More about Barbados

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Barbados, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Business

With a gross national income (GNI) per resident of US $ 15,540 (2017), Barbados is one of the wealthier states in the region. Until recently, the island’s prosperity was based on the export of sugar, rum and molasses. Although the sugar cane plantations still take up the majority of the arable land, the crops are now more diversified. Tourism and international financial services are gaining in importance.

Agriculture

Agriculture, which only contributes 1.4% to the gross domestic product (GDP), is still characterized by the export-oriented cultivation of sugar cane on large plantations in the north of the island. The local agricultural products (mostly coconuts, maize, potatoes, yams, cassava, vegetables and fruits) are not enough for self-sufficiency. In the deep-sea and small-scale fisheries, mainly flying fish, golden mackerel and crabs are caught.

Industry

The most important branches of industry are sugar and syrup production, rum distilling, cigarette and beverage production as well as the leather, textile and furniture industries. Numerous electrical parts assembly companies had to close in the 1980s. Crude oil is processed and re-exported in an oil refinery. Industry (including construction) only contributes 9.5% to GDP.

Tourism

Due to the expansion of tourism (2014: 376 700 overnight guests and 570 300 cruise passengers), the service sector (2014) accounts for 71.8% of GDP. The main tourist centers are on the central west coast and the south coast east of Hastings.

Foreign trade

Barbados has a large trade deficit, but this is offset by its services account. Above all, more than 1,000 offshore companies and tourism (income: around US $ 920 million) contribute to this. The main import products are machinery, transport and food. The most important trading partners are the USA, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana. Check vaultedwatches to see Caribbean Literature in Spanish and Dutch.
