Letter from the President

The Curaçao Chamber of Commerce & Industry has a longstanding tradition of informing both our local and our international business relations on the performance of our economy, the opportunities it presents and the challenges it faces. For the past few decades, we have been doing this successfully through our bi-monthly publications, seconded by our website and now also our Facebook pages and other web 2.0 instruments.

Recently the Chamber reached an agreement with Van Munster Media Group of Holland to publish Curaçao Business four times a year. Curaçao Business is a traditional magazine that will be available online and in print. Van Muster Media Group is an experienced publisher in business magazines and already publishes five such magazines for cities and municipalities in Holland.

With this new publication the Chamber will expand its dissemination of information to local and international entrepreneurs.

Recently a covenant was signed between the public and private sector agreeing on how to proceed with a positive economic development. The government presented an overview of the economic potential of Curaçao showing interesting investments in public infrastructure, which in turn presents challenging opportunities to the private sector. These developments represent opportunities to improve our business and investment climate, gearing up locally to play the facilitator’s role in attracting new foreign investments and focus on the expansion of our markets.

In the coming editions we will be keeping our business partners informed on the positive developments.

We hope you enjoy the first edition of Curaçao Business. Please let me know if you have any comments and suggestions.

Willem “Billy” Jonckheer
