Barbados’s economic freedom score is 65.0, making its economy the 67th freest in the 2021 Index. Its overall score has increased by 3.6 points, primarily because of an improvement in fiscal health. Barbados is ranked 12th among 32 countries in the Americas region, and its overall score is above the regional and world averages.

In 2021, the economic freedom score for Barbados climbed higher in the moderately free category. The main reason for the improvement was better management of debt by the government. Scores for the judicial effectiveness and tax burden indicators also improved. Reduction of the country’s extremely large public debt is a significant step toward the restoration of investor confidence.

IMPACT OF COVID-19: As of December 1, 2020, seven deaths had been attributed to the pandemic in Barbados, and the economy was forecast to contract by 11.6 percent for the year.
