Barbados Introduction

  Barbados is an island country in the Caribbean Sea. It is the most easterly of all the West Indian territories. It lies 70 kilometres east of St. Vincent, its closest neighbour, and 430 kilometres northwest of Venezuela. Its capital, Bridgetown, a city of 5,000 people and the island's only seaport, is located on the southwestern section

A Short Background

The island was uninhabited when first settled by the British in 1627. Its economy remained heavily dependent on sugar, rum, and molasses production through most of the 20th century. In the 1990s, tourism and manufacturing surpassed the sugar industry in economic importance.
