Barbados

Barbados is one of the Caribbean’s leading tourist destinations and is one of the most developed islands in the region, despite it actually being classed as an Atlantic Island, with an HDI number of 0.825. In 2011 Barbados ranked 2nd in the Americas (16th globally) on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, behind Canada.  Barbados is outside of the principal Atlantic hurricane belt. The 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.
