In 2030 Curaçao stays in the doughnut in the following way. Curaçao boasts a creative, innovative, and knowledgeable pool of talent, both locally and globally. These resources, along with the further development of the Information Communication Telecommunication (ICT) infrastructure, will be the economic backbone of the island.
Curaçao in 2030 has advanced manufacturing and production stimulated by the government using local materials such as aquatic sea materials. The country has a well-organized supply chain and transport system. The country makes use of the reference to its name “cura” or healing and offers wellness and healing to tourists who travel to the island making use of a sophisticated health travel system because of the Islands holistic and advanced healthcare system.
In 2030 there is much more involvement of local capital (investments) in local development, like in agriculture and energy.
The local economy is the basis for export. Curaçao has a healthy import/export economy. Most food and beverage are locally sourced. The inhabitants of Curaçao have developed the natural resources of the island and the local talent to create desirable goods and services for the local population and international demands.
Personal capacities of the Curaçao people have boosted the economy, making Curaçao a unique island where the individual well-being is part of the economy. The island has shorter workweeks , and there is a shift from working for large corporate companies to working in small networks of SME’s
Key sectors to focus on in the short-term include the following:
• ICT cluster
• Center for Education (Transnational Education)
• Harbor (logistics)
o maritime sector
o Cross-sector: maritime logistical sector
• Tourism (niche)
• Creative industry
• Financial Services
While this would be an excellent outcome, it is important to note that the future is about cross-sector innovation over all the borders of these traditional sectors and others who still must be identified.
