dc.description.abstract Antigua and Barbuda’s Minister of Finance Molwyn Joseph calls for urgent meeting of heads of government of the OECS to discuss the economic fallout should the preferential treatment given to Caribbean bananas get lost in a single European market. Dominica’s Prime Minister Dame Eugenia Charles continues her tour of Europe intensely lobbying to retain special treatment for Caribbean bananas. Although the Barbados sugar industry dispute is almost settled, unrest lurks among the hotel industry workers following the dismissal of a worker at the Sam Lord’s Castle. Jamaica’s sugar workers union voice their willingness to lower demands in their negotiations for wage increases according to the impact of demands on the country’s sugar producers. West Indian Cricket enthusiasts voice disappointment in the performance of the West Indies team in its defeat by South Africa. The West Indian Commission headed by Sir Shridath Ramphal during its visit to Puerto Rico explores future investments with CARICOM. Deputy Secretary General of the London based Commonwealth Secretariat, Sir Anthony Siaguru leads a senior team to Guyana to oversee preparations for the general elections. en_US
