FISCAL DEPARTMENT

For the Fiscal Year

OCTOBER 1948 SEPTEMBER 1949

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, June 1, 1950

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

Gentlemen:

There is submitted herewith the Annual Report of the Banque Na-
tionale de la R6publique d'Haiti, Fiscal Department, for the Fiscal Year-
extending from October 1, 1948 to September 30, 1949.

This Report is issued in pursuance of a practice which was inaugurated
for the Fiscal Year 1916-17, thirty-three years ago, on the occasion of
the general reorganization of Haitian Finances. The Banque Nationale
de la R6publlique d'Haiti took care not to detract from such a practice
when it assumed, nine years ago, the functions which, in the past, had
been vested upon the Office of the Financial Adviser-General Receiver,
then to the Office of the Fiscal Representative. This is, therefore, the
eighth consecutive year that a r6sum6, in statistical 'form, of commercial
and financial results, supplemented with analytical comments, is issued
for your information and that of the Government and the public in
general, by the Banque NatTonale de la R6publique d'Haiti.

From October 1, 1941, to date, the Fiscal Department's Annual Report
underwent only minor modifications as to the traditional shape of this
document, excepting inclusion, last year, of a balance of payments of the
Republic of Haiti for the years 1947 and 1948, which in the present
report has been taken over again and enlarged upon for the years 1947,

1948 and 1949. Nevertheless, year after year, it appears more and more
necessary to widen the scope of this publication or even to alter its
orientation. It is hoped that it will soon be possible to confer to its eco-
nomic section a more systematic and consistent character, by setting
its data on more diversified and sifted investigations. As a matter of
fact, in the course of the last three decades, not only the perspective
offered by economic and financial occurrences has evolved the world
over, but also, in Haiti, the balance and dosage of the various factors
having to do with national wealth and prosperity are no longer identical.

Foreign Commerce

Foreign trade values totalled Gdes.* 312,233,365 in 1948-49 against
Gdes. 315,467,351 in 1947-48, or a decrease of Gdes. 3,233,986, repre-
senting 1.02%.
Imports received during the fiscal year under review were valued at
Gdes. 157,134,111 and exports, at Gdes. 155,099,254, as compared with
Gdes. 161,042,717 and Gdes. 154,424,634, respectively, in 1947-48, or a
decrease of 2.43% for imports and an increase of 0.44% on the export
side.
These slight fluctuations nearly counteracted themselves, so that the
fiscal year closed with a trade balance of the same nature as that of the
previous year, though somewhat smaller. Imports in 1948-49 exceeded
exports by Gdes. 2,034,857 whereas, in 1947-48, the excess of imports
over exports had reached Gdes. 6,618,083.
Due to war-time economic dislocations and to unavoidable restrictions
resulting therefrom even during the so-called industrial reconversion, the
months corresponding in most countries to the Haitian fiscal year 1948-49
represented an adjustment period during which supply and demand
eventually found a relative equilibrium, at a price level higher, by far,
however, than the pre-war level, as a result of still heavy inflationary
factors. Deflation, which some ones thought unavoidable, has not yet come
to sight. As a favorable condition for our country, no decrease is being
registered in quotations for agricultural produces which we export, the
small declines which were noticed bearing rather on import articles.
Among the latter, cotton textiles showed such a substantial decline in
prices that they deserve a special mention.
Compared with foreign trade record figures of the preceding year, the
results of the present fiscal year showed a slight decline and seemed to in-
dicate that the tide has already reached its highest point. But the de-
crease is so gradual that many figures remained unchanged from those of
the previous year.

*One gourde equals twenty cents, U.S. cy., 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.






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Imports
The great activity which prevailed in the construction field both
public and private in connection with the Exposition of the Bicen-
tennial Anniversary of Port-au-Prince, brought about an increase in ce-
ment imports, the said increase having been higher in volume than in
vaiue since the price of that article registered a slight decline. The
volume imported in 1948-49 nearly doubled that of 1945-46 and trebled
the yearly average for the period 1916-1936.

Another significant increase took place in the case of imports of ma-
chinery and apparatus, which fell, for the most part, under the category
of capital investments, or production media. Imports of such items in
1948-49 trebled in value those recorded in 1946-47. The steady increase
over several consecutive years in these imports is well adapted to the great
need of equipment of the country. Imports of agricultural implements
followed the same trend.
As compared with the already high figures registered for the previous
fiscal year, purchases from abroad of motor and gasoline vehicles showed
a gain, which is a sign of progress in the transport industry. It should be
noted, however, that only 236 trucks were imported in 1948-49 whereas
354 of these vehicles were received in 1947-48.

Imports of cotton textiles, which constitute the usual clothing of the
major part of the Haitian people, increased in volume during the year
but decreased in value, as a consequence of the lower prices reported
above. According to information furnished by the spinning mill recently
established at Port-au-Prince, from October 1, 1948, to September 30,
1949, 1,840,956 yards of textiles, weighing 666,959 pounds were manu-
factured for local consumption by the said factory.

It is noteworthy that foodstuffs represented, in 1948-49, 21% of our
total imports against 19% in 1947-48 and 15% in 1946-47. Salted and
smoked fish imports increased in volume and decreased in value. The
unit price of the latter commodity somewhat decreased as compared with
the previous year, but still remained well' above even the price which
prevailed during the war. Efforts were made during the fiscal year with
a view to developing fisheries and pickle factories in Haiti, which would
diminish the country's dependence on foreign suppliers for that type of
food.

Rice, which practically had been eliminated from the table of imported
staples in 1945-46 and 1946-47, reappeared on the list the year after, due
to a scarcity of foodstuffs brought about by bad weather. It showed again
on the list for the current fiscal year, with a strong upward trend.

Countries of Origin of Imports

Haiti is a tributary of the United States to the extent of slightly more
than seventy-five per cent of its imports, or exactly 76.32%. Other prin-
cipal countries of origin are: Curagao, for 4.30%; Canada, for 4.21%; the
United Kingdom, for 3.69%, and Belgium, for 1.81C%.
A special paragraph will be devoted to the nature of the commodities
which Haiti purchases from the United States. Goods ordered from Ca-
nada, though in much lesser quantities, are hardly less diversified. They
include wheat flour (for more than Gdes. 2,000,000), paper, potatoes, hats,
hides and skins, fertilizers, alcoholic beverages, grains, fruits and vegeta-
bles, wrought iron manufactures, etc. The same diversity characterizes
Haitian imports from the United Kingdom.
From Belgium, Haiti receives cement, glassware, matches, building
iron, pipes and paper. Curagao and Venezuela principally supply us al-
most with our total requirements in petroleum products. We also received
from the latter country a sugar mill machinery of a total cost of Gdes.
5,341,000.
As a matter of curiosity, it may be stated that German products reap-
peared on the Haitian market since 1947-48 and Japanese merchandise
showed up again during the course of the fiscal year under review. Our
imports from France for the said fiscal year represented less than 1%
of the total and those originated in the Dominican Republic, one hundreth
of 17o.

Imports From the United States of America
The following table shows Haitian imports from the United States
of America covering the last three fiscal years, which constituted, in
1946-47, 87.82%, in 1947-48, 81.65% and in '1948-49, 76.63% of total


imports registered for each of the said fiscal periods.

The drop of Haitian imports from the United States is not as significant
as it would appear at first. It only stresses the price adjustments, which
affected during the fiscal year under study certain articles received from
the United States. If a table similar to the preceding one had been pre-
pared in terms of volume rather than in terms of value, the total imports
would probably appear higher for 1947-48. Our imports from the United
States may have decreased in value; but the figures for salted and smoked
fish, wheat flour, and principally cotton and cotton manufactures indicate
that the total volume has probably increased.

CIF Prices of Principal Import Articles
The following table shows, for the fiscal years 1944-45 to 1948-49, the
CIF price of the principal import articles converted to the unit on which
the customs tariff is based.
As a rule, prices prevailing in 1948-49 are lower than those for 1947-48,
with the exception of meats, gasoline, perfumes, and cigarettes.

Ports of Entry for Imports
Table No. 6 shows the value of imports by ports of entry for the fiscal
years 1916-17 to 1948-49.
Through this long period, Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien steadily
held the first ranks. For the period extending from 1917-18 to 1935-36,
the port of Cayes came in the third place. From 1936-37 to 1946-47,
Saint-Marc was third in importance. Since the fiscal year 1947-48, the
port of Cayes again occupied the third place.
The following table shows the various Haitian ports by order of im-
portance, as expressed in import value percentages for the last three
fiscal years.

