THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


REPORT OF THE TWENTY-FIFTH FISCAL PERIOD
DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP
WILLIAM E. PULLIAM,,GENERAL RECEIVER


OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, March 11, 1932.
SIR: Pursuant to instructions of the general regulations, the annual
report of transactions of the Dominican customs receivership for the
calendar year 1931, which corresponds to the twenty-fifth fiscal
period, is respectfully submitted herewith. A summary of commerce
for the year, with complete statistical tables of the foreign trade, is
incorporated.
Introductory to this report it is in order to relate briefly the eco-
nomic situation confronting the country during the very trying year
1931, when the commercial crisis became accentuated. In this the
third consecutive year of falling prices and general stress the Domini-
can Republic experienced the full force of the prevailing depression.
The country must of necessity rely for its prosperity on the returns
from a few staples regularly exported. The purchasing power
naturally depends on the marketing of these products. In common
with world-wide conditions, sales continued at price levels lower than
heretofore, with the principal crop, sugar, marketed in some instances
at an actual loss to the producers. Consequently the well-being of the
people was adversely affected. A dislocation of public finances
followed when governmental income from all sources was reduced to
much below estimates made at the commencement of the year.
With bank credits greatly restricted or entirely withdrawn, com-
merce reflected the crisis which brought about notable shrinkage in
the volume of imports.
COLLECTIONS
Gross customs collections for the year amounted to $2,883,476.92, a
decline of $711,091 compared with 1930, or 19.78 per cent. The
downward trade tendency which became manifest in 1929 when the
world-wide commercial financial equilibrium was upset, continued to be
to such an extent that for comparative purposes of volume it is neces-
sary to go back to the year 1921-another period of acute commercial
depression-when the customs collections totalled $2,859,866t.40.
*1






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The first half of 1931 was better from a standpoint of revenue yield
than the second half, which indicates, the aggravated situation as
the year progressed. Importations were confined to the pressing
needs of actual consumption. Importers were not justified in bringing
in surplus stocks which likely would meet competition in a falling
market.
Of the total mentioned, import duties accounted for $2,820,232.44
against which in 1930 the yield was $3,505,338.43, a shrinkage of
$685,105.99.
Full particulars of these collections, sources, and ports of entry,
are tabulated in the usual form and may be found in schedules 5, 6, 7,
and 8, Appendix A. Decreases in relation to the previous year like-
wise are shown. (The amounts diverted under provisions of the
Emergency Law are shown in schedules 1, 3, 4, and 9 of Appendix A.)

DISBURSEMENTS
For the first time in the history of the Republic the disposition of
customs revenue handled in 1931 was not strictly in accordance with
the provisions of the convention. The explanation of that deviation
is afforded by the operation of the emergency law having for its prin-
cipal object a moratorium of sinking-fund payments due for account
of the outstanding Dominican bonded indebtedness. Particulars of
the law with pertinent comment and remarks on its application are
discussed in another part of this report.
In the aggregate, $1,386,578.95 represented sinking-fund payments
and $914,361.55 for account of interest; a total of $2,300,940.50 was
transmitted to the fiscal agent. The interest payments were divided
corresponding to the bond issues of 1922 and 1926, respectively.
For account of the former (Dominican Republic 42's) 12 monthly
installments were paid, a total of $495,582.45, and for account of the
latter issue (Dominican Republic 40's), $418,779.10, the equivalent
of 10 monthly installments, January to October, inclusive--subsequent
payments to complete the year were made direct by the Dominican
Government in pursuance of the emergency plan. To complete the
December interest payment of the 1922 bond issue, $15,000 was
returned by the special agent of the emergency law and is included in
the total indicated. For further particulars of the service of the
loans attention is invited to remarks under Bonded Indebtedness.
Customs expenses proper totaled $131,961.53, or the cost to collect
of 4.58 per cent. A relatively very small sum of $105,000 was paid by
the receivership to the Government, and these transactions were
confined to three months, when small remainders were available after
disposition of receipts in accordance with the established practice,
A recapitulation of disbursements is outlined in Schedules 1, 3, and
5, which form a part of Appendix A. Importance attaches tY

Schedule 9, made up of the payments to the Government for the
first nine months of the year, and a larger amount, $440,430.34,
diverted from customs collections corresponding to the last week of
October and November and December, which was taken over by the
Government under the emergency legislation heretofore mentioned.

