Antigua & Barbuda (.AG)

One of the most flourishing areas in the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda does so well thanks to tourism and banking. The tourism industry brings in a lot of revenue from foreign exchange. Antigua offers an attractive offshore financial center with it’s key asset being that it exists in the same time zone as New York, Central America, and a portion of South America.

Although the economy of Antigua and Barbuda is based mainly on services, construction and light manufacturing are also important. Manufacturers export many items such as paint, furniture, paper products, and the assembly of garments, vehicles, and household appliances. In order to encourage local manufacturers, they were given the right to export items tax-free and duty-free. Their trading partners consist of the United States, Europe, Canada, and the Caribbean.
