The amount of the trade of Iceland and of the Danish West Indies is insufficiently ascertained. The trade of Greenland is a State monopoly.

The West Indian Islands, St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John, are inhabited mostly by free negroes engaged in the cultivation of the sugar-cane; but the trade with Denmark, formerly considerable, has fallen off in recent years. The imports from the Danish West Indies into the United Kingdom amounted to 20,122 £. in 1897; and the exports of British produce to these islands to 55,086 £. The chief article of import into Great Britain from these islands in 1897 was sugar, 18,713 £.; while the British exports were mainly cotton goods, to the value of 15,324 £., and machinery, 4,445 £.