The maritime transport crisis brought about by the war had resulted
in an excessive concentration of the import trade at Port-au-Prince.
Several firms at the outports had even decided to transfer their business
houses to the capital. In 1942-43, Port-au-Prince received no less than
93.74% of total imports. It is, therefore, satisfactory to note that decen-
tralization of merchandise entries is on a growing trend, especially in
Cap-Haitien. Cayes, FortLiberte and even Jacmel.

Exports
In view of the insignificant difference (an increase of 0.44%7) existing,
in terms of value, between Haitian exports for 1948-49 and those of the
previous fiscal year, it is particularly interesting to compare the distribu-
tion of practically equal values between the principal export staples for
two consecutive fiscal years.

REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Coffee and sisal increased their percentages while sugar, cacao and
principally bananas, decreased.
The same comparison, in terms of exported volumes, appears in the
following table for the fiscal years 1947-48 and 1948-49. Increases or
decreases expressed in percentages are indicated for each item.

The figures covering the volume of exports, much better than the data
referring to values, indicate the part due to the work of Haitian growers, as
opposed to the influence exerted by quotations. A typical example, in this
connection, is shown by comparison of coffee exports for the fiscal years
1945-46 and 1946-47. There is a great gap between the values, on the
one side, of Gdes. 38,149,000, and on the other, of Gdes. 60,657,000. The
difference between the weights, however, is immaterial: 24,283,000 kilos
for 1945-46 and 24,659,000 kilos for 1946-47. The entire difference pro-
ceeds from higher prices. Between June and July, 1946, as a matter of
fact, the average price per pound of coffee in New York jumped from
$0.134 to $0.206, and still points toward new increases.
Another point not to be lost of sight in this section of the Annual Re-
port, lies in the fact that the data offered here are export figures and not
production figures. In the present stage of Haitian statistics, production
figures are not available, neither information on local consumption. Fur-
thermore, it should be remembered that the division of time by fiscal
years is purely conventional and artificial. Even volume figures undergo
the pressure of market prices: stockage, in expectation of better prices,
causes one fiscal year's crop to be partly imputed to the following year's
exports.
Destination of Exports
The following table shows the values of Haitian exports, by percen-

While total value of exports remained almost unchanged from one
year to another, very little difference was noticed in the distribution of
the total value between the principal destination countries, exclusive of
the progress registered by Italy and Cuba, as a result of their purchases
of coffee, and the drop noted for the British Commonwealth and Norway.

Exports to the United States
The following table shows the value of Haitian exports to the United
States, by principal categories, during the last three fiscal years. It will
be noted that the totally value of these exports remained almost stationary
(a little more than Gdes. 90,000,000), though the respective values of cer-
tain basic staples as coffee, sisal and bananas, greatly fluctuated.

Ports of Shipment for Exports
Table No. 7 shows the value of exports by ports of shipment for the
fiscal years 1916-17 to 1948-49.
Through that long period, Portiau-Prince steadily held the first place.
As to the average for the period 1916-17 to 1935-36, Cap-Haitien occu-
pied the second rank and was closely followed by Jacmel. Referring to
the average for 1935-36 to 1945-46, Fort-Libert6 stood at the second
place and Cap-Haitien at the third. Cap-Haitien ranked second in 1945-46
and 1946-47. Since 1947-48, Fort-Libert6 is the second Haitian port for
exports, as a result of the growing sisal shipments.

The fact which dominated the coffee world trade during the fiscal
year under consideration, was the exhaustion of stocks in producing coun-
tries. As a consequence, prices stood at the high level which was suddenly
reached when a great portion of the Brazilian crop had been reported to
be ruined by reason of drought. Prices kept on growing up for the three
months of the calendar year 1949 extending beyond the period covered
by the present report.

The difference in the percentages exported to the United States is
practically immaterial. As a whole, European countries reduced their
purchases. A new destination, Cuba, absorbed nearly the tenth part of our
exported coffee.
It is pertinent to reproduce at this place certain data which have been
compiled by the Pan-American Coffee Bureau and which shows the rank
occupied by Haiti in the coffee world trade.
It is estimated that the exportable Haitian crop for 1948-49 represented
1,9% of the world production. Coffee proceeding from Haiti constituted,
in volume, 0.8% in the calendar year 1949 and 0.5% in 1948, and in
value, 0.7% in 1949 and 0.4% in 1948, of the total imported by the United
States of America. As to European imports of coffee originating in Latin
America, Haitian coffee corresponded, in quantity, to 5.0% in 1949 and
5.7% in 1948.
Sisal
Sisal shipments for the fiscal year under review registered a gain of
14% in volume and 15% in value, when compared with the preceding
fiscal year. A recapitulation of the figures corresponding to the last five
years shows the steady growth of volumes and values exported:

Thus, for the two fiscal years under consideration, the United States
.took in value, 97,1.% and 96.8%, respectively, of Haitian exports of sisal.
For the calendar year 1949, American purchases destined in good part
to increase their strategic reserves, represented 30% of world sisal trade,
as compared with 20% for the pre-war period 1934-38.
According to data compiled by the United Nations Organization for
Food and Agriculture, the world production increased from 243,000 metric
tons for the period 1934-38 to 265,000 in 1948, and 277,000, a tentative

figure, in 1949. The main sisal producing countries in the world are, by
order of importance, British East Africa (Kenya and Tanganyika), Haiti,
Brazil, Portuguese East and West Africa, Indonesia, Formosa and Vene-
zuela. In the course of the last ten years, Indonesia's production dropped
from 84,000 metric tons to 6.

The sisal market is dominated by British East Africa, which, in spite
of a severe drought in 1949, yielded sixty-per cent of the world produc-
tion. The present prospects for this staple are satisfactory in view, in
the first place, of the American policy tending to continue constituting stra-
tegic reserves, and, secondly, of the continuance of the factors impeding
Indonesia from reestablishing its plantations. A fairly clear idea of the
price trends may be obtained from the following table, which shows, in

12 BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

Exports of bananas for the fiscal year 1948-49 totalled 2,156,092 stems
valued at Gdes. 8,457,002, as compared with 3,547,067 stems valued at
Gdes. 14,201,497 in 1947-48, or a decrease of 1,390,975 kilos and of
Gdes. 5,744,495. The bulk of Haitian banana exports was sold to the
United States.

Customs duties on banana exports yielded Gdes. 1,336,632 for the fis-
cal year 1948-49 or 9.05% of total export receipts. In 1947-48, customs
duties derived from the same source amounted to Gdes. 2,337,769, re-
presenting 15.82% of export collections for the said fiscal year.

Bananas reached their high in Haiti in 1946-47. For that period, this
fruit represented, in value, 19.46% of Haitian exports and the duties
derived therefrom constituted 24.37% of total export duties.

The decline registered by the banana trade and which is reflected on
the purchasing power of rural inhabitants, as well as on money circulation
in certain regions of the country, has not originated in any contraction
of the consumer's demand on foreign markets, neither in any destruction
of the crop by bad weather. Under these circumstances, no other alterna-
tive is left than to link the said decline to the excessive manipulations
to which the banana trade has been subject for some time, without any
regard apparently to the interest of the producers, to his psychological
reactions, or to other factors bearing on the future of the banana industry
in Haiti. The present export charge on bananas should also be curtailed
and the taxation system, simplified.

As concerns banana cultivation, the territory of the Republic has been
divided into several zones and an export monopoly has been granted for
each of these zones to a distinct corporation. In as much as all shipments
from a given zone are effected, as a rule, from the corresponding open port,
it is interesting to show by ports of shipment, the banana exports for the
fiscal year under study as compared with those of the previous fiscal pe-
riod.

Prospects for sugar were consequently very encouraging at the close
of the fiscal year 1948-49.

