fost of thesis islands pay Lip-service to the various regional
agreements on Jree trade, nevertheless, quantitative and
other barriers exist to a large extent: 7fPPWI

7,at a ceremony to launch
fIW- "Satzenbrau- beer, a new product
of Grenada Breweries Limited,
Minister of Finance Mr George Brizan said
total exports of the countries of the
Organisation Of East Caribbean States
(OECSS) to Trinidad & Tobago is worsening.

"Today, he said, "we are still faced 'with
i certain non-tariff barriers and quantit-
tative restrictions in penetrating that

In 19o0, the Minister said, the
t"-CS exported approximately | -
EC$99 million to Trinidad

a ar ket and, 10 -
years later, that% ^4 ..*
figure had risen to
i6104 m ilion.

LMr Brizan said, however,
that a closer examination of
the situation shows a
S differentL picture.
SBetween 1980 and
S- 193, he said, OECS-
exports to Trinidad
.- ri & Tobago increased
from EC$99 tof
iEC$ 145 million, and
4 after 1983 there
-was a slump to
EC$104 million

At the sa:me
S HR FRED TOPPING time, the Minis-
ter said, Trini-
dad:I & Tobago annual exports to the OECS
increased by_ EC$46 million over the

period Iou bto 1990.

The marketing of e
"S-atenbrau, beer is to
be geared mainly to
expo "" rts in C ARICOM,
and Mr t, izanrt promised
Governments support e
"in a very practical

iI ,1All CARICOM countries

Grena:3da is subscribing to both the spirit
and letter .: that agreement.
At The Highest Level
If the marketing of rSatzenbrau.
encounters any trade impediments,i
quantitative restrictions and non-

will take the matter up and have it
resolved at the highest level

forgiveness of debt means debt owe to other
Governments, it does not invludE CGvernment's debts owed
to commercial sources

S6I- ont October 24th from the
recently concluded 50-nation
Commonwealth Summit held in
Harare, Zimbabwe, Prime Minister
icholas Brathwaite said, at an airport
press conference, the Summit decided
economic aid tco Eastern Europe should
Snot diminish aid to needy countries of the
Western World.

"It must be remembered there are.
countries......... which need economic assist-
nce" he said, "and in no way should we
allow flows to the Soviet Union and Eastern
Europe to deny other countries, "which
have practiced democracy for a long time,

Mr Brathwaite said the British Prime
Minister, Mr John Major, told the
Summit his Government, in collab-
oration with the "Paris Club' of
industralised nations, will ensure
economic assistance will continue
to 'this part of the world" and the
Club will have to find new sources
of funds for Eastern Europe and the
Soviet Union-
Forgiveness Of Debt
Another matter discussed by the S-ummit
was the "forgiveness of debt", Mr
Brathwaite said, but he warned these
concessions are for very poor countries
and Grenada is not considered to be in
that category .

-e warned also that forgiveness of debt
a this context means debt owed to th er
government, it does not include Govern-
:,ent's debts owed to commercial sources.

Traditionally, the island of Carriacou, 20
miles off the north coast of Grenada with
a population of some 6,000 people, has
been a haven for smugglers, residents of
that island, who have brought in cigarettes
