The American Virgin Islands ( US Virgin Islands USVI ; also the United States Virgin Islands or the American Virgin Islands, officially the Virgin Islands of the United States ) are a group of islands in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, east of Puerto Rico. It consists of the three main islands of Saint Croix, Saint John and Saint Thomas. Water Island was only added in 1996, and there are also numerous smaller islands. The islands are a non-incorporated American outlying area.

The focus of the economy is on tourism. An average of 2 million tourists visit the islands every year. The industrial sector consists mainly of petroleum refineries. One of the world’s largest oil refineries is on Saint Croix. International trade and the financial sector are a small but growing part of the economy. Agriculture is insignificant; most food has to be imported.
