CaribWorldNews, ST. GEORGE`S, Grenada, Thurs. Aug. 12, 2010: The government of Libya is pitching in to help Grenada.
Grenada`s Foreign Minister Peter David says Libya will give the Spice Isle a $1.9 million grant which will go to public works projects in the country.
David also said Libya may forgive Grenada a $6 million debt. The North African country is seemingly expanding its interest in the eastern Caribbean. OECS officials have worked out several agreements with Libya, including the opening of a Libyan embassy in St. Lucia and a bank in St. Kitts.
Libyan officials plans to visit the region in September to follow-up.