COST OF OPERATION
Under the important administrative heading dealing with the
expenditures incurred for operation in 1931, it is advisable to refer to
the discussion of the same subject in the report for 1930. The decline
in customs collections therein related continued throughout 1931,
thus making more difficult the maintenance of a proper standard of
efficiency and control at a time when it became necessary to continue
the policy of reduction and retrenchment wherever possible, in order
to keep within the stipulated allowance contingent upon the gross
receipts.
Complying with instructions of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, a
deficit of $10,823.66 in the cost of operation relating to 1930, treated
a matter of first concern, was fully covered as a credit to the general
account during the first months of the year. This was in addition
to meeting all current obligations, to accomplish which the cost to
maintain and operate the entire service was considerably under the
budgetary authorization for 1931-$187,462. Compared with that
amount the total expenditures for operation charged to the 5 per cent
allowance of the convention was $131,961.63, a difference of $55,500.47.
On the basis of customs collections ($2,883,476.92) 5 per cent of
this amount made available the sum of $144,173.84. Cost of opera-
tion was 4.58 per cent. The favorable showing under very adverse
circumstances made possible the adjustment of the deficit carried
over from the year before- as well as providing funds to meet an
expenditure of an extraordinary nature-repairs to Government
property occupied by the receivership, which was greatly damaged at
the time of the hurricane, September 3, 1930. The outlay under this
heading was $3,267.73, special authority for which was granted as it
represented an item not included in the budget for the year.
The practice was continued of charging to the internal-revenue
section a fair portion of the expense corresponding to salaries and
cost of equipment for work performed by customs employees who are
of necessity required to render service to this branch in order that it
may function economically and satisfactorily and thus subserve the
best interests of the Government. The total expense was $37,157.62.
Again the fact is recorded that while the percentage cost of collec-
tion has risen during recent years coincident with the notable decline
in customs collections, yet for the long range of service of the receiver-






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


ship in Santo Domingo, its annual average cost has been under that as
allowed by the convention, the differences or unexpended portions
reverting to the Government for its general administrative use.

RECAPITULATION (APPENDIX B)
Under this heading a permanent feature is retained in the annual
reports of the receivership in order to make available and of easy
access a consolidated statement of the financial accountability, dating
from the commencement of operations (April 1, 1905), of this service.
All collections, miscellaneous receipts, and dispositions made of same
to December 31, 1931, are recapitulated. A grand aggregate of
customs collections is shown-$106,746,244.22, in which amount are
included 1931 collections, $2,883,476.92, although it becomes neces-
sary to repeat that of the latter amount $440,430.34 were diverted
from receivership control.
Among the smaller countries perhaps none has done more than
Santo Domingo in the application of such a large portion of its customs
revenue ($52,569,276.82) to payments on account of foreign loans
during the same period.

BONDED INDEBTEDNESS
During a year of admittedly great financial stress the Republic
maintained an enviable record in the service of its foreign debt at a
time when several of the Latin American Republics allowed both
interest and sinking fund payments to become in default. Though
internal expenditures were greatly curtailed, personnel reduced, and
salaries lowered for all employees of the public administration, the
foreign indebtedness was reduced in a considerable sum, for all pay-
ments due by virtue of the contract loan agreements were promptly
met in full until the month of August, .1931, when customs collections
declined to a point insufficient to meet the combined loan charges.
Confronted for the first time with that exigency, it became necessary
to resort to the clause contained in the loan contracts providing that-
In the event that in any year the customs receipts of the Republic should be
insufficient to meet the payments herein provided to be made, the Republic shall
provide such funds as may prove to be necessary.
The Government therefore advanced the sum of $36,595.74 neces-
sary to complete the sinking-fund payment due August 20, 1931, for
account of the bond issue of 1926. For the month following (Septem-
ber) the difference was $42,291.28 for which funds were not available
at the receivership nor did the Government provide. That repre-
sented the first default, although partial, of a sinking-fund obligation.
In October the situation became aggravated; the difference to make
up the total required was $77,589.43, which amount likewise was







