Abstract
This special edition program provides an extended interview with Dr. Edwin Carrington, outgoing Secretary General of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of Nations. In February 1990, Dr. Carrington stepped down as Secretary General of the ACP, after being defeated in his bid for re-elections. During his 15 years with the ACP Secretariat in Brussels, he played a key role in overseeing the negotiations and implementations of the trade and aid agreements with the EEC under the Lome Convention. In the interview, Dr. Carrington comments on the election process; the lobbying of Caribbean leaders on his behalf; the suggestion that his campaigning and travelling adversely affected his performance towards the end of his term; the division amongst the ACP Group; his future plans; and the economic future of the Caribbean.
