dc.description.abstract The United States has changed its attitude towards Haiti regarding the trade embargo and is now willing to grant licenses to individual companies on a case by case basis. The Bush administration is criticised for this change of heart. The first batch of Haitian refugees is repatriated from Guantanamo Bay and conditions in the Haitian countryside on the return of the refugees are reported on; Jamaica wants a meeting for a special discussion on the plight of Haitian refugees. Dominica's Prime Minister, Dame Eugenia Charles re-confirms her decision to attend the ACP/EC General Assembly in Santo Domingo, rather than the Caricom leaders intercessional meeting in Jamaica; she is interviewed on what she hopes to achieve in Santo-Domingo. Concern is expressed for the Windward Islands banana industry especially in light of a recently published report by CTA Economic and Exports Analysts Ltd., which was commissioned by the Caribbean Banana Exporters Association (CBEA). The report confirms that the industry will be wiped out by a massive fall in prices if Windward Island producers were to loose their protective market, and Claire Wenner lobbyist on behalf of CBEA is interviewed. The final segment reports on the monetary grant which the Brtish parliament aproves for the Caribbean Development Bank. en_US
