ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada — Regional integration and an erosion of trade preferences for bananas and sugar will be the focus of an International Monetary Fund team that will tour eastern Caribbean nations, according to a statement from Grenada.

The IMF team, headed by Caribbean Division Chief David Robinson, will conduct its annual mission from July 31 to August 4, the statement said.
The regional tour will include the island nations of Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Montserrat and St. Kitts.

In Grenada, the IMF officials were expected to hold meetings with Prime Minister Keith Mitchell, senior policy makers and members of the opposition to discuss domestic investment, the tax system, and the impact of rising oil prices and interest rates.
