Businesses and Foundations invited to be part of Webinar Social Economy

ORANJESTAD - Many local companies have been involved with volunteer and community work to help those in need during the pandemic.

Social and traditional businesses operating in Aruba did their utmost effort to quickly adapt their way of doing business and started using WhatsApp, delivery service, and other social methods as part of their operations.

On November 4, 2020, Minister Xiomara Maduro and the Department of Economic Affairs, Commerce, and Industry, stakeholders from Mayotte, Greenland, and the European Commission will be hosting a webinar specifically for the traditional and social businesses, including foundations. The objective of the Webinar is to find out more about the way social businesses have adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic. How they continued to generate economic activity and employment, but also applied the social and environmental component in their business model.

This Webinar starts at 9:00 am and will bring local businesses together with others from 

other Overseas Countries and Territories (LGO’s) and ultra-peripheral regions (UPG’s) like Greenland and Mayotte. Participants can hear the best practices from others so they can incorporate the best social components in similar business models. On the other hand, we can show the European Commission that Aruba is part of serious cooperation with other LGO’s and UPG’s and to take advantage of the resources made available by the European Union for Social Businesses.

The Webinar’s title, COVID-19: Social Economy, an opportunity to transform the Europe of the Sea, is available for everyone interested in this subject, especially companies and foundations who want to get to know more ways to contribute to their community, in balance with the business aspect.

Please register on: or find the link on Idea-Aruba or Department of Economic Affairs DEACI on Facebook or send email to Mrs. Zulema Dabian-Erasmus available on for more information.
