Curaçao is a unique Caribbean island with strong ties to the Netherlands (and the rest of Europe), the United States of America and Latin America and the Caribbean. Doing business in Curaçao, one can make use of preferential arrangements when exporting to Europe (making use of the Overseas Countries and Territories status) and the United States (under the Caribbean Basin Initiative agreement).
Curaçao has traditionally had strong ties to Latin America and the Caribbean, given the flow of migration and its proximity to the continent. Contrary to many other Caribbean islands, tourism is not the only well-developed sector. The Curaçao economy is quite diversified: logistics, the international financial sector, transnational education and oil processing are also important economic pillars.
The island also has a good physical infrastructure, including many natural harbors, an upgraded airport with a capacity for 1.6 million passengers and stable telephone and internet connections. All this makes Curaçao a safe and successful environment for investors.
