The American-Dominican Convention, 1924


REPORT OF THE THIRTY-THIRD FISCAL PERIOD DOMIN-
ICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP

OFFICE OF THE GENERAL RECEIVER,
Ciudad Trujillo, District of Santo Domingo,
Dominican Republic, June 8, 1940.
SIR: Pursuant to the general regulations governing, there is respect-
fully submitted herewith, the annual report of the Dominican Customs
Receivership for the calendar year 1939, the thirty-third fiscal period
of Receivership operations.
The report covers, in addition to customs duties proper, certain so-
called internal revenue taxes collected by the Receivership under
special arrangement with the Dominican Government.
Supplementing the statistical information contained in the narrative
section, itemized statements of all collections and disbursements made
during the year, as well as tables showing the quantity, value, and
direction of the foreign trade, will be found in the various schedules
annexed to the report.
Aside from material relating strictly to the customs administration,
the service of the foreign debt and import and export trade, certain
items of more general interest, relating to economic and other develop-
ments which occurred during the course of the year have, as usual,
been included in the report.

COLLECTIONS

In 1939, for the first time in 5 years, gross customs collections
passed the 3-million-dollar mark. The total was $3,031,455.64,
representing an increase of nearly $159,000 or somewhat more than 5
percent as compared with the previous year.
The two principal ports, Ciudad Trujillo and Puerto Plata, ac-
counted for the major portion of this increase, their shares being some
$79,000 and $67,000, respectively. At the minor port of Azua, it is
interesting to note that receipts rose by about 33 percent, from
$16,215 to $21,679. This was undoubtedly incidental to the com-
mencement of oil operations in that locality-a development treated
in some detail further on in this report. Comparative differences at
the other ports are relatively unimportant, the general trend being a
rise in the larger and fall in the smaller.

REPORT DOMINICAN OUST'OMS RECEIVERSHIP


Analysis of gross collections demonstrates no unusual change in the
proportion derived from various sources. Customs duties on imports
of $3,005,396 constituted the bulk, followed by storage charges-
$11,460-and personal service fees-$9,938. Storage charges for
1938 totaled almost $30,000, reflecting, as stated in the report for that
year, an abnormal economic condition which showed improvement
toward the end of the year. The 1939 total of $11,460 for this account
is a return to normal level, and indicative of a healthier economic
situation. The small remainder of gross collections consisted of
public sales (seized or abandoned merchandise sold at public auction)
amounting to $2,669, and fines-$1,988.
For ready reference, there follows a list of gross customs collections
for the past 5 years. The absence of wide fluctuations suggests sta-
bility:
1935----------------------------------------- $2, 839, 063. 35
1936------------------------------- 2,878, 789. 07
1937----------------------------------------- 2,914, 615. 68
1938-------------------------------- 2, 872, 615. 68
1939-------------------------------- 3, 031,455. 64
More complete data regarding collections, including details, by months
and ports, are annexed to this report, in schedules 5, 6, 7, and 8,
appendix A.
DISBURSEMENTS

Distribution of collections was effected and corresponding payments
made in accordance with the agreements governing. In order of
monetary importance they were:
To or for account of the Dominican Government there was dis-
bursed a total of $1,788,805.33. Of this amount $1,772,416.17 was
paid direct, the greater portion, or $1,744,681.89, representing the
customs revenue excess, after deduction of operation and loan serv-
ice expenses, and the unexpended portion of the 5 percent allowed for
operating expenses, $5,734.28 to close out the 1938 balance and $22,000
for account of 1939. For account of the Government there was paid
$9,938.95 because of personal fees, $1,841.82 refund of duties collected
in excess, and $4,608.39 covering certain items, the settlement of
which is made by the Receivership under special authority of the
Government, as a matter of mutual convenience, making a total of
$16,389.16 under this heading.
For service of the bonded debt there was expended $1,103,198.96.
Of this, $1,099,040.04 went to the fiscal agent in New York, $896,-
060.04 for interest charges, and $202,980 for amortization. The
remainder of $4,158.92 was cost of exchange on funds transmitted.
Complete details regarding the application of moneys remitted to the
fiscal agent will be found under the caption "Dominican bonded debt."






