dc.description.abstractPresident Fidel Castro broke his silence on the subject of TV Marti, the US backed propaganda television station which began broadcasting to Cuba last week. At a press conference in Havana, President Castro condemned TV Marti and the motives of the US in supporting the station. Secondly, after a victory over England yesterday, the West Indies cricket team prepares for the fourth test match in Barbados. Clive Lloyd comments on the condition of the pitch, the reaction of the British press, the morale of the WI team and the fitness of captain Viv Richards. Christopher Martin-Jenkins provides an update on the English team selection with additional comments from the acting English captain, Allan Lamb. The Financial News includes an interview with Euric Bobb, Deputy Manager of the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) on the recently concluded meeting of the bank’s governors in Montreal. The next segment follows with the announcement that the Caribbean member countries of the IADB can expect to receive up to one thousand million dollars in loans over the next two years. Euric Bobb outlines that the funds will be used for specific projects, including primary education in Guyana, the Social Impact Amelioration Program in Guyana, health care in Bahamas and Barbados, and secondary oil recovery and improvement of oil refineries in Trinidad and Tobago. The final segment provides a brief report on the failure of the recently concluded ACP Council Meeting to appoint a new director-general for the Brussels-based center.en_US
