielded considerably more than during the previous year, and
it can be assumed that this record reflects generally improved business
conditions since there was no increase in any of the tax rates during the
year, on account of a stamp policy which has been given up but which, it
would seem, should be reinstated.
The outstanding exception was the receipts from the sale of postage
stamps which declined by Gdes. 413,282.77 from the 1945-46 collections.
This decline is accounted for in part by a reduction in the air mail tariff
which became effective during the year. Furthermore, the volume of
shipments by parcel post of products of small industries sisAl handbags,
shoes, etc. decreased, while sales to stamp collectors appear to have
declined.

Telephone, Telegraph and Hydraulic Services
At the end of the fiscal year 1943-44, the Telephone and Telegraph
Service and the Hydraulic Service (Urban water systems) became auto-
nomous organizations. Prior to that time, the funds for the operation of
these Services were appropriated under the general expenditure budget of
the Government and the 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 ope-
ration and improvement of the.Services are effected. As a matter of in-
terest, the receipts and expenditures of the two Services during the last
two years of operation as fiscal organizations, as well as during the three
years as autonomous organizations,' are shown below:

Miscellaneous Government Receipts
Miscellaneous receipts of the Government totalled Gdes. 413,302.10
during the fiscal year 1946-47 as compared with Gdes. 443,335.03 in the
prior year. Returns on investments accounted for Gdes. 179,143.35. The
principal source of returns from investments was the dividend of the
Commercial Department of the Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Hai-
ti which amounted to Gdes. 100,000.00. The profits of the Banque Natio-
nale 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 for 1946 amounted to Gdes.
300,000.00, and one-third of this sum was taken up as miscellaneous re-
ceipts of the Government in 1946-47.
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. 234,158.75. The greater portion of this amount represented trans-
fers from non-fiscal accounts for the purpose of covering special appro-
priations.

From the above table it will be seen that expenditures in 1946-47 were
Gdes. 20,061,198.56 (49.6 per cent) above those of 1945-46 and that with,
two exceptions, all Departments and Services disbursed considerably larger
sums than during the previous year.

The sharpest increase occurred under the budget of the public debt.
Payments from revenue during the preceding year toward amortization of
the Series A and Series C external loans amounted to Gdes. 1,500,000
while the similar payments in 1946-47 reached Gdes. 6,173,195.45. It is
pertinent to remark at this point that a law dated July 12, 1947 autho-
rized the flotation of a $10,000,000 Internal Loan for the purpose, primar-
ily, of reimbursing the Series A and Series C external loans and that,
with a portion of the proceeds of this internal loan, the funds necessary to
call all outstanding Series A and C bonds at par as of October I, 1947,
were remitted to the fiscal agent. It is also appropriate to remark that as
a result of the retirement of all bonds of the Series A and C loans, there
came to an end the series of Treaties and Executive Agreements between
the Republic of Haiti and the United States of America, extending over a
period of more than thirty years, under which nominees of the United
States Government participated in the administration of the finances of
Haiti.







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Payments on account of the public debt in 1946-47 included Gdes.
1,092,154.90 remitted t6 the Banque Nationale de la R6publique, fiscal
agent of the new Internal Loan, to cover interest and amortization for the
period July 15 September 30, 1947. Further remarks about the In-
ternal Loan will be found in a subsequent section of this report relative
to the Public Debt.

Disbursements of Departments and Services

As usual the expenditures of the Army were considerably higher than
those of any other Department or Service. Such expenditures, in 1946-47,
amounted to Gdes. 11,464,112.45 or approximately one-fifth of total Go-
vernment disbursements. The increase over the previous year was Gdes.
1,742,427.33 or approximately 18 per cent.
The expenditures of the Department of Public Works showed the
sharpest increase of any Department or Service, having amounted to Gdes.
7,182,749.76 or Gdes. 2,927,619.31 more than during 1945-46. It is in-
teresting to note that expenditures from extraordinary appropriations for
roads and bridges accounted for Gdes. 2,453,141.29, and that budgetary
appropriations for the same purposes were debited with Gdes. 995,073.81.
The Department of National Education expended Gdes. 5,423,579.25
or Gdes. 1,485,505.10 more than during the previous year. The budget of
this department is largely a salary budget, and the rise was principally
accounted for by salary increases and new personnel.
The disbursements of the Department of Public Health amounted to
Gdes. 4,338,476.29 or Gdes. 1,114,503.65 above the expenditures of the
fiscal year 1945-46. Extraordinary expenses included some Gdes. 115,000
for the operation of the tuberculosis sanatorium at Port-au-Prince, which
had previously functioned as a private enterprise, and a similar amount
for typhoid and small pox vaccines.
The disbursements of the Department of Interior were some Gdes.
1,143,000 above those of 1945-46. The increase is explained in large part
by the fact that over a period of several months of the previous year no
payments were effected under the accounts covering the presidency and
the legislature as the result of the overthrow of the Government in January
1946.
I The Agricultural Service expended Gdes. 2,582,264.64 of which more
than half was drawn from extraordinary appropriations. Expenditures
from these appropriations included Gdes. 622,173.71 for various agricul-
tural projects, Gdes. 390,238.95 for drainage work and Gdes. 230,350.17
for the raising of livestock.
The Department of Foreign Affairs recorded expenditures of Gdes.
2,351,571.68 during 1946-47 or some 70 per cent higher than those of the
previous year. The reestablishment of legations and consulates in Europe,






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


following the close of the war, accounted for a considerable part of the
increase. Also, certain new.diplomatic and consular posts were created
during the year. The traveling and other expenses of members of the
diplomatic and consular corps and of special representatives of the Go-
vernment to international conferences, etc. showed a large increase.
The expenditures of the Fscal Department of the Banque Nationale de
la R6publique d'Haiti were Gdes. 467,459.68 greater than in 1945-46.
Furthei comments on these expenditures will be found in a subsequent
paragraph.
Expenditures of the Department of Justice, as is the case for National
Education and certain other Departments, are principally for salaries and
the rise of some Gdes. 188,000.00 was largely due to increased salary
payments. Extraordinary expenditures of the Department of Justice in
1946-47 included Gdes. 75,254.04 paid to the special Commission named
to inquire into the administration of ex President Lescot.
Disbursements of the Internal Revenue Service rose by Gdes. 298,285.42
due, in large measure, to increased amounts paid to a certain class of its
agents who are paid a percentage of the amounts collected. Salary adjust-
ments, new personnel and construction of new offices also contributed to
the increase.
The Departments of Finances and Agriculture were the only organiza-
tions to register expenditures below those of 1945-46.
Payments to International Institutions amounted to Gdes. 1,568,831.50
or some 1,100,000 more than during the preceding year. Payments under
this account included Gdes. 872,500.00 representing the contribution to
the local food production program sponsored jointly by the Haitian and
United States Governments. A payment of Gdes. 425,000.00 was also
made to the American Sanitary Mission.
The Department of Commerce was reorganized during the year resulting
in an increase of some Gdes. 225,000 in its expenditures.
The Department of Religion recorded an increase of Gdes. 74,684.00.
A considerable number of the clergy were on leave for duty in Europe
during the war. Their resumption of service in Haiti, after the close of the
war, accounted in large part for the increase noted in the disbursements
of the Department of Religion.
The Department of Labor and the Department of National Economy
functioned in 1946-47, for the first time, as separate Department with
independent budgets. Formerly Labor was combined with Agriculture
while National Economy shared the budget of the Department of Com-
merce. Both the Department of Labor and the Department of Commerce
were reorganized at the beginning of 1946-47 and their expenditures during
the year amounted to Gdes. 180,165.12 and Gdes. 125,749.33 respectively.

