Country Overview Last update
21 January, 2004 General Background
Saint Lucia is one of the most beautiful islands of the Caribbean due to its superb beaches and its rain forests. It is the most densely populated of the four Windward Islands. In 2002, the population amounted to 160 000. During the 1980s St. Lucia registered good economic performance with strong growth, low inflation, a relatively strong balance of payments position and moderate external debt ratios. Since the early 1990s real growth slowed and fiscal performance weakened due largely to the erosion of preferential access to the EU banana market as well as low productivity in the industry. During 1996-2000 major sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing recorded a negative growth rate. Real GDP growth for 2000 was 2%, attributed to a buoyant construction sector and continued growth in the tourism and financial sectors. The economy is highly susceptible to external macroeconomic shocks, magnified by an undiversified production and export base and exacerbated by natural disasters that have a serious economic impact on banana and cocoa crops.

12.1 History of slavery and independence
'Yeah, mon, the Caribbean try to make countries. It's a kind of magic. Making something from nothing.' This was said by Bunny Wailer, a Jamaican singer, interviewed by Mark Kurlansky ( : vii). Three European colonial powersSpain, France, and the Great Britainand several minor ones ruled the Caribbean from the 16th to the early 20th century. Genocide was committed on the Native American cultures. Estimates of the Indian population of the Caribbean islands in 1492 when Columbus arrived range from 225,000 to six million. Presently only few thousand of them live on the mainland South America and in Dominica ( Rogozinski 1992 The Caribbean has a common history of slavery. Between 1600 and 1870 some four million West Africans were imported to the Caribbean as slaves. By comparison, the North American mainlaind received some 460,000 Africans in the same period while Jamaica alone, for instance, received almost 750,000! This was due to high death rates and small birth rates among the Caribbean slave population at the time. New slaves from Africa had to be imported continuously. In Barbados, for instance, 387,000 slaves were imported but at the time of emancipation in 1834 there were only 81,000 to be freed. Caribbean slavery was different from any other form of slavery that has ever existed. It was the only time in history when there were societies with almost nine out of ten inhabitants being slaves, which was the situation on the sugar producing islands (

In 1814, St. Lucia was declared a CROWN COLONY, the governor residing in CASTRIES.
The plantation economy experienced a decline, as the sugar price dropped and anti-slavery legislation - the slaves were liberated in 1834 - forced the plantation owners to look for a new workforce; indentured workers were brought in from India. Today, descendants of Indians make up 3 % of the population.

A detailed overview of the history of KwaZulu-Natal: From Stone Age to Hard Won Democracy
The 'discovery' by New Millennium scientists of a so-called 'dream drug for dieters' once again highlighted the contemporary importance of our Zulu Kingdom's fascinating history - these experts acknowledging that the 'magic potion' in question is derived from a rare succulent known to our indigenous inhabitants for thousands of years. Anthropologists, in turn, were quick to point out the value of continuing to unlock the secrets of antiquity, in particular of a people who carried to their collective grave an intimate wisdom of this environment.
A Free Reign
It was, then, within a spectacular arena teeming with wildlife that the San evolved from Early Stone Age beginnings around one-and-a-half million years ago. The small-framed, ochre-skinned hunter-gatherers were 'organised' into clans and loosely connected family groups, following seasonal game migrations between mountains and coast. While the San are best known for the Drakensberg rock paintings of their Later Stone Age period beginning some 30 000 years ago, the Border Caves found in the aforementioned Lebombo Mountains show evidence of continuous human occupation for some 150 000 years. These are among the oldest Homo sapiens remains on earth, and one school of thought further suggests that our Border Caves witnessed humankind's first use of fire and burial of the dead!
