It’s always a pleasure to greet you in the opening pages of Business View Caribbean. This publication of ours is a labor of love put together each month by our dedicated team of professionals in sales, marketing, business development, research, communications, editorial, IT, and creative design.
Like any company, we have our ups and downs, our challenges and successes, our mistakes and our apologies. We take the time for introspection, for group discussions, for brainstorming, for celebrating, and then just getting on with the job at hand. For us, that means producing an entertaining, enlightening, and educating magazine that you will want to peruse cover to cover and, perhaps, look back on as a resource during different stages of your own business and leadership journey.
The cover story of this latest edition of BV Caribbean highlights Venequip Curacao, an equipment distributor that brings their machinery, human talent, and infrastructure to service projects contributing to the growth and construction of Curacao.

Travel & Tourism is rebounding with gusto this year and 2023 looks to be even better. Of particular note, passengers travelling by air are in good hands thanks to the British Virgin Islands Airports Authority (BVIAA) that owns and operates all airports within the BVI. They oversee connectivity to hundreds of domestic and international destinations with daily flights to the most popular major cities in the Caribbean. When it comes time to relax and rejuvenate, Papagayo Beach Resort in Willemstad, Curacao is a destination of choice, where you can experience five-star luxe in a gorgeous, worry-free setting. Now that’s something we can all appreciate these days!
Lots of inspiration here, my friends. Sit back and enjoy the read!
