The need for durable economic growth and how to get there.
In terms of growth percentages of the GDP, Curaçao's economic performance over the last ten years has not been exuberant. On an average, the economic growth was barely 0.9 %. For 2013 and 2014 shrinkage of 2.3 % is expected, partly as a result of a large number of cost increasing measures (the so called "cold turkey" approach) that have been taken in the first quarter of 2013 in order to try to reduce the budget shortfalls and to establish a balance.

Advantages of the Curaçao Jurisdiction for setting up offices or legal structures.
Curaçao, which on 10-10-2010 acquired its autonomous status within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, is one of the premier (and oldest) international financial centres offering a politically stable jurisdiction and is home to many of the world’s leading financial institutions. Supervision by the Central Bank as well as by the Supervisory Committee governing the financial and fiduciary industry ensures transparency, security and stability of the sector.

Curaçao's Regional Role in the Digital Age.
Worldwide surveys are showing that emerging markets are leading the digital age. China, the Middle East and parts of Latin America are leading the West in embracing the Internet. Online consumers in rapid growth markets have overtaken mature markets in terms of engaging with digital activities, despite the benefits of more advanced infrastructures in the developed world.
