Regarding other types of business permits such as driver, overplacing, amendment of land and intrekking, Minister Wever, through DEACI, granted 736 (62%) permits in this category in the period from January 2023 to August 2023 

In October 2022 Minister Geoffrey Wever introduced the new business permit policy which among other things aims to speed up the permit granting process by eliminating various requirements, fully digitize the permit application system and stimulate promising sectors, investment in downtown Oranjestad and San Nicolas etc. The new policy also aims to issue permits within a two-week period. Minister Geoffrey Wever thanks DEACI for ensuring that business permits are issued efficiently and quickly and also for continuously compiling all information on the business permit process
