Aruba International offshore banks


Oranjestad, Aruba
Oranjestad, the capital of Aruba.

Tourism, financial and business services, including offshore banking, as well as oil refining and storage make up the mainstay of the Aruban economy. However, tourism is the majority economic earner of the island.

The rapid growth of the tourism sector over the last decade has resulted in a substantial expansion of other activities. Construction has boomed, with hotel capacity five times the 1985 level. In addition, the reopening of the country's oil refinery in 1993, a major source of employment and foreign exchange earnings, has further spurred growth.

Aruba's small labor force and less than 6.9% (2005 est.) unemployment rate have led to a large number of unfilled job vacancies, despite sharp rises in wage rates in recent years. Foreign workers make up38% of the employed population (2007 est.)
