THE AMERICAN-DOMINICAN CONVENTION, 1924


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

OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, April 17, 1938.
SIR: In accordance with the general regulations governing, there
is respectfully submitted herewith the annual report of the Dominican
customs receivership for the calendar year 1932, which was the
twenty-sixth fiscal period of operations under the convention between
the United States and the Dominican Republic. Reference is made
in the narrative section to trade conditions and developments of inter-
est. There is the usual review of all financial transactions of the
receivership, which includes service rendered for account of the
Dominican national bonded indebtedness. A complete summary of
commerce embracing the usual statistical tables of imports and exports
is a prominent feature of the report.
The downward trend in economic conditions prevailed throughout
the year and was reflected in the decreased purchasing power of the
people, hence there was a general decline in the volume of imports.
On the other hand, there was a decided increase in tonnage of the
country's exports, largely attributed to the excellent sugar crop,
the largest to be exported, also to the increased tonnage of cane ship-
ments to Puerto Rico.
COLLECTIONS
The year 1932 takes its place as the lowest in customs collections
since operations began under the convention in 1907. The gross
aggregated $2,772,357.38, a decrease of $111,119.54, or 3.85 percent,
as compared with 1931. There is encouragement to be had in the
fact that the year's decline was not as great as that for 1931 (19.78
percent), comparisons being with the years next preceding. Shrink-
age in customs receipts was gradual throughout the period and
undoubtedly due to the general depression even more noticeable in
other countries. As usual when treating with a falling market, mer-
chants confined their importations to urgent needs.
Import duties to the amount of $2,703,500.50 supplied almost all
the gross receipts, and while the shrinkage was $116,731.94 it was
1

partly compensated for by an increase of 23.92 percent in port dues,
the next largest item. This gain resulted from the resumption of
sugar cane exports to Puerto Rico.
Full details of customs collections will be found in the statements
and comparative tables appearing under appendix A, schedules
5, 6, 7, and 8.
NOTE.-For particulars of operations under the Emergency Law by which the
larger portion of the customs collections were diverted, reference is invited to the
remarks under that heading and schedules 1, 3, 4, and 9, appendix A.
DISBURSEMENTS
To make the record complete it is necessary again to state that the
customs revenue of the republic collected in 1932, as was the case in
1931, was not disposed of in strict accord with the provisions of the
convention with regard to the service of the loans, for the reason that
the Emergency Law, which provides for the moratorium of sinking-
fund payments of the Dominican bonded indebtedness, for the stipu-
lated period, was in operation throughout the year.
The receivership met in full the interest payments on the out-
standing bond issue 1922-26 (Dominican Republic 42's) by equal
monthly installments totaling $457,242.60. However, in order to
complete the amount required it was necessary to requisition $284,000
on the special agent charged with the operation of the Emergency
Law.
During the year one payment only was made to the credit of
sinking-fund accounts, the amount, $50,000, was applied to the bond
issue of 1922-26. These funds also were supplied by the special
agent, being a part of the surplus accumulated under the Emergency
Law, by the provisions of which the sum was returned to the general
receiver who at once transferred it to the fiscal agent as a sinking-fund
payment.
The administrative customs operation expenses amounted to
$126,219.70 and were well within the 5 percent convention allowance.
Eleven thousand and forty-eight dollars and four cents was disbursed
for and to the debit of account of the Government, a service the
receivership renders to the Government as a part of the established
routine.
Further details of disbursements will be found in appendix A and
its accompanying explanatory schedules 1, 3, and 5.
COST OF OPERATION

For the fourth consecutive year, with the necessity for retrench-
ment and economy ever present, cost of operation again was forced
down and kept within a reduced budget. The record low total of
custom. collections for any 1 year, $2,772,357.38, made available the
'*:. .." :.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