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Operation expenses within the year amounted to $104,985.88. They
are treated in detail below under the heading "Cost of operation."
Further account of disbursement transactions will be found in
appendix A, schedules 1, 3, 5.
COST OF OPERATION
Transactions chargeable to operation for the year 1939 came to a
grand total of $123,785.01. Of this amount, there was expended
within the year a total of $104,985.88, the major items of which were:
$85,459.62 for personal services, $6,300 for rental, $6,137.79 for the
purchase of equipment, supplies, and uniforms. Disbursements of
lesser amounts for account of printing, binding, travel, repairs and
maintenance of buildings and grounds, motor transportation, and
miscellaneous, totaled $7,088.47. Outstanding obligations at the end
of the year made necessary the segregation of $8,799.13 by transfer to
the accrued liability general account (1939-40). An additional trans-
fer of $10,000 to the retirement fund completes the grand total men-
tioned above.
The 5 percent of collections ($3,031,455.64 for 1939) allowed by
the Convention, made $151,572.78 available for operation. The
budget (customs) for the year authorized $126,429 for the same pur-
pose. The actual disbursement of $123,785.01 was well within both
limits, being 4.08 percent of collections, and left an unencumbered
excess balance of $27,787.77 under the 5 percent authorized.
Further details regarding transactions under this chapter will be
found in schedules 1, 3, 5, and 13 of appendix A.
OPERATION LIABILITY AND ASSETS
At the close of business on December 31, 1939, there remained
unexpended balances of $1,879.48 and $14,586.36 in the accrued
liability fund (1938-39) and the 5 percent Convention accounts,
respectively. In January 1940, upon termination of audit of the
December 1939 accounts, there was an additional credit of $1,495.90
due the 5 percent Convention account, bringing the total assets up to
$17,961.74. Of this amount, $10,678.61 was segregated in the accrued
liability fund (1939-40) to cover outstanding obligations pertaining
to 1939 operations and the remainder, or $7,283.13, was paid to the
Dominican Government, thereby completing the distribution of
excess balances as provided for in the general regulations governing.
This $7,283.13, plus a previous payment of $22,000, also to the
Government, brought operation savings up to a grand total of $29,-
283.13 for the fiscal year 1939.
Schedules 1, 13, and 14, appendix A, contain further information
regarding these transactions.






REPORT DOMINIOAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


DOMINICAN BONDED DEBT

Servicing of the foreign debt was accomplished according to schedule,
the specified amounts pertaining to both interest and amortization,
being forwarded to the fiscal agent in 12 equal monthly payments
totaling $1,099,040.04. Of this sum, $896,060.04 was for interest,
distributed thus: $440,660.04 to the bond issue of 1922-26, originally
due in 1942 but extended to 1961; and $455,400 to the 1926-26
primarily payable in 1940-prolonged to 1969. For amortization
purposes there was remitted $202,980-$120,180 and $82,800 for
account of the present 1961's and 1969's respectively. This amortiza-
tion payment of $202,980 represents an increase of $142,219.92 over
that allotted to the same purpose for the next preceding year but,
under the provisions of the readjusted loan agreement now governing,
the 1939 amounts will remain constant until the loans are liquidated.
In addition to the fixed amount of these annual remittances, however,
ever-increasing sums, derived from interest accruing on bonds held
by the fiscal agent in the sinking fund "alive" account, will also be
used, annually, for amortization purposes.
According to information supplied by the fiscal agent, from the
amortization funds placed at his disposal, bonds to the par value of
$344,000, $207,000 for account of the 1961 issue and $137,000 for
account of the 1969 issue, were purchased during the year 1939.
This total plus previous purchases, advances the par value of un-
cancelled bonds held in the "Sinking fund alive account" to an aggre-
gate of $1,042,000 and reduces the total of similar outstanding bonds
to $15,250,000 par value.
A table showing the price range of Dominican bonds in the New
York market, by years, since date of issue, will be found under ap-
pendix E of this report.

transactions pertaining to and the condition of the foreign indebtedness

INTERNAL REVENUE

In September 1930, as an emergency measure following the dis-
astrous hurricane of September 3, of that year, but, nevertheless, in
accordance with a plan which had previously been under discussion
for many months, the Receivership took over the administration of
certain taxes levied on imports under the heading of "Internal
revenue." The Receivership's action was taken at the request of, and
pursuant to, a special agreement with the Dominican Government.
This agreement, which was originally entered into for a stipulated
length of time, has since been extended indefinitely, each party retain-
ing the right to terminate the arrangement upon 3 months' notice. In
9 years of operation, revenues from the "Internal revenue" source
have more than doubled, increasing from, roughly, 1% million dollars
in 1931 to well over 3 million dollars in 1939. This increase is ex-
plained by the fact that the list of products taxed has been substanti-
ally enlarged and that the number of basic tax laws involved has also
risen from seven to nine during the period. The fact that this
agreement has functioned for such a long period of time without any
change whatsoever in the fundamental arrangement is evidence that
it is mutually beneficial. There follows a review of the outstanding
transactions pertaining to the year under report:
Collections.-As stated above, collections for 1939 exceeded the 3
million dollar mark, amounting to $3,333,161.75, to be exact. This
was nearly $91,000 less than in 1938. A drop of almost $108,000 in
revenue from the rice tax more than accounts for the total shrinkage.
In recent years the Government has encouraged local cultivation of
rice by various methods favorable to the home product at the expense
of the foreign. From year to year the quantity of rice imported has
decreased steadily until, in 1939, such imports totaled only some 512
metric tons, as compared with 6,688 in 1938, and 30,856, which figure
established a high record, in 1927. Another noteworthy decline was
in revenue from law 949 to which gasoline is the principal contributor,
the 1939 loss and 1938 gain-$17,708 and $17,972, respectively-
being practically equal.





