dc.description.abstractThe defeat of Nicaragua’s Sandinista government leaves Cuba isolated in the western hemisphere. To Cuba this means that Daniel Ortega, Mikhail Gorbachev and most of Eastern Europe is surrendering to the forces of capitalist economies and democracy. Secondly, the UN Commission for Refugees recommends that Caricom provide assistance to Belize’s refugee problem. A growing number of people, mainly from El Salvador are finding their way into Belize to seek asylum. Following the Financial News, Edwin Carrington, the outgoing ACP Secretary General speaks at his final press conference and urges the Brussels based group not to concentrate its efforts on getting European Community aid to foster industrialization amongst member countries. The report concludes with the upcoming meeting of ACP and EEC officials to complete the report on implications of the single European market for the nations of the ACP Group.en_US