Cotton
In relation to the total value of Haitian exports, shipments of cotton
appear as follows, in percentages, for the period 1916-17 to 1948-49:
Percentage of the total
Average 1916-17 to 1935-36 ....................................................... 11.09% in value
Average 1936-37 to 1945-46 .................................................. 8.86% "
1945-46 .......................................................... 7.65% "
1946-47 ............................................................... 0.49% "
1947-48 ............................................................... 6.03% "
1948-49 ............................................................... 4.31% "

Shipments of cotton abroad fell from 3,289,856 kilos, valued at Gdes.
9,304,487, in 1947-48, to 2,055,265 kilos, valued at Gdes. 6,679,493 in
1948-49, or a decrease of 1,234,591 kilos and of Gdes. 2,624,994.
No excessive significance should be attached to the violent fluctuations
registered by export figures through the last three fiscal years. As was
explained in the last Annual Report, the increase of 1,097% in value and
of 1,128% in volume recorded in 1947-48 as compared with 1946-47
simply proceeded from the fact that about 1,235,000 kilos of cotton had
been deposited in the customs warehouse in September to be embarked in
October. Thus, the decrease of 28% in value and 37% in volume registered
by the 1948-49 figures as compared with those of the previous fiscal year
resulted from the foregoing circumstances and to the bollweevil's action as
well.
Distribution of Haitian exported cotton among the various countries of
destination may be summarized as follows: The United Kingdom took
75%o of the total volume; the Netherlands, 5%; Colombia, 12% and
Belgium, 7%.
It may be pertinent to point out that during the fiscal year under study,
the local weaving industry consumed 784,991 pounds of cotton, or about
356,000 kilos.
The following table shows the progress of cotton world production in
thousands of 478 pound bales:

1947-48 ......................................................... 23,232
1948-49 ......................................................... 27,209

For the last two years, the cotton crop has been exceptionally high, es-
pecially in the United States. Out of the American production, ten million
bales were exported to supply United Kingdom's, Western Europe's and







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Japan's weaving plants. As a rule, prices were lower in 1948-49 than in
1947-48. There are quoted below the average prices per pound in dollar
cents, offered American growers for the period indicated:

The growing popularity of synthetic textiles, such as rayon, constitutes
the principal threat to the world demand for cotton. It should not be
forgotten, however, that cotton is a strategic staple, whose price always
rises as the international situation becomes strained.

Cacao
Haitian cacao exports were as follows in the course of the last five
fiscal years:
Kilos Gourdes
1944-45 ............................................... 1,264,194 1,077,955
1945-46 ............................................... 1,254,346 1,240,501
1946-47 ............................................... 1,902,404 3,867,361

1948-49 ................................... ...... 1,559,886 4,468,002
For the latter fiscal year, the United States purchased 91% in volume
and 99% in value, of our cacao exports.
Cacao world production fell from 735,200 metric tons for the period ex-
tending from 1934-35 to 1938-39, to 621,800 tons in 1947-48, then turned
up again to 761,500 tons in 1948-49. Contrasting with the situation which
prevailed from 1922 to 1939, the consumer's demand was well above the
supply, since a disease known as -swollen shoots devastated British West
African plantations. The following table shows, in dollar cents and by
pound, to what extent prices grew better on the New York market since
1946 for one sort of cacao taken as an example:
Dollar Cents

Average 1934-38 ........... ............................................ 6.1

1947 .................................................................. 35.0
1948 ................................................................. 39.9
1949 (September) ................................................ 20.0
Everything leads to believe that, for some time to come, quotations
will maintain their present high level, since no break of the balance bet-
ween the demand and the -supply is to be anticipated in the near future.
In fact, Brazil undertakes to increase its production; at Costa-Rica, the
United Fruit Company started new plantings; in the Dominican Republic,
no new plantations are reported, but several prickings took place with a
view to bringing production up to 5,000 tons, through a 20% expansion
in ten years. In Guatemala, the number of cacao-trees increased by 15%
since the war. And so on.






BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


But, all this will not bring about any great increase of raw cacao ex-
ports since nearly all the Latin-American countries rather aim to set up on
their territories their own chocolate industry. In 1949-50, Mexico plans
to process 5,000 metric tons out of its 6,000 tons production. Cuba expects
to ship abroad only 700 tons of its crop of 3,200. In Colombia, local con-
sumption raised from 11,000 to 115,000 tons in one year. Venezuela will
probably keep at home 15% of its production of cacao seeds, Ecuador,
between 800 and 1,000 tons; Costa Rica, between 400 and 500 tons;
Guatamela, around 200 tons, and Nicaragua, 250. In Jamaica, a new
plant for the manufacture of cacao powder and butter began to work in
1949.
The Dominican Republic's production reached 3,000 metric tons in
1948-49.
Maritime Traffic
Table No. 8 shows, for each port, expressed in values and percentages,
the volume of foreign trade, subdivided into imports and exports for the
fiscal year 1948-49.
So far as concerns imports, Port-au-Prince ranked first with Gdes.
122,173,010 (77.75%) and Cap-Haitien came at the second place with
Gdes 11,163,007 (7.11%).
For exports, Port-au-Prince again held the first place with Gdes.
55,631,114 (35.87%0) and Fort-Libert6 was second in importance with
Gdes. 29,243,920 (18.86%).
For total imports and exports, Port-au-Prince took the first pace with
Gdes. 177,804,124 (56.95%) and Fort-Liberte was the second port in
importance with Gdes. 33,968,820 (10.88%). Cap-Haitien occupied the
third place with a total of Gdes. 28,820,909 (9.23%).
It results from the foregoing data that more than 50%0 of Haiti's foreign
trade passed through the port of Port-au-Prince whereas a little more
than 10% flowed through Fort-Libert6 and slightly less than 10%, through
Cap-Haitien. At Port-au-Prince, export values were exceeded by import
values while at Fort-Libert6 and Cap-Haitien, the reverse was true.
Total tonnage of imported merchandise was T. 165,255.47 for the fiscal
year under study.
There were imported through Port-au-Prince T. 130,460.03 of merchan-
dise and T. 9,278.05 through Cap-Haitien.
Total tonnage of exported goods was as follows for the fiscal year under
review: T. 146,983.04, of which T. 53,574.16 through Portau-Prince; T.
19,168.77 through Fort-Libert6 and T. 13,989.68 through Cap-Haitien.
Total tonnage of commodities which left Haiti for the United States
was T. 105,196.82 during the fiscal year.
Tables 9, 10, 11 and 32 supply additional data on ports activities in
connection with the export and import trade (number, tonnage and

During the fiscal year, 185 sailing vessels, of a total tonnage of 3,166
net tons, called at Haitian ports, as compared with 182 and a net tonnage
of 2,091 tons for the preceding fiscal year. These are mostly vessels ope-
rating between Haiti and the neighboring islands, principally British West
Indies.
Tariff Modifications
A law dated January 21 1949 created a 3% customs surtax assessable
to the CIF value of imported merchandise plus customs duties applicable
thereto, including handling and stamp charges, but excluding the amount
of customs penalties.
By reason of deficient domestic production, a law of March 14, 1949,
exonerated from customs duties until August 31, 1949, rice decorticated
or not corn in grains, ears or powder, beans, peas and other dry legu-
minous grains, potatoes, sugar beets, turnips and other tubercles not
provided for.
By a law of June 7, 1949, the tax on all types of asbesto and cement
- shingles and sheets or similar combinations, for roofings or parti-
tions, was decreased from Gde. 0.10 to Gde. 0.02 by gross kilo.








18 BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI

The law of June 3, 1949, modifying those of September 15, 1947 and
July 17, 1947, created an export duty of Gde. 0.05 on each stem of
banana, to be supported by the grower. This tax was appropriated to
cover operating expenditures of the banana trade control administration.

In order to neutralize an excessively generalized practice of under-
declaring import values, a law of September 6, 1949, adjusted duty rates
applicable to natural and artificial silk manufactures, in general.

With a view to promoting tourism propaganda, a law of September 7,
1949, removed duties on commercial advertisements printed on paper
and cardboard, including calendars and fans used to the same ends, en-
gravings, chromos, lithographs, photographs, postal cards, etc., provided
the mentioned articles bear on a strictly and typically Haitian topic, also
when they are destined to tourist agencies for propaganda purposes.


Government Finances
Fiscal Revenues
For the third consecutive year, Haitian fiscal receipts broke their own
record. The Gdes. 83,098,855.91 collected for the fiscal year 1948-49
exceeded by 5% the amounts perceived in 1947-48, which, in turn, were
20% above 1946-47 collections. It is interesting to note that 1946-47
receipts represented at their time, the highest level ever reached by yearly
collections since adoption of the present methods of compiling financial
data. Table No. 42 indicates that total fiscal receipts doubled in five years.

The following table shows a comparison of the various sources of fiscal


revenues in 1948-49 and 1947-48, together with the
each sub-title in consideration of the total.

