History of Grenada

As a Commonwealth realm, Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of Grenada and Head of State. The Crown is represented by a Governor-General, who is currently Carlyle Glean. Day-to-day executive power lies with the Head of Government, the Prime Minister.

In 1967, Britain gave Grenada autonomy over its internal affairs. Full political independence was attained in 1974 making Grenada one of the smallest independent countries in the Western Hemisphere.

Today, Grenada is a full and participating member of both the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

Christopher Columbus discovered the island in 1498, when it was inhabited by Caribs, but it remained uncolonised for more than a century. It was settled by France during the 17th century. The French established sugar plantations, and imported large numbers of African slaves. Britain took over the island in 1762 and vigorously expanded sugar production.

Later on, in the 19th century, cacao surpassed sugar as the main export crop, then in the 20th century, nutmeg became the leading export.

Economy of Grenada

Grenada is a commonwealth realm consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. Blessed by nature with beautiful nature and such a desirable climate, and with such a well-connected airport, it’s not surprising that Grenada’s main source of income is tourism. Tourism has also been given a dramatic boost by the construction of a large cruise ship pier and esplanade: up to four cruise ships per day visit St. Georges.

Conventional beach and water-sports tourism is largely focused in the southwest region around St George, the airport and the coastal strip; however, ecotourism is growing in significance: there are small ‘eco’ guesthouses in the Saint David and Saint John parishes and plans for developments on the other Grenadine islands.

Grenada is also known as the “Island of Spice” being one of the world’s largest exporters of of nutmeg and mace.  Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice, orange/citrus peels, and wild coffee are also important exports. The nutmeg on the nation’s flag represents the economic crop of Grenada.

The island has also pioneered the cultivation of organic cocoa which is also processed into finished bars by the Grenada Chocolate Company.

Grenada shares a common central bank and a common currency (the East Caribbean dollar or XCD) with seven other members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). US dollars are also widely accepted.
