"Discovered" by Christopher Columbus in 1502, the island was inhabited sporadically by different Americo/Indian tribes until they were wiped out by western conquerors following the occupation by the French In 1635. A large workforce was required to manage the cultivation of sugar cane and therefore slaves were imported into the island from the 1670s; slavery was abolished on May 22, 1848. Throughout its history, Martinique has been scarred by various imperial struggles between European colonial empires, in particular against the English, the development of agriculture, natural disasters (including the eruption of Mount Pelée on 8 May 1902, which destroyed the city of Saint Pierre, 'Little Paris of the West Indies' with 30,000 killed.

Today, the island produces bananas (using 17% of the total area of ??the island, about 190 square kilometres and producing 0.35% of the world's production), sugar cane, and rum are the main resources of the island. There is of course tourism, which directly and indirectly represents almost 10% of Martinique's GDP.
