PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad—
A new Caribbean Business Council (CBC) will be launched in Barbados in June to help promote private sector interest within the Caribbean community (CARICOM) Single Market and Economy (CSME), Barbados Prime Minister Owen Arthur announced last month.

Arthur said that the council would be launched on June 10 and “would not only involve the perpetuation of the existence of the CAIC (Caribbean Association of Industry and Commerce), but a re-definition of the representative body of the private sector in the region.”

Ghanaian President, John Kufuor, who left Jamaica yesterday afternoon following a three-day visit there, will be looking to develop an alumina refinery in Ghana soon.
