Curacao is very attractive to foreign investors and entrepreneurs. That sure is an understatement. Think privileged E-zone areas for internet based companies (e-commerce) that are subject to low profit tax, a mere 2%. Curacao is therefore a paradise for foreign entrepreneurs.View of the St. Anna Bay
In addition, the island has two free zones, one at the airport and one at the harbor. The major advantage is that no import duties are required on goods imported into one of the free zones.
Curacao also has one of the best infrastructures in the entire Caribbean. The island is strategically located and has the best connections with Europe, North America and Latin America.
Picturesque Willemstad is also home to an outstanding canal, the St. Anna Bay which serves as the main harbor. The canal is deep and wide which is perfect for large vessels. The island is also perfectly located just outside the hurricane belt.
A lot of big financial service companies and law firms can be found on the island.
The political climate is very stable. As of 2010 Curacao is considered a new country within the Dutch Kingdom. Despite worldwide economic distress Curacao’s tourism sector still grows rapidly.