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 5

not provided by the Government. In both instances reference is
intended to the issue of 1926. Subsequent to October, 1931, sinking
fund payments on both issues, or all outstanding Dominican bonds,
have been in default.
However, there was transmitted by the receivership from January
1 to October $1,386,578.95 to the fiscal agent for credit of the sinking-
fund accounts. With these funds the agent was enabled to purchase
in the open bond market Dominican customs bonds of a par value
$1,688,000 at a cost of $1,464,331.18, so that by the end of the year
the total amount of bonds outstanding was reduced to $16,593,500.
Tabulated statements follow herewith and contain complete
particulars of these transactions.
These Dominican securities have enjoyed a splendid reputation in
the past and because of the strength they have shown were among the
last to be seriously affected by the acute situation which engulfed
world finances during the closing months of 1931. These bonds had
been purchased regularly for retirement throughout the year from
January to September. Prices were well maintained but during the
last quarter the fiscal agent was enabled to make some purchases at
less than half of the stipulated redemption price and in doing so real-
ized a considerable benefit for the Government. The fact that interest
payments have been maintained should support the value and general
reputation of these securities in the New York bond market where they
have been looked upon with favor during the past 20 years.

REVIEW OF COLLECTIONS

For ready reference of those interested in the Dominican import
trade, particularly the changes which have characterized recent years,
there is inserted a statement of total customs collections, 1920 to
1931, inclusive. The 12-year period starts with peak of the postwar-
trade movement followed by the sudden drop, extends through the
prosperous years which terminated in 1929, and shows the marked
decline since. Throughout the entire time the same customs tariff
was in force and the volume of the import trade is well reflected in
the total of customs collections for the individual years.

INSPECTION

For the first time in the course of operations under the American-
Dominican Convention, the Dominican Government directed that a
special inspection and audit be made of the receivership accountabil-
ity as contemplated by the provisions of paragraph 9 of the general
regulations governing. For the purpose a commission was named
composed of the comptroller and auditor general and the chief of the
revision section. Formal advice under date of September 10 was
received announcing the disposition, and the officials named at once
commenced work. Their investigation was supplemental to the usual
check and examination of the accountability reported monthly to the
Government, when there are regularly submitted full and complete
duplicates of all statements dealing with receipts and disbursements
of funds handled by the receivership and for which it is responsible
under the convention. This service welcomed the departure taken
by the Government as it is deemed desirable from a standpoint of
efficient administration that regular examinations be made so that






