dc.description.abstract In this report, Trinidad divests its national airline, BWIA, with the new majority shareholder being the American Acker Group of Companies. Mr. Edward Acker, Head of the Group, is very optimistic about the future of BWIA. Tony Fraser is interviewed on the concerns of the loss of BWIA as a regional symbol and an airline that looks after regional interests. Two citizens have begun legal action seeking more details on the airline divestment. The World Trade Organization (WTO) comes into force replacing the GATT. Michael Pryce reports that the WTO will have more extensive powers to resolve its members' trade disputes. International Trade Consultant, Henry Gill, stated that Caribbean countries should improve diplomatic representation in Geneva in order to deal with the complex range of trade issues. Ian Fairley reports on the failure of the Dominican Republic to qualify as a founding member of the WTO. In Jamaica, Prime Minister P.J. Patterson is expected to reshuffle his Cabinet. en_US
