  • Destination the Idyllic Isles Tourism has always dominated Antigua and Barbuda's economy, accounting for nearly 60 percent of GDP and 40 percent of investment. The islands are nothing if not idyllic, and Barbuda has been described as, almost literally, one big beach. Its position at the centre of the Leeward Islands makes it accessible to visitors from North America, Europe and South America, a fact not unrelated to the rapid expansion and strategic importance of VC Bird International. However the country has its eye on China as a very large source of future tourists. As Antigua's Ambassador to China David Shoul puts it: "There's no reason why Antigua should not be the hub for Chinese tourists flying in to join cruise ships and explore the Caribbean."
