The Virtual Business Matchmaking event is on November 9, 2023, at the Chamber of Commerce (KvK) and starts at 10:00 a.m.This event is a collaboration between the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the KvK.
After seeing the commercial potential during the trade mission in Colombia this year, the vision has been further strengthened to focus on establishing and building trade relations with our neighboring countries, with Venezuela also offering opportunities.
The goal is to connect Venezuelan exporters with local importers, especially in the food and construction materials industry. The government sees room to stimulate and facilitate business between Aruba and Venezuela as it benefits the consumers. They may enjoy better prices, more variety, and product availability.
Collaboration between partners in the region for the benefit of our traders and consumers remains a priority. Unfortunately, prices of food and construction products have risen in recent months, and this collaboration is a way to offer better prices to our citizens. The government thanks Mr. Gavril Mansur and the Chamber of Commerce for realizing this event, which exemplifies the potential collaboration between the private sector and the government.
