Tlo historyczne The island - discovered by Christopher COLUMBUS w 1494 - was settled by the Spanish early w the 16th century. The native Taino Indiens, who had inhabited Jamajka dla centuries, were gradually exterminated and replaced by African slaves. England seized the island w 1655 and established a plantation economy based on sugar, cocoa, and coffee. The abolition of slavery w 1834 freed a quarter million slaves, many of whom became small farmers. Jamajka gradually obtained increasing independence from Britain, and w 1958 it joined other British Caribbean colonies w forming the Federation of the West Indies. Jamajka gained full independence when it withdrew from the Federation w 1962. Deteriorating economic conditions during the 1970s led to recurrent violence as rival gangs affiliated z the major political parties evolved into powerful organized crime networks involved w international drug smuggling and money laundering. Violent crime, drug trafficking, and poverty pose significant challenges to the government today. Nonetheless, many rural and resort areas remain relatively safe and contribute substantially to the economy.

Ekonomiczna pomoc - pobieranie $35.74 million (2005)
Ekonomia The Jamajkan economy is heavily dependent on services, which now account dla more than 60% of Produkt krajowy brutto. The country continues to derive most of its foreign exchange from tourism, remittances, and bauxite/alumina. Remittances account dla nearly 20% of Produkt krajowy brutto and are equivalent to tourism revenues. Jamajka's economy, already saddled z a record of sluggish growth, will suffer an economic setback from damages caused by Hurricane Dean w sierpien 2007. The economy faces serious long-term problems: high but declining interest rates, increased foreign competition, exchange rate instability, a sizable merchandise trade deficit, large-scale unemployment and underemployment, and a debt-to-Produkt krajowy brutto ratio of 135%. Jamajka's onerous debt burden - the fourth highest per capita - is the result of government bailouts to ailing sectors of the economy, most notably the financial sector w the mid-to-late 1990s. Inflation also has declined, standing at about 7% at the end of 2007. High unemployment exacerbates the serious crime problem, including gang violence that is fueled by the drug trade. The GOLDING administration faces the difficult prospect of having to achieve fiscal discipline w order to maintain debt payments while simultaneously attacking a serious and growing crime problem that is hampering economic growth.
