dc.description Includes musical interlude at the beginning of the report and the final segment ends abruptly. en_US
dc.description.abstract The program focuses on the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between Jamaica and Cuba despite fierce criticism from Caribbean nations. Secondly, a report of the Dominican Republic’s economic structure in 1989 highlights the plight of the Caribbean countries as to why they did not heed the warning signs of the Republic’s intentions to export bananas to Europe. Following the Financial News, the report provides an update on the affairs in Haiti after the 10 day siege and as the Haitians prepare for Carnival. The report concludes with the concerns of Government ministers in Guyana on the United States reduction in funding and in attempts by Canada to meet with other donor countries to assist in buffering the impact of the American decision. en_US
