Yearbook 1997

Dominica. During the year, the World Trade Organization found that the EU favored its former colonies in the Caribbean at the expense of banana growing and banana exporting countries in Latin America. The former British colony of Dominica was one of the countries favored by the WTO. In Dominica, the ban accounts for about 80% of export earnings and it was thought that a change of EU rules towards the WTO recommended would be a disaster for the country's economy. According to Countryaah, the WTO's decision was the third negative for the EU in the same case and it was uncertain whether a further EU appeal would lead to any other decision.
