dc.description.abstract There are moves in the US Congress to present a Caribbean Basin Initiative Enhancement Bill. Pat Thompson - CDB - Executive Director, Caribbean Association of Industry and Commerce in an interview with correspondent Yvette Rowe says that the Bill can help CARICOM countries with the initial effects of the NAFTA Agreement. Thousands of people demonstrated in Puerto Rico to save the 936 Programme which has provided millions of investment dollars to Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, Dominica and other Caribbean states. However, President Bill Clinton’s wants to trim the 936 tax exemption benefits for US countries investing in the Caribbean and thus save his administration 7billion dollars- the Puerto Rican government is split on the issue. Correspondent Debbie Ransome reports. A conference chaired by Dutch Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers on the future of the Netherlands Antilles opened in Curacao to discuss more autonomy within the Kingdom of the Netherlands - correspondent Eddie Williams reports. Pro self determination activists - The United St. Maarten Organization, in St. Maarten- Phillipsburg have blocked roads into the main town, denying access to the port area, local power and water plants, schools and government services are also closed in the protest over the dissolution of the current Dutch St. Maarten government – correspondent Geraldine Conklin reports. Expectations of general elections in late March or early April are in the air in Jamaica. Prime Minister PJ Paterson is expected to announce the date at a rally - he feels that the PNP has a good chance of success due to the latest polls. Correspondent Gary Allen reports from the public statements of Prime Minister Patterson and opposition leader Edward Seaga. The Guyanese government has ordered a timber company to stop its destruction of Jones Town – founded by David Koresh leader of a Branch Davidian religious sect aka Jim Jones who developed a British and Caribbean cult following – correspondent Yvette Rowe. en_US
