- overview: 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,
which has spurred the growth of the construction sector, has
contributed to economic growth. Anguillian 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
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.
