Anguilla Location, History, People and Economy
Anguilla Islands are located in Caribbean, between the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean, east of Puerto Rico. With land area about 91 square km, about one-half the size of Washington, DC of the United Stated of America.
Colonized by English settlers from Saint Kitts in 1650, Anguilla was administered by Great Britain until the early 19th century, when the island – against the wishes of the inhabitants – was incorporated into a single British dependency along with Saint Kitts and Nevis. Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized in 1980, with Anguilla becoming a separate British dependency.
Anguilla Islands has about 16,418 population (July 2015 estimate), including black 90.1%, mixed 4.6%, white 3.7%, other 1.5% (2001 estimate). English is the official language in Anguilla.
Anguilla has few natural resources, and the economy depends heavily on luxury tourism, offshore banking, lobster fishing, and remittances from emigrants. Increased activity in the tourism industry has spurred the growth of the construction sector contributing to economic growth. Anguillan officials have put substantial effort into developing the offshore financial sector, which is small but growing. In the medium term, prospects for the economy will depend largely on the tourism sector and, therefore, on revived income growth in the industrialized nations as well as on favorable weather conditions.
Anguilla uses East Caribbean dollars (XCD) as its currency. The exchange rate of East Caribbean dollars (XCD) per US dollar is about 2.70 XCD in August 2015.
