Path to Market
Path to market, Negoshi Republika Dominikana i hopi mas is a tool at the disposal of Curaçao’s MSMEs to get information, training and support. Please join and let’s build a bridge for a successful future post-Covid-19.
The world is changing, and it requires for us to make adjustments both in our lives and in our businesses. Plans need to be revised and products and services need to be revamped. We all look forward to the post-COVID-19 time, when we will be able to resume our daily activities. While we go through this crisis, many business people are struggling, afraid for their business and livelihood and overwhelmed by the concerning news going around. Once this passes, we will be facing new challenges, and new challenges require new tools.
Since before the COVID-19 crisis, Curaçao Desk in the Dominican Republic – a joint effort of the Ministry of Economic Development of Curaçao and the Curaçao Investment & Export Promotion Agency (CINEX) – has been working in supporting and increasing business between Curaçao and the Dominican Republic. In spite of the current crisis, according to the World Bank, the DR market will be one of the least affected within Latin America and the Caribbean with an expected increase for 2021, which will put the country back to continue the path to growth it had for the past decade.
With a direct weekly route from Curaçao to DR, which has been working uninterruptedly, and a Partial Scope Agreement under negotiation, the DR continues to be a promising market. Therefore, we decided to continue with the launch of the product Path to Market: Negoshi Republika Dominikana. Aware of the fact that the crisis has affected all companies, especially MSMEs we have modified the program to adjust to assist MSMEs to thrive in a post-COVID-19 world.
