Opportunities are plentiful for entrepreneurs who venture abroad. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) helps businesses fulfill their international ambitions. Entrepreneurs in the Caribbean countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands can benefit from the agency’s services.
Promoting trade and export
To promote trade and investment and strengthen the whole of the Kingdom’s foreign economic relations, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has made various instruments available to entrepreneurs on Curaçao, Aruba, St Maarten and other countries in the Caribbean Netherlands since 1 January 2018.
The services, subsidies and other programmes are available for trade and investment projects in countries outside the Kingdom. Caribbean entrepreneurs may use these services and programmes under the same conditions as European Dutch companies and in cooperation with local partners.