REPORT DOMI2NIOAN CUSTrOLS RECEIVERS-HIP


To offset, in part, the gross decrease, there were increases in col-
lections under the heading of consular fees, document tax and law
854, application of tax for the first two being based entirely and the
last, in part, on values. The probable reasons for this better showing
are two: First, fewer false declarations by importers regarding the
value of merchandise imported; and second, cancelation of conces-
sions which previously exonerated some vessels from certain levies,
such as the consular tax on a ship's manifest. Revenue from the
flour tax was $13,628 greater than in 1938, attributable to increased
importation of 656 metric tons of this article.
Disbursements.-Payments to the Government, representing the
net balance of receipts after deduction of operation expenses,refunds,
and other authorized disbursements constitute the major item under
this heading. Such payments, which are made twice a week, totaled
$3,133,392.52 in 1939-of which $3,108,971.95 was for account of
collections, $632.87 interest on deposits, and unexpended portions of
the 4 percent allowed for operation amounting to $23,787.70-$11,-
398.29 from 1938 and $12,389.41 from 1939. Next in importance were
operation expenses of $112,804.35, which are treated at greater length
below. Refunds, or drawbacks, mostly because of revenue paid but
later exonerated, totaled $69,347.71. Finally, port launch expenses
amounted to $8,101.08.
Operation.-Expenses for this purpose aggregated $112,804.35, or
3.38 percent of total collections, which is less than the 4 percent
allowed per agreement and also less than the authorized budget of
$119,730. All of this sum was in payment of personal services,
except the minor items of $3,186.65 for printing and binding, and
$1,448.13 for travel expenses. After completing payments chargeable
to 1939 operation, there remained an unexpended balance of $20,940.65
in that account, which automatically passes to the Government. The
Government assigned $12,389.41 of these savings for use in the repair
and improvement of customs buildings pertaining to various ports.
The remainder-$8,551.24-was paid in April 1940, thereby closing
all 1939 operation transactions.
The several statements comprising appendix D offer more detailed
information regarding the internal revenue collections, disbursements,
and operation expenses treated above.

SUPERVISION OF THE RECEIVERSHIP
As of July 1, 1939, the Dominican Customs Receivership was
transferred, in accordance with President Roosevelt's reorganization
plan, from the Bureau of Insular Affairs, War Department, to the
Division of Territories and Island Possessions, Department of the
Interior. The transfer ended an association of 35 years, dating from
the establishment of the Receivership under the American-Dominican






REPORT DOMINIOAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Modus Vivendi of 1905. The arrangement, whereby supervision
of the Receivership was vested in the Bureau of Insular Affairs, War
Department, was subsequently confirmed under the Conventions of
1907 and 1924.
GENERAL RECEIVER RETIRES
In September 1939, General Receiver William E. Pulliam left
Santo Domingo, his retirement from the service being subsequently,
in December, announced at Washington.
It may be permitted to recall here the many years during which
General Receiver Pulliam directed the Dominican Customs Admin-
istration. Arriving originally in the Dominican Republic in 1907,
and serving until 1913, and returning in 1921 for a second tour of
duty which lasted until 1939, he devoted the best years of his life and
directed his best effort toward building up a technically competent
and efficient administration. Uniform policies consistently applied
by the Receivership over a period of years have been a stabilizing
factor in Dominican affairs, and, it seems fitting in this connection
to emphasize, here, the value of the individual contribution of General
Receiver Pulliam.
WAR IN EUROPE
War in Europe may be expected, ultimately, profoundly to affect
the Dominican trade situation. World price fluctuations, the shifting
of markets and sources of supply, the elimination of vessels from the
carrying trade-these and other factors will have their repercussions
here.
The immediate effects of the outbreak of war in September 1939,
however, as reflected in Dominican trade returns for the last 4 months
of the year, were of little significance. Santo Domingo's sugar crop,
which is by far the chief export item-accounting, in 1939, for almost
two-thirds of the export trade-had for the most part, already been
marketed at relatively satisfactory prices prior to September. Less
important than sugar in the total Dominican trade picture, but of
special interest as showing one direct result of the outbreak of war in
Europe, are the figures of starch exports. Of a total for the year of
11,472,935 kilos valued at $620,854, well over two-thirds, or 8,398,583
kilos valued at $484,409, were exported during September, October,
November-the 3 months immediately following the outbreak of
war.
It appears that the outbreak of hostilities served briefly to stimulate
the import trade. Local buyers in view of immediate uncertainties
and fearing the future, placed abroad, for the most part in the United
States of America, larger orders than is usual in the early autumn
months. This was reflected in the figure of imports for November
which, contrary to normal, exceeded the customarily high December





REPORT DOM.INIOAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


figure and was higher than for any comparable figure for November
in recent years.
DOMINICAN NEUTRALITY ENFORCEMENT
An emergency service rendered by the Receivership since the out-
break of war in Europe has been cooperation with the Dominican
Government authorities in enforcing the Dominican neutrality law.
In September, and again in October 1939, detailed instructions on
this subject were issued to all the ports. As a result, all members of
the customs service-and some of them operate in remote and inac-
cessible districts-are constantly on the lookout for violations of the
law, forwarding promptly to the Capital complete details regarding
the movements of vessels of belligerent countries entering Dominican
waters or touching at Dominican ports, and any information affecting
Santo Domingo's position as a neutral, which directly or indirectly
may reach them.
DOMINICAN-FRENCH TREATY SUSPENDED
As of December 15, 1939, the Dominican Government announced
its decision to suspend, temporarily, the provisional execution of the
Dominican-French Commercial Convention of September 4, 1936, on
the ground that difficulties arising out of the war in Europe made the
step necessary.
The Convention was entered into originally with a view to stimu-
lating the sale, in France, of certain Dominican agricultural products,
notably coffee, and of encouraging the purchase by Dominican im-
porters of a variety of French goods. Its suspension is of special
interest to American exporters, in that the preferential rates accorded
to French goods were automatically extended to similar American
products, by virtue of an agreement between the United States and
the Dominican Republic, dated September 25, 1924, according
mutual unconditional most-favored-nation treatment.
A detailed inquiry conducted by the Receivership into the trend
of Dominican trade with France and the United States over the 3-year
period during which the Convention was in force, indicates that the
instrument did not, perhaps, prove as effective a means of developing
a market for Dominican products as its sponsors may have hoped,
and that, on the other hand, by reason of the intergovernmental
agreement of September 25, 1924, cited above, American goods
benefited from application of the Convention to at least as great an
extent as did French goods.
Suspension of the treaty will, presumably, have the effect of halting
or reversing the trade trends which its application stimulated. It is
possible, however, that present difficulties in the way of trade with
Europe and, as a result of war conditions, the closing of certain






