dc.description.abstract The European Union again defends its banana regime against US opposition. Sir Leon Brittan, EU External Relations Commissioner has indicated that the dispute between the EU and the US about the European banana imports has not been resolved. Cuba steps up its efforts to attract investments from Britain. In London, Cuba's Finance Minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez spoke about Cuba's programme of economic reforms and its desire for joint venture investments. British businessmen were upbeat and positive about investing in Cuba. Mr. Rodriguez was questioned on his government's self-imposed structural adjustment programme and whether NAFTA was the way to go. The UN Security Council has voted to send a peacekeeping force to Haiti by the end of March to take over from the US-led force. Grenada's Prime Minister Nicholas Brathwaite retires from politics. Mr. Brathwaite was asked if he had any regrets, what was his greatest achievement and what the future holds for him now. en_US
