Is Kingston the richest place in Jamaica?
QUESTION: Is Kingston the richest place in Jamaica? ANSWER: June-09-2009 by Wellesley Gayle Hi Gaelle, I am not sure what you mean by 'rich', but been the capital of Jamaica, not only is Kingston the cultural center of the island, it is also considered the business and commercial hub of the country. It also host all the Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates, some of the major hospitals, as well as some of the largest media and communication organizations. Of course, you'll certainly find all the international fast food chains in the island here as well. Industries in Kingston include tourism, petroleum products, textiles, and clothing, while major exports are agricultural items such as bananas, sugar, coffee, molasses and rum. That said, Kingston also house some of the poorest communities or 'ghettos'. These communities account for some of the highest crime rates in the island and that is due, again, primarily to the poverty levels there.
