Access from EThOS:
BARBADOS became a sovereign state on 30th November, 1966 after being a colony of Great Britain for some three hundred years. Sovereignty and independence are however, not synonomous terms. Because of historical experience and minute size, the island remains structurally very dependent on one or two dominant economic partners for foreign exchange earnings, capital inflows, the provision of entrepreneurial talents and skilled personnel* The task facing the political leadership is one involving the transformation Of the economic and social structure, in order to increase national viability, Since small size is usually closely correlated with a high degree of involvement in international trade and capital flows, the achievement of purely domestic objectives will depend, in large measure, on the proper ordering of the country's relations with other economic entities.
