Barbados. The country's relations with the United States
became a thorn in the spring. According to
CountryAAH, the total population in Barbados is 287,386 people in 2020.
Representatives of Barbados
discovered that the US Department of State described on its
website the Caribbean Tourist Paradise as a nation with
growing crime and an inept police force.
The information is false and must be removed, you were
told by the US Foreign Ministry, who then apologized and
removed the information. The warning, according to the
United States, was really intended to be under the
information of a completely different country. Which was not
wanted to say. Barbados economy is entirely dependent on
tourism, not least from the United States.
The ongoing conflict with Trinidad and Tobago over water
boundaries and fishing rights worsened during the year.
Barbados imposed import restrictions on the neighboring
country after police in Trinidad arrested some fishermen
from Barbados who, according to them, had ended up on the
wrong side of the border. The conflict has been going on
since the last fisheries agreement expired in 1990. Barbados
decided to pass the dispute on to the UN Convention on the
Law of the Sea UNCLOS.