Fiscal Department, Banque Nationale de la Republique d'Haiti

The expenditures of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de
la R6publique d'Haiti inclusive of those of the Customs Administration, the
Central Accounting Service and the Inspection Service, amounted to Gdes.
1,981,925.37, or Gdes. 467,459.68 more than those in 1945-46, as shown in
the following table:

There were certain minor increases of salaries of regular personnel of
the Fiscal Department during 1946-47, but the rise of some Gdes. 308,000
noted above was principally accounted for by payments to laborers en-
gaged in handling imports at the Custom House at Port-au-Prince. Due
to the increase in the volume of imports more laborers were required.
Furthermore, the hourly rate of pay of laborers was sharply increased in
the course of the year.

The upward trend of prices for paper and other office supplies continued
in 1946-47. Furthermore a larger quantity of such supplies was required
as the result of the sharp increase in the volume of imports and exports
as well as of receipts and expenditures. Consequently the cost of supplies
necessary for the functioning of the Fiscal Department, including the Cus-
toms Administration and the Central Accounting Office of the Government,
showed an increase of Gdes. 36,000 over the amount expended during the
previous year. Transportation, Communications, repairs and maintenance
and miscellaneous expenses also were above the 1945-46 figures.

The relatively important increase of some Gdes. 65,000 in expenditures
for equipment is explained largely by the fact that, during the year, three
of the automobiles of the Service were replaced. Also freight and duties
on a new motor boat for the Port-au-Prince port service were paid. The
F.O.B. price of this boat was charged to an extraordinary appropriation of
the Department of Finance. Other equipment acquired during the year
included typewriters and calculating machines. Furthermore, a sum of
Gdes. 20,000.00 was paid toward the reconstruction of the customs house
at the border port of Belladere.

gulations comprised in the general Law on the Budget and Public Ac-
counting in so far as concerns justifying documents covering expenditures.
Among the most important of the non-fiscal accounts may be mentioned
the Communal Accounts, Civil Pensions, Army Pensions, Army Savings
Account (enlisted men), Telegraph, Telephone and Radio Service, Water
Service, State Lottery, National Coffee Bureau and the Social Assistance
Account.

The outstanding changes from September 30, 1946 to September 30,
1947, were the decrease in current assets (primarily deposits in banks)
and the increase in investments. On July 14, 1947, a law was published
authorizing the flotation of a $10,000,000.00 internal loan for the purpose,
first, of redeeming all outstanding bonds of the external Series A and C
Loans and, second, of executing a program of economic equipment of the
country.

In conformity with the authorization accorded bythis law, the public
treasury and certain non-fiscal accounts invested Gdes. 13,518,838.90 in
bonds of the new internal loan. It is pertinent to remark that promptly
after the close of the fiscal year 1946-47 the liquidity of the treasury ac-
count and of the non fiscal accounts was largely reestablished with the
proceeds of the internal loan which had not been required for the redemp-
tion of the outstanding Series A and Series C bonds.



The Public Debt

The gross public debt of the Republic of Haiti on September 30, 1947,
amounted to Gdes. 49,980,616.70 as compared with Gdes. 49,448,437.50 as
of September 30, 1946. Table No. 44 (See appendix) presents the state-
ment of the public debt at the end of each fiscal year since 1915. For con-
venient comparison, the portion of that table which shows the debt as of
September 30, since 1924 (the year in which, through refunding operations

As previously stated, a law voted in July 1947 authorized the flotation
of a $10,000,000 Internal Loan for the purpose of redeeming the External
ISeries A and C Loans and of executing a program of economic equipment
of the country. The bonds bear five per cent interest payable semi-
annually, and are due July 15, 1957. Amortization payments amount to
S$500,000.00 each six months. The Banque Nationale de la R6publique
Sd'Haiti is the Fiscal Agent. It seems pertinent to reproduce at this point
SArticles 10, 11 and 12 of the law governing the new Internal Loan:
Article 10.-The servicing of the interest and amortization payments
of the Internal Loan constitutes irrevocably a first lien on all the internal
and customs revenues of the Republic of Haiti with priority over all other
debts of the State, with the exception of the engagements previously made
with regard to the as yet unpaid Foreign Debt.
Article 11.-The Government of the Republic undertakes, as of October
I, 1947 and during the entire duration of the present loan, not to modify
the organization and the attributes of the Commercial and Fiscal Depart-
ments of the National Bank of the Republic of Haiti, except as regards the
preparation of the Ways and Means Budget and the expenditures of the
Republic of Haiti and of the Communes. The Government may never-
theless by agreement with the Board of Directors of the National Bank
of the Republic of Haiti, the members of which, five in number, are ap-
pointed for a period of five years beginning October 1, 1947 by the Pre-
sident of the Republic, create such other departments besides those already
in existence as may be judged necessary for the economic development of
the country. The members of the Board may be removed only for
misappropriation, recognized incompetence, improper conduct involving
loss of civil and political rights.
As a consequence of the foregoing, the National Bank of the Republic of
Haiti is irrevocably invested with the following functions:
a) Effect the ordinary transactions of a commercial bank;
b) Effect all the customary transactions of,a State bank;
c) Collect the customs revenues;







14 BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA.REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

d) Receive all customs, internal, and other revenues of the State;
e) -Inspect the collection of the internal revenues;
f) Account for and disburse the funds of the Haitian Government;
g) Make, in Haiti, the registrations stipulated in Articles 6, 7, 8 and
9 of the present law;
h)- Centralize the registrations made abroad as well as in Haiti;
i) Make monthly deductions from the revenues of the State, in con-
formity with Article 12; pay, semi-annually, the sums due\for
interest and amortization payments;
j) Arrange the drawing by lot provided for in Article 13.

Article 12.-The National Bank of the Republic of Haiti is irrevocably
authorized, in conformity with Article 10 and 11, to take each month fron
the internal revenue and the customs receipts of the State, one-twelfth cf
the monies required in order to ensure the interest and amortizatior.
service of the bonds and bond certificates of the present loan.
The Haitian Government undertakes to make the interest and amortiz-
ation payments provided for in the present law in time of peace as well
as of war.
Contractual payments from budgetary and extraordinary appropriations,
up to the time the law authorizing the new Internal Loan was promulgated,
had reduced to Gdes. 24,305,986.20 the amount necessary to call at par as
of October I, 1947 all outstanding Series A and C bonds and to pay all
interest due to that date. The said amount, in conformity with the law
on the new loan, was provided as follows:

The Public Treasury, the.Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti
and the other accounts mentioned received bonds of the new internal loan
to cover the advances made. The Board of Directors of the Bank approved
all operations involving the Bank.
The above mentioned sum of Gdes. 24,305,986.20, derived from the sale
of bonds of the internal loan to the accounts listed, was duly remitted to
the fiscal agent of the Series A and C loans. Therefore, at the end of the
fiscal year 1946-47 the 1922-1923 external loans had been extinguished.





