Tourism Development on Curaçao.
The Curaçao Tourism Development Foundation (CTDF) is a government-funded foundation. Its main responsibility as stated in its articles of incorporation is to develop the tourism industry and the execution of the tourism policy as established by the government. In order to achieve this objective the CTDF receives funding from the national government in the form of subsidy and is awarded the income derived from the collection of (hotel)room tax. This tax is levied through the CTDF and collected by the government.

Curaçao Airport City.
Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH), owner of Curaçao International Airport, has recently taken the first steps in the development of the airport and its surroundings into a state-of-the-art Airport City: a sophisticated service hub, offering green, high-tech and innovative products and services. The Master Plan for Curaçao Airport City involves development of 450 hectares of land for considerable expansion of the existing airport services with brand new business hotels, showrooms and warehouses, as well as high-end products and services such as Commercial Spaceport Operations, an Eco Park and innovative Eco-, Aqua- and Agriculture related industries.

Curaçao International Airport Partners.
On August 1, 2003 Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP), an international consortium, started a 30-year concession agreement to develop and operate the Curaçao International Airport in the Netherlands Antilles. Under this concession agreement CAP has taken responsibility for developing and operating the airport.

In addition, there are naturally sheltered deepwater ports, modern facilities, a wide array of shipping services with excellent telecommunication facilities and infrastructure and is therefore able to facilitate every need of the modern shipping industry.
