dc.description.abstract The United States President has promised Caribbean Heads of Government that he will seek swift congressional approval of a Caribbean Basin Trade Enhancement Act. It is widely accepted in the Caribbean that President Clinton’s visit was a historic one, however, the views from the United States is much less flattering. The American Times found the conference in the Caribbean comical. Next, the United States President and the Caribbean leaders signed an agreement to cooperate in fighting the drug trade. The London Guardian reports that while the United States is keeping a close eye on drug trafficking in the bigger Caribbean Islands, South American cocaine barons have increasing influence in the region’s smaller states. Next Guyana’s Elections Commission has been considering the adoption of a code of conduct and stricter regulation of the parties hoping to contest the election. Also, Guyana’s Parliament has approved the controversial change of name of the national airport from Timehri to Dr Cheddi International Airport. Next, a report by the U.S. Human Rights Watch is recommending tougher laws to deal with racism and racial attacks in Britain. The report says racially motivated attacks in Britain have increased three fold over the past decade and the Labour government says that legislative changes are being considered as corrective measures and Labour would be tough on racism. Next, President Bill Clinton is due to apologise to survivors of a federal experiment in Alabama looking at the effects of syphilis on black men. The study which began in 1932 monitored the effects of untreated syphilis on black men living in Tuskegee. Finally, an Australian marathon swimmer completed a historic swim across the Florida Straits. en_US