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


It seems appropriate to remark at this point that as the result of the
redemption of the external Series A and C loans the Haitian Government
regained complete liberty of action in the administration of its finances.
The replacement of the external loan by an internal loan will conserve
foreign exchange. The external loan bore six per cent interest whereas
the interest rate on the internal loan is five per cent. Furthermore, the
new internal loan offers opportunities for sound investment not only to
persms residing abroad, but particularly to local institutions (such as the
Barnue Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti), firms and individuals.
The public debt of the Republic consisted of the following at the close

The amount shown for the Internal Loan is the net amount after deduc-
tion of Gdes. 833,333.30 remaining in the amortization account at Sep-
tember 30, 1947.
Total expenditures from revenuefor service of the public debt amounted
to Gdes. 13,652,176.80 during the fiscal year 1946-47 as follows:

All interest and amortization payments for the year on the out standing
indebtedness of the Republic of Haiti were met in full and, as previously
remarked, the external Series A and C loans were completely redeemed
with funds derived from an internal loan.

The Budget
Expenditures during the first several weeks of the fiscal year 1946-47
were based on the budget of the previous year which had been prorogued.
However, in December 1946 the regular budget for the fiscal year was
published. This new budget carried the appropriate adjustments from
October I, 1946, and it may be stated that, from an administrative point
of view, it became effective from the latter date which was the beginning
of the fiscal year 1946-47. The said budget estimated receipts at Gdes.
46,509,163.00 and authorized expenditures of a similar amount. However,
as the year progressed and receipts considerably exceeded expectations, it


. 15





BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


was found necessary or desirable to appropriate further sums fran the
treasury ,surplus. The Departments of Public Works, Agricultur and
National Education were the principal beneficiaries of special credits. The
following table shows that total expenditure authorizations in 1!46-47
reached Gdes. 62,678,739.99 and that effective expenditures totalledGdes.

With reference to the abcve sum of Gdes. 909,390.70 representing
accruals to the operating account of the Internal Revenue Service over and
above the amount carried in the general budget, it should be remarked that
the said Service is entitled to an amount equivalent to ten per cent of
effective internal revenue receipts. Therefore, when receipts exceed the
original estimate (on which the budgetary allocation is based), 10% of
the difference automatically becomes available for expenditure by the
Internal Revenue Service. Furthermore, existing legislation allows addi-
tional amounts from revenues for special services rendered by the or-
ganization in question, as follows:
15% of Communal Receipts
5% of Stamps sales
5% of Vital statistics fees
The amounts derived from the above sources and placed at the disposi-
tion of the Internal Revenue Service in 1946-47 totalled Gdes. 909,390.70.
By law of September 15, 1947 published in September 30, 1947 the expenditure budget for the fiscal year 1947-48
was fixed at Gdes. 51,749,608.27.

Bani-:ing and Curr'ency
Haiti is served by two banks, the Banque Nationale de la R6publique
d'Haiti, which is owned by the Government, and the Royal Bank of Ca-
nada. The latter has its only Haitian office in Port-au-Prince. The Banque





REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT 17

National de la R6publique d'Haiti, besides its headquarters office at
Port-au-Prince, maintains branches and agencies at the other eleven open
ports of the Republic. In addition to the ordinary commercial operations, the
Banque Nationale is the Government bank of issue and the sole depository
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 1946-47 totalling Gdes. 13,650,407.30 as compared
with Gdes. 9,001,473.70 in the preceding fiscal year.

Bank deposits showed a moderate increase in 1946-47. Exclusive of
Government accounts, deposits averaged Gdes. 40,319,470.34 as compared
with Gdes. 40,140,691.08 in 1945-46 and Gdes. 39,275,993.92 in 1944-45.

The upward trend in the circulationof gourde notes during recent years
was quite pronounced in 1946-1947.




BANQUE 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 shown by the following table:
Gourdes

1945-46................................ 40,140,691.08
1946-47.......................... ...... 40,319,470.34
The rising trend in the circulation is due in a larger measure to higher
prices received for Haitian products, than to a general improvement in
business conditions.
Communal Accounts
During the six fiscal years which ended with 1946-47, 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. Special accounts covering receipts and expenditures
of each of the 104 Communes of the Republic have been maintained in the
Accounting Office'of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la
R6publique d'Haiti since the beginning of the fiscal year 1941-42. Table
No. 52 (See Appendix) shows the receipts and expenditures of each of the
Communes for the fiscal year 1946-47. There is presented below a general
statement of receipts and expenditures and surplus for the six years that
the Communal accounts have been subject to the general budgetary and
accounting regulations:

Foreign Trade Values
Never before, since the present method of compiling commercial statis-
tics- was instituted, has the value of exports been so important as the
amount registered for the fiscal year 1946-47 which totalled Gdes.
157,492,052. The highest level during the prior year was reached in
1918-19 when exports amounted to Gdes. 123,811,096.
Imports were valued at Gdes. 136,152,008, or only slightly less than the
record amount of Gdes. 136.992,055 registered during the fiscal year
1919-20.
The results of the foreign trade of Haiti, in 1946-47, from the standpoint
of value, were most satisfactory, when compared with those of the preceding
thirty fiscal years. Imports and exports during this fiscal year were, in






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


fact, valued at Gdes. 293,644,060, whereas the highest value appearing in-
the foreign trade table, from 1916-17 to 1945-46, was Gdes. 245,096,366
for the fiscal year 1919-20.
It is also interesting to note that the value of foreign trade, in 1946-47,
exceeded that for the fiscal year 1945-46 by Gdes. 99,919,512.

The foreign trade for the ten-year period ended September 30, 1947
indicates an export balance of Gdes. 56,117,051. It therefore appears con-
clusive that from 1937-38 to 1946-47, as indicated by the above table,
Haiti has derived an important profit from its exportations.

Percentage of Imports by Countries of Origin

The above figures indicate in some degree the effects of competition
between the principal suppliers of Haiti. It is pertinent to note in this
respect, that the .import trade is subject to no special regulation, such as
quotas and import licence and that, in consequence, the fluctuations shown
in the above table are not the result of restrictive or discriminatory mea-
sures. It is, moreover of interest to note that all of the countries designated
above, are entitled to the minimum tariff rates.

Imports from the United States of America
The United States of America was again, in 1946-47, the principal sup-
plier of the Haitian market, as indicated by the above table showing the
percentage of imports by countries of origin. The statistics covering

It appears from the above comparison that Haitian imports from the
United States of America, rose in 1946-47, as regards the fiscal years
1944-45 and 1945-46 by 100% and 75% respectively.
It is pertinent to note particularly the increase in the importations of
automobiles and trucks, cotton goods and silk and the decrease in the
importations of. machinery and apparatus, during the fiscal year under
review, as comparison with those of the fiscal year 1945-46.

The above figures indicate that there was no striking change in the im-
portations for the year 1946-47 as compared with those of the two pre-
ceding fiscal years. It should be noted however that a general increase
was registered in the various groups with the exception of jute bags. Im-
portations of machinery and apparatus, as well as those of paper and paper
products, although inferior to those of the fiscal year 1945-46 were superior
to those of 1944-45.

