Stagnation in Curaçao’s export
By our international business intern: Jahir Valerius
The export figures of goods from Curaçao, show a negative tendency. As export development has been identified a priority by the Government, this created the need to take a closer look at this trend. The Division of Foreign Economic Cooperation of the Ministry of Economic Development being the entity responsible for economic development, has therefore requested International Business student, Jahir Valerius, to analyze the export results as part of his internship at the Ministry.
The determinant propellers for the Caribbean BPO
Industry players in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sector were definitely excited about the future after the panel discussion titled: ‘Propelling the Caribbean’s BPO industry forward’. The aspects of human capital, technology and the obstacles the Caribbean is confronting right now, were consistently present during all the dissertations.
The panel discussion was moderated by Karina Fernandez-Stark, a Senior Research analyst at the Duke University, and took place after the opening ceremony of the second ‘Outsource to the Caribbean Conference’ on May 9, 2019, in the ballroom of the Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort located on the island of Curaçao. The other panelists that joined Fernandez on that morning were: Vanessa Gibson, Yoni Epstein, Dawn Tiura and Dr. Sean Thorpe.
