In pictures: The Falklands economy
Cruising along

Tourism has climbed to second in the money-making stakes, with investments and agriculture coming third and fourth.

Estimated figures suggest the Falkland Islands make 10-11m per year from tourism.

Most comes from about 50,000 cruise ship visitors who typically call in for one day. Land-based tourism numbers have levelled off partly due to a lack of infrastructure.

Wildlife is the biggest draw, including huge colonies of penguins and albatrosses, sea lions, whales and dolphins.
