Abstract: The history of sugar in the Caribbean can be traced back to the 17th century when the Dutch introduced sugarcane to these islands in the 1640s. Since then, the sugar industry had been the backbone of the Caribbean economies. In 1965, the Caribbean region, with its ten sugar exporting countries, had a peak annual sugar production of 1.4 million tons. However, in just thirty years, by 1995, the Caribbean sugar production had dropped to 0.8 million tons per annum and the region was left with only six sugar exporting countries.

Pedagogical Objectives:

To discuss how excessive economic protectionism by the European nations led to inefficiencies in the Caribbean sugar industry and finally crippled the industry in the wake of globalisation that did away with the protectionist policies.