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


any pertinent comment offered may be received for consideration
and necessary action in any way which may lead to betterment.
In addition to the local inspection and examination the Bureau of
Insular Affairs also conducted its examination as specifically pro-
vided for. Col. Creed F. Cox, United States Army, assistant to the
chief of the bureau, who was designated to visit Santo Domingo,
arrived December 17 and was enabled to discuss with Government
officials features of especial interest which had been made the basis
of remark during the course of the earlier inspection.
THE EMERGENCY LAW
At the very commencement of 1931, with a further decline in cus-
toms collections in evidence, it was apparent that if interest and sink-
ing fund payments amounting to $238,095.74 a month, or a total for
the year of $2,857,148.88, were covered by customs collections, there
would be no balance available for the Dominican Government. Con-
sequently at the time when the combined loan charges had reached
the maximum, the returns from customs had shrunk more than 40
per cent from normal. The acute situation which resulted may be
better appreciated when it is stated that the Government has relied
on the remainder of the customs revenue for a considerable part of
its income with which to defray in part the expenses of administration.
Since the cyclone of September 3, 1930, the Government was con-
fronted with increasing difficulties for lack of funds. In an endeavor
to obtain some measure of relief, a commission was sent to the United
States to negotiate with banks and other financial institutions for a
loan. No success followed the efforts to obtain outside financial
assistance. The condition of the bond market precluded possibility
of a new loan. Retrenchment and drastic reductions in personnel
failed to square the declining receipts with the budget, which was
reduced on more than one occasion during the year. The Govern-
ment took the position that the only effective relief measure within
its control would be to divert a large part of the customs collections
to its administrative needs, thus setting aside for the time being, the
requirements for sinking fund payments on the outstanding bonded
indebtedness, but making plain its intention not to default on the
regular monthly interest obligations.
To attain the end sought, what is known as the Emergency Law
No. 206, published in Official Gazette No. 4404, October 24, 1931,
was enacted. Its principal feature provides for the diversion from
the receivership for direct use of the Government the customs reve-
nue collections at certain ports of entry, which revenue otherwise
would continue to be applied to sinking fund payments pursuant to
the contract loan agreements under the convention.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The law contains specific provisions for the interest payments to be
met as a first charge against the customs revenue, subject only to
payment of cost of operation, following in that respect the provisions
of the convention, after which a monthly total of $1'25,000 would
become available for the Government.
Under the circumstances and recognizing the difficulties which be-
set the Dominican Government, the attitude of the United States
Government was announced in a statement prepared and released to
the press by the State Department for publication November 11, 1931.
The statement is quoted in full herewith:

DOMINICAN REPUTBIC--FINANCIAL MEASURES

The economic 'conditions of the Dominican Republic have suffered in common
with the rest of the world and were made much worse by the disastrous hurricane
of September, 1930. The conditions have become so serious and the revenues,
including both customs and internal revenues, have declined so abruptly that the
Dominican Republic has informed the Department of State that it has found it
necessary to adopt emergency legislation giving priority to the interest charges
on the foreign loans but temporarily diverting certain customs revenues from
the payment of amortization on these loans, applying the amounts so diverted to
the maintenance of vital governmental functions and the preservation of law and
order upon which the ultimate payment of the external debts must depend.
The Dominican Government communicated to the Department of State in
advance its intention and the facts upon which its action is based, together with
a statement of the drastic economy measures already taken in an endeavor to
meet the situation. The Dominican Government frankly recognized that the
step proposed by it is not only a violation of the obligations as to the holders of its
securities but also a violation of the convention between the United States and
the Dominican Republic. After an independent investigation by the department
confirming the existence of the serious situation in the Dominican Republic, the
department informed the Dominican Government that it has noted the steps
which that Government felt required to take and the reasons therefore; and that
the additional funds thus made available to the Dominican Government as a
measure of last resort would be spent with the greatest care in maintaining vital
governmental functions by an official specially designated to administer the same
as a special emergency fund. The department has noted the firm intent of the
Dominican Government to make as soon as possible the payments now to be de-
ferred, and called attention to the fact that the measure proposed would neces-
sarily extend the life of the receivership of customs for so long a period as the
amortization payments are held in abeyance. The department added that with
an understanding of these special circumstances thus pointed out the policy of the
United States Government would be guided.
Having in mind the provisions of the convention between the United States
and the Dominican Republic, and in view of the circumstances set forth above,
this Government is not disposed at this time to take any action other than to
continue to follow with attention and care, the developments in the Dominicain
Republic. It is the belief of the department that this policy will be the best for all
concerned, including the bondholders upon whose bonds the Dominican Govern-
ment proposes to continue to pay interest regularly. (From Press Releases,
a publication of the Department of State, Washington,dated November 14, 1931.)







