dc.description.abstract Caribbean Communities Ambassadors in Washington have raised concerns about the new immigration laws in the United States. Next, Japan says that the Cuban Foreign Minister is to visit Tokyo later this year and the hostage issue in Peru maybe discussed during the visit. Next, an earthquake measuring 5.6 on the Richter scale was felt in several regional states including Tobago, St Vincent and Guyana. In the following, St Lucia’s Prime Minister along with his Caricom colleagues have lobbied hard for the future of Caribbean bananas. They fear that the eroding of preferential market taxes could mean drastic results for banana republics with little alternatives. Next, the place of the Caribbean in world tourism is among the subjects to be addressed at a major conference on tourism in the Caribbean which will be held in Nassau, Bahamas. Addressing the conference are the prime ministers of Jamaica, Barbados, Jamaica and St Kitts/Nevis. Finally, the coach of the Jamaican football team has strongly defended its players who were involved in a pitch battle on the field with players from the Mexican Club, Toros Neza in Mexico. en_US