sum of $138,617.87--the 5 percent convention allowance. Of this
amount, $126,219.70 was disbursed for regular administrative pur-
poses, or 4.55, the percentage cost to collect. Practically all of the
remainder, about $12,000, was disbursed pursuant to special authority
of the Bureau of Insular Affairs. The principal items were: for
reconstruction of the official residence of the deputy general receiver,
$7,595.95; repairs to wharf and customs buildings at port of Santo
Domingo, $1,718.41; and repairs and painting of the central office
building, $514.41. Under normal conditions the Government would
have attended to the repair work which had been pending execution.
since the cyclone of 1930, but owing to lack of funds it was neces-
sarily delayed.
Notwithstanding the fact that no balance of the 5 percent allowance
remained available at the end of the year, the showing is considered,
very favorable in view of the indirect saving for the Government made
in the matter of the repairs mentioned, and because the 5 percent
allowance continued to bear more than its share of the 'combined
receivership expenses-5 percent for customs and 4 percent forinternal
revenue. The latter allowance, including balance of $2,865.67 from
1931, furnished $63,192.53 for operation, of which only $50,048.08
was applied, leaving $169.08 in the fund at the end of the yeaT, after
turning back to the Government $12,975.37, the result of efficient
economy. The percentage cost of collection for internal revenue was
3.32.
Although the saving would appear at first glance to the credit of
the 4 percent internal revenue account, in reality the 5 percent cus-
toms operating account is entitled to equal recognition. Such a
saving at the present time is of special interest and was only made
possible through the benefit now derived in the arrangement for the
joint work and the constant practice of economy.
To illustrate: In 1930, after intensive retrenchment, the total cost
of operation of the customs service alone was $190,552.06, whereas
during the year covered by this report the total of administrative
expenditures of customs and internal revenue combined aggregated
but $176,267.78, an amount considerably less than that spent for the
one service as noted just 2 years previously.
RECAPITULATION (APPENDIX B)
On page 67 will be found a medium of ready reference embracing a
consolidated statement of collections, expenditures, and dispositions
of funds made by the receivership since the inauguration of the service
April 1, 1905. Gross customs collections for the entire period :ag-
gregated $109,518,601.60. In connection therewith it is necessary
again to state that the total includes certain customs receipts diverted
for application under the Emergency Law, discussed in this as well as







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


the previous receivership report for 1931. During the long period
Santo Domingo has experienced prosperous years as well as lean ones,
which have prevailed since 1929. Notwithstanding the shrunken
condition of fiscal returns, the Dominican Republic has to its credit
a splendid and unbroken record of having promptly met interest
payments on its outstanding bonded indebtedness.
LOAN SERVICE
It cannot be recorded that 1932 witnessed any improvement in the
general loan situation of the Latin American republics; on the con-
trary, the effects of the depression continued to bear heavily on them
as well as on the rest of the world. Credit therefore is due and
recognition should be given to those governments which have made a
conscientious endeavor to comply with their international obligations.
The Dominican Republic figures in this list, for it met regularly
throughout the year all interest payments due, and in addition set
aside the modest sum of $50,000 for the purchase and retirement of
its 5% percent customs bonds due in 1942.
In 1932 a total of $913,781.16 was paid for interest charges to the
credit of the Dominican Republic national bonded indebtedness.
Of the amount, $457,242.60 represented payments made by the
receivership.
Further retrenchments in costs of administration have been made
and resources strained to uphold the country's credit abroad. In
common with other countries in the same plight, it will be to the ad-
vantage of Santo Domingo to have its position clarified and its obliga-
tions to pay reestablished to agree with existing financial conditions
and the probable developments of the future. The overdependence
on a limited group of export staples, the prices for which have con-
tinued to decline in foreign markets, creates a difficult fiscal problem.
BONDED INDEBTEDNESS
With but one sinking fund payment during the course of the year
($50,000) with which the fiscal agent was enabled to purchase Domini-
can Republic customs bonds 5Y's due 1942 of a par value of $95,000,
that transaction constituted the only change in the amount of the
outstanding bonds at the close of 1932, in comparison with similar
statement published in the preceding annual report of the receiver-
ship. The amount outstanding December 31, 1932, was $16,498,500.
The statement is complete and shows the total payments of both
interest and sinking fund on account of the several loans since
negotiation.

ARREARS IN SINKING-FUND PAYMENTS

To be read in connection with the foregoing statement showing
the amount of unredeemed bonds as of December 31, 1932, there
follows a tabulation of sinking-fund payments in arrears on out-
standing customs bonds of the Dominican Republic on the same
date. It embraces the entire year 1932 and the concluding months
of 1931 when the financial situation caused by the continued decline
in customs collections brought about default of sinking fund pay-
ments, commencing the month of November 1931 for the bonds due
1942, and September (partial) for the bonds due 1940. For account
of the former the total of the payments in arrears was $931,944.42,
and for the other issue $1,298,214.03, an aggregate of $2,230,158.45.
The monthly as well as the annual amounts due are indicated, also
the one payment of $50,000 made in 1932 to apply to the credit of
sinking fund of the 1942 bonds.

