Dutch Premier wants to boost Curaçao’s investments with a new economic mission

Mark_RutteTHE HAGUE - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte wants a new economic mission to Curaçao in early 2019 to boost investment.

"Curaçao is a fantastic stepping stone to Latin America, as the Netherlands is the gateway to Europe", says the Prime Minister.

Rutte emphasized the importance of cooperation at a recently held investment conference for Curaçao in The Hague. "As the Kingdom of the Netherlands, we connect two continents and two cultures together. That is unique and it gives Dutch companies that invest in Curaçao a huge advantage."

He pointed to the ongoing discussions between the ports of Rotterdam and Curaçao. "For Rotterdam a new advanced post in another part of the world and for Curaçao a promising partnership."

Rutte was already on a trade mission in 2013 in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.