REPORT DOMINIOAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


European sources of supply, may prove a greater stimulus to American
export trade than would have proved the continued extension, under
normal conditions, of the benefits of the Dominican-French Com-
mercial Convention to certain American products. On the other
hand, suspension of the Convention will, presumably, have a favor-
able effect on Dominican Government finances in that, other things
being equal, it should tend to increase internal-revenue receipts.
"U. S. MARINE CORPS" AVENUE
A new thoroughfare, built up on land reclaimed from the harbor at
the mouth of the Ozama River and providing a new and needed link
between Ciudad Trujillo proper and the customs warehouses and docks,
was opened to traffic in 1939. The new avenue is named "U. S. Marine
Corps" in recognition of assistance rendered by United States marine
aviation units, which brought first aid to the stricken city at the time
of the 1930 hurricane. Formal inauguration of the artery took place,
with appropriate ceremonies, on February 13, 1939, in the presence of
high Dominican and American Government officials, including officers
of the U. S. S. Texas which was anchored in the harbor at the time,
and representatives of the United States Marine Corps.
OIL AT AZUA
The year under review saw the beginning of operations by the
Compafia Seaboard Dominicana de Petr6leo, C. por A. in the Azua
district, 121 kilometers (75 miles) from the Capital, on the southern
coast. The company, established under Dominican law, with head-
quarters at Ciudad Trujillo, is affiliated with the Seaboard Oil Co.
of Delaware.
Earlier exploration by other companies had established the presence
of oil in the Azua region, but attempts to place operations on a com-
mercially profitable basis had been abandoned.
On June 8, 1939, a group of 11 technical experts and workers of the
Seaboard Co. arrived in Azua from the United States, bringing with
them machinery and equipment to the value of some $217,000. Drill-
ing operations were begun as soon as possible, and within 2 months after
arrival, the first well, producing an average of 300 barrels a day, was
completed. Subsequent operations to the end of the year proved to
be inconclusive. Sufficient oil had been produced, however, at least
to meet current fuel requirements.
It is still too soon to attempt to estimate the extent to which this
enterprise may ultimately affect the economic life of the district and of
the country. It seems certain, however, that the arrival of the
American experts and workers, the setting up of machinery and
equipment, the employment of local labor, and consequent placing of
new money into circulation have already acted as a stimulus to local
business activity.






REPORT DOM1INIOAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


SAMANA-SANTIAGO RAILROAD
Immediately prior to the outbreak of hostilities in Europe, in late
August 1939, negotiations were completed for the purchase by the
Dominican Government, from British interests, of the Saman6-Santia-
ago Railroad. This enterprise, under the terms of a concession granted
in 1881, had for nearly 60 years been operating in the Cibao region
under British direction and control. Together with a section, already
owned by the Dominican Government, the system, comprising, in all,
some 240 kilometers (150 miles) of track, of which an 11-kilometer spur
is owned by private Dominican interests, is the only railroad operated
for the benefit of the public in Santo Domingo.
Serving for many years as the only means of land transportation
between the Cibao region, rich in cacao and other crops, and the
seaport of Sanchez, the British owned railroad is said at one time
to have been a very profitable investment. It is understood, how-
ever, that in recent years, it has suffered-as has happened in the
case of other railroads in other countries-from the competition of
motor transportation on newly developed highways.

TOURIST TRAFFIC
During recent years, Dominican authorities have directed effort
toward making the republic better known abroad, with a view to
attracting more tourists to the country. The value of the tourist
trade to Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and other neighboring islands, is
recognized, and Santo Domingo desires to increase its share of the
business.
In 1939, due, presumably, to unsettled business conditions during
the earlier months of the year, and, later, to uncertainties resulting
from the outbreak of hostilities in Europe, tourist travel to the
Dominican Republic was light. The total number of transient
visitors was 5,365 as compared with 6,584 during the previous year
and 8,628 in 1937. Of this number 3,150, or considerably more than
one-half, came from the United States. French and Cuban visitors
ranked next; numerically, in order of importance, accounting for
581 and 533, respectively, of the total. The peak of tourist travel in
1939 came in July, the explanation, presumably, being the summer
vacation period for business houses, schools and colleges in the
United States.
MIGRATION FROM EUROPE
Long before war was declared in Europe in 1939, there had become
evident a definite trend of European migration toward the Domini-
can Republic. In view of its subsequent expansion, special interest
attaches to the movement.
During 1938 the number of persons who arrived in the Dominican






REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


Republic from Europe, with a view to settling permanently, was
reported to be in the neighborhood of 100.
In 1939 the number of foreigners who obtained permits to reside
in the country totaled 1,226. Of these, 601 were Spaniards and 139
were Germans. The remainder represented a variety of countries of
origin, 211 being from the United States, Puerto Rico included.
Several hundred refugees who arrived from Spain toward the end of
the year are not included in the above total, many of them having
continued on their way to Cuba and Venezuela.
It is understood, at the time of writing, that additional shiploads
of refugees from Spain have arrived, and still others are expected to
arrive in the republic. Furthermore, a contract relating to Jewish
and non-Jewish immigration into the republic, signed by the Domini-
can Government and the Dominican Republic Settlement Associa-
tion, Inc., on January 30, 1940 (consideration of which does not,
properly, fall within the limits of this report), will, presumably, over
a period of years, bring an additional large number of persons into
the Dominican Republic.
No survey of the country today would be complete which failed
to take into account the economic, political, and social implications
of these growing Jewish and non-Jewish Spanish and Central Euro-
pean colonies in Santo Domingo.
SUMMARY OF COMMERCE

Complete details regarding Dominican imports and exports, in-
cluding quantities (where available), values and countries of origin
and destination, will be found in Appendix C of this Report. The
statistical tables have been prepared so as to afford comparison
between the two years 1939 and 1938.
FOREIGN TRADE
[Values are in United States currency]
A gradual rise in sugar prices which began prior to the outbreak
of war in Europe, at a time when the Dominican crop was being
marketed, was reflected in the relatively high value of total exports
for the year. Not since 1929 had the $18,643,302 export figure been
exceeded. Import values on the other hand, were relatively stable-
the total of $11,592,166 for the year being only slightly higher than
for 1938, and some $100,000 lower than in 1937. The trade position,
therefore, improved as compared with other recent years, the 1939
export balance of $7,051,136 being larger than in any year since 1924.
It is difficult to define accurately all of the items which go to make up
the balance of international payments. Annual interest and amorti-
zation payments on the foreign debt, however, amount only to
$1,099,040, and it seems reasonable to assume that other charges






REPORT DOMINION OTUSrOMS RECEIVERSHIP


would not reach a figure sufficiently large as to offset entirely the
substantial export balance. Generally speaking, it would seem that
wealth is being built up in the country, and that a healthy economic
situation prevails. This is reflected in the very large amount of new
construction, both public and private, which is so striking a feature
of present day Santo Domingo.

crease, by year, for the 5-year period 1935-39, are shown below:

The United States in 1939 was once again the chief source of
supply of Dominican imports, substantially increasing its share of
this trade as compared with the previous year and accounting for
59 percent of the total. In 1938 the United States supplied 54 per-
cent of total imports. Sales by Japan, chiefly of cotton textiles and
manufactures, although showing a slight decline as compared with
1938, once again figured largely in the import trade. As a result,
Japan ranked next to the United States as a source of supply. Ger-
many ranked third. Where values are concerned, however, caution
must be used in appraising results of trade with Germany in 1938
and 1939 since transactions were conducted strictly on a barter basis.
On the import side, the tendency, in general, was for importers to
undervalue, and certain relatively large increases in the value of im-
ports from Germany, in 1939 as compared with 1938, notably in the
case of cement (see table below) are explained, at least in part, by
upward revision of declared values by the Dominican customs au-
thorities.
The United Kingdom, the United States and France in 1939, as in
1938, ranked in the order named, as the chief markets for Dominican
products. The United Kingdom's purchases were almost exclusively
of sugar, this product accounting for $6,688,722 of total Dominican
sales to the United Kingdom of $6,774,599. France in addition to
$1,628,359 of sugar, purchased $531,888 of coffee, the two products
combined, accounting for $2,160,247 out of total French purchases of
$2,219,208. United States purchases were well diversified. It may
be in order, however, to single out for special mention United States







REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


purchases of starch, treated in some detail elsewhere in this report,
which, in 1939 amounted to $616,430 as compared with $63,724 in
1938.
There was noteworthy expansion in 1939 in the sale of Dominican
products, notably corn and cattle, to countries in the Caribbean area.
Important among the factors contributing to this development was
the regular schedule of sailings maintained by the "Naviera Domini-
cana," a shipping line owned and operated by Dominican interests,
establishment of which was reported last year.
The following tables show total values of imports and exports, by
countries, for 1939 and 1938, with corresponding percentages of the

MAJOR IMPORTS

The 10 major items which entered into Dominican import trade
during 1939 have been selected for special consideration. Two items,

i. e. cement, and rubber and manufactures of rubber, figured for the
first time among the ten principal imports. The details follow,
tabulated in order of importance, with brief comment in each case:
1. Cotton and manufactures of cotton, which are by far the chief
item in Dominican import trade, normally account for approximately
one-fifth of the total. Nineteen hundred and thirty-nine was no
exception to the rule, imports under this heading amounting to

Japan furnished $989,296, or 45 percent of cotton textile imports.
The United States furnished only 40 percent, but sales, amounting to
$901,490, represented a substantial improvement over the results of
the previous year. Examination of the figures for the past 4 years
shows that gradually, since 1936, the United States has made steady
annual progress in regaining the lead as 'a supplier of cotton textiles
to the Dominican Republic which, in 1935, was wrested away from
it by Japan. The value of cotton goods imported into the Dominican
Republic during 1938 and 1939, by countries, is shown below:

The United States, in 1939 again supplied by far the major part of
Dominican imports of machinery and apparatus, substantially in-

4. Jute bags, in 1939, once again figured prominently in the list of
Dominican imports. These bags are used as containers for shipments
of Santo Domingo's sugar, cacao, and coffee crops. There was, how-

British India is usually the chief source of supply for jute bags used
by Dominican industrial and agricultural interests. In 1939, how-
ever, there was a shift in the direction of this trade, the number and
value of jute bags imported from British India showing a substantial
decline as compared with 1938, while the United States materially
increased its share of the trade:

5. Paper and paper manufactures.-There was a decline in 1939 in
the value of imports under this heading which includes wrapping
paper, writing and printing paper, blank books, playing cards and
cardboard boxes. The amount, however, was still large enough to
account for retention by this item of fifth place in the total import
trade. The following table shows the value of imports of paper and

The Dutch West Indies and the United States monopolized this
trade in 1939. Prior to 1937 the Dutch West Indies normally was the
chief source of supply for gasoline imported into Santo Domingo. In
1937 the United States took the lead but lost it again in 1938, and in
1939 the Dutch West Indies retained its place as principal supplier.
Examination of the detailed figures of volume and value show that the
United States generally supplies the Dominican Republic with a larger
amount of gasoline but that the price is lower:

portance among Dominican imports. The figures, covering a period

The United States in 1939 still further strengthened its position as
a supplier of structural material to Santo Domingo, while higher
prices enabled Belgium to hold its share of the trade. France sold a
slightly larger amount for a somewhat smaller sum, while Germany lost

8. Cement.-In 1939, cement, for the first time ranked among the
10 principal Dominican imports. Higher prices account for this
development-the larger amount of cement imported in 1937, for
instance, having been valued at a very much lower figure. The volume
and value of cement imports over a 5-year period (1935-39) are shown

Germany was the principal supplier of cement to Santo Domingo
in 1939. Special interest attaches to the figures of the volume and
value of German cement imports. During recent years trade with
Germany has been conducted on a barter basis and a number of terms
other than the official Reichsmark have been used in connection
with German costs and prices. As a result it has, at times, been diffi-
cult to establish the values of German goods as prescribed by law for
customs purposes. In many cases, after detailed and lengthy inquiry,
it has been necessary to effect substantial upward revision of the
values originally declared. This process, which has obviously tended
to increase customs revenue, is reflected in the figures of cement im-
ports from Germany in 1939 and 1938, included in the following table:

9. Automobiles (passenger).-There was again in 1939, as in 1938, a
decline in the number of motor vehicles for passengers imported into
the Dominican Republic as compared with the previous year. Auto-
mobiles are, however, still numbered among the chief imports into
Santo Domingo. The figures covering the 5-year period (1935-39)

The expansion of imports of "Opel" cars, manufactured by the
General Motors Corporation in Germany, during the years 1937 and
1938, was a feature of Dominican trade. As in the case of German
cement, described under item No. 8 above, it has been necessary to
revise upward the declared values of automobiles imported from
Germany, and this process is reflected in the figures for 1939 as
compared with 1938, detailed below:

Motortrucks are not included in the foregoing tabulations. In
addition to the passenger automobile imports (which include omni-
buses) there was imported in 1939 a total of 185 trucks valued at
$143,691, as compared with 195 trucks valued at $148,366 in 1938.
10. Rubber and manufactures of rubber.-Steady expansion of im-
ports of rubber and its manufactures, reflects the development of
motor transportation in the Dominican Republic. In 1939, for the
first time, this item which is made up, in large part, of automobile
and truck tires, figures in the list of principal Dominican imports.

The 10 items listed above accounted, in 1939, for 53 percent of
total Dominican imports. Certain other items which figure promi-
nently in the trade, and next in order of importance on the value
basis, were silk and manufactures of silk valued at $211,000; hides and
skins valued at $210,000; wheat flour valued at $193,000; codfish
and other fish, salted and dry, valued at $161,000; confectionery
valued at $155,000, and barbed and plain wire valued at $153,000.
No other item imported in 1939 amounted to as much as $150,000.
Detailed tables designed to supply complete statistical information
relative to various aspects of Dominican import trade, including com-
parative tables of 1938 importations, are presented in schedules 1 to 6
inclusive, of appendix C of this report.
MAJOR EXPORTS
Ten commodities accounted for 95 percent of the total value of
Dominican exports in 1939. As was done in the case of imports,
these 10 principal export items have been listed, in order of importance
on the basis of value, with supporting statistical tables:
1. Sugar, raw, in 1939, made up 63 percent of the total value of
Dominican exports. The quantity shipped abroad during the year
increased only slightly by comparison with the previous year-from
403,537 metric tons in 1938 to 407,370 metric tons in 1939. There
was a substantial rise in value, however, from $8,592,050 to $11,803,-
568, the latter figure being the highest total value recorded for Domini-
can sugar exports since 1929. It should be noted in this connection
that the erratic movement of sugar prices which immediately followed
the outbreak of war in Europe in September 1939, is not reflected in
the valuation of total Dominican sugar exports for the year. The
local crop had all been marketed prior to September. Prices were
firm, however, with a tendency to rise, during the January-August
period-the average price, f. o. b., Dominican ports having been $1.27
per 100 pounds, as compared with $1 in 1938 and $1.12 in 1937. The