Prices of Principal Commodities
Imports in 1946-47 amounted to 110,699 tons against 82,114 in 1945-46,
but the increase in the value of imports during 1946-47 was not due solely
to an increase in the volume of merchandise imported. The rise in the
SC.I.F. prices of imported articles contributed in large measure to the
increase, as shown by the statistical data shown below:

As a whole, prices of the principal articles imported into Haiti were
appreciably higher, in 1946-47, than during the four previous years. For
example, laundry soap and cotton goods which are articles of first necessity,
show increases of 55% and 41.12% respectively, over 1945-46 prices.

It appears from this table that the greater part of exports were placed
on the market of the United States of America during the fiscal years
1945-46 and 1946-47. It should be noted however, that since the fiscal
year 1944-45, the percentage of products shipped to the United States of
America is inferior to that shipped during the war and tends to decline.
This is accounted for by the resumption of the commercial relations
between Haiti and the European markets, which were inacessible during
the war.
Exports to the United States
In view of the still high percentage of products of this country shipped
.to the United States of America during 1946-47, it is interesting to make
a comparison between the shipments for this fiscal year aid those of the
previous fiscal years. To this end, the statistics showing the value of ex-
ports to the United States of America from 1944-45 to 1946-47 are pre-

This table indicates that, in spite of the decrease in the percentage of
shipments to the United States of America, an increase was recorded in the
value of products shipped to that Country during 1946-47, as compared
with the two previous fiscal years. Such increase was chiefly due to ship-
ments of sisal and bananas.

From the table above, it will be seen that coffee, bananas and sisal,
in 1946-47 as in 1945-46, were the principal export products. For the
fiscal year under review, the value of these three commodities was approx-
imately 77% of total exports as compared with 63% during the preceding
fiscal year. It is also interesting to note, that such shipments were valued
at Gdes. 119,662,254 in 1946-47 as compared with only Gdes. 73,005,260
in 1945-46.
Volume and Value of Exports

shipments of cotton and other products of lesser importance. There was
recorded, however, an increase of approximately 15% in the quantity and
38% in the value of all products exported. These percentages indicate
that the average prices on the foreign markets for articles exported were
higher in 1946-47 than in 1945-46.

Principal Export Products
SAs indicated by the figures shown under the heading aVblume and
Value of Exportso, coffee, bananas and sisal, ranked first in the list of
export products during 1946-47. These principal commodities, together
with other like cotton, sugar, essential oils, handicraft articles and goatsk-
ins, representing each, on a different scale, interesting percentages of the
general exports, deserve special attention.

Coffee Exports
Shipments of coffee in 1946-47 were valued at Gdes. 60,656,839 and
represented, in consequence, almost 39% of the total value of exports.
The table below shows a comparison between the quantities and the
values of coffee shipments from 1943-44 to 1946-47:
Kilos Gourdes
1943-44............................ 23,116,197 25,983,822

1946-47............................ 24,659,421 60,656,839
It will be seen from the above table that the increase in value was much
more important than the increase in volume of exports during 1946-47 as
compared with 1945-46. It is interesting to note that the volume of coffee
exports in 1944-45 was higher than in 1946-47.
It is to be noted, on the other hand, that important market diversifica-
tions took place in 1945-46 and 1946-47 in the coffee export trade. This
was to be expected with the reopening of the European markets, to which
Haitian coffee had no access during the war period.

It will be noted that shipments of coffee to the United States of America,
declined from 87.8% in 1944-45 to 40.8% in 1945-46 and to 29.3% in
1946-47. This was accounted for, in a certain measure, by the competition
of the European markets, where prices are in general more attractive than
those offered on the American market The figures compiled, in this
connection, by the National Coffee Bureau, are given below:

To conclude these remarks, there are shown hereafter certain important
facts concerning the International coffee trade which characterized the
period from June I, to September 30, 1947. (1)
(a) The dullness in the sale of the varieties known as XX and Triages*;
(b) As a consequence of the sharp drop in the quotations on the Coffee
Exchange of New York, an especially cautious attitude on the
American market, and the application of a policy limiting purchases
to a strict minimum, interest being principally in quality coffee;

(c) The unrestricted purchase of sterling by the Bank of Brazil;
(d) The increase of 10% in maritime freight from the Brazilian ports
of Angro des Reis, Paramague and Victoria;
(e) The establishment in London of a selling agency for Colombian
coffee;
(f) The negotiation of a purchase by England of 2 million sacks of
Brazilian coffee;
(g) An embargo until 1950 on Peruvian coffee exports;
(h) The renewal of the Interamerican Coffee Agreement for a new
period of one year, effective October I, 1948;
(i) The discontinuance on August 21, 1947 of the conversion of sterling
into dollars to limit the drainage of Great Britain's dollar reserves.

Banana Exports
Export statistics show that bananas occupy a place of ever increasing
importance in the foreign trade of the Country. During the last four fiscal
years, the quantity and value of banana exports have been as follows:

The increase recorded in 1946-47, as compared with the preceding year,
appears to have been the consequence of increased production in almost
all the regions of the country where bananas are grown. In fact, exports
increased at all ports except Cayes and Miragoane. It should be pointed
out that prior to April 1945, only one grantee, the Standard Fruit &
Steamship Company, had the monopoly to buy all bananas of the Gros
Michel variety, produced throughout the Republic of Haiti. In April 1945,
the monopoly held.by this Company was limited to a given zone. Later
on this zone was again reduced and to date seven Compagnies, grantees of
the monopoly to buy and export bananas conceded to the State by the
Law of July 17, 1947, are engaged in the exportation of this fruit.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


To conclude this short summary of the facts recorded during the fiscal
years 1945-46 and 1946-47, relative to the exportation of bananas, it is
pertinent to note that in addition to the tax of Gde. 0.10 instituted by the
law of May 21, 1945, there is assessed on every count bunch exported,
since the month of December 1946 (Law of December 13, 1946), an export
duty based on the sale price of one hundred pounds. This tax averaged,
during the fiscal year under review, Gde. 0.80 per count bunch. In addition
to the export taxes mentioned, each stem of bananas is subject to a special
charge of Gde. 0.05 to cover, in part, the cost of operation of the service
created by law of September 15, 1947 to control the banana industry. Also
each standard stem is subject to a special charge of Gde. 0.25 as a con-
tribution to the treatment of banana diseases.

