Saint Lucia is a small upper middle income open economy, highly dependent on the services sector, especially tourism. It is an island economy highly vulnerable to external shocks (natural disasters; volatile tourism receipts; foreign oil prices; global growth and demand). Saint Lucia’s GDP is comprised of 82.8% services (of which tourism, both direct and indirect, contributes 65%), 14.2% industrial sector and 2.9% agricultural sector (2017 estimates). The economy is therefore heavily dependent on the tourism sector for its growth. The economy experienced a combined 8% growth between 2016-2019, though following a slower trajectory from 2.6% in 2018 to 1.7% in 2019. GDP growth in 2019 resulted from expansions in tourism, manufacturing and transport which overshadowed declines in wholesale & retail, construction and agriculture.