No substantial variation was noticed from one year to another in the
distribution of receipts between the various sources. Once again, internal
revenues showed, by comparison with the bulk of collections, a tendency
to an expanding proportionate increase, which seems to be in conformity
with the very nature of such revenues. The collections in question in-
creased more than fourfold in ten years, as is evidenced in table No. 27.








REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Customs Receipts
Customs collections of the Republic are of three categories: duties on
imported merchandise, duties on exported merchandise, and miscellaneous
receipts.
Import Duties

Receipts of this category increased by Gdes. 1,046,808.19 in 1948-49
over 1947-48 figures, though the total value of imported goods declined
by Gdes. 3,908,606 from one year to the other. In view of the fact that
for the major part of imported articles, there are provided for in the
customs tariff alternative specific and ad valorem taxation rates, whichever
is the more advantageous for the treasury to be assessed in each case,
any general statement as to the fiscal yield of imports taken as a whole, is
unsafe. On the other hand, a comparison, article by article, of import
receipts with corresponding quantities and values, would prove to be much
more tedious than informative. A few useful remarks may, nevertheless,
be made in connection with import revenues for the fiscal year 1948-49,
as compared with related figures of previous fiscal years.
It is striking, at first, that the ratio of the mentioned revenues to the
total import values increased from 26.42% in 1947-48 to only 27.75%
in 1948-49. As mentioned above, a law of January 21, 1949 created a 3%
special customs surtax. Undoubtedly, due to peculiar causes, the men-
tioned surtax failed in 1948-49 to reflect to a greater extent on the men-
tioned percentage.
The most obvious of these factors is the marked increase, during the
fiscal year, of imports legally admitted duty-free. Table No. 11 indicates
that not more than 87.95% of imported merchandise were subject to duties
in 1948-49 whereas the remaining 12.05%, representing Gdes. 18,925,710,








BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


were cleared out of the customs, by virtue of legislative provisions, without
any payment to the Treasury. For the last fiscal year, only 3.437o of
total imports entered Haiti in franchise.
The importance of that factor should not be overestimated. In 1945-46,
the value of duty free imports also had been fairly high, having reached
11.237o of the total. Moreover, for the fiscal year under study, a good
portion of the increase having certainly to do with the International Ex-
position preliminary work, resulted from articles temporarily received in
franchise, in conformity with article 3 of the law of September 11, 1949
and bound to be reexported. Other imported merchandise possibly cover
articles which, were it not for the Exposition, would never have been' in-
troduced into Haiti, so that the fiscal loss would rather be apparent. It is.
not useless, anyhow, to lay stress on this, as a simple warning.

Export Receipts
The following table shows the yield of the principal sources of export
receipts, by order of importance, for 1948-49 and 1947-48:

14,768,458 100.00 14,776,439 100.00
Together with table No. 20, it shows the fiscal load which burdens ex-
ported coffee: for the fiscal year under study, coffee represented in value
43.36% of our total exports, but paid 79.15% of total export duties. How
to be astonished of the regression noted for many years in the cultivation
of that staple? For 5.45% of exports total value, bananas paid 9.05%
of export duties, and sugar, for 5.04% of the first total, paid 7.29% of the
second. Cotton seems to be the least heavily taxed of our crops and this
is a privilege which it greatly needs. For 30.02% of the total value of
Haitian exports, sisal pays only 2.87% of total export taxes. But, one
should not lose sight of the fact the heavy income tax payments effected
each year by sugar and sisal plants.
Of all these staples, bananas were the only one whose taxation, which
is already fairly complicated, underwent a modification during the fiscal
year under review. According to the law of June 3, 1949, the third duty
of 5 centimes by stem provided for by the law of September 15, 1947, is
payable theretofore to a non-fiscal account and affected to finance the
operating expenditures of a control organization created during the fiscal
year. Furthermore, the first duty of 10 centimes by stem provided for by
the decree-law of May 11, 1945 is augmented by a special' tax, the amount
of which varies according to coffees FOB price per hundred pounds.

The two most significant changes noted under this heading are the
increase in receipts from auction sales and the decrease in handling char-
ges. The first resulted from a general auction sale, on April 27, 1949,
which yielded Gdes. 21,073.96, of all unclaimed merchandise which were
in the custom-house at Port-auiPrince, some of them since the previous
fiscal year. As to the decrease in handling charges, it reflected the contrac-
tion of imports registered at Port-au-Prince in 1948-49 as compared with
1947-48 collections. The respective figures were Gdes. 122,173,010 and
Odes. 135,424,024. The diminution in transit fees proceeded from the
fact, already brought in evidence in table No. 8, that foreign vessels called
oftener at the outports than during the previous fiscal year.

Internal Revenues
Internal revenues are shown in tables 49 to 52 which are annexed to
the present report.
It results from table No. 49 that internal revenues nearly doubled in
three years, having increased from Gdes. 11,933,060.90 in 1946-47 to
Gdes. 18,105,598.07 in 1947-48 and Gdes. 20,390,504.63 in 1948-49.
The following table shows, by order of importance, the sources of in-
ternal revenues which yielded more than Gdes. 300,000 in 1948-49 as
compared with the corresponding collections for the previous fiscal year.

Out of the increases noted above, Gdes. 1,009,409.28 came from the
following four sources which were not in existence last year:
Sources Receipts 148-49
Individual income tax ........................................ 402,627.27
Frontage tax ...................................................... 364,712.10
Sales taxes ....................................................... 159,085.51
Travel tickets .................................................... 82,984.40.
Total Gdes. ....................... 1,009,409.28

The sales tax was established by a law dated September 8, 1948. Col-
lection of this tax was suspended by the decree of November 25, 1948,
and the tax itself was abrogated by the law of January 21, 1950, and
the 3%o customs surtax mentioned above substituted in place thereof.
The frontage tax was created by the law of September 3, 1948. It
amounts to two gourdes per annum and by linear meter on the public
road for Port-au-Prince; to one gourde for the capital's suburbs, P6tion-
ville and Kenscoff; to fifty centimes for prefectorial cities and open ports;
and twenty-five centimes for other communes.
The civic contribution, which was established by the law of September
8, 1948, with a view to the erection of statues of heroes of Haiti's Inde-
pendence in the principal towns of the Republic, is a sort of surtax collect-
ible by means of special stamps or against receipts from nearly all classes
of taxpayers.
The travel ticket tax, instituted by the law of September 8, 1948 is
independent from the "passage tax" provided for by the law of January
23, 1925, and is perceived by air and maritime corporations for account of
the Haitian state; this tax is equivalent to ten per cent of the cost of all
travel tickets either by air or by sea from a Haitian seaport or airport to
a foreign destination.
Among other provisions which tended to increase 1948-49 revenues
either of the State or of Communes, mention may be made of the follow-
ing:
1) Law of 'September 6, 1948, extending the income tax so as to cover
all periodical earnings, with a basic abatement of Gdes. 3,000 per annum;
2) Law of September 6, 1948, establishing a so-called "asphalt tax"
on all motor vehicles;
3) Law of September 7, 1948, increasing rent tax rates;
4) Law of September 8, 1948, modifying the tariff rates of Hydraulic
Services;
5) Law of June 21, 1949, increasing to five gourdes the amount of the
special consular stamp-tax.
A single fiscal year is too short a period to permit to reach a conclusive
opinion on each of the fiscal measures mentioned above. Moreover, as-
sessment of these new taxes will only gradually acquire its full effective-
ness. As an example, there are many indications that a number of pro-







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


fessional men failed to pay the treasury the proper amount of income tax
incumbent on them. It should be admitted as well that fiscal measures
are much more effective when they are integrated to a combined general
scheme or proceed from a well defined policy than when they are taken
as emergency measures or as mere expedients.

There is no doubt, however, that commendable efforts have just been
made to increase public revenues to the least burdensome extent for the
taxpayers; that experience will permit to effect on the new fiscal legisla-
tion appropriate corrections and amendments and that the yield of the
new revenue sources so created will proportionately increase.

Miscellaneous Government Receipts

Miscellaneous government receipts amounted to Gdes. 2,970,962.67 in
1948-49 against Gdes. 1,983,545.99 in 1947-48, or an increase of Gdes.
987,416.68 representing 49.78%.

