dc.description.abstract Guyana’s privatization programme is to be made public at the end of this month. Correspondent Debbie Ransome interviews Finance Minister Asgar Ali in London, who explains government’s financial plans, process and financial relations with other CARICOM countries. Former British Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath called on the US government to end its economic blockade against Cuba speaking at a Euro Money Seminar in London – entitled - “Investment in Cuba.” He said that with the collapse of the Soviet empire that hostility is no longer valid. American Kriby Jones – Chairman of the Euro Money Seminar, in an interview with correspondent Hugh Croskell explains the growing pressure on the US and the Clinton administration to relax the economic blockade on Cuba. The Chief of Trinidad and Tobago’s Defense Force – Brigadier General Ralph Brown said that his unit is prepared to be part of any peace keeping mission to Haiti. US Atlantic Deputy Commander Raymund E. O'Mara told the region’s military chief’s at a Conference of the Region Security Chiefs that they must be prepared to assist Haiti if the situation there deteriorates – correspondent Tony Fraser reports. The government of the Bahamas continues to defend its policy of repatriating Haitians despite fears of persecution by the army. In an interview with correspondent Mike Jarvis - Speaker of the Bahamas Parliament - Vernon Symonette says the policy has to be pursued because the country cannot cope with the strain on the country’s economy’s resources from 40, 000 illegal Haitians already there. en_US
