Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Cook Islands
Often regarded as the best kept secret in the Pacific Ocean, the volcanic islands and atolls that make up the Cook Islands were formerly a British protectorate and thrive on tourism. The 15 islands that are scattered across more than 700,000 square miles of ocean are home to many areas that look straight from the set of Castaway. It is a true escape from the modern world, where you can enjoy dense jungle, white beaches and coral lagoons if you travel the more than 10,000 miles from the UK. Aside from the tourist sector, the Cook Islands also export tropical and citrus fruits as well as manufacturing things like clothing and handicrafts. As the economy grows slowly, and demand for cheap parcel delivery to Cook Islands rises, the future could be more prosperous but it continues to rely heavily on foreign aid, particularly from New Zealand.
