earnings was reflected in a
5,534,843 dollars drop in imports.
And business men who keep an
eye on the world situation were
trimming their inventories in a
period of retrenchment set off
by the truce in Korea.
The greatest import decline
was in commodities of popular
consumption, such as dry goods,
clothing, flour and dried or con-
served fish. Some,luxury Items,
: such as automobiles and refrig-
erators, also showed decreases.
During the fiscal year 1953 im-
ports exceeded exports by 7,360;-
830 dollars, whereas during the
fiscal year 1952 Haiti showed a
. favourable trade balance of
2,229,192 dollars. !
S. HAS DEFICIT
The Government, .which de-
pends fupon' export-import taxes
for most of. its revenue, eroded
the 1952-53 fiscal 'year with a de-
fioit of 780,000 dollars,- which
was advanced by' the Natidhal
Bank of Haiti. Qualified econoi-
mic observers say, 'however,
. that this does not indicate ahy
grave financial weakzne!s of the
Administration. When the pre-
sent coffee crop, now estimated
at 28,000,000 kilograms, is ex--
ported1. Government revenues'
shotild show a considerable in-
rease over the '1952-53 fiscal
year, and it seemsvery probable
that the revenuess will exceed
* the conservative 25,839,379 dol-
. Dry weather late in the sea-
h' Is reported to have cut
down a bit on the lowlgnd coffee
yield,. but the mountain 'crop is
,-' reported to .be .above average.
Prices on the world market are
tnot expected to, decline because
of the short Brazilian, crop and
mnay even be'boosted.
.In it campaign to stimulate
agricultural, exports the Gov-
ernment- is leasing' 4,550 acres
of state-owned land to several
Haltiail companies for sisal pro-
duation. The depression of the
wonld sisal- prices has caused
many peasant producers to turn
away .from sisal to' more profit-
able crops In 1952-53, 20,000.
metric tons of 'the fiber were ex-
ported a 6,000-ton','drop from.
.the year before.
NEW PLANT ,TO BE BUILT
A new .1,000,000 dollar cocoa
processing plant to be set up and
financed by United St1s "capt
tat in the outh-of laiti 'is ex.
peoted to improve the grade and
stimulate the yield of this com-
modity, which has slipped to
fourth place on the export list.
Last year 2,100,415 kilograms of
cocoa were sent out of the coun-
try slightly more than a
1,000,000 dollar crop.'
The Government is also tak-
ing steps to revive the produc-
tion of bananas through small
land-holders, there being no
.large plantations productive
since the withdrawal of the
Standard Fruit and Steamship
Corporation. The new Habanex
Corporation, in which the Gov-
ernment has an interest, sup-
plies farmers with banana suck-
ers for as little as 1 cent each
and teaches them how to care
for the plants and control dis-
ease. Eventually Haitians hope
,to re-establish the banana crop
as an important cash ipco.p.
during the dead season.-
Haiti's fastest growing foreign.
exchange earner is. its bu~ding
tourist industry. Some 34,000 re-
sort travelers visited the Caril-
'bean Republic in the fiscal year'
'1952-53, a 70 per cent increase
over the year before. And there
is every reason to believe these
figures will soar in' 1954, as
