One may wonder how then does such a small country sustain and also attract a lot of visitors to its country to explore and enjoy.Facilities for the locals’ will no doubt have to be reduce and the monies from them giving toward the tourist sector. However the infrastructure has to increase as there are a lot many people visiting this country and needs have arised to build more hotels and tourist related products.

Business and Economy

The government continues its efforts to reduce unemployment, to encourage direct foreign investment, and to privatize remaining state-owned enterprises.