France and Morocco in 1939 took a substantially greater amount of
Dominican sugar than during 1938, the value received therefore being,
as a result of rising prices, also well in excess of the previous year's
figure. The United Kingdom purchased a smaller amount of Domini-
can sugar than in 1938, but paid considerably more therefore, remain-
ing, by a very large margin, Santo Domingo's best customer for the
product. Sugar exports, by countries, in 1939 as compared with 1938,

2. Cacao, crude, in 1939, retained its customary place as second in
importance among Dominican exports. Shipments valued at $2,014,-
475 accounted for 11 percent of the total export trade. The crop was
somewhat smaller than in 1938, but slightly better prices prevailed,
with the result that the monetary return was greater than in the pre-

3. Cofee is one of Santo Domingo's chief export crops. The
quantity shipped abroad, while fluctuating from year to year, has
shown a steady long-term increase, the annual average for the 5-year
period (1935-39) being 11,220,060 kilos, as compared with 7,547,951
kilos for the 1930-34 period. Coffee prices, however, have during
recent years fallen to extremely low levels, the value of $1,730,508
received for the 14,126,606 kilos exported in 1939 being almost three-
quarters of a million dollars less than the amount received for the

France increased its purchases of Dominican coffee in 1939, as com-
pared with 1938, retaining its place as the country's best customer.
French purchases were, however, very much smaller both in quantity
and value than they were in either 1936 or 1937. The Netherlands
substantially increased its purchases of Dominican coffee in 1939,
replacing the United States as Santo Domingo's second best customer
for the commodity. Of interest, in this connection, is the fact that
the United States actually took a slightly greater amount of Domini-
can coffee in 1939 than did the Netherlands, but paid less therefore.

1939, this commodity moving up to fourth place among Dominican
exports and accounting for 3 percent of the total export trade. The

The Netherlands, in 1939, was Santo Domingo's best customer for
tobacco leaf, while Germany ranked second. These two countries,
between them, took 70 percent of the total amount exported. Details

of Santo Domingo. Of the total amount shipped abroad during the
year, placer gold accounted for 251 kilos valued at $220,630, and old
gold recovered from jewelry accounted for 67 kilos valued at $32,994.

7. Corn, among Santo Domingo's minor crops, is important in that
a ready market for it is found in the surrounding Caribbean area.
Officially encouraged through exemption of port duties, financed
locally and, as explained under the heading "Foreign trade" above and
"Carrying trade" below, now enjoying new facilities for transportation
in Dominican vessels, the export of corn can apparently be relied upon
to produce a steady, even though relatively small, return. Compara-
tive figures of corn exports, over a period of the last 5 years, are
given below:

There was a shift in the direction of Dominican corn exports in
1939, Venezuela for the first time appearing in and heading the list of
customers. With purchases of $100,206, or 40 percent of the total,
Venezuela in 1939 took Puerto Rico's place as the chief purchaser of
Dominican corn. Details of the trade, by countries, follow:

8. Molasses.-A relatively stable level has been maintained during
recent years in the volume of Dominican molasses exports. There
has, however, been a drastic decline in prices. In 1939, for example,
an amount of 95,460,805 kilos exported was valued at $241,665. An
amount only slightly larger, exported in 1935, was valued at $831,632,

.9. Cattle are becoming an increasingly important item in Dominican
export trade. As in the case of corn, referred to above, special
interest attaches in Santo Domingo to cattle raising and exporting,
in that the business is financed locally and production is marketed in
the Caribbean area. An all-time record for Dominican cattle exports
was established in 1939 both as to quantity and value-9,791 heads
valued at $204,965 having been shipped abroad. The following
table shows the number and value of cattle exported annually during
recent years:

10. Bananas.-The phenomenal expansion of Dominican banana
cultivation and export during the past 4 years has been the subject
of special comment in several previous reports. Formerly the United
Fruit Co. owned and operated plantations in Santo Domingo, but its
activities were discontinued many years ago. The present growth of
the business is the direct result of initiative taken only 4 or 5 years
ago by the Dominican Government to encourage cultivation among






REPORT DOMINTIGOA CUSTOM S RECEIVERSHIP


small farmers. From a beginning of 3,227 stems valued at $967 sold
abroad in 1936, the banana export business has grown to a point
where, in 1939, 824,463 stems valued at $190,681 were shipped. It
is of interest to note, in passing, that a smaller amount of 668,000
stems exported by the United Fruit Co. in 1906 was valued at $334,000.
Banana exports, by years, over a period of the past 5 years are given

Between the tenth item in the above list of the more important
Dominican exports, namely bananas, exported to a value of $190,681,
and the next largest item in the trade on the basis of value, there is a
sharp drop to $87,943 for cane syrup exports. Other Dominican
products sold abroad in relatively large quantities included, in the
following order, refined sugar, beeswax, animals (exclusive of cattle),
hides of cattle, goatskins and lignum vitae.
Tables giving complete details concerning Dominican exports in
1939 and 1938 will be found in schedules 7 to 13, appendix C of this
report.
CARRYING TRADE

Notwithstanding disruption, as a result of war conditions in Europe,
of certain sea transport services, in the latter months of 1939, freight
and passenger traffic between Santo Domingo and other countries
was maintained on a more or less normal basis throughout the year.
Pan American Airways, whose Dominican terminal is at San
Pedro de Macoris, some 50 miles from Ciudad Trujillo, continued in
1939 to offer transportation facilities between Santo Domingo and
other countries. Regular schedules are maintained, with sailings
to the North and South American continents, four or five times weekly.

