Country Report Curacao 4th Quarter

  • ID: 4876654
  • Country Profile
  • December 2019
  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

The ruling coalition led by the prime minister, Eugene Rhuggenaath of the Partido Antiá Restruktura, will face challenges in governing. It has only a slim legislative majority and a prolonged crisis in Venezuela presents a moderate risk to political stability on the island.

The Economist Intelligence Unit expects progress on fiscal consolidation and tackling corruption to be gradual and subject to opposition.

The Kingdom Council of the Netherlands will continue to provide fiscal supervision to Curacao and help the government to rein in fiscal imbalances. Despite Dutch support, a high public debt/GDP ratio (of over 50%) will continue to add an element of fiscal risk.
