dc.description.abstract In a special address to the Haitian people - American President elect Bill Clinton appealed to Haitians not to travel to the US to seek refugee status. In an effort to restore democracy, improve Human Rights and discourage an exodus of Boat departures to the US – Clinton promised the Haitian people an upgrade and fair processing of refugee applications at the US embassy in Haiti. A similar appeal was made by Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide - correspondent Michael Norton reports and Mike Jarvis interviews Haiti’s US Ambassador Jean Casimir on his views about the matter.

Nationwide panic caused schools and business places to close early. Prime Minister PJ Patterson called for a state of clam in light of the fact that there was relatively minimal damage - correspondent Gary Allen in Kingston reports via telephone.

Sir Nicholls stated that the tourism sector is targeted for the most potential growth, though it is still not guaranteed. He suggests that the region’s governments and private sector should consider lower levels of salaries and benefits versus high unemployment levels.
