dc.description.abstract Trade Unions leaders in Trinidad and Tobago have postponed the decision to call a national strike over the recent devaluation of the TandT currency - correspondent Mike Jarvis reports – Roland Graham, President of the Public Service Trade Union explains the trade union’s concerns and position on the matter. West Indies Captain Richie Richardson says that he would have been extremely disappointed if the touring Pakistani cricket team had carried out a threat to cancel the current tour. The threat arose over drug possession charges in Grenada towards four members of the touring team, which were subsequently dropped. Umpire Dickie Bird in an interview with Mike Jarvis, says that unofficially the current series sends a clear signal as to which team is the best – that the West Indies and Pakistan team are the best. The Jamaican Prime Minister – PJ Patterson has appointed 22 more members to his administration bringing the total number to 39. The increased number is likely to result in more criticism from political analyst - who have been arguing for a smaller, more streamlined government - correspondent Gary Allen reports. International experts are warning Caribbean manufacturers that it may be more difficult to gain access American markets in the future despite the efforts of some US congressmen and the NAFTA between the USA, Canada and Mexico - correspondent Mike Jarvis interviews John Carverna, Institute of Quality Studies – Washington DC on his views of the impact and possible negative side effects of these trade negotiation agreements on Caribbean trade. Cuba tries to attract foreign investors to help revitalize the economy, the health care system is now badly fraying as modern drugs become scarce on the brink of collapse and they are resorting to herbal medicine, being blamed on Fidel Castro’s defiant stance against the US embargo - Charles Scanlon reports from Havana, Cuba. Negotiations continue to try to end the regime of the facto government in Haiti, some international human rights groups remain opposed to the idea of a blanket amnesty for the coup leaders. Dante Caputo, UN’s Special Envoy to Cuba negotiates for the return to power of Jean Bertrand Aristide who has agreed to a blanket amnesty. en_US