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The administration of the customs service is not affected by the
radical departure from the requirements of the convention, and re-
mains with the receivership, exactly as heretofore, except for the
provisions of decree No. 251, which directs that all collections at the
three principal ports-Santo Domingo, San Pedro de Macoris, and
Puerto Plata--be diverted and placed to the credit of the special
agent for the emergency appointed by the Dominican Government.
Receipts for duties collected at those ports are now given by
"Interventores Especiales," representing the special agent. But
in all other respects the administration of the office routine continues
with the receivership. In other words, there is a minimum of change
from the old order.
By its decree No. 259, article 5, the Government contemplated
that there would" be no interruption of the accountability of the
receivership and that it would continue to render complete statistical
returns of all customs transactions.
The legislation in question contains two significant features. The
first depends upon an improvement in the fiscal situation and provides
that when in any 6-month period of the fiscal year of 1932 or of 1933
the total of the receipts of the general funds of the nation reach the
sum of $2,250,000, the emergency law shall cease to be effective; the
second clause of special importance limits the duration of the law to
the close of 1933, if not otherwise abrogated by the fulfillment of the
condition described above in this paragraph.

INTERNAL REVENUE
The receivership completed its first calendar year of collection of
internal revenue accruing at the customhouses for the Dominican
Government under the special arrangement in effect. This work was
undertaken in September, 1930, as was fully outlined in the annual
report for that year. With experience gained it was possible to
simplify and at the same time improve the administration.
There have been certain modifications of the laws and rates since
this work was commenced. Those affecting rates were sponsored by
the Government, the probable intent being an increase in the revenue.
At the instigation of the receivership important changes were made
in method of operation with a view to eliminating excessive detail
and its corresponding expense. Also, the many laws and regulations
relating to this service were assembled, printed, and bound in booklets
for distribution and reference of those interested.
As 1931 was an off year, a comprehensive comparison can not be
made with other years. But it may be stated that in keeping with
collections from all sources of governmental income the internal
revenue declined much below the amounts collected in previous years.
These collections for the year 1931 totaled $1,652,669.58. Tables







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


showing the sources of the several amounts collected under various
laws and disposition of the receipts have been assembled and are
incorporated in a new Appendix E, page 109.
SUGAR
Of all commodities among the staple foods of universal consumption,
none has experienced a greater reverse than sugar during recent
years. Overproduction had operated to lower the price even before
the commencement of the world-wide depression. The vicissitudes
which have come to the sugar industry have been particularly felt
in Santo Domingo, where in addition to the big drop in value there
was the constant handicap of restricted markets.
The products of sugarcane, which include raw sugar, refined
sugar, and molasses, continued to represent the bulk, or 66 per cent,
of the total value of Dominican exports, and this notwithstanding the
fact that price received was the lowest on record.
Incident to the crop, heavy and continued rainfall at times made
the work of transporting cane from fields to mills more difficult and
also added to the expense. The 1931 production was considerably
less than in the proceeding year.
Sugar-buying countries as a rule have granted tariff protection to
aid their own sugar production. Canada recently enacted similar
legislation. As Santo Domingo consumes only about 5 per cent of its
sugar, it must depend almost entirely upon the overseas trade for a
market for this its chief product. Owing to the preferential customs
treatment given Cuban sugar, Santo Domingo sugar can not compete
with the Cuban in the American market. The United Kingdom has
been the principal purchaser of Dominican sugar for the last several
years, and it appears that the European market (English and French)
is the only one where Santo Domingo may reasonably expect to sell
its sugar.
When the price of sugar declined below what was originally con-
sidered the cost of production, the sugar estates of Santo Domingo
met the situation by a complete reorganization of production methods.
As the price of sugar continued to fall they forced the production
costs still lower. How much farther this can be carried remains a
question. One thing is apparent-Santo Domingo production costs
will compare favorably with those elsewhere in the world, and there-
fore, unless something very unforeseen occurs in the industry, Domi-
nican sugar will continue to constitute the leading tonnage crop
of the country.
DOMESTIC RICE
Two factors have operated to bring about a decided decrease in
rice imports into Santo Domingo during the past several years. As
a consequence customs revenue has been affected, because rice is






