The Republic of Palau has a tightly clustered archipelago of about 300 islands. It is an independent country that has signed the Compact of Free Association with the United States. This fact makes the idea of buying a company in Palau more attractive. In addition, the United States provides the Republic with economic aid and access to federal services and programs, permits citizens to reside in U.S. states and territories, and assumes responsibility for defense and security. A favorable tax regime is the main reason foreign investors are interested in establishing a business in Ngerulmud or any other city in Palau.
