Tax-free shopping is now a fact

WillemstadWILLEMSTAD - The Temporary Ministerial regulation duty-free shopping, signed on September 24 by the Minister of Finance Kenneth Gijsbertha issued on 3 October by Prime Minister Eugene Rhuggenaath is now a fact.

This arrangement aims to increase the spending level of cruise tourists on Curaçao and to stimulate activity, particularly in Punda and Otrobanda.

The combination of the expected increase in the spending pattern per cruise tourist and the growth in the number of cruise tourists that Curaçao visits annually will lead to an additional annual contribution to the Curaçao economy of 36.5 million dollars.
