St. Vincent

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is located in the Caribbean north of Trinidad and Tobago. The island nation’s main island is Saint Vincent with over 100,000 people. To the south, the Grenadines, a series of small islands and islets spanning 60km, belong partly to Grenada. With a parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy, the country's head of state is King Charles III.

Saint Vincent's economy relies primarily on agriculture. Despite a significant decline, the country remains one of the few producers of arrowroot, a former major export. Bananas have become the leading export since the mid-20th century, replacing cotton and sugarcane. The island also produces crops such as sweet potatoes, taro, plantains, yams, rice, coconuts, and flour.  

These agricultural products are both consumed domestically and exported to other countries in the Caribbean. While the island's interior is still forested, deforestation is occurring. Saint Vincent also has a growing fishing industry, exporting seafood such as lobster, conch, tuna, and swordfish to the United States and other Caribbean islands. 

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines uses the East Caribbean dollar as its official currency, which has been pegged to the United States dollar since July 7, 1976, at a rate of USD1 = XCD2.70. Most merchants accept both US paper currency and all forms of East Caribbean currency, but US coins are not accepted as they are not recognized as legal tender by the central bank.
