Living in Antigua
Commonly known solely as Antigua, the sovereign state is formally known as Antigua and Barbuda, made up of the two major islands as the name suggests. The state also encompasses smaller islands, with a total population of around 81 000. The islands lie in the West Indies, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Formed by volcanic processes, the islands are well known for their beaches, lagoons and coves, with an abundance of reefs in the surrounding waters. The capital city of Saint John’s on the island of Antigua has the largest population of all the cities, of around 22 000, nearly a quarter of the 100 963 estimated total population. 91% of this population is African and the main religion is Christianity, an influence of the British Empire which formerly ruled the state until 1981 yet remains a Commonwealth country. Tourism has mainly dominated the economy in Antigua, known for its luxury resorts, but a slow decline followed by the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma in 2017 has meant a decline in the tourism industry. The government has thus had to be creative and developed an economic citizenship programme to attract investment and grow the economy.