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


one of its heavy contributors, but to offset that loss there has been
an economic gain to the country in the successful local cultivation
of the staple. Quite naturally, with the depression, the volume of
the rice trade declined as did everything else, but the controlling
reason for the decrease has been the domestic cultivation to such
extent that the industry produced rice in 1931 in an aggregate amount
(15,957 metric tons), which almost equaled imports (17,495 metric
tons) for the same period.
Rice is now being produced in all the Provinces of the Republic.
There are practiced the various methods of cultivation, some parts
of the country by irrigation, while in certain Provinces dependence is
on the rainfall. With ample good land available and the dry sections
possessed of a plentiful supply of river water for irrigation, the only
measure of the quantity that may be cultivated is the demand for it.
The Dominican Government through its active department of
agriculture, by intelligent cooperation with the farmers, has been
largely responsible for the increase in the cultivation of rice. The
estimated value of the rice crop produced in the country in 1931 was
$1,000,000. This sum divided among the rice growers was of great
benefit, and rice cultivation will continue to be one of the important
factors in the industrial life of the country, for there is no doubt but
that the production of rice will be increased. With customs duty,
freight, and shipping costs in its favor, the home-grown staple enjoys
about 2 cents a pound protection over the rice imported.
The quality of the rice produced is considered excellent. The
domestic article is for sale in stores throughout the country and is
meeting with more favor as it becomes better known to the people.
It is only a question of time until this important crop will be raised in
quantities sufficient to supply the entire needs of the country.
STARCH FOR EXPORT

Despite the fact that the year 1931 saw very little new capital in-
vested and a big reduction in the amounts employed in the production
of the various crops of Santo Domingo, there appeared for export a
new commodity-yucca starch. For the first time in the history of
the country this article was manufactured and exported in considera-
ble quantities. Hence, the industrial experiment, which was referred
to in the receivership report for 1929, has been successfully carried out
to the practical extent that it may be considered the beginning of an
addition to the number of diversified crops.
Cultivation of yucca for the manufacture of starch has been under-
taken in Santo Domingo on a rather extensive scale. A modern and
complete plant is in operation which will manufacture for export.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

A complete set of statistical tables which furnish particulars of
value and volume of all imports and exports, including countries of
origin and destination, respectively, will be found under the heading
Appendix C, commencing on page 39. For comparison, tables give
figures for the preceding year (1930).

FOREIGN TRADE

The declared value of merchandise imported into the Republic in
1931 was $10,151,762 as compared with $15, 229,219 in 1930, decrease
of 33 per cent. Exports also were considerably down in value, but
not quite to the extent of imports. Total value of exports for the year
was $13,067,162, while that for 1930 was $18,551,841, a decrease of
30 per cent.
The total foreign trade for the year amounted to $23,218,924, or a
falling off of 31 per cent in comparison with 1930 and 58 per cent as
compared with 1928, the peak year since 1921.
As indicated by the figures stated, the trade balance was in favor of
the Republic to the amount of $2,915,400. While this is somewhat
under aggregate for preceding year, the showing is satisfactory under
the prevailing trade conditions.
For convenience the following table is inserted to show origin of
imports, destination of exports, and total trade by countries for 1930,
and 1931.

Groups discussed in preceding paragraphs necessarily have been
confined to principal imports, based on quantity and value, but these
as well as all others are embraced within Schedules 1 to 7 of Appendix
C, which may be consulted for the usual statistical data of imports.
The arrangement includes comparative tables for 1930.

PRINCIPAL ARTICLES EXPORTED

Tabulations follow covering a range of the last five years for the 10
leading Dominican exports. Values and quantities are shown. The
comparison of 1931 with 1930 includes the destinations. The 10
exports comprise 95 per cent of the whole outgoing trade and are
made up of agricultural products.
1. Sugar, raw.-For 1931 as in many years past raw sugar was the
article of export of chief value. The table following gives quantities
and values, 1927 to 1931. It will be noted that the last year was the
lowest in value. Even with this reduction, the value of sugar exported
was 58 per cent of all exports for the year.

