Just spent an enjoyable evening discussing cocoa growing on the island of Saint Vincent.   The banana industry was destroyed single-handedly by Bill Clinton when he pressed the United Fruit case against a special trade agreement the Caribbean countries had with the EU.  He went to court and ensured that US banana growers dominated the market.    Good to see local farmers back in business which will be great for economy.  Perhaps The Clinton Foundation will take notice and make some investments in re-training of SVG farmers.
