dc.description.abstract The latest comprehensive report on the international impact of AIDs was published by the Global Aids Policy Coalition at Harvard University. The report provides information on the trend that the virus is taking on all parts of the world, as well as future projected statistics. The Caribbean region is mentioned as one of the latest areas at risk from AIDS with some of the highest recorded rates – with a rapid increase among women. Correspondent Charlotte Fadipe reports on the findings of Dr. Jonathan Mann’s research - which states that heterosexual transmission is the major way in which AIDS is spread in the Caribbean and just under a third was caused by homosexuality and drug users five years ago. Jamaica’s Foreign and Trade Minister – David Core says that the Caribbean should continue to pursue its plans to improve its trade relations with Cuba without fear of American disapproval. Correspondent Debbie Ransome reports on the sentiments of Sen. Core who was in Havana to sign trade, tourism and drug trafficking agreements. Journalist Lionel Martin told correspondent Mike Jarvis that while the Cuban Government is sensitive towards relations between the Caribbean and the US, Havana believes there is room for improved relations without incurring the wrath of Washington. In Washington, Cuban American Lawyer - Mariel Baisa is reportedly falling behind in the nomination battle for one of Clinton’s Senior Regional post - Mr. Baisa was originally tipped to be the new Assistant Secretary of State for Latin American Affairs. However his nomination has been opposed by the powerful Miami based Cuban American National Foundation on the grounds that he may seek to negotiate with the Castro administration. A British Social Trends Survey report was published, correspondent - Mike Jarvis interviews the survey’s publication editor - Phil Rose who comments on the findings of the survey which reflects Britain as becoming an increasingly highly multiracial society. The survey also highlights the Caribbean population in Britain as having a very high rate of unemployment, incarceration, and births to unwed mothers. Petrol was once again on stream in Guadeloupe following a protest by local artisans, which was followed by a water protest. This industrial action seems to have been part of a build up to the country’s upcoming Regional Council Elections. The military intervened and brought the industrial action to an end. The Bahamian Government has designated 1993 the year of Tourism, and Prime Minister Hubert Alexander Ingraham has called for a rejuvenation of the island’s Tourism industry which has been in a slump for over two years. Declining tourism revenues has greatly affected hoteliers and contributed to unemployment in the hotel industry.In an interview with correspondent Vicki Ainsworth-Robert Sands and Bahamian Minister of Tourism - Brent Symonette noted some of the various contributing factors for the slump in the tourism industry and the strategies they plan to implement to revitalize the industry. The London Times included a note on Barbados’s change of beach vending arrangements,in an attempt to rescue sun bathers who are tired of dodging beach peddlers. The National Conservation Commission plans to set up kiosks to accommodate these beach salesmen. en_US
