Bank of the Republic of Haiti


Bank of the Republic of Haiti

The Bank of the Republic of Haiti ( _fr. Banque de la République d'Haïti, (BRH) is the central bank of Haiti.

History

The Haiti national bank was founded after the independence of Haiti from France. The oldest reference to a bank in Haiti can be attributed to a short correspondence exchanged during September 1825 between a foreign tradesman, Nicholas Kane, the Secretary of State Balthazar Inginac about a proposal made by George Clark in the name of a German group, Hermann Hendrick and Co., to establish a bank in Haiti. However, the proposal was never accepted, and Hermann Hendrick and Co. was never established.
