History: Antigua was discovered by Columbus in 1493 and colonized by the English along with Barbuda in the 17th century. The islands were a British colony from 1871 to 1956. In 1981 Antigua and Barbuda became an independent state in the Commonwealth.

The islands can be affected by tropical cyclones, especially in the months of July to October. In September 2017, Hurricane “Irma” almost completely destroyed the island of Barbuda.

Economy

Business

Antigua, poor in natural resources, lived on its sugar cane plantations until the 1970s. Since then, tourism has become the most important economic factor. With a gross national income (GNI) of (2015) US $ 13,390 per resident, the islands take a top position among the Eastern Caribbean CARICOM countries (Caribbean Community).

Foreign trade: Foreign trade has been in deficit for several years. (Import value 2016: 482.1 million US $, export value: 61.7 million US $). The main trading partners are the USA, Barbados, Great Britain and Trinidad and Tobago.

Agriculture

Agriculture only (2015) contributes 2.4% to the gross domestic product (GDP). Traditional sugar cane cultivation was discontinued in 1972, but has been resumed at a low level for several years. Vegetables and fruit production predominate (mango, limes, pineapples, pumpkins, sweet potatoes). A low level of self-sufficiency requires high food imports.

Fishing: The fishing fleet has been modernized in recent years (deep-sea port, trawlers), but small-scale fishing is still predominant. Coral and deep sea fish as well as shrimp are caught.

Industry

The manufacturing industry (including construction) accounts for 18.4% of GDP (2015). The industry is poorly developed. The processing of agricultural products (cotton, sugar) and the production of beverages (rum), furniture and building materials predominate. There are also assembly companies for electrical parts. Production possibilities for re-export have existed in a free trade zone since 1993.

Tourism

More than half of the GDP is generated by tourism. In 2013, 792,300 tourists (mainly from Great Britain, the USA and Canada) visited the islands, 533,300 of them as cruise passengers. With small, exclusive holiday resorts, the island focuses on upscale tourism.

Transportation

Antigua is well developed and has around 1,200 km of roads (partly paved); there are only sandy roads on Barbuda. The deep sea port of Saint John’s has been expanded to become one of the most important cruise ports in the Caribbean. Falmouth Bay near English Harbor in south Antigua is one of the world’s largest marinas. V. C. Bird Airport is located in the northeast of the island.

History

The island of Antigua was discovered by Columbus in 1493; Barbuda was colonized by English settlers in 1628 and Antigua in 1632, while Redonda remained uninhabited. Intensive sugar cane cultivation began in 1674 with African slaves as labor. In 1834 slavery was abolished.

1871–1956 Antigua and Barbuda was administered as part of the Leeward Islands colony and should become independent under the West Indian Federation (1958–62). After their failure, Antigua and Barbuda received autonomy in 1967 (as part of the West Indian Associated States), became a founding member of the Caribbean Community, which was established in 1973, and gained state independence within the Commonwealth in 1981. Vere Cornwall Bird (* 1909, † 1999) became Prime Minister of the Antigua Labor Party (ALP), which has ruled since 1946 (with an interruption from 1971 to 1976), and in 1994 his son Lester Bryant Bird (* 1938; also ALP) held this office followed. The reign of the Bird family ended in 2004 with the election of Baldwin Spencer (* 1948; United Progressive Party, UPP) as Prime Minister comes to an end. Under the leadership of Spencer, the UPP also won the 2009 elections with 9 out of 17 seats. The election result was only legally confirmed in October 2010 after an election challenge. A long-standing economic dispute with the USA in connection with online casinos operated on Antigua and Barbuda was settled by the WTO in January 2013 in favor of the island state. The WTO allowed the use of US intellectual property up to the equivalent of US $ 21 million per year. In the parliamentary elections in June 2014, there was a change of power in favor of the opposition. The ALP was able to win 14 of the 17 parliamentary seats, while the UUP only received 3 seats. The ALP leader Gaston Browne (* 1967) took over the post of prime minister. Under his leadership, the ALP won 15 out of 17 seats in the March 2018 elections.
