It takes eons to get the most basic utilities and infrastructure implemented and fixed. There are still people in Trinidad and Tobago waiting decades for water through a tap or electricity from a light pole.
Dustin was spot on. The per capita income figure is approaching that of a first world nation but infrastructurally speaking, we look very third-world.