Sisal Exports.
During 1946-47 exports of sisal exceeded both in quantity and in value
those of each of the three preceding fiscal year, as shown by the following
table: Kilos Gourdes
1943-44.............................. 8,796,589 7,725,820
1944-45............................. 9,167,222 8,381,183
1945-46................. ......... 16,821,334 14,740,732
/ 1946-47.............................. 21,156,636 28,356,768
The most striking fact to be noted in the above table is that the increase
in value recorded in 1946-47, as compared with 1945-46, was relatively
much greater than the increase in the volume exported. This disproportion
is accounted for by a marked rise in the price of sisal on the foreign
markets during the fiscal year under review.
The average price of sisal, over the past ten years, is shown below:
Gourde per kilo
1937-38............................................ 0,448
1938-39.......................................... 0,361
1939-40............................................ 0,428

1944-45.......................................... 0,914
1945-46............................... 0,876
1946-47........................................... 1,340
It is interesting to note that 4,242,171 kilos of the 21,156,636 kilos
shipped during 1946-47, were exported by the Socitt6 Haitiano-Americaine
de D6veloppement Agricole, whereas the exportations of this corporation
during 1945-46 amounted to only 2,591,273 kilos.

preceding years, are shown below:

In the absence of data relative to the production of this commodity and
to stocks held as of September 30, 1946, it is not possible to indicate pre-
cisely the causes of the decrease recorded in the exportations in 1946-47.
Such a sharp fall in the quantity exported appears even more abnormal
when it is considered that from 1940-41 to 1946-47, the price per kilo of
cotton sold abroad, has never been as high as in 1946-47:

It would seem, however, that the fall indicated above, may be attributed
both to purchases by the Soci6t6 Anonyme Filature, Tissage et Confection
d'Haiti, for the local manufacture of textiles and to purchases of this
commodity by exporters, who forwarded about 1,235,000 kilos in October
1947.
Raw Sugar Exports
The exportations of raw sugar in. 1946-47 exceeded, both in quantity
and in value those of the fiscal year 1945-46, and compare as follows with
those of the fiscal years 1943.44 and 1944-45:

194 6-47............................. 26,103,214 14,174,536

It is to be noted that, due to price variations, there is not a constant
relation between quantities exported and their corresponding values.
The average F.OB. price of sugar manufactured in this country and
sold abroad during recent years may be presented as follows:

The price of sugar, in 1946-47, it will be noted, was approximately 100%
above the 1943-44 figure. Accordingly, in May 1947, considering that
the export tax in force did not permit the State to participate sufficiently
in the profits realized by exporter of sugar, molasses and cane syrup, the
Government drafted a law which was voted by the Legislature on June 3,







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


1947 and published in the Moniteur of June 9. Under the terms of this
law products mentioned are subject to an ad valorem export tax the rate
of which varies with the average FOB price of each shipment.

Handicraft Exports
Exports of handicraft articles, for the fiscal year 1946-47, were disap-


pointing when compared with those
as shown by the following table:

The decrease in 1946-47 shipments does not mean, however, that han-
dicraft articles are doomed to disappear altogether from the table of ex-
ports nor that they will eventually even occupy their minor pre-war place.
Improvements in recent years in the manufacture of mahogany ware, sisal
shoes, slippers and handbags especially, have secured a market in the
United States for these articles that will be maintained, if the Haitian
manufacturers do not lose sight of the effort which is necessary to meet the
competition of other countries, and keep on improving their production
methods.
The fall in the exports of the year under review seems to have resulted
from competition. This was to be expected with the resumption of com-
mercial relations between the United States of America and the countries
manufacturing handicraft articles which had been practically excluded from
the American market on account of the war.

Essential Oil Exports
Exports of essential oils for the year under review, compared with those
of the two preceding fiscal years, show increases both in volume and in

This continuous growth in exports indicates the soundness of the local
essential oil industry which developed only during the recent war but
which, it appears, is now sufficiently strong to meet competition from other
countries producing these oils. It should be noted that the fall in the
average sale price in 1946-47, indicated in the above table, was largely
compensated by an increase in the volume shipped.

Tariff Modifications
During the fiscal year 1946-47 the following modifications were made to
the import tariff annexed to the Customs Law of July 26, 1926:
Paragraph No. 13267 of the tariff was modified by the law of March 5,
1947. Under the new law Churches established in Haiti, Charity Or-
ganizations recognized in Haiti and the Haitian Red Cross are exempted
from customs duties on all articles, new or used, sent to them to be gra-
tuitously donated to the poor, regardless of the country of origin of the.
articles.
By Law dated March 17, 1947, the duties provided for by paragraphs
1603 and 1604 of the tariff on copper ingots, bars, sheets and bearings
were reduced from Gde. 0.30 and Gde. 0.40 respectively to Gde. 0.15 the
gross kilo.
Also to be mentioned is the law of July 31, 1947 by which the import
duties on lard substitutes or imitations, paragraph 12012, were temporarily
reduced from Gde. 0.60 to Gde. 0.20 per Net Kilo.
Import duties on gasoline, naphtha, and benzine, taxable under paragraph
211 of the tariff, were increased from Gde. 0.65 to Gde. 0.73 per gallon of
3,7853 liters by the law of September 15, 1947.
This tariff, which is more than 20 years old, should be entirely revised.
Certain duties applied to articles of first necessity are obviously too high;
others do not offer sufficient protection to certain new industries or to
industries which might be developed in Haiti.
Such an undertaking, however, as the complete revision of the customs
tariff, requires thorough examination. As a matter of fact, import duties
represented in 1946-47, 59.09 per cent of the State revenue. It would,
therefore, be most advisable to modify the tariff only after careful study of
statistical data covering a long period, with a view to ascertaining the
effects of such changes on the receipts of the Public Treasury. The follow-
ing should, as much as possible, be taken into account: the coefficient of
elasticity of the demand for each article; the duties collected under each
paragraph during the period considered; the effects of the modifications of
duties on the cost price and the sale price of each article; the imperfect
competition, and others factors.
A task of this scope can be accomplished only after a careful study
extending over several years. Meanwhile, it is imperative that the public
be furnished with a codification of all different modifications made to the






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


tariff since 1926 and, in appendice, an alphabetical index indicating the
paragraph under which each article is taxable in accordance with the
various instructions, circulars and decisions issued from time to time, by
the different organizations in charge, since 1926, of the control of customs
operations.
The undersigned anticipates that the publication of this work, though
Useful in avoiding erroneous taxations and supplementary duty bills, will
'give rise to criticisms. However, bearing in mind that an examination
of the numerous assimilation made in the past, with a view of modifying
them either through administrative decisions or by legislative action, will
unduly delay the printing of this publication, we have thought it better to
provoke these criticisms, as we feel sure that they will help the new ad-
ministration eventually to effect the necessary changes.

Air Traffic
Although the number of airplanes which visited Haiti during 1946-47
was considerably less than in the prior year, the number of passengers
arriving and departing by air increased by approximately 100 per cent. The
transportation of merchandise by plane also increased to a considerable
extent.
Statistical data on air traffic are given below:

It appears from the above figures that imports and exports by air express
increased notably in 1946-47, as compared with the preceding fiscal year.
From the point of view of volume, increases recorded were 158% for im-
ports and 77% for exports.
Maritime Traffic
The net tonnage of vessels entering Haitian ports during the fiscal year
1946-47 increased substantially compared with the preceding fiscal year:

BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


It will also be noted that there was a corresponding increase in the
number of vessels entering Haitian ports from October 1946 to September
1947.
Building Activity

According to figures compiled by the Department of Public Works,
150 building permits were issued at Port-au-Prince and P6tion-Ville during
the Fiscal Year 1946-47.
The amounts invested in these, constructions, as shown by plans and
estimates communicated to Public Works, indicate that the building in-
dustryl instead of developing, declined somewhat during the fiscal year
ended September 30, 1947, as compared with the previous fiscal year:

Buildings Constructed

Petion--Ville ...................... 14 52,850 17 404,63,7
Considering the housing shortage which has prevailed in recent years,
both in Port-au-Prince and Petion-Ville, the decrease may be attributed, in
part, to the increase in labor costs which was sharply accentuated during
the Fiscal Year 1946-47.