CARRYING TRADE

The Republic continued to have ample steamship facilities for its
foreign-trade movement; ships of various nationalities maintained
the service required by the several entry ports. Reduced imports.
and exports resulted in light cargoes, and shipping interests expe-
rienced a loss of income from smaller freight tonnage offered.
Arrivals.--Ships of American registry led all others in the amount
of import cargo carried, with 33 per cent of the total, or cargoes valued
at $3,343,198. That was a decrease in the tonnage carried, also in
the percentage of the total, which was 39 per cent for 1930.
Norwegian vessels occupied second place in 1931, the same rela-
tive position they held in 1930, with cargoes valued at $2,362,386, or
23 per cent of the total. Most of these Norwegian ships are char-
tered by American shipping companies and the greater part of the
merchandise carried was of American manufacture.
German ships came third on the list with goods valued at $1,816,354,
or 18 per cent of the total. That was an increase of 7 per cent over
the previous year.
Dutch carriers occupied fourth place-cargoes values at $1,097,841,
or 11 per cent of the total.
British ships came next, with combined cargoes valued at $622,823,
or 6 per cent of the total.

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Carriers of other nationalities which took part in this trade were:
Cuban, Dominican, French, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Swedish,
Japanese, Venezuelan, and Haitian.
Departures.-Ships of British registry occupied first place in export
trade, carrying cargoes valued at $4,413,893, which was 34 per cent
of the total, $13,067,162. Practically all of the freight carried by
British shops was raw sugar consigned to ports in the United Kingdom.
American vessels came second with 19 per cent, or a total cargo
value of $2,463,809.
German shipping occupied third place, which was held by Holland
the previous year. German vessels took cargoes valued at $1,668,399,
or 13 per cent of the total.
Norwegian carriers took fourth place with 11 per cent.
Ships of the following nationalities participated in the trade to the
extent indicated: Dutch, 6 per cent; Italian, 3 per cent; French, 2
per cent; Spanish, 1 per cent; Cuban, 1 per cent; and all others, 10
per cent.
Schedule 2 for imports and Schedule 9 for exports of the Summary
of Commerce give in full details the respective scopes of inward and
outward cargoes, with nationality of vessels engaged in same. For
entrances and clearances by countries of registry and tonnage move-
ment, Schedules 15 and 15a may be consulted. Schedules 16 and 16a
contain same data arranged to show transactions by ports of entry.
Exclusive of the ordinary carrying trade (by vessel), air traffic
imports having a declared valuation of $1,770 were received in 1931.
From Haiti via land ports merchandise was imported valued at
$5,290. And there were dispatched across the frontier to Haiti
exports valued at $59,786.

TONNAGE MOVEMENT
There was a marked decline in the aggregate tonnage of cargoes
entered and cleared in 1931 as compared with 1930. Imports were
125,277 metric tons, being 20 per cent less than in 1930 (156,868
tons). Exports totaled 511,543 metric tons, or a falling off of 28 per
cent, a difference of 194,754 in comparison with the previous year
(706,277 tons).
The loss in export tonnage is largely explained by the virtual dis-
continuance in 1931 of sugar cane shipments to Porto Rico.
All cargo in and out represented a tonnage of 636,820, while in 1930
the total was 863,145, a reduction of 26 per cent (226,325 tons).

CONCLUSION
During the period of economic depression and dislocation of com-
merce, through which the entire world is passing, the experience of
the Dominican Republic has been similar to that of most small coun-

tries which depend principally upon their agriculture. Economic
betterment is contingent on the sale abroad of the country's agri-
cultural products at prices which will give fair returns. That condi-
tion has not obtained for some time past and until the desired com-
mercial equilibrium is restored there can be no general improvement.
