A&B recommences negotiations with US on gaming dispute

Minister of International Trade and Foreign Affairs, Charles “Max”

Fernandez, who will be travelling to the US on the weekend to meet next week with officials said,

“We’re going to try and see how best we could move forward this issue. But, I won’t be able to state publicly what our strategy is and what we are putting on the table.

Pressed to say whether government would be weakening its demands any further or how soon he expects a resolution, the minister said, “What I can say is that I think we are at a stage now, where there is a serious commitment, or it seems to me, there’s a serious commitment on both sides to work as quickly as possible to settle the issue.”

The Gaston-Browne led administration last year said the US restriction on its citizens participating in online gaming has cost Antigua & Barbuda US$3 billion – in cash and jobs. But, instead of demanding that sum, the government would be asking for a US$100 million – negotiable – settlement in cash and kind.
