Introduction

Jamaica is the island country located in the Caribbean Sea. In terms of size, the island is the third largest in the archipelago of the Greater Antilles. Interestingly, Jamaica is also the third largest English-speaking country in the Americas (only after The US and Canada). 

The land coverage of the island and, at the same time, its nation, is 10,991 square kilometers. If we combine it with the population of 2.72 million, it is a quite densely populated nation. Noteworthy is the fact that their total GDP (PPP included) is at the level of $27 billion. As a result, their GDP per capita is almost $9,500.
