Trinidad & Tobago Introduction

Trinidad and Tobago is an independent country in the West Indies. The territory consists of two main islands--Trinidad and Tobago--and 21 smaller islands.

It is located in the southeastern Caribbean Sea at the southern end of the Lesser Antilles chain of islands. Trinidad, the larger of the two main islands, lies with its southwestern tip only 11 kilometres from the coast of Venezuela.
Tobago lies 32 kilometres northeast of Trinidad.

A Short Background

The islands came under British control in the 19th century; independence was granted 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.
