Categories: Caribbean, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Economics & Business, Environment, Food, International Relations, Law, Media & Journalism

InternetRapide.com points (FR) to recent efforts to promote Martinique and Guadeloupe bananas [1], including a commercial [2] and website [3] featuring athletes from the two islands.

Caribbean Free Radio gave the commercial a thumbs up [4].
