Blog: Leonie BarrieThe MFA on the BBC

Leonie Barrie | 30 January 2004

The whirlwind of international trade diplomacy that is the Multi Fibre Agreement found its way onto BBC Radio 4’s In Business programme last night. The 30-minute programme is well worth listening to. It takes a close look at the MFA and the impact of its abolition at the end of 2004 on developing countries, in particular Sri Lanka. The programme’s presenter Peter Day speaks with MAS Holdings’ chairman Mahesh Amalean, who I also met with when I visited the country at the end of last year. But I’m a little annoyed that several things we discussed as being ‘off the record’ have subsequently found their way into this radio broadcast!
