Chinese Background

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Between the year of 1853 an 1879, about 14,000 ethnic Chinese from China were brought to the British Caribbean as indentured laborers for the sugar plantations. They settled mainly in three locations: Jamaica, Trinidad, and Guyana.

Chinese immigration to Cuba started in 1847 with bringing in workers from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan to work in the sugar fields. [1]
