Last July the first U.S. AID man in eight years arrived on the island, and both the World Bank and International Monetary Fund are sending a study team. Carlos Sanz de Santamaria, chairman of the Inter-American Committee on the Alliance for Progress, has pronounced himself "well impressed" by changes in Haiti. The Inter-American Development Bank will shortly announce a $3.2 million loan for agricultural and industrial development on the island, and $500,000 in grants for roads and hospitals. As a well-connected Haitian put it last week: "The cash potential that is available will have a miraculous influence on the politicians. Mon Dien! The last thing this government wants is a march double time back into the past."
