Living in Jamaica

Jamaica is a Caribbean island nation. Within the Caribbean, it ranks fourth in both population size and geographical area. It is roughly located between Cuba, Haiti, and the Cayman Islands. Its capital is Kingston, and the country is part of the Commonwealth. It became an independent nation in 1962; this led to strong economic growth in the short-term, but after a few decades Jamaica’s economy began to slow down. Nowadays, Jamaica’s main industries are tourism and mining. In recent years, Jamaica has made a trade agreement with China, in which Kingston is to become a ‘Logistics Hub’ for Chinese international trade; this is expected to boost growth in the Jamaican economy. Jamaica’s Blue Mountains dominate much of its landscape, though its tropical beaches perhaps are the main pull for visitors. Culturally, Jamaica is world-renowned. Perhaps its most recognisable cultural export is its music; reggae, ska and dub are globally popular, with reggae being popularised in particular by Bob Marley. Jamaican cuisine is also very popular, as the island is known for its jerk spice which gives national recipes such a distinct flavour. Also, in terms of sport, Jamaica consistently competes on an international level. 100m Sprint World Record holder and multiple-time Olympic Champion Usain Bolt is undoubtedly the most famous Jamaican sportsperson, while the island’s surprising competitiveness in bobsled at the Winter Olympics in the 1970s was inspiration behind the film ‘Cool Runnings’.
