Vanuatu

Introduction
Vanuatu is an independent country located in the South Pacific Ocean. The economic mainstays of this beautiful island country are agriculture, fishing, offshore financial services, and tourism. The economy heavily depends on the tourism sector, which is really ideal for offshore businesses.
Vanuatu in fact used to be a tax heaven even before its independence in 1980, which means it has a long history with offshore businesses. In Vanuatu, an offshore company is called International Company.
