The growth of tourism in the 21st century significantly fuelled an economic windfall for the island. Before that, the manufacturing and financial sector played an important role in the country’s economic structure. This prosperity, combined with decades of political stability, has resulted in high levels of human development. The country has a reputation for good governance and has been rated as the best governed country in Africa by the Ibrahim Foundation. Despite this, however, certain sectors of society still suffer from discrimination, poverty and human rights infringements.