Atlantic Refining
The drilling of a deep well on a property located in the Plaine du Cul de
Sac which was started on July 23, 1946 was duly pursued. The Company
discontinued work after reaching a depth of 8045 feet, no favorable indica-
tion of the presence of petroleum having been found.
The equipment was shipped to Saint-Marc and the drilling of another
well started on a lot located in that district. After reaching a depth of 4000
feet the Company decided to abandon this well, in view of the unfavorable
geological formations encountered.

American Sanitary Mission
During the fiscal year ending September 30, 1947, the American Sanitary
Mission, operating in conjunction with the Department of Health of the
Haitian Government, carried forward the cooperative program for the
improvement of health and sanitation conditions in Haiti inaugurated
October I, 1944.
The Institute of Inter-American Affairs in order to carry out the pro-
visions of the Basic Agreement as amended maintains in Haiti a group of
technicians and other specialists consisting of a Chief of Field Party, a
Medical Officer and Associate Chief of Field Party, a Business Manager,
a Public Health Nursing Officer and a Public Health Nurse to supervise the
various types of work carried on by the American Sanitary Mission. The






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


salaries and expenses of this group are paid exclusively by the United
States Government, no part of the joint funds being used for this purpose.
The principal accomplishments of the Mission during the fiscal year
under review were as follows:

Haitian General Hospital Port-au-Prince
Improvement work started in November, 1945 was practically brought
to completion and included:
1.-Installation of a water storage reservoir having a 40,000 gallon
capacity which will provide ample water for the present and future
needs of the hospital;
2.-Construction of a sewage disposal system connected to a city outfall
running into the sea;
3.-Construction of a modern laundry equipped with water softening,
hot water and steam production;
4.-Sanitary facilities comprising the installation of a dispensary toilet
and a new line to replace an old clogged sewer passing by ward No. 3.

Maternity Hospital Chancerelles
The market at Chancerelles built by the American Sanitary Mission in
1943 hadibeen used very little and inasmuch as hospital facilities were
inadequate the Mission was requested by the Haitian Government to con-
vert the market building into a maternity hospital. A project authorization
was signed on February I, 1947 to cover this conversion. Sanitary facilities
were installed including toilets, wash basins, outside privies and a pipe
connection to the main line. As of September 30, 1947, this project was
98% completed.

Health Centers La Saline and Portail Leogane
In 1943, at the request of the Haitian Government a health center was
constructed at La Saline (Cit6 Vincent), a densely populated section of
Port-au-Prince, to be used as a training center for public health nurses,
sanitary inspectors and public health officers.
In view of the rapid growth of the La Saline center to the point where
over-crowding resulted in inefficiency, it was decided to enlarge the present
health center at La Saline and also build a new health center at Portail
L6ogane in Port-au-Prince. This area is on the other side of the city in
the slum area. Construction began at Portail L6ogBne in May and was
completed in December, 1946. Work started on the enlargement of the
La Saline health center in July, 1946 and was completed in June, 1947.
The health center at La Saline is staffed and operated by the National
Health Department with technical guidance provided by the American
Sanitary Mission.
During Dr. Richard J. Plunkett's visit in Haiti, in February, 1947 it was
decided, after conferences with officials of the Haitian Government, that







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


the Portail Leogane health center would be staffed and operated by the
American Sanitary Mission. It was opened on April I, 1947 and was
operated all through this period.

Cap-Haitien
A survey of the rural area near Cap-Haitien revealed the need for a
health center and small hospital. A contribution was received from the
citizens of the area and the work of designing this structure was begun
immediately thereafter. This project was begun in May, 1947 and by
September 30, 1947 was 97% completed.

Laboratoy
On December 23, 1946, a North American serologist joined the American
Sanitary Mission staff. It was originally intended to set up a separate
serological laboratory but certain supplies were impossible to obtain .Con-
sequently, he was assigned to the laboratory of the General Hospital in
Port-au-Prince. The improvement of serological techniques and the intro-
duction of multiple testing methods were undertaken. Advanced training
was being given to five persons: three were already on the laboratory
staff in the Port-au-Prince General Hospital, one was from Cap-Haitien,
and the other from Gonaives. These people now form a nucleus capable of
training others. In addition, instruction was given in improving the techni-
ques used in the hematology, bacteriology, and blood chemistry sections
of the laboratory. This course was completed in June, 1947.

REPORT OF FISCAL, DEPARTMENT


The present Agreement with Haiti terminates on June 30, 1948. The
program planned for the 1948 includes water supply and sewage disposal
for Cap-Haitien, water supplies for Verrettes and Hinche, continuation of
the yaws eradication program, operation of the health center at Portail
L6ogane, malaria control projects at Gros-Morne, Petit-Trou de Nippes and
Verrettes.

Cooperative Food Production Program
During the year ended September 30, 1947, the Cooperative Food
Production Program completed work on previously unfinished projects,
undertook several new ones, and undertook to prepare surveys and studies
for a long term program of agricultural development in Haiti.
Work on the Torcelles irrigation project was completed with the cons-
truction of a 760-meter masonry canal, a new flume over the Manegue
River and a masonry retaining wall above the dam, and repairs to the base
of the aqueduct and general strengthening of minor weaknesses in the
system.
To continue the work which had been started at La Gonave, a new
agreement was signed to keep a Food Mission agricultural agent at the
headquarters which had been erected there and to continue the nursery
work and extension work among the peasants.
To continue the livestock work at Papaye Farm, Hinche, an agreement
was signed whereunder the Food Mission allocated $5,000 to this project,
agreed to purchase supplies and equipment, and to furnish technical advice.
To further improve the livestock in Haiti, a Food Mission technician
arranged for the purchase in the United States and shipment to Haiti of 5
Guzerat Brahman bulls, 5 Guzerat Brahman heifers, 4 jacks, 3 jennets and
2 rams to be used for breeding purposes. These animals arrived in Haiti
in April, 1947.
A project was set up to import into Haiti machinery and equipment
necessary to bring into cultivation large areas which have been lying idle.
During the summer of 1947 the students of the National College of
Agriculture were given two months' training at the various projects of the
Food Mission. All expenses were paid and a small allowance given them.
The students all worked on two of the projects, either at La Gonfve, Bois
Dehors, Damien or Hinche.
-The training grants to Haitian agronomists to study in Puerto-Rico were
so successful the previous year that during this year five more grants were
given. The men's studies included soil conservation, rural extension work,
vegetable farming and tobacco culture, and their aptitude and application
have been highly commended by their instructors.
A limited program of rural extension work has been started by the Pro-
gram and it is planned to expand this when an experienced technician joins