CHANGE OF FISCAL AGENTS

By the terms of decree no. 595 published in Official Gazette No.
4536, January 4, 1933, the Government accepted the resignation
dated December 5, 1932, of Lee, Higginson & Company as fiscal
agent of the Dominican Republic for the loan contract agreements
under which the following bond issues were negotiated and continue
in effect:
(a) Issue of 1922 for $10,000,000, interest rate 5% percent,
date due March 1942.
(b) Issue of 1926, first and second series, for $10,000,000,
interest rate 5% percent for a period of 14 years, due
1940.
To carry on the required loan service there was nominated a new
fiscal agent, the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, which will take
over the same obligations established in the original contracts with
the exception of payments on account of outstanding Dominican
bonds in the cities of Boston and Chicago. That service will be con-
tinued by the Lee, Higginson Corporation, for which purpose it will
receive from the Guaranty Trust Co. the necessary funds. The
effective date of the change was January 29, 1933, at the close of
the prescribed period for necessary publication, giving advice of the
transfer. All bonds retained in the sinking-fund accounts of the
two loans, together with any balance of funds and interest on hand
to the credit of the Republic, were to be delivered to the new fiscal
agent.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


It is of much interest to note that the designation of the Guaranty
Trust Co. as fiscal agent again places with that internationally
known banking organization the loan service for the Dominican
Republic, it having previously acted in that capacity for the original
loan of $20,000,000 issue of 1908, negotiated under the terms of and
pursuant to the stipulations of the American-Dominican convention
of 1907, when the service it rendered extended over the period from
1908 to 1927.
COMPARATIVE DECLINES
There have been obtained the official figures of customs collections
in the principal Antilles, also the United States, for the 4-year period
1929-32, inclusive, in order to ascertain and record the relative
percentage of declines experienced in each of the countries. Puerto
Rico is included, although the same customs tariff did not prevail
during the entire period-the tariff act of 1930 provided rates of
duties higher than those previously in effect, so that in that island
there was 25.97 percent increase in customs duties for 1932 compared
with those of 1929, a unique record. All the other countries registered
decided decreases; to wit, the Dominican Republic 44.23 percent,
Haiti 34.50 percent; for Cuba the decline was 43.72 percent. It is
of particular interest to note that during the identical period, in the
United States the falling off in customs collection was 45.30 percent,
from which it would appear that the restricted purchasing power as
reflected in the reduced volume of imported merchandise was prac-
tically the same in the small Caribbean countries, depending entirely
on agriculture, as in the United States, the latter country typifying
both agriculture and manufacturing industries.
With reference to Haiti, an analysis of the economic situation during
the recent years of the depression reveals that the duty levied on
coffee exported yields the largest single item of customs collections,
and furthermore coffee has been the major tropical crop (compared
with sugar, tobacco, and cacao) that has suffered least in shrinkage of
value received in the foreign markets. It followed that the purchasing
power of the Haitian people was not affected adversely to the same
extent as in either Cuba or Santo Domingo where the main dependence
is on other crops (sugar and tobacco in Cuba, and sugar, cacao and
tobacco in Santo Domingo) all of which have been marketed at such
disastrous prices as to mean very little net return to the exporters.
The statement follows.

EMERGENCY LAW
The review of receivership customs transactions in 1932 would not
becomplete without reference to the functioning of the Emergency
Law,,the history of which legislation with an outline of the objectives
involved, was discussed in the receivership report of 1931. With no
change for betterment in fiscal conditions, the necessity for such legis-
lation has been justified.
The Government received a very large portion of the customs
revenue to be applied toward the general cost of administration.
This was accomplished by the diversion of customs receipts of the
three principal ports-Santo Domingo, Macoris, and Puerta Plata-
to the special emergency agent, who in turn applied same as directed
by the Government under the new legislation.
Of the total customs collections of 1932, $2,772,357.38, the three
major customhouses remitted $2,455,478.00 (88.57 percent) to the
special emergency agent.
Punctual payments in full of interest charges on the Dominican
outstanding indebtedness were made in strict accordance with the
contract loan agreements. The issue of 1922 by the receivership,
$457,242.60, and the latter issue of 1926, both series, by the special
emergency agent, $456,538.56, or a total of $913,781.16. The latter
amount was practically one third of the entire customs collections
for the year, which demonstrated in a very forceful manner the
shrinkage in these fiscal returns, compared with previous years, and
how heavy is the obligation now resting upon the Government to
meet promptly its interest payments on the foreign loans.
The existing situation makes it quite evident that there can be
no resumption of total sinking-fund payments stipulated in the con-







