Abstract Curaçao is an autonomous country
within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The government
wants to support tourism development. However,
various development strategies are possible. This article
presents four scenarios of marketing and investment
strategies that will affect the number of tourists from
The Netherlands and North America (USA and Canada)
in different ways. A multiplier model was used to calculate
the economic impacts of the four scenarios. By
doing so, this article shows how the government’s decision
to support particular marketing and investment
strategies may have certain outcomes for the number of
jobs in Curaçao’s tourism industry.
