Recovering tourism will provide some respite to the island's economic woes-chiefly large fiscal and current-account deficits-and boost the fortunes of the prime minister, Freundel Stuart of the Democratic Labour Party.

Notwithstanding ongoing economic concerns, political stability levels will remain among the highest in the Caribbean, with good governance standards, strong institutions and comparatively high average incomes.

After years of stagnation following the 2008-9 economic crisis, real GDP will recover but remain fragile in 2016-17, averaging 1.6% even as external conditions improve.