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


tract loan agreements, in the absence of what would be a most re-
markable recovery in the general economic conditions for which at the
present time there is no outward encouragement. Expiration of the
Emergency Law is decreed for the end of 1933.
(Schedule 9, appendix A, gives a tabulation of those transactions
under the Emergency Law of principal concern to the receivership.)
ANNUAL INSPECTION
Lt. Col. Walter C. Short, United States Army, assistant to Chiel
of Bureau of Insular Affairs, War Department, Washington, was
designated to make the annual inspection of the Dominican customs
receivership as required by the General Regulations governing. The
officer arrived in Santo Domingo July 12, 1932. His work of inspec-
tion was extended to the principal ports of entry-Santo Domingo,
Macoris, and Puerto Plata. During his stay at the capital he met
and conferred with some of the principal Dominican officials and
exchanged views with them concerning the customs routine .and
administration, and particularly the status of the Dominican bonded
indebtedness, sinking-fund payments for which had become in
arrears.
PORT DUES
A change affecting certain receipts heretofore considered and ac-
counted for as customs collections, was made by the Government in
a new law, no. 389, promulgated in Official Gazette No. 4522 of
November 23, 1932, by the provisions of which, article 34 of the
law of customs and ports was modified and practically canceled. As
a working substitute it was decreed that future collections of pilot-
age fees would be for internal-revenue account rather than customs.
The change became effective December 1.
The new law has two objectives-first a substantial increase in the
rate imposed, 8 cents a ton for cargo imported or exported, and sec-
ondly, removal of this class of collections from the customs adminis-
tration and taking same from the operation of the Emergency Law;
in other words, such collections would not be grouped with general
receipts available either for payment of interest charges or on
sinking-fund account.
Total collected as pilotage fees during the 11 months January to
November 1932 was $49,296.98. To complete the permanent record
it should be stated that article 5 of law cited also provided that the
pilotage fees collected in 1932 be liquidated and, after deduction of
the operating costs of the port launches, the remainder be trans-
ferred to the national treasurer. There was an exchange of correspond-
ence with the Secretary of Finance, and on December 31, 1932,
$39,868.12 was transmitted. These funds were not with the receiver-







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


ship, but were requisitioned of the special agent of the Emergency
Law, in order to comply with the new disposition above outlined.

INTERNAL REVENUE
Collections under this heading, which embrace several laws, totaled
$1,505,756.94 in 1932, compared with $1,652,669.58 for the year pre-
ceding, a decrease of $146,912.64 or 8.89 percent.
The decline was accounted for by the reduced volume of, importa-
tions during the year, in keeping with the downward trend in cus-
toms collections proper. The principal producer (Law 190) yielded
$565,311.29, against a total of $690,858.43 for 1931-a loss of $125,-
547.14. Wharf taxes were greater-$537,372.23 in 1932, compared
with $474,946.21 in 1931, an increase of $62,426.02; while a decrease
in the imports of alcoholic beverages was largely responsible for the
shrinkage in receipts under Law 949 from $204,293.98 in 1931, to
$161,926.42 in 1932. Consular fees and document-stamp taxes make
up the bulk of the remainder of the internal-revenue collections.
During the year there was a further consolidation of the routine of
this section with the regular work of the receivership. As made of
record in previous reports, while customs duties on imports are col-
lected under the convention, certain defined internal-revenue taxes
are collected by the receivership as an aid to the Dominican Govern-
ment, and the operation continues in effect in accordance with aspe-
cial agreement entered into September 1930. Since the arrangement
was inaugurated, the Government has enlarged the scope of these
collections by the enactment of additional laws, the application of
which has been given the best attention of the receivership.
Notwithstanding the extra work, there was refunded to the Gov-
ernment, of the total available for operating expenses, the sum of
$12,500, as unexpended balance.
A complete set of tables of the accountability of internal-revenue
collections and disposition of all funds received thereunder will be
found in appendix E, page 155.
AGRICULTURAL CAMPAIGN
The receivership has pointed out on many occasions the very
favorable agricultural position of Santo Domingo, with its possibilities
for larger crops to meet the demand for food products in the neigh-
boring islands. Not confined to 1 or 2 principal crops, the efforts of
the Dominicans have extended the cultivation of plantains, potatoes,
onions, yams, etc., for which there is a market with the assurance of
some profit. The situation of these crops relatively is better than
that of the principal ones (sugar, cacao, tobacco, and corn) which have
been marketed at ruinous prices. Only a fraction of crops are raised
that might be with the abundance of fertile land at hand. And it is








REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP 13

with that feature, the volume of more profitable exports be increased,
that the Government has shown special interest.
The Department of Agriculture and Commerce has cooperated for
more intensive cultivation and has been engaged in a very laudable
campaign to encourage the agriculturist to increase his crops so that
greater quantities can be sold even at the lower prevailing prices.
This will offset to a certain extent the losses compared with what was
heretofore considered normal prices for the same class of products.
It can be stated that the results so far obtained are satisfactory
and the effort on the part of the Government to aid the small grower
has been well received.
RAINFALL

Notwithstanding the continued economic depression which has
affected to such a great extent the returns received for agricultural
products, while some have suffered greatly in the amount produced,
total tonnage showing compares favorably with past periods. In view
of the importance of rain as an element in successful agriculture, there
have been obtained reliable statistics from the different sections of the
country, of rainfall for the 10 years 1923-32 inclusive, (by 6-month
totals) and same are published in this report in a convenient form for
reference and permanent record, that they may serve a practical
purpose in connection with the future development.

14 REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

SUGAR
The sugar industry in Santo Domingo has been developed from
an export crop of 48,069 tons in 1905 to 439,541 tons in 1932. This
covers the period during which the receivership has operated. Dur-
ing all that time no Dominican export has had such variation in price.
The 1905 crop of 48,069 tons sold for a declared value of $3,292,470
or an average of $0.0310 per pound.
In 1920, 158,804 tons were produced and exported at a total de-
clared value of $45,305,620 or an average of about $0.13 a pound.
This was at the apex of the industry. The prosperous financial
returns for 1920 appear almost incredible when considered in con-
nection with the steady decline in sugar prices received in subsequent
years.
Nineteen hundred and thirty-two was the banner sugar year for
production and export, namely, 439,541 tons, marketed abroad at
prices yielding far less than $0.01 a pound and aggregating a value of
$6,859,474. By way of marked contrast, in 1920 about one third
the quantity, 158,804 tons, brought $45,305,620-over six times as
much as the 439,541 tons produced in 1932.
While the tonnage of sugar produced has been increased, the num-
ber of estates grinding are less, several of the smaller mills having
been forced out by the depression. All of the principal estates
maintain their acreage and plant sufficient new fields to sustain more
or less the present level of production. The unprecedentedly large
crop of the year was not due to increased acreage, but a splendid sea-
sonable rainfall added greatly to the yield.
The cheapness of labor allows the cane cultivation to be done at
a cost below that of other sections, so with the crop being maintained,
Santo Domingo will occupy a favorable position when there is a real
revival of trade.
Although 1932 was the biggest tonnage year for sugar, it gave the
smallest money return since 1914. Even with the low price, sugar
continues the principal export of Santo Domingo, both in tonnage
and in value, being more than one half of the total.

