Airbnb ink agreementIn order to promote Curacao as a top class tourist destination, the country has entered into an agreement with Airbnb. The agreement was signed by Curacao’s minister of economic development, Eugene Rhuggenaath, and the minister of finance, Kenneth Gijsbertha, on behalf of the government.

 

With this partnership, Airbnb will continue promoting tourism and highlighting Curacao’s history and culture. The strategy focuses on the diversification of the tourism industry and maintaining a balance with Curacao citizens and tourism.

 

Airbnb plays an important role in Curacao tourism industry, with one thousand listings across the island, and a typical host earns US$4,400 per year.

 

Airbnb’s representative for the Caribbean and Central America, Shawn Sullivan, stated “today’s agreement with the government of Curacao is a great example of how governments and the private sector can work together to achieve mutually desired goals. Curacao is an important and growing market for Airbnb and we are very excited to be working with the government to help grow sustainable tourism to the island.”

 

This partnership will also create a framework that will allow the government of Curacao and Airbnb to address issues such as taxes, host accommodation standards and regulations share aggregate data and support Curacao’s tourism marketing campaigns.
