Abundance is one of the prime characteristics of the country Suriname. The richness of its natural setting, in the middle of tropical rainforests and mighty rivers, is mirrored in its multi-ethnic population and exquisite, varied cuisine. Suriname is situated just north of the Equator, with French Guyana to its east, Guyana to its west and Brazil to its south while the northern border is formed by its Atlantic coast. This former Dutch colony became independent in 1975 and is currently the only Dutch-speaking region in the Western Hemisphere outside the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In spite of the country’s touristic potential, its economy is still heavily dependent on mining and the export of aluminium oxide. In Suriname there is much to be explored: in terms of its business opportunities as well as the country’s natural beauty and rich cultural and historical heritage.