Out of the total amount, Gdes. 766,153.75 and Gdes. 809,302.66 repre-
sent profits drawn by the state from operations of the Sugar Sale and
Tobacco Agencies, respectively, two semi-commercial enterprises. Interest
yielded by investments in bonds of the Internal Loan amounted to Gdes.
274,130.30. On the other hand, transfers were effected during the fiscal
year of the countervalue of unissued or unsold Internal Loan bonds in a
face value of Gdes. 809,870.00 which were drawn by lots for amortization
purposes.

Other sources of miscellaneous receipts were as follows: the consular
stamp-tax, amortization payments on a loan extended in 1933 to a teach-
ing religious congregation, auction sales of used material belonging to the
state, or rent of the said material to private concerns, a portion of the
dividends of the Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti, and various
refunds due to adjustments of errors.


Government Expenditures

The following table shows, for the last four fiscal years, the steady
expansion of public expenditures, the scale of which tends to exceed more
and more that of fiscal receipts:

Fiscal expenditures for 1948-49 exceeded by 11% those of the previous
year, which themselves were 38% above those for 1946-47. These latter








BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


were, in turn, 50%o higher than the 1945-46 expenditures. Total expen-
ditures which, ten years ago, were under thirty million gourdes, more and
more tend to reach the one hundred million mark. But, the record set
for the fiscal year under study could only be registered at the cost of a
deficit of ten million gourdes.
Expenditures for six Departments or Services decreased by comparison
with the figures of the previous year, as is shown in the following table:

Expenditures of most departments or services remained unchanged or
presented minor variations, when compared with amounts recorded last
year. The Department of Finance alone is accountable in the amount of
nearly ten million gourdes for almost the total spread between 1948-49
and 1947-48 expenditures.


Expenditures by Departments and Services

Of all the public services, the Army of Haiti recorded the highest
expenditures in 1948-49, Gdes. 15,091,415.82 or 16% of total fiscal ex-
penditures. By comparison with the previous fiscal' year, the increase
amounted to 16%. In addition to its ordinary charges, in 1948-49, the
.Army of Haiti purchased airplanes, vessel motors and war material, pre-
pared landing fields and renewed the old instruments of the National
Palace Band.







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


The portion of the Department of Finance's expenditures chargeable
to the International Exposition, either directly for preparatory works
(third instalment), or indirectly (purchase of lands, hydraulic installations
in the Exposition's area), amounts to a total of Gdes. 11,815,028.33 for
the fiscal year under study. Considering only the nature of these outlays,
they do not represent any operating expenditures, though they were
mechanically classified as such in table No. 38. The said expenditures
would more properly be chargeable to the Public Works budget, as was
the case a year ago, and all leads to the belief that only emergency reasons
caused the extraordinary credits opened for the Exposition during the
fiscal year to have been imputed to the Department of Finance.

The increase in expenditures recorded by this department amounted
to 194% by comparison with the previous fiscal year. The principal items
of the ordinary budget which showed increases are those referring to sa-
laries of the personnel, expenditures of the Chamber of Accounts, of the
Fiscal Department-BNRH, and Internal Revenue Service. Refunds and
payments of claims increased from Gdes. 369,600.72 in 1947-48 to Gdes.
547,531.92 in 1948-49, a law of May 4, 1948 having ordered the refund
to a great sisal company of Gdes. 446,665.90 overpaid by it in 1947-48
as income tax.

Expenditures connected to the Public Debt decreased by. 40o from
the previous fiscal year. Further comments on this subject will follow
under a special heading.

The increase noted for the Department of National Education amount-
ed to 22%o. It was recorded in ordinary and supplementary credits, prin-
cipally those for Rural Education, Lay Primary Education and Congre-
gational Primary Education. Special expenditures were effected for school
quarters at Croix-des-Bouquets, Fonds-Baptiste (St. Marc), Fort-Libert6,
St-Jean-du-Sud, Chantal and Hinche. The Government continued its con-
tribution to UNESCO'S pillot project at Marbial. (Jacmel), maintained
scholarships abroad, and contributed to the printing cost of two books
by Haitian authors.

The major part of the credit relative to the International Exposition
for the fiscal year under study having been charged to the account of the
Department of Finance, the expenditures accounted for by the Public
Works Department decreased, in 1948-49, by 33% when compared
with the previous fiscal year. Nonetheless, they included outlays for the
Exposition in a total amount of Gdes. 1,510,000. The extraordinary bud-
get of the Public Works Department counted 135 credits taken in major
part for continuation or completion of previously begun projects. The

6,258,000.00

Expenditures of the Department of Public Health in -1948-49 amounted
to Gdes. 7,739,239.36, or 45% more than in 1947-48. During the fiscal
year, extensive equipment purchases were effected for the Medical School,
the Dental Art School and the hospitals of the Republic. An amount of
Gdes. 102,425.25 was expended for captation and conveyance of waters
from ,Millets Spring, as already mentioned in the preceding paragraph.
The Government contributed Gdes. 300,000 to the Health and Sanitation
Cooperative Program. A new hospital was founded at Belladere, and a
new maternity ward, at Chanoerelle. The acquisition of an automatic
sweeping machine for Gourdes 55,000 should also be mentioned.
Expenditures of the Department of the Interior decreased by 12%,
'having amounted to Gdes. 4,781,549.59, of which Gdes. 846,226.81 were
provided for by extraordinary credits. During the previous fiscal year,
this Department had effected substantial purchases of equipment for
national defense, which were not duplicated this year.
The Department of Foreign Affairs sustained also, in 1947-48, heavy
expenditures which were exceeded by 3% in 1948-49. Special outlays of
the present fiscal year principally refer to purchases of automobiles for
various Haitian diplomatic missions abroad (Paris, London, Buenos-Ayres,
Havana), hotel expenses in Haiti of an economic mission from the United
Nations, travel expenses of a delegation of the Inter-American Committee
for settlement of conflicts, and emergency aid to victims of Ecuador's
disaster.
A decrease of 16% was recorded in expenditures of the Agricultural
Administration, in spite of the fact that a sum of Gdes. 300,000, repre-
senting the contribution of the Haitian Government to the Cooperative
Agricultural Program, was charged to the said Service. Ordinary and







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


supplementary credits of that Service increased from Gdes. 1,351,956.50
in 1947-48 to Gdes. 2,958,607.79. On the other hand, extraordinary cre-
dits decreased from Gdes. 2,912,100.01 to Gdes. 587,464.19.
When compared with the previous year's figures, expenditures of the
Internal Revenue Service expanded by Gdes. 308,445.06 or 13%7, the
increase in internal revenues having caused an upturn of collection ex-
penses. It is pertinent to lay stress on the fact that in spite of that, the
said Service expended Gdes. 151,966.47 less than the amount allotted
to it for the fiscal year under study, as follows:
Gourdes
Ten percent of internal revenue collections........................................ 2,002,688.72
Fifteen per cent of communal receipts ............................................ 565,931.39
Five per cent of stamp sales and vital statistics fees......................... 117,260.71

2,685,880.82

On the basis of estimated receipts the voted budget for the fiscal year
1948-49 contained an operating credit of Gdes. 1,000,000 in favor of the
Internal Revenue Service. But, by virtue of the organic laws of that
Service, the percentage attributed to it becomes automatically available
upon collection. Thus, the excess recorded in the account of the Internal
Revenue Service over the amount carried in the budget amounted to
Gdes. 1,533,914.35 for the fiscal year under review.
The Department of National Economy expended Gdes. 1,097,678.41 or
81% more than in 1947-48. Out of a total of Gdes. 2,4111,430.71 expended
by this Department, Gdes. 1,953,000 served to pay off certain obligations
in connection with the International Exposition, and Gdes. 189,760.37
were utilized to defray expenses of preliminary works dealing with the
general census of the country, which will take place during the year 1950.
The decrease of Gdes. 611,306.95, or 27%, recorded in expenditures
for International Institutions resulted principally from the fact that a
portion of the Haitian Government's contributions to the Health and
Sanitation Cooperative Program (Gdes. 300,000), and to the Cooperative
Agricultural Program (Gdes. 300,000), did not appear under that heading
as was the case last year, but, rather was paid in 1948-49 from extraordi-
nary credits opened to the Department of Public Healfh and to the Agri-
cultural Service, respectively.
The fiscal year under study was the second year of existence of the
Tourism Department, which improved its organization and presently
possesses the necessary equipment to carry out its functions, hence, the
substantial increase recorded in its expenditures, which include Gdes.
336,764.40 for propaganda and advertising purposes.
Relative to expenditures of the Departments of Commerce, Religion
and Agriculture, no special comment is to be added to the data furnished
in the tables included in, or appended to, the present Report.

Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti
Fiscal Department

Expenditures of the Fiscal Department of the Banque Nationale de la
R6publique d'Haiti amounted to Gdes. 2,385,985.53 in 1948-49, as com-
pared with Gdes. 2,347,918.42, in 1947-48, or an increase of 1.61%. These

low. The totals shown above include all expenditures of the Customs
Administration (Customs Control, Customs Statistics, fifteen customs
offices and one customs agency), of the Central Service of Public Ac-
counting, General Customs Inspection, Internal Revenue Inspection and
Imports Handling Service at Port-au-Prince custom-house.


Telephone, Telegraph, Radiocommunications
and Hydraulic Services

Since the fiscal year 1944-45, the Telephone, Telegraph and Radio-
communications Service, on the one hand, and the Hydraulic Services,
on the other, have their respective budgets distinct from the general bud-
get of the Republic, with their own ways and means and expenditures
estimates, approved by their Boards of Administration before submission
to legislative sanction. Financially, these two Services are administered
as non-fiscal accounts, their collections being credited to special accounts
while expenditures connected to the operation and betterment of the said
Services are drawn from funds credited to the said accounts.
The following tables show the results of the last five fiscal years for
these two autonomous administrations.

In the same line, its seems interesting to show at this place the receipts

with operations of certain public organizations which may be considered
as State enterprises. In studying the figures in question, one should not
lose sight of the fact that some of these organizations render to the state
certain services without charge while receiving from it all or part of their
personnel's salary.

Communal Accounts
Since the opening of the fiscal year 1941-42, communal funds are col-
lected and accounted for in conformity with provisions of the law on
budget and public accounting applicable to non-fiscal revenues. Table
No. 52 (See Appendix) shows receipts and expenditures of each of the
93 Communes for the fiscal year 1048-49.
The law of Sptember 8, 1948, having abolished the special < communal projects of public utility and extraordinary expenditures,, and
for the first time since six years, the Communes were in position,

It should be stated at once that this method of presentation of the
balance sheet emphazises not only the deficit recorded as of September
30, 1949, but also and above all the readily noticeable disquieting lack
of equilibrium between current assets and liabilities. But, it suffices to
refer to the above detailed balance sheet for the fiscal year 1948-49 to
note that the balance of non-fiscal accounts, which represents roughly
two-thirds of the current liabilities is not itself a current item. Unpaid
checks alone are effectively current since the unobligated balances of
extraordinary credits may be blocked at any time. In consequence, there
was, at the fiscal year's end, no immediate risk of embarrassment for the
Treasury. Nevertheless, prudence, would commarld to neglect in the
future no means of maintaining the Treasury's liquidity at a reasonable
level.
Public Debt

At September 30, 1949, the gross public debt of the Republic of Haiti
amounted to Gdes. 39,802,877.79 against Gdes. 45,400,266.70, as of Sep-
tember 30, 1948. The above amounts comprised the following elements:

The net balance due at September 30, 1949, on the Internal Loan re-
presents the difference between the face value of outstanding bonds and
the balance of unused amortization funds.
The net proceeds of the Internal Loan amounted, on September 30,
1949, to Gdes. 38,885,257.90 against Gdes. 37,516,985.15 at September







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


30, 1948. The portion of this amount which was transferred to the ac-
count aProvisions for Economic Equipment of the Country,, with a view
to serving what was, after the financial liberation, the second purpose of
the loan, stood, at September 30, 1949, at Gdes. 14,579,271.10 against
Gdes. 13,210,998.95 at September 30, 1948.

The balance of the account aProvisions for Economic Equipment of
the Country- amounted, at September, 30, 1949, to Gdes. 3,685,773.65
against Gdes. 7,932,500.90 at September 30, 1948. Of these amounts,
Internal loan bonds purchased by this account represented Gdes.
3,664,062.90 and Gdes. 7,845,826.40, respectively.

The National Defense Loan, a new heading on the table of the Haitian
public debt, was authorized by the law of February 14, 1949, and issued
at par and at an interest rate of 3% per annum, in an amount of $3,000,000
or Gdes. 15,000,000, divided at first into two, then into three series. The
law of March 10, 1949, repealed the provision which rendered compulsory
for officers and employees carried on the budget, and all those who re-
ceive a remuneration from the state or the communes, to subscribe to
this loan.
The amount shown at September 30, 1949, for the National Defense
Loan represents the difference between issued and outstanding bond cer-
tificates, on the one hand, and the amortization fund balance, on the other,
as of the same date.
It is pertinent to mention at this place that, with a view to financing
the projects to be undertaken in the Artibonite Valley, an agreement was
signed on July 6, 1949, by the Republic of Haiti and the Export-Import
Bank of Washington and sanctioned by the law of August 30, 1949. By
virtue of the said agreement, there is appropriated to the Republic of
Haiti a credit of $4,000,000, from which 4% interest bearing advances
shall be effected by the bank in exchange for promissory notes under
certain conditions stipulated in the contract. Each promissory note is
reimbursable in thirty semestrial instalments, the first of which falling
due three years after signature of the first note. In pursuarfce of the said
accord, the law of September 2, 1949, created the Artibonite Valley De-
velopment Organization, an autonomous public institution vested with
full financial, technical and administrative responsibility as to the projects
to be carried out.

The Budget

The law of September 6, 1948, published in the Moniteur No. 89 of
September 27, 1948 set at Gdes. 67,775,359.70 the budget of ways and
means for the fiscal year 1948-49 and at Gdes. 67,417,845.72 (adjusted
amount) the budget of expenditures.








REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Total expenditure authorizations for the year, amounting to Gdes.
97,869,594.26, embrace the following items:
1. Total ordinary budget;
2. Unexpended balance in extraordinary credits as of September 30,
1948, since article 7 of the finance law assigns a two-year duration
to these appropriations;
3. Such amount as the organic laws of the Internal Revenue Service
automatically authorize that Service to expend in excess of its bud-
getary allowance; as was explained in the section of this report re-
ferring to expenditures of the said administration;
4. Total allocations authorized during the fiscal year less all such
credits, the funds for which are supplied through legal cancellation
of other allowances.
Assuming that all provisions of the finance law relative to ordinary,
supplementary and extraordinary credits have been strictly adhered to,
it is obvious that the difference between total authorized expenditures and
total unused credits during the course of the fiscal year are equivalent
to the amount actually expended. The said unused expenditure authoriza-
tions were as follows:
1. The unexpended balance in budgetary appropriations at Sep-
tember 30, 1949 (to be cancelled on October 1, 1949);
2." The balance in the extraordinary credits expired during the course
of the fiscal year, in conformity with article 7 above mentioned;
3. The unexpended balance in extraordinary credits at September 30,
1949 (to be carried forward on October 1, 1949).
The following table shows the operations as itemized above, for the
fiscal year 1948-49:

BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Banking and Currency
Average monthly loans and discounts reported by the Banque Natio-
nale de la R6publique d'Haiti and the Haitian branch of the Royal Bank
of Canada, amounted to Gdes. 23,007,307.99 against Gdes. 16,178,484.25.
in 1947-48.
Individual deposits again showed a decrease by comparison with the
previous fiscal year, and they too were under those of 1946-47. Average
monthly deposits recorded by the two banks, exclusive of those of the
Government, amounted to Gdes. 35,848,938.48 in 1948-49 against Gdes.
38,866,655.06 in 1947-48.
Taking as a basis the fiscal year 1937-38, which is considered in most
international financial statistics as the last pre-war normal year, loans and
discounts as well as individual and Government deposits indexes may be
presented as follows: Loans and Individual Government
discounts deposits deposits
1937-38 ....................................................... 100 100 100
1944-45 ....................................................... 107 297 247
1945-46 .................................................... 129 304 250
1946-47 ....................................................... 196 305 261
1947-48 ....................................................... 232 294 356
1948-49 ....................................................... 330 271 171
The decrease noted in Government deposits results from the policy
adopted two or three years ago, tending to appropriate for public works
liquid reserves that the Treasury theretofore used to keep unemployed,
as a margin of security. It is not equally easy to interpreted the decrease
in individual deposits recorded concurrently with an increase of loans
and discounts. The latter symptom to be sure indicates a more (active
participation of banks in the economic life of the country through finan-
cing of commercial or industrial enterprises with appropriate guaranties.
According to statistical records, Haitian currency circulation, exclusive
of United States dollars (for which the estimate was set at Gdes.
10,000,000 and Gdes. 17,500,000 on September 30, 1948 and 1947, res-
pectively) consisted of the following items at the close of the fiscal year
under review, as compared with the same date of the previous year:
Sept. 30, 1949 Sept. 30, 14S

31,678,010.96 28,552,209.21
In consequence, there was from one fiscal year to the other an increase
of 9.8% in the volume of Haitian currency circulation.
Building Activity
During the fiscal year 1948-49, according to information furnished by the
Private Building Control Section (Department of Public Works), a total
of 220 construction permits were issued for Port-au-Prince, thirty-three
for Petionville and six for Kenscoff. These latter represented a value

of Gdes. 447,000. The following table shows data relative to the building
industry in the first two localities for the present fiscal year as compared
with the previous one.