RICE
With reference to the remarks under Domestic Rice in the last
annual report, rice imports in 1932 of 11,551 metric tons were valued
at $396,256, against a total of 17,496 metric tons valued at $868,553
in 1931, a percentage loss in quantity of 33.98. Rice is a staple which
has declined enormously in imports during recent years. There was
a further reduction in consumption of the imported article and a
greater dependence on the domestic crop which continued to receive
special attention of the agricultural department, in an endeavor to.
promote more intensive cultivation.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Government sources advise that the domestic rice crop 1932 was
about equal to that of 1931 (15,957 metric tons). Unfavorable
weather conditions operated against a larger yield. For the first
time home-grown rice exceeded the volume of the imported rice. The
cultivation of the cereal may be expected to increase and thus become
an economic gain for the country.
MISCELLANY
Air travel.-The Pan American Airways maintained its splendid
service throughout the year. In January 1932 the general office and
landing port were changed from the Capital to San Pedro de Macoris,
a seaport about 40 miles to the east. The company put into service
hydroplanes instead of the land type that had been in use, for its
established itinerary. As no suitable landing space for seaplanes was
at the Capital, the change to San Pedro de Macoris with its large
harbor affords proper facilities.
Hydroplanes of various types are in use, with a passenger capacity
of from 8 to 48. The American Clipper, the Southern Clipper, and the
Caribbean Clipper are 48-passenger aircraft running weekly from
Miami to San Juan, Puerto Rico, where they connect with planes for
points south. There is one amphibian type, weekly, from Santo
Domingo the capital, to Kingston, Jamaica. The air service for
passengers and mail is triweekly. The transport of express packages
shows a steady increase.
Steamship service.-The successful operation of the weekly passen-
ger steamers in the New York-Santo Domingo via San Juan fast
freight and passenger service under the contract of March 2, 1927, for
a term of 5 years, resulted in a renewal of the contract with the New
York and Puerto Rico Steamship Company for an additional equal
period, effective August 1, 1932, Resolution No. 353 promulgated in
Official Gazette No. 4497, August 27, 1932, which not only grants a
subsidy for carrying the mails but exonerates the several port charges.
The continued liberal support of the Government insures the mainte-
nance of transportation facilities of the first order in a weekly service
between New York and Santo Domingo rendered by the modern pas-
senger steamers Borinquen and Coamo.
To provide additional steamer service for the northern ports the
Government also contracted with the Empressa Naviera de Cuba for
the steamer Presidente Machado to operate on a round-trip schedule
each 21 days, between Cuban ports and Monte Christi, Puerto Plata,
Sanchez, and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Effective date,
January 4, 1933. The contract, which is for 5 years, was authorized
by Resolution No. 428, December 14, 1932, promulgated in Official
Gazette No. 4531 of December 17, 1932. A subsidy and concessions
were granted by the Government and the outcome should prove help-
174414-33----2

ful in encouraging exports from the northern ports to Cuba and
Puerto Rico, for which there will be a dependable carrier.
Automatic telephone service.-The year witnessed the completion of
the installation of an interurban automatic telephone system which
connects 26 cities and towns of the Republic. Starting at the capital
where the system had been greatly damaged and put out of commis-
sion by the hurricane of September 1930, the necessary repairs not
only were made in Santo Domingo but the principal towns were
equipped and connected with toll lines along 1,056 kilometers of the
public highways, so that interurban communication is now available
and offers a high-grade service which extends to practically all of the
sugar estates. The operating company organized under Dominican
laws, is affiliated with a well known American telephone utility
enterprise.
Reconstruction.-Rebuilding of the houses wrecked at the capital
by the devastating hurricane of September 1930, was commenced
shortly after the cyclone and continued during 1931 and 1932, not-
withstanding the economic situation. The city has assumed to a
great extent its aspect of before the unprecedented storm. It is a
satisfaction to note that the new construction of the destroyed houses,
especially in the residential districts, has been of a far more perma-
nent form than when originally built. Most of them will now with-
stand winds of cyclonic intensity.

SUMMARY OF COMMERCE
Under this heading a general review of the foreign-trade situation
follows. The principal articles of import and export, countries of
origin and destination are discussed, and comparisons with the pre-
ceding year are made. Quantities and values are stated. Also a full
set of statistical tables giving in detail all imports and exports, is
available for reference in the summary of commerce which accom-
panies appendix C, page 69.

FOREIGN TRADE
There was no economic improvement and the lack of new public
works together with an increase in unemployment very naturally
influenced adversely the volume of imports.
Nineteen hundred and thirty-two imports were valued at $7,794,343,
or a percentage decrease of 23.22 percent under the previous year,
when imports carried a value of $10,151,762. An appreciable part of
the decrease may be attributed to the reduction in market values of
the merchandise imported, invoiced in many countries in a depre-
ciated currency.








REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


'On'the side of exports extremely low prices prevailed. Dominican
-products for export in the aggregate were valued at $11,164,271 in
"1932, while 1931 exports were $13,067,162, a decline of 14.56 percent
'for the past year. Exports in 1931 were 30 percent under those for
"the year 1930.
The total foreign trade for 1932 amounted to $18,958,614, as com-
-pared with $23,218,924 for 1931, or a further falling off of 18.35 per-
,cent. The showing indicates there was a trade balance favorable to
the Republic to the extent of $3,369,928, which is very satisfactory
-even though the combined values of goods imported and exported
-was 18.35 percent under those of the year preceding.
While all values have decreased here as elsewhere, the country has
!maintained its trade relations with practically all of the countries
-with which it has traded during better years.
Condensed statement of imports and exports and the countries of
,origin and destination is made in the tables which follow.

in 1932 compared with 1931, but the price being low the declared
value is under that for the previous year. The depression has caused
a great decrease in the amount of flour used in the country. The
local substitutes for bread such as plantains, sweet potatoes, yucca,
etc., owing to their cheapness have in a large measure taken the place
of bread.

CARRYING TRADE

Generally speaking, the Dominican Republic has been excellently
served by various steamship lines, despite the fact that poor trade
conditions have meant greatly reduced cargoes. Running to the
various ports are ships of 4 American steamship lines, 2 with home
port at New York, and 2 operating from southern ports of the United
States. From European ports there are 2 German lines and 1 line of
each of the following nationalities: Dutch, French, Spanish, and also
Cuban, with fixed schedules, as well as steamers of other nations
taking or bringing special cargoes. Ships of the regular lines connect
at the large shipping centers, giving Santo Domingo connections with
all sea-borne commerce. Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan,
Siam, India, and Russia are among the far-off countries sending
products to Santo Domingo in 1932.
Arrivals.-Norwegian vessels held first place in carrying import
cargo to Santo Domingo for the year 1932. Hitherto, first place has
been held by American bottoms. These Norwegian vessels are all
chartered by American steamship companies with lines running to
Santo Domingo. The value of goods carried by Norwegian ships
for the year, was $3,202,144, or 41 percent of the total. American
vessels were second, with $2,585,880 or 33 percent of the total.







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


The German, Dutch, and British brought small quantities of cargo,
amounts in the order named.
Departures.-British bottoms were first in the export trade of Santo
Domingo for the year; their cargoes consisted almost entirely of
sugar shipped to Europe. The value of the cargoes was $3,570,682,
or 32 percent of the total. American came next, carrying cargoes
valued at $2,022,252, or 18 percent. Norwegians held third place in
this trade, $1,763,668 or 16 percent. Other nationalities represented:
German 6 percent, Dutch 6 percent, Italian 3 percent, and some
others with smaller amounts.
Under the heading Schedule No. 2 are given full details of allimports,
by countries and carriers, and Schedule No. 9 gives similar particulars
for exports. Schedules 15 and 15A cover arrivals and departures of
all vessels, as well as their nationalities. All cargoes are shown by
ports of entry and departure, under Schedules 16 and 16A.
TONNAGE MOVEMENT
There was a considerable decline in the aggregate of import cargo
for 1932-104,518 tons as compared with 1931-125,277 tons. Of
this amount 52,714 tons came from the United States. Germany was
next, with 14,324 tons. Puerto Rico followed with 8,479 tons. But
there was a large gain in the tonnage export-808,542 over 1931 with
513,109. This remarkable showing in this worst year of the depres-
sion is accounted for by the banner sugar crop, and also by the export
of sugarcane.
Outward tonnage, 808,542; incoming, 104,518-a total of 913,060
tons in 1932.
The leading countries receiving exports from Santo Domingo were
United Kingdom, 289,666 tons, almost entirely consisting of sugar;
Puerto Rico, 247,622 tons, largely sugarcane; United States, 124,688
tons, and France, 108,334 tons, also to a great extent, sugar.
CONCLUSION
The commercial statistics discussed in the preceding pages reveal
the lowest aggregate of values for both imports and exports since
1914. With such a condition prevailing, business has been conducted
along most restricted lines, and the improvement hoped for can only
come when world-wide trade conditions are restored to somewhat
nearer normal levels. When the change for the better comes, Santo
Domingo will be quick to recover, as it has from more than one past
crisis.
Respectfully submitted.
