Willemstad is buzzing: Countdown to Invest in Willemstad 2023 begins!

WILLEMSTAD, THE HAGUE - Last week, two infosessions were held at the Curaçao Chamber of Commerce, and recently one session at the “CuraçaoHuis” in The Hague. These meetings took place in preparation for the fifth-anniversary edition of Invest in Willemstad, which will be held in Curaçao from December 3-5. The goal is to shine a spotlight on Willemstad as a historic world heritage city as a great place for investment and business. 

The meeting in Curaçao on October 11 was intended to inform local investors, project developers, and organizations involved in construction and operations about the Invest in Willemstad program and how they can participate. Additionally, the meeting on October 18 in Curaçao aimed to encourage property owners in Willemstad to register their properties if they want to sell or rent.  

During the well-attended meetings in Curaçao, it was explained that investments in Willemstad are thriving. Much has been achieved in recent years. Large and boutique hotels have been added, buildings in Punda have been transformed into apartments, significant parts of Otrobanda have been beautifully renovated, the Scharloo district is undergoing a transformation, and construction is underway or in preparation for three hotels in Pietermaai. 

Invest in Willemstad is pleased to play a significant role in promoting Willemstad. An estimated 500 million ANG has been invested in the past five years. Over the next 5 to 6 years, an investment volume of around 700 million is expected for Willemstad, excluding public investments and building preparations. This presents abundant potential and opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs who join now. As was stated in 2019: Historic Willemstad is worth its weight in gold; it's a matter of seizing the opportunity. 

On October 17, Billy Jonckheer, President of the Curaçao Chamber of Commerce, presented a similar presentation at the “CuraçaoHuis” in The Hague in collaboration with the Cabinet of the Plenipotentiary Minister in The Hague. The goal was and is to attract businesses and individuals in the Netherlands to invest or do business in Willemstad.