It should be added that, possibly under the impulse of the law of Fe-
bruary 2, 1948, bearing on improvement of the commercial section of the
capital, the above mentioned service received 131 applications for permits
to repair, improve, transform or arrange buildings. Seven permits of
these sorts were also granted for Petionville.
Furthermore, construction permits for eight hotel plants, of an estim-
ated total cost of Gdes. 5,000,000, were issued during the fiscal year under
review.
Air Traffic
In spite of a decrease of 167 or 13% in the number of planes which
visited Haiti during the fiscal year 1948-49, an increase of 21% was re-
corded in the number of passengers landing in, or leaving, Haiti by air,
as compared with the previous fiscal year. The number of parcels carried
by planes, as well as their weights and values increased in noteworthy
proportions.

ACTIVITIES OF THE INTER-AMERICAN COOPERATIVE
AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION SERVICE
OCTOBER 1948 SEPTEMBER 1949
The Service Coop6ratif Inter-Americain de Production Agricole
(SCIPA), an agency of the Department of Agriculture, succeeded the
Foodstuff Production Cooperative Program on July 1, 1948, by virtue of
an accord signed by the Haitian Government and the Government of the
United States of America, represented by the Institute of Inter-American







BANQUET NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Affairs. SCIPA'S activities in the course of the fiscal year extending from
October 1, 1948 to September 30, 1949 were as follows:

For the first months of the period, SCIPA continued to function by means
of the cooperative funds provided for in the contract of June 30, 1948,
which provided for a contribution of $100,000 by the Institute and of
$300,000 by the Republic of Haiti. On June 30, 1949, the contract was
renewed for an additional period of one year with a provision for a
contribution equal to the preceding year's by the two parties. The projects
were continued with the addition of a new project, which refers to possibi-
'lities of construction of inexpensive small irrigation systems; budgets were
prepared for each project separately.

Surveys on irrigation possibilities of the Gonaives Plain were under-
taken by SCIPA's engineers corps, as well as a preliminary study of the
Aquin-Aux Cayes region, for the same purpose. The regions visited were:
C6tes-de-Fer, Aquin, Saint-Louis-idu-Sud, Cavaillon, Port-Salut and Aux
Cayes. Construction work was continued at Fonds-Parisien where water
was brought to about 500 hectares of land through a concrete canal and
a forced conduit originating at Lastic, on the Creuses river; work also
was resumed at Villard on the bank's water pipe, and at the diversion
dam at St-Raphael.

Investigations on existence of underground sheets of water at Cul-de-
Sac, Gonaives, Jacmel, Arcahaie and Moustiques Plains were carried out
by Mr. George Taylor, of the U.S. Geological Survey, a specialist in the
matter. A complete and itemized report was submitted in April 1949 to
the President of the Republic.

At Damien, the garage was enlarged and new buildings were construct-
ed, including a warehouse and a repair shop; furthermore, a gasoline
pump was installed as well as the necessary equipment for washing and
greasing of cars. This garage is charged with the upkeep and repair of all
SCIPA's equipment.
The agricultural production project made considerable progress in the
course of the fiscal year under review. New extension offices were opened
and work was begun at the following regions: Fonds-Parisien, Dub6dou,
Villard, Saint-Raphael, Port-de-Paix, Marbial, La Vall6, and La Gonave,
including intensification of cultivation of chicken corn or Egyptian Shallu,
of which 30,000 pounds of valuable seeds were harvested on the Damien
farm; formation of cooperatives; starting of 4-H clubs. Measures were
taken with the Department of Agriculture to control hog cholera. A very
close cooperation existed between SCIPA and certain services of the Go-
vernment, notably the ,R6gie du Tabac, (Tobacco Bureau), with which
a contract was signed with a view to establishing a tobacco nursery at






REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


Saint Raphael. By virtue of this contract, the necessary land, agricultural
implements and labor as well as the seeds were furnished by the Tobacco
Bureau, while technical supervision of cultivation work, harvest and to-
bacco processing were provided for by SCIPA. An accord intervened with
the Department of National Education for the purpose of supplying tech-
nical assistance to rural schools, and demonstrations were made on culti-
vation of chicken corn, raising of hens and establishment of crossbreeding
stations. A course of practical training was delivered, in 1949, during the
summer vacations, to the National Agricultural School. The students per-
formed the following work: irrigation, weeding, insecticide application and
training in agricultural mechanics.

At Damien, the demonstration farm continued its experiments on selec-
ted species and vegetable cultivation. A project of bird-raising inaugurated
upon suggestions of the President of the Republic had a considerable
success. One day's chicks were imported from Miami and kept at Damien
in metallic incubators of a 500 capacity, then vaccinated and distributed
by the extension project. The races imported were: New Hampshire Red,
Barred Plymouth Rock and Rhode Isiland Red. A number of 1i7,000
chicks were imported and portioned out from January 1 to October 1,
1949.

Upon request of the President and the Secretary of State for Agricul-
ture, SCIPA assumed management of Damien's dairy on July 1, 1949.
The dairy was reorganized, the buildings were modernized and steam
pipes were installed to insure more cleanliness, thus reducing to less than
5,000 the number of bacteria. Production and sale of milk products con-
siderably increased, thanks to improvement of pastures and to efficient
management. Average production increased from 7,000 liters of milk
with 21 cows in June, to 9,500 liters with 23 cows in September. Dr
Vyrie Stauffer, a specialist in cattle rearing, came to Haiti for a few
months, prepared a report on sanitary conditions of animals and made
some recommendations. He offered many demonstrations on veterinary
science matters at Damien and at the raising farm, Hinche.

At Bois Dehors, development work took place on 200 acres. Rice
cultivation was turned back to the peasants, thus initiating a new system
of cooperative cultivation. Tracts of land were repartitioned to about 103
families and the SCIPA's agent in the region granted the peasants all
desirable supervision. The last rice crop yielded 300,000 pounds. A land
owner was given assistance in the clearing of his fields near the Estere
Bridge, in view of their cultivation. By virtue of this contract, about 60
acres of land were cleared and ploughed, after which they were planted
in rice, beans and plantains by the owner.







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


Work was resumed, in December 1948, on the Villard irrigation pro-
ject. On October 1, 1949, the bank's pipe was 90% completed and the
main work, 75%; furthermore, the main canal was entirely finished while
7 kms of the main lateral canal had been excavated. The project will be
ready for use within a period of three months.

The main canal at Fond-Parisien has been completed. This project in-
dludes 6 kms. of concrete coating and 4 kms. of pipe-conduit (conduite
forcee. The complete Rivibre Creuse's water supply at Lastic is brought
to cultivated lands.

Saint-Raphael's irrigation project was begun in October 1948. On Oc-
tober 1, 1949, the main work, the diversion dam, which will require a total
volume of 3,000 cubic meters of concrete and masonry, was two-thirds
completed. Other work executed consisted of 8 kms. of main canal, and
two culverts including a 300 meter section coating in the city of Saint-
Raphael.

The Department of National Education acquired a Portadrill rotating
boring tool, which was received in September 1949. This machine was
delivered to SCIPA to be used in carrying out the program of well boring
in selected regions of the Republic as soon as the pipes ordered from
abroad have been received.

