Grenada is an independent Commonwealth country situated in the Caribbean and forms part of the CARICOM. The nation consists of Grenada and six smaller islands that are located at the southern end of the Grenadines, in the southeastern Caribbean Sea.
Grenada is also known as the “Spice Island”, as the island is famous for its nutmeg and mace crops – for which Grenada is one of the world’s largest exporters. In the 17th Century, the French settled in Grenada and established sugar estates. In 1762 Britain took over the island country and expanded both the sugar industry as well as that of cacao. Later nutmeg became the leading export. Grenada achieved independence in March 1974 under the leadership of Eric Gairy, the first Prime Minister of Grenada.
