Economy

The Dutch Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure actively supports the island’s leadership in creating an economically viable island.

The goal of the Ministry is to create economic opportunities through infrastructural development and nature conservation. In the effort to develop St. Eustatius’ economic maturity, the objective has been, and continues to be, one of striking a balance between sustainable economy, preservation of nature and spatial development.

At the core of Statia’s economic policy is a vision focused on a highly entrepreneurial sector, which fuels economic transformation through innovation, creativity and high performance.

The Directorate of Economy, Nature and Infrastructure (ENI) supports enterprises through low threshold business registration, and attractive tax structures.
