George Town is the capital and the main city of the Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory. Located on the island of Grand Cayman, it has an estimated population of 30,570 inhabitants, which means that more than 60% of the population of the territory is concentrated in it. It is the financial and industrial heart of the country, with more than 600 banks domiciled, many of which are subsidiaries of European banks. A large part of them are considered as "shell companies" that are used to redirect the profits of companies and avoid the payment of taxes in the countries of origin. Thanks to the tax haven status of the Cayman Islands, George Town has long maintained a great economic strength.
Tourism is the second source of income, since the islands have become an exotic and luxurious destination. The port of George Town has a cargo terminal and hosts cruises and pleasure boats. Next to the city is the Owen Roberts International Airport.