Arrivals.-There was a decline in the value of merchandise imported
into the Dominican Republic in vessels of American registry in 1939.
American ships, however, still carried 47 percent of the total. Nor-
wegian vessels were next in order of importance, accounting for 33
percent of the total. The value of merchandise imported in vessels
of Norwegian registry increased from $875,407 in 1938 to $3,769,184
in 1939, Norway in 1939, thus taking the place which Germany had
held in 1938, as the second most important carrier of Dominican
import trade. German ships in 1939, however, still carried 9 percent
of total Dominican imports, as compared with the 10 percent carried
in 1938. For further and complete details regarding this aspect of
Dominican import trade, attention is invited to schedule 2, appendix
C of this report-"Recapitulation of imports."
Departures.-British ships carried 41 percent of total Dominican
exports in 1939, the United Kingdom being, as usual, the principal
purchaser of Dominican raw sugar. The total value of Dominican
products shipped abroad in British bottoms in 1939, was $7,731,686,
as compared with $4,327,814 in 1938. There was a marked increase
in the value of goods transported in Norwegian vessels in 1939, as
compared with 1938, Norway forging ahead of the United States,
and accounting for 17 percent of the total, while the United States
held third place with 11 percent. Attention is invited, in this con-
nection, to schedule 8, appendix C, "Recapitulation of exports," an
analysis of this trade by countries and nationality of vessels.
Tonnage movement (foreign).-The volume of Dominican exports
increased in 1939 by 7,756 tons, as compared with 1938, while the
volume of imports declined by 4,097 tons, the results indicating that
the improved trade position, analyzed in a previous section of this
report, was not due solely to rising prices. The following table shows
tonnage movements for 1939 as compared with 1938:

REPORT DOMINICAN CUSTOMS RECEIVERSHIP


There was a very slight increase in 1939, as compared with the
previous year, in the import tonnage carried by vessels of the United
States, the increase in the case of vessels of other neutral countries,
notably Norway, being more marked. As was to be expected there
was a decline in the import tonnage carried by vessels of the belliger-
ents. (See schedule 14, appendix C, for complete details.)
On the export side, there was a decrease in the tonnage carried in
German vessels, but an increase in export tonnage carried in French
and English vessels. Of interest, locally, was the expansion in 1939,
of tonnage carried by Dominican vessels. With the establishment in
1938 of the "Naviera Dominicana" which now maintains regular
freight and passenger services between Santo Domingo and other ports
in the Caribbean area, notably Curagao and Martinique, the Domini-
can Republic substantially increased its capacity for carrying its own
trade. In 1939, 19,936 tons of Dominican exports were carried in
Dominican bottoms, as compared with 6,690 tons in 1938, and 936
tons of import cargoes, as compared with 376 tons in 1938. In other
words, Dominican vessels in 1939 carried, roughly, three times as
much freight as in 1938. For detailed analysis of export cargo ton-
nage, attention is invited to schedule 14-A, appendix C.
CONCLUSION
Out of the material presented in the foregoing pages, certain facts
bear repetition, in summing up, by way of emphasis:
Collections by the Receivership in 1939, both on account of customs
duties and of the so-called internal revenue taxes, remained at a
satisfactory level. There was a slight decline as compared with 1938 on
the internal revenue account, but customs collections of $3,031,455.64
were, with one exception (1934), higher than in any previous year
since 1930, when the "Internal revenue" laws were enacted. There
was, therefore, an ample margin of safety for the $1,099,040 annual
service of the external loans, out of customs collections.
Actual results of foreign trade for 1939 were, on the whole, also
satisfactory. The sugar crop commanded fair prices in the world
market, with the result that exports, valued at $18,643,302 were the
highest since 1929. The export balance of $7,051,136 was the highest
since 1924.
Looking ahead-although the process is a dangerous one-it should
be recalled that 1939 witnessed the outbreak of war in Europe. The
year will, therefore, if hostilities are prolonged, presumably mark the
beginning of a period of transition in the trend of Dominican trade.
Although up to the end of the year, with the exception of a marked
increase in starch exports, no significant changes, directly attributable
to the war, had occurred in the amount of Dominican commercial
exchanges, nor in general business conditions within the Republic,
257020-40--3

it may be assumed that, in the course of time, repercussions arising
out of dislocations and readjustments abroad will, increasingly, make
themselves felt here. It may be suggested, however, that Santo
Domingo, being a producer, primarily, of sugar, cacao, coffee and
their agricultural products, will continue, even in war time, to find
purchasers for its crops, and that out of the proceeds of these sales,
the country will satisfy its import requirements by purchasing manu-
factured goods where these are most readily obtainable. Presumably,
this will mean a trend towards increased imports from nearer neutral
markets.
Respectfully submitted.
