dc.description.abstract The program features the major row between the Dominican Republic and Caricom countries over the former’s decision to export bananas to the European community, a contravention of an agreement with Caricom. Following the Financial Market news, Rev. Jessie Jackson condemns the move by the United States to cut back on aid levels to the Caribbean countries. The next segment addresses the announcement by Desi Bouterse, Surinam’s army commander to give up his role as a mediator in the country’s peace talks. The program concludes with the upcoming meeting in Brussels between the members of the European Commission and the representatives of the current European colonies in the Caribbean to discuss concerns over the role of the colonies with the introduction of the single market in Europe. en_US
