Description and results


The Revenue Generation project supports the Haitian government's ability to generate fiscal revenue. It provides technical assistance to improve the customs and tax institutions in Haiti. The technical assistance and equipment provided by this project help to modernize the Customs Administration and the Tax Administration, enabling an increase in government revenues. The project is implemented by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), which supports the Haitian Customs Administration, and by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), which supports the Haitian Tax Administration. This project has been separated in two components, technical assistance and equipment procurement, for administrative reasons.
