Ultra-luxurious tourism and dubious international finance to attract customers

Anguilla is a British overseas territory located in the Caribbean. Tourism is the main activity of this tiny archipelago with just over 15,000 inhabitants. It is located in front of Saint Martin, the island shared by France and the Netherlands.
He specialized in ultra-luxury tourism, attracting fewer tourists but spending much more, and then do not hesitate to invest in the financial field, in full development. The latter accounts for about 15 to 20% of economic activity. And despite the repeated declarations of good intentions year after year, the fact remains that the archipelago is still a tax haven.
