Jamaica/Trinidad and Tobago: Half a Century of Independence

first_img In August 2012, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago held fêtes 50 years in the making, marking their golden jubilees with music, dance and national flags. On August 6, 1962, Jamaica was the first of 10 Caribbean nations to declare independence. The celebration in the country of 2.8 million was about culture and accomplishment in a developing nation. “Jamaica may not have achieved all that was expected,” P.J. Patterson, prime minister from 1992 to 2006, told The Miami Herald. “We certainly have advanced in terms of breaking down the barriers of social divisions and of creating basic standards of life, which are distinctively higher than they were before.” Trinidad and Tobago, which became independent on August 31, 1962, is now the richest Caribbean nation, thanks to oil and gas reserves and a stable Government. “We have changed governments three to four times over that 50-year period without any bloodshed, without any riots, in a country that historically has a politics infused with race and religion in a very complex potpourri,” said Attorney General Anand Ramlogan.
