Thank you for your interest in Aruba
The Aruban government wants to stimulate sustainable economic development in which the citizens and the natural environment will play a prominent role. One of the goals to achieve this is to diversify Aruba’s economy through six Promising Sectors. The Promising Sectors can be summarized in the following: Tourism, Knowledge Economy, Agriculture, Logistics, Circular Economy and Creative Industries. Aruba wants investments that are highly skilled, capital intensive, export oriented and foster innovation. We are working towards becoming a sustainable island and would like to welcome projects and investors who can contribute in this.
