How we work

Understand what your need is

We are convinced that we only come to useful solutions if we really understand what your need is. That is why we take the time to understand the task and the context precisely. Then we get started.

Independent and involved

You want us to think along, but not for us to be carried away. With intensive involvement, and with an independent view, we help you to tackle problems without tunnel vision.

Solutions that help further

To us, results of advanced analyses are not an end, but a means to an end. We ensure that analytical results are of help to you. By converting them into practical solutions with feasible plans. And by helping with the implementation. We can also make experts available for to help you with the implementation.

Our work does not stop with a report

Our involvement does not stop with a report. A report that matters gets things moving. Moreover, during implementation of recommendations, you will need reflection. That is why we are also there for you when the assignment is completed.


Evaluation of the Competition law and authority in Curaçao: achieved results and future improvements

Amsterdam Bureau for Economics evaluated the Lvic and the FTAC in the period 2016-2023 on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Development of Curaçao. The evaluation shows that the FTAC is an active, professional competition watchdog that has done a lot in its young existence in educating the private sector and the population, providing information and developing internal and external procedures. Partly because of its short existence and declining budgets, hard results that are noticeable to the population have so far been limited.