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


the staff of the Mission. Most of this work to date has been done at Dub&-
dou where the Food Supply Program repaired and improved a small irriga-
tion system.
In March 1947, 40 acres of land at Damien were assigned to the Food
Mission for the purpose of setting up a training and demonstration farm.
This land has all been cleared and put into cultivation, experiments with
new varieties of grain sorghum and vegetables being of particular interest.
For example, two new varieties of grain sorghum tried appear capable of
producing three crops a year instead of the one crop given by local va-
rieties. Pastures have been cleared and fenced and temporary pastures
which have been laid out have helped improve the dairy herd at Damien
considerably. Students of the college are given training on the farm and an
opportunity to learn about the machinery and farm groups are invited to
see the advantages of modern methods of farming.
At the request of the Government, extensive surveys and studies for
drainage and irrigation in and general development of the Artibonite Valley
have been carried on and will be continued. In conjunction with these
studies a project was set up to operate a farm at Bois Dehors to determine
whether or not land below the 5-meter contour, previously considered too
saline for cultivation, could be reclaimed. Headquarters buildings have been
erected, 125 acres of land cleared, a pump set up at Tabourb6 Basin and an
irrigation canal cut to the farm. Experiments to date with various crops
indicate that with sufficient irrigation and drainage to wash the soil much
land formerly thought to be completely useless can be put into cultivation.

Conclusion
Fiscal receipts, in 1946-47, exceeded by far those recorded in any year
since the establishment in Haiti of statistical data on Government revenue.
This excellent fiscal situation enabled the Government to realize, largely
\with treasury funds, the financial liberation of Haiti.
The foreign trade values also exceeded considerably those of any pre-
vious year for which statistical data are available.
As a result of the repeal of most of the restrictions on foreign trade by
the United States of America, and of a marked increase in the tonnage of
vessels entering Haitian ports, import values rose, the population having
lost no time in laying in supplies of many staples of which it had been
deprived during the war years.
It is significant to note that in spite of the increase in import values, a
large favorable trade balance was recorded.
The conclusions which one might be inclined to draw from comparison
of Government receipts and foreign trade values of 1946-47 with those of
the previous fiscal year would be superficial. A report such as this one,
having necessarily a practical purpose, must present information permitting






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


the study of what economists call the which corresponds to
the notion of an evolution tied-otherwise than by more chance-to a set
of phenomena. In other words, this report should indicate the adjusted
curve of a sequence of economic phenomena facilitating the search for
constant antecedents, and accordingly, for causal relations, with a view to
the application of the necessary measures of redress. The study of these
phenomena for such a purpose must cover a long period of time. On the
other hand, the increase recorded in government receipts and foreign trade
values in 1946-47 were due to factors which during recent years, almost
everywhere in the world, caused a sharp inflationary trend, there by dis-
torting, through depreciation of currencies, or rising prices, the comparison
over a long period of statistical data expressed in values.
For these reasons, when making a study of the conjuncture over the
last thirty years, we deem it more advisable to consider the variations of
these data, not in currency, but in volume, that is to say, in physical
amounts, in order to bring out the general trend of actual income in Haiti
since 1916.
It appears from more complete tables published in the report that the
average volume of coffee, cotton and raw sugar exports were as follows:

1946-47.............................. 24,659,421 267,973 26,103,214

Exports of cacao also show no improvement, the average amount ex-
ported having declined from an average of 1,933,755 kilos for the period
from 1916-17 to 1925-26, to 1,902,404 kilos in 1946-1947.
Several other export products which thirty years ago represented an
important part of our economy, have considerably decreased. Among these
items, may be mentioned honey, which declined from an average of 639,813
kilos from 1916-17 to 1925-26 to 165,194 kilos in 1946-47; logwood which,
during the period from 1916-17 to 1925-26, showed an average of
41,343,196 kilos, dropped to only 5,056,250 kilos in 1946-47. The amounts
of corn exported during the same periods were 1,163,120 kilos and 293,800
kilos respectively. Exports of lignum vitae. were 3,373,770 kilos and
1,282,954 kilos during the above mentioned periods.
On the other hand, exports of various other commodities increased con-
siderably. Bananas, for example, of which there were practically no exports
thirty years ago, has become one of the main sources of our purchasing
power, the amount shipped having been 7,301,565 stems in 1946-47. Sisal
also, which was almost nonexistent in 1916, is becoming more and more
important in the economy of the country. In 1946-47, there were exported






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


21,156,636 kilos of sisal. Exports of castor beans rose from 640,917 kilos,
for the period from 1916-17 to 1925-26, to 3,216,451 kilos in 1946-47 and
goatskins, from 141,206 kilos to 266,296 kilos, while molasses increased
from 6,375,098 kilos during the period 1926-27 to 1935-36, to 13,225,808
kilos in 1946-47.
Handicraft articles made from sisal and mahogany, as well as essential
oils, are now exported in increasing amounts.
In view of the lack of adequate statistical data, it is not possible to give a
definite answer to the questions concerning income and yield problems
which have a bearing on the whole economic life. Some commodities, such
as coffee, which constitute the, frame-work of our economic system, de-
creased noticeably. It is true, with reference to coffee, that since the po-
pulation has increased, a higher amount of this commodity is consumed
locally, but it is obvious that the foreign exchange derived from sales
abroad of our key product, has decreased. Cotton exports also declined
very appreciably. It is to be noted, in fact, that even when shipments made
in October 1947 are added to those recorded from October I, 1946 to
September 30, 1947, the amount exported do not total 1,500,000 kilos,
while for the 29 previous years, the average annual shipments were appro-
ximately 3,885,000 kilos. Other commodities, which in 1916 were not
produced in commercial quantities or exported in rather limited quantities,
appear now in the table of exports for relatively important amounts; but
aside from bananas, a few (castor beans, goatskins, etc.) represent only a
small contribution to our economy, and others, such as sisal and molasses,
are a source of income for big companies as well as for the population.
Taking into account all these factors, and while it is not possible in this
connection to make unqualified statements, it is doubtful that the actual
income of the peasants has improved. Otherwise imports of articles of first
necessity would have gone up, it being understood that from 1916 to the
end of the fiscal year under consideration, there has not been established in
Haiti any industry which might satisfy the needs of the population, with
the exception of cooking oil, and recently, soap on a very small scale.
The following statistics, taken from more complete tables published
elsewhere in this report, appear to prove that the income of the rural popu-
lation has not actually increased:
Cotton Fabrics Soap Fish Flour
Kilos Kilos Kilos Kilos
1916-17 to 1925-26........... 3,196,716 3,218,000 3,232,765 20,257,680
1926-27 to 1935-36........... 2,809,010 3,423,817 4,447,649 20,554,890
1936-37 to 1940-41........... 2,833,803 3,286,193 2,423,651 8,064,074
1941-42 to 1945-46........... 2,314,316 2,814,715 463,330 13,782,105
1946-47........... 2,857,537 2,419,0,23 1,813,889 14,820,539
It is true, on the other hand, that some articles, such as gasoline, cement,
etc, were imported in much greater quantities; it is also true that in certain
instances, the decrease in imports may be due less to a decrease in the






