Discovered in 1493 by Christopher COLUMBUS who named it for his brother Bartolomeo, St. Barthelemy was first settled by the French in 1648. In 1784, the French sold the island to Sweden, who renamed the largest town Gustavia, after the Swedish King GUSTAV III, and made it a free port; the island prospered as a trade and supply center during the colonial wars of the 18th century. France repurchased the island in 1878 and placed it under the administration of Guadeloupe. St. Barthelemy retained its free port status along with various Swedish appelations such as Swedish street and town names, and the three-crown symbol on the coat of arms. In 2003, the populace of the island voted to secede from Guadeloupe and in 2007, the island became a French overseas collectivity. (from the CIA)


Economic Overview

The economy of saint barthelemy is based upon high-end tourism and duty-free luxury commerce, serving visitors primarily from north america. the luxury hotels and villas host 70,000 visitors each year with another 130,000 arriving by boat. the relative isolation and high cost of living inhibits mass tourism. the construction and public sectors also enjoy significant investment in support of tourism. with limited fresh water resources, all food must be imported, as must all energy resources and most manufactured goods. employment is strong and attracts labor from brazil and portugal.
