dc.description.abstract In this Caribbean Report: Antigua's Prime Minister Lester Bird has indicated that he would be sticking to his financial tax plans despite the Opposition threat to call a general strike. Hugh Crosskill reports on an editorial in the prestigious Financial Times (FT) which states the European Union has gone bananas. In a published response, Bernard Cornibert, Managing Director of the Windward Island Banana Development and Exporting Company (WIBDECO), pointed out that ACP countries need trade not aid or handouts. In Brussels, Clifford Smith reports on negotiations to liberalize the European market for imported rum from the ACP group of countries. However, concerns have been raised by the French in the name of protecting their production of traditional dark rum. In Haiti, the government is calling on the international community for the speedy delivery of the promised aid package. Phillip Wearne interviews Chavannes Jean-Baptiste, leader of the largest peasant organization in Haiti, on the US strategy as Haiti is now a battlefield to two diametrically opposed models of development - one Haitian, the other American. Sarah Clark, Deputy Director of USAID in Haiti, is questioned on whether the ordinary Haitian should be very nervous about the intended structural adjustment plan, given the devastating social impacts on other Caribbean countries. And finally, John Paul Getty II, a reclusive billionaire has married his companion of twenty years, Victoria Holdsworth on December 29th in a secret ceremony in Barbados. en_US
