Marshall Islands Business, Taxation and Offshore Information
The Marshall Islands is the easternmost island group in Micronesia, situated nearly midway between Indonesia and Hawaii.
British naval officer John Marshall gave his name to the islands in the 1700s. Several powers controlled the Marshall Islands until, after the Second World War, the Marshall went under United States administration. The Republic of the Marshall Islands gained its independence in 1986, after signing a compact of free association with the United States. The country became a full member of the United Nations in 1991.
The constitution, signed in 1979, is a blend of British and American models of government and the official language is English. The Marshall Islands has enjoyed political stability since it gained its independence. More »
