Come along and discover the massive opportunities for your company in the heart of the Caribbean.

Why Participate?

Gain insight into the opportunities for Dutch entrepreneurs in smart developments in technology & retail as well as sustainable growth possibilities of businesses focused on tourism.

Saint Martin is mainly dependent on tourism (80% of the economy and about four-fifths of the labor force is engaged in this sector). For more than two centuries, the main commodity exports have generally been salt and locally grown commodities, like sugar.

As an island in the Caribbean SeaSaint Martin enjoys the kind of weather and natural geography that supports tourism. Its proximity to the rest of the Caribbean has also provided economic benefits with its largest airport, Princess Juliana International Airport on the Dutch Sint Maarten side, serving as the main gateway to the Leeward Islands. The larger post-Panamax cruise ships made regular stops to the island. The island offers duty-free shopping and there are few business restrictions to hinder growth. Though the French and Dutch parts differ slightly in terms of their economies and types of tourists, they share the Caribbean’s largest lagoon, which is frequented by yachts.

Both sides of the island largely depend on tourism, but the French part of the island is falling behind economically, as the main airport, casinos and facilities for larger cruise ships are located on the Dutch part of the island. St. Maarten is a major destination for large cruise ships in the Caribbean.

Network expanded with relevant parties, with a view to doing business and collaboration.

Take the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from one of the fast re-growing sectors in St Martin.