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


purchasing power than to a displacement of the demand toward articles
'of local production or toward other imported articles. But taking into
account the nature of these articles, it will be noted that they are not, as
a rule, articles of first necessity, and it would seem in order to conclude that
the increase in the importation of luxury articles or goods assimilable to
such, on the one hand, and the reduction in imports of articles of first ne-
cessity on the other hand, imply that during the last thirty years, there
was a concentration of capital in the hands of a part of the population.
Restrictions on exports from the United States which existed during
a great part of the fiscal year 1946-1947 do not alter the above remarks. It
is true that these restrictions affected the foreign trade of Haiti over a
period of approximately five or six years, but their effects can be regarded
as negligible considering the lengthy period embraced in this study.
While complete statistics are lacking, it is very doubtful- to repeat -
that the national revenue has increased. The population, on the other hand,
has certainly considerably increased during the past thirty years and con-
tinues to increase progressively.
It would therefore be fallacious to consider as prosperity the fact that
the value of foreign trade has increased and that the circulation of gourdes
has risen from an average of Gdes. 8,247,616 during the period 1919-20 -
1923-24, to Gdes. 32,019,578 in 1946-1947.
The truth is that the productivity of our soil is on the decrease and that
to improve this situation, the output of the Haitian peasants, laborers and
technicians should be made more efficient by appropriate occupational
education and the provision of proper tools. Moreover the consumption of
energy is dominant in modern economy; but aside from hydraulic power
which exists only potentially, Haiti is very poor in sources of energy.
Another crucial question is that of erosion which causes much damage
which is irreparable. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the land
is divided into many small parcels and is thus ill-adapted to intensive
exploitation. A great number of the peasants occupy lots of lands which
are too small to be profitable. It is also very important to undertake
without delay the drainage of the swamps, the irrigation of the plains, the
construction of roads and trails leading to producing centers, the methodical
development of our basic crops: coffee, bananas, cotton, cacao, sisal, rice
and food staples.
The Government has resolutely undertaken the more urgent projects;
but these require much money, both for construction and maintenance. The
resources of the Public Treasury would cover only a portion of these
charges, it being understood as previously pointed out that the purchasing
Power of the people is very low. The only solution is to make every effort
Possible to increase this buying power; the individual income having thus
been raised, the necessary works could then be undertaken by means of a






42 BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

fair and moderate system of taxation. Some may say that we are in a vicious
circle since, to increase the purchasing power, we would need a capital that
we do not possess. But this is erroneous, as it appears from statistical data
that savings have slowly but surely increased. The problem, therefore, is
to encourage private interests to invest, in agricultural works or in pro-
cessing agricultural products, the amounts presently hoarded or invested in
buildings or usurious loans.
Since the fiscal year 1941-1942 Haiti has enjoyed a favorable trade
balance, totalling approximately Gdes. 80,500,000. To this figure must be
added the important invisible exports derived chiefly from the capital
investments of SHADA. (Soci6t6 Haitiano-Am6ricaine de D6veloppement
Agricole). The balance of payments, in spite of remittances abroad oc-
casioned by the reimbursement of the external debt,. is unquestionably
favorable to Haiti and, although limited, Haitian savings exist. These
savings, in our opinion, must be the starting point of the national renov-
ation. Confidence must be strengthened, and the necessary guarantees
afforded to those willing to invest their capital, or their savings. It is also
important to create opportunities for productive investments, by systemat-
ically discouraging even by way of taxation, un productive enterprises.
The Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti has, in this eminently
national undertaking, an important task to fulfill. This organization should
set the example by guiding and backing up investors on the one hand; and
by granting, on the other hand, against appropriate guarantees, the com-
mercial, industrial and agricultural credits indispensable to sustain the
efforts and stimulate those willing to invest.
However, we must not lose sight of the fact that Haiti is a country with
limited resources and that the execution of the plan above outlined will
imply the rational, methodical and economical utilisation of all means of
production. The strict application of sound rules of private and public
administration must be the basis of any program intended to give a vi-
gorous impulse toward maximum production.
The effort is not above the possibilities of the Haitian people who are
so patient and.courageous. The Government is firmly determined to get
the country out of the rut into which it has fallen. Its attempts will be
successful and the atmosphere of confidence which it will no doubt succeed
in creating essential factor of our economic evolution will lead to the
happy results which the Nation as a whole expects from the clearsighted
patriotism of its government.

theless by agreement with the Board of Directors of the National Bank of
the Republic of Haiti, the members of which, five in number, are appointed
for a period of five years beginning October 1, 1947 by the President of the
Republic, create such other departments besides those already in existence

proceed publicly, on the 15th of June and the 15tlh of December, each
year, to draw by lot one-twentieth of the total number of bonds issued
with the view to redeeming them at par. Drawings by lot will then be

NITEUR.

However, the National Bank of the Republic of Haiti is authorized to
make use of funds destined for this amortization in order to purchase on
the open market bonds and certificates at a price which does not exceed
par. The bonds and certificates thus purchased for the account of the Go-
vernment may be paid into the sinking fund. If the nominal total of these
bonds and certificates does not reach the amortization figure expected, the
procedure ofdrawing by lot as indicated above shall be followed for the
balance to be amortized.

Article 14.-The -bonds, bond certificates and interest coupons of the
loan as well as the interest paid on the bond certificates are exempted
from any present and future taxes whatsoever, particularly the income

the bonds purchased.

Article 17.-From the date of the publication of the present law in LE
MONITEUR and in conformy with the contracts of the 1922-23 Loan,
the Secretary of State for Finance shall form all holders of Series A
and C bonds outstanding by publication in two New York newspapers






BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


of wide circulation, once a week for eight consecutive weeks that the Hai-
tian Government has decided to redeem in cash on October 1, 1947, all
Series A and C bonds outstanding.
The bond holders of the 1922-23 Loan ma4, however, if they so desi-
re, exchange the said bonds against the bonds or the bond certificates of
the present loan. As compensation and as an exception, an additional
payment of 2 o of the nominal value of the bonds presented for exchange
shall be granted them in bonds or bond certificates of the present loan.
After September 15, 1947, the exchange may no longer take place. The
amount of the coupons up to October 1, 1947, will be paid to them in cash.
Article 18.-With a view to rendering immediately available the funds
necessary for the redemption of outstanding Series A and C bonds and in
order to satisfy the provisions of Article 7 of the Executive Agreement
between the United States of America and Haiti signed on September 13,

agent of the 1922-23 loan both the cash values and the proceeds of the
bonds at the present time figuring in the non-fiscal accounts, and this, up
io the amount of the sums sufficient for the realization of the operation.
The Government in agreement with the Board of Directors of the Na-
tional Bank of the Republic of Haiti may also utilize for the same purpo-
se such portion as may be necessary of securities and cash values belong-
ing to the State as well as the funds which, in carrying out the law of

by virtue of the law of May 21, 1935, figure in the legal reserve serving
to guarantee the circulation of the notes issued by that institution. The
proceeds of this operation will be paid for purpose of redemption to the
Fiscal Agent of the 1922-23 Loan.
From the date of the issuance of the bonds of the internal loan, the
National Bank of the Republic of Haiti will register in favor of the va-
rious accounts mentioned above bonds of the Internal Loan tp to the
amount of their respective contributions. The Government undertakes to
reestablish at the earliest possible date the liquidity of these accounts
with the help of the proceeds of the loan or of any other monies available
