Curacao Free Zone Strategy


Client: CURINDE

For the operator of a successful commercial free zone in Curaçao, CARANA prepared a feasibility study for a new airport zone. The study included a market analysis that examined

  • different trends both from the end user and supplier perspective;
  • in-depth interviews with potential customers in Latin America and Europe;
  • profiles of principal competitors in the US and Latin America;
  • a comparison/ranking of various market strategies available to the client;
  • a review and analysis of potential sites for a new free zone; and
  • a financial and economic analysis of the viability of a new free zone.

The results of the analysis were incorporated into a final report recommending an implementation strategy focused on possible sources of financing, potential partners, and prospective tenants.
