GOVERNMENT FINANCE AND BEYOND, WHO CAN BRING THE ECONOMY BACK IN MOTION?

Luncheon lecture by Prof. dr. Age Bakker

Upon request of the “Vereniging Bedrijfsleven Curaçao “, professor Age Bakker held a lecture on the economic situation of Curaçao on Friday September 5, 2014 (click here).

Professor Bakker is the Chairman of the “Board financial supervision for Curaçao and Sint Maarten” (College financieel toezicht Curaçao en Sint Maarten – Cft).

From the lecture:

When Curaçao became a country four years ago, expectations ran high. What then followed was something like a false start. Disappointment was great.

But this is the way how countries grow. I believe much has been learned and time has come for a new start. Outside observers like the IMF predict positive economic growth for the first time since Curaçao became a country on its own.

Better be part of it than stand on the side!