Balance of Payments

Since the foregoing table differs so entirely from the regular set up
of balances of accounts, it is pertinent at this place to explain how this
table was arrived at and to determine its exact meaning as well as its
technical value.
In view of the lack of complete and sound statistical data, it was not
possible, to establish a balance of payments with individualized headings
relative to all international transfers of merchandise, services, capitals and
income having affected Haitian economy for periods of years. Most of
categories connected with the so-called "invisible" items of the balance
of accounts, cannot be directly ascertained, for the time being. Aside from
the merchandise export-import couple and from the trade balance pro-
vided by our customs statistics for more than thirty years, no accurate
data is available under other headings, such as: 1) expenses in Haiti of
foreign tourists, expenses abroad of Haitian tourists; 2) income transferred







BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'HAITI


to their countries by foreign laborers residing in Haiti, on the one hand,
and by Haitian laborers residing abroad, on the other hand; 3) investment
abroad of private Haitian capitals and foreign investments in Haiti; 4)
periodical income proceeding from the said investments and amounts
transferred to their beneficiaries, etc.
As is evidenced above, these are data of no negligible importance. Un-
willing to merely reproduce more or less sound estimates, often uncon-
trollable, it appeared more appropriate to us to set up a table according
to a different method, but based on accurate data furnished by govern-
ment records and local banks.
The first heading of the table above shows, for each year, the cumul-
ative total of funds transferred through the Haitian banks. A few ad-
justments were effected in the case of a number of commercial transfers
operated out of the local banks. This first section, by far the most im-
portant, had to be completed by addition of Governmental transfers and
of the Banks' own transfers, which were entered in the subsequent section.
The second heading comprised the mass of transfers connected with
issuance and serviceing of the public debt (payment of interest and amor-
tization, exchange of bonds, etc.).
The third heading shows the Haitian Government's expenditures abroad.
In regard to these payments, drafts on New York are issued directly by
the Fiscal Department; thus, these amounts do not appear in exchange
operations recorded by the banks. Things stand otherwise as concerns
governmental receipts collected abroad, which are transferred to Haiti
through the Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti.
Under the fourth heading are shown the figures for the banks' own
transfers (principally transfers of actual currency), which are registered
apart from the Section i1 operations.
It is convenient to examine at this place the principal theoretical ina-
dequacies of this method and the means to reduce them. Firstly, the
procedure tending to record international exchanges under their "financial
aspect" rather than their "actual aspect," does not permit, for the first
group of bank transfers, to show separately the various types of operations
or to state precisely their nature and relative importance: exchange of
merchandise and services, transfers of capitals and income. Moreover, a
number of actual transfers are necessarily omitted in using that procedure.
There may be mentioned: 1) gifts in kind; 2) commercial compensations
(barter); 3) exports paid for directly abroad, the amount of which is
not immediately repatriated, either because it has been deposited to banks
out of Haiti or for the reason that it served to pay for imports.
In fact, so far as concerns Haiti's international exchanges, these three
theoretical cases de not offer the same importance nor do they constitute
to the same extent obstacles to the establishment of Haiti's balance of
payments. In the opinion of customs authorities, gifts in kind and barter







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


transactions appearing in our foreign trade statistics along with incoming
and outgoing merchandise, are very restricted. However, the same is not
true so fas as regards the third case. Collections abroad and posting in
foreign banks of amounts proceeding from Haitian exports are regularly
carried out only by just a few enterprises established in Haiti; but, it
happens that these concerns are precisely those whose volume of sales on
foreign markets are the highest. In fact, this is the case of four great corpo-
rations functioning with foreign capital and more or less directly affiliated
to institutions or firms located abroad. The small number of such enterpri-
ses and their heavy exports especially facilitated our adjustments. These
four concerns, which are engaged in sugar, molasses, sisal and banana
exports, realized about 31% of total Haitian exports for the three years
under review and cashed through local banks, only a portion of the
amounts involved. The following table shows the amounts in question for
the said three years as well as our adjustments.

Aside from these very peculiar cases, collecting and posting of amounts

abroad are not carried out on a very large scale by other firms dbing
business in Haiti since the financial means available to them are not ex-
tensive enough to permit postponement for any long period of repatriation
of amounts receivable, and, on the other hand, they are not so closely con-
nected with foreign economic associations. Thus, these considerations
permitted us to adjust, if not entirely, at least to a certain extent, the
deficiency envisaged above.
There is, at last, a category of transfers of funds which could not be
entered under the regular classifications: it covers incoming and outgoing
actual money (notes, currency) brought by travellers. A reliable estimate
of the yearly amount of import and export of funds by travellers remains
fairly difficult to set up.
Taking into account the inconveniences stipulated above, numerous
practical advantages motivated the choice of this method for computa-
tion of Haiti's balance of payments. In the first place, there may, be men-
tioned the effective accuracy of the figures, all of which were extracted
from the accounting records of the Fiscal Department and from statistics
kept by that Department or by the local banks, to which sources the
greatest confidence may be accorded. :
Secondly, the major part, if not the lump, of Haiti's international-ex-
changes, are thought to be covered by that method. In the opinion of
top officers of our finance and customs administration, the:ratio of
accuracy of the present balance of payments would be over 85%~ ;:i-;..








BANQUE NATIONAL DE LA REPUBLIQUE D'IAITI


At last, the main reason of our choice lies above all in the impossibility,
through another procedure, to reach a similar result on the basis of the
incomplete data otherwise available to us.
Nevertheless, we do consider such a method as essentially provisional as
we earnestly desire to be able to release, in a not distant future, a com-
plete and intemized balance of Haiti's international payments, according
to standard procedures. Meanwhile, it is our hope that the information,
as presented, will be of some interest and that our work has been of some
avail.

CONCLUSION

From the standpoint of Government revenues, the fiscal year under re-
view proved to be the most prosperous Haiti ever knew. Collections
reached an unprecedented figure, while foreign trade results practically
stood at the 1947-48 level, which had exceeded the figures recorded for
any previous fiscal year.
Nevertheless, fiscal expenditures for 1948-49 surpassed by Gdes
10,216,452.41 the fiscal receipts of the same period. This lack of equili-
brium is due, for the most part, to preparatory work undertaken in con-
nection with the International Exposition of the Bicentennial of Port-au-
Prince. The fiscal funds visibyl contributed to that enterprise during the
fiscal year 1948-49 were as follows:
Gdes.
Department of Finance .................................... 11,815,028.33
Department of National Economy........................ 1,953,000.00
Department of Public Works ............................. 1,510,000.00
15,278,028.33

Among the efforts made in the course of the fiscal year toward
the economic development of the country, it is proper to mention the
contract for the Artibonite Valley, those signed for electrification of seve-
ral provincial cities, preparations for the general census of the population,
the visit upon the Haitian government's invitation of an economic mission
from the United Nations, and financing of tourist hotels. Haitian fiscal
legislation also made some progress, details of which are indicated in ap-
propriate sections of the present report. More important still happens to
be the new direction taken with regard to taxation, which is considered
as an instrument of economic prosperity rather than a simple means of
enriching the public Treasury. The State consented to reduce or adjust
certain taxes to the expense of its immediate interest but with a view to a
durable benefit to the community.
In September 1949, the Government submitted to the Chambers two
projects of law aiming to industrial development and protection of Agri-
culture, which were passed on October 8. The first provides for total or
partial fiscal exoneration (license, patent, income tax, import and export







REPORT OF FISCAL DEPARTMENT


customs duties) in the case of new industries for a period not to exceed
five years, and of industrial enterprises in general, (license, patent, income
taxe) for a maximum duration of two years. The second law permits
duty-free imports of practically all tools, appliances and fertilizers required
by that branch of activity and regulates export of seed cakes and olea-
ginous seeds.

It is expedient, however, to stress that sporadic measures taken
without a general plan constitute but a mere palliative to the economic
uneasiness faced by the country. The convenient procedure to be followed
should consist of the setting up of a general scheme based on a survey
of the country's possibilities. It will then be possible to organize the
fiscal structure so as to increase domestic productivity through encourag-
ing opening or expansion of industries using local raw material.

In any case, it seems that the function of the fisc as an adjuvant to
the economy is growingly accepted in Haiti. Thanks to this new concep-
tion of the State's responsibilities, there is reason to expect that productive
enterprises and foreign capital as well, assured of an equitable treatment,
will no longer fear the effects of a short-sighted and ruinous rapacity.

It is gratifying for the undersigned to close the present Annual Report
of the Fiscal Department, Banque Nationale de la R6publique d'Haiti,
for the fiscal year 1948-49, with such encouraging prospects ahead.
