Barbados will remain one of the most politically stable countries in the Caribbean, with good governance standards in the public sector, strong institutions and a higher average income than the rest of the region.

The island's economic woes, capped by widening fiscal and current-account deficits, will remain the most pressing challenge for the prime minister, Freundel Stuart of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP).

After a protracted period of economic weakness, including stagnant growth in 2012, GDP is expected to contract in 2013-14, before rebounding modestly in 2015 in line with improved global conditions.
