dc.descriptionAt the beginning of March, Mr Carl B Greenidge (photo right) took over the Directorship of CTA from Dr R D Cooke, who had held the post since 1995 (see 'Viewpoint', p. 16). Mr Greenidge, who trained as an economist with a specialisation in agricultural economics, is the third person to lead the organisation. Prior to taking up his new assignment, he was Deputy Secretary General of the General Secretariat of the ACP Group of States in Brussels, a position he held since 1992. In his native Guyana, Mr Greenidge first lectured in agricultural economics and subsequently served as Minister of Finance for almost a decade. As architect of the country s Structural Adjustment Programme, he is credited with helping to rescue Guyana from a long period of economic decline. His professional interests have been in agricultural planning, with particular reference to the effect of agricultural innovations on rural incomes in Africa, the role of rural markets in development and the management of fisheries resources. His book on land settlement schemes in Guyana, which deals with the empowerment of the peasantry, is about to be published. Mr Greenidge comes to CTA well versed in ACP-EU affairs having experienced the negotiation of many ACP-EU cooperation agreements at first-hand, including the protracted negotiations to establish a successor agreement to Lomé IV. His earlier responsibilities in these negotiations have included trade in general, and agricultural commodity protocols in particular.
