Hola amigos Boricuas, es interesante saber algo sobre Islas Virgenes de Estados Unidos ya que estan solo a 60 kilometros de ustedes,
hay varias preguntas ellos tienen el mismo sistema al igual que ustedes como Estado Libre Asociado?

Si alquien tiene fotos de la capital de ellos y de las infraestructura vial le agradecería que la postearan, escuche que ellos tienen la refineria de petroleo mas grande del mundo.

Bueno, en este thread hay fotos de las islas virgenes

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=490467

No se como sea el sistema de ellos, pero son colonia tambien xDDDDD

Se ha hablado de incorporar las islas virgenes a Puerto Rico para crear un solo estado (llamado Puerto Rico) y eliminar asi de una vez dos colonias, ya que estamos muy cerca. Estaria cool, ya que me imagino yo que la transportacion a dichas islas seria mas barata. por que si de fajardo a culebra el boleto son $2 o algo asi, pues Culebra y las Islas Virgenes estan casi a la misma distancia de Fajardo a Culebra, o hasta mas cerca!!

Yo estoy loco de ir, espero hacerlo el verano proximo.

De acuerdo contigo, bori, aunque lo que sí sería interesante desde mi punto de vista sería lograr más cohesión económica entre los estados y territorios del Caribe, sin necesidad de plantearnos que nos unamos como un sólo ente político (creo que le falta mucho a la región para lograr algo así). Me extraña mucho que PR tenga tan poca relación económica con isla como Trinidad y Tobago, que es después de Puerto Rico, la economía más pujante de la región y quienes producen un montón de petróleo y sobretodo de gas natural.

wow, muy interersante esa información, yo pensaba que la segunda economía del caribe era otra Isla.
la industria del petrolio si que prospera a una nación.

Veo que hay algunas personas que estan de acuerdo con esa opinión tuya y otros no, pero creo que sería interesante tratar esos tema puede que seria bueno que se realizara una sola colonia.
Alguno de ustedes sabe si el Gobierno Federal a tocado esos temas y que tiene planeado el Gobierno Federal hacer respecto a eso?

Tienes razón Bori, si comparas a la delegada de las Islas Vírgenes al Congreso con Fortuño o Aníbal, a los dos se los lleva enredados.

Aquí pongo información sobre Trinidad y Tobago, sacada del CIA World Factbook:

First colonized by the Spanish, the islands came under British control in the early 19th century. The islands' sugar industry was hurt by the emancipation of the slaves in 1834. Manpower was replaced with the importation of contract laborers from India between 1845 and 1917, which boosted sugar production as well as the cocoa industry. The discovery of oil on Trinidad in 1910 added another important export. Independence was attained in 1962. The country is one of the most prosperous in the Caribbean thanks largely to petroleum and natural gas production and processing. Tourism, mostly in Tobago, is targeted for expansion and is growing.

Trinidad and Tobago, the leading Caribbean producer of oil and gas, has earned a reputation as an excellent investment site for international businesses. Tourism is a growing sector, although it is not proportionately as important as in many other Caribbean islands. The economy benefits from a growing trade surplus. Economic growth in 2006 reached 12.6% as prices for oil, petrochemicals, and liquefied natural gas remained high, and foreign direct investment continued to grow to support expanded capacity in the energy sector. The government is coping with a rise in violent crime.

@ davsot: Sólo una sugerencia, sería bueno que le dieras una línea de espacio entre cada foto de las que posteastes, porque a veces no se puede diferenciar bien cuando termina una foto y empieza otra. Creo que se vería más organizado así.

Por cierto, están muy buenas las fotos, gracias por traerlas.
