In a bid to improve the economic fortunes of Saint Lucy, almost every leader of Barbados has grappled with various plans of how to turn around the development status of the Parish. One of the most recent ideas during the 1990s was to capitalise on a venture said to be in the works by Donald Trump in neighbouring Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. It was being proposed that if Donald Trump moved ahead to develop a hotel in those islands, that Barbados could build a second seaport with large ships traveling directly to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines for wealthy land-owners at the Trump development to have easy access to the Grantley Adams airport in Barbados.

Country - Barbados

Flag of Barbados
Barbados is an island country in the Lesser Antilles of the West Indies, in the Caribbean region of North America. It is 34 km in length and up to in width, covering an area of. It is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea; therein, Barbados is east of the Windwards, part of the Lesser Antilles, roughly at 13°N of the equator. It is about east of both the countries of Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados is outside the principal Atlantic hurricane belt. Its capital and largest city is Bridgetown.

Inhabited by Kalinago people since the 13th century, and prior to that by other Amerindians, Barbados was visited by Spanish navigators in the late 15th century and claimed for the Spanish Crown. It first appeared in a Spanish map in 1511. The Portuguese claimed the island in 1536, but later abandoned it, with their only remnants being an introduction of wild hogs for a good supply of meat whenever the island was visited. An English ship, the Olive Blossom, arrived in Barbados in 1625; its men took possession of it in the name of King James I. In 1627, the first permanent settlers arrived from England, and it became an English and later British colony. As a wealthy sugar colony, it became an English centre of the African slave trade until that trade was outlawed in 1807, with final emancipation of slaves in Barbados occurring over a period of years from 1833.
