The British Virgin Islands are a group of islands in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, east of Puerto Rico. They are a British overseas territory of the United Kingdom. 16 of the over 60 islands and reefs are inhabited. The climate is subtropical and humid, the temperatures are moderate due to winds. The economy, one of the most stable and prosperous in the Caribbean, is very dependent on tourism. From the mid-1980s, the administration offered companies the opportunity to be based on the islands with a mailbox company. The fees for setting up such firms became an important part of the national income. Approx. 400,000 letterbox companies were registered on the islands at the end of 2000.
