Suriname has experienced high growth rates in the past; yet the country has been plagued by boom and bust cycles, which have mainly stemmed from volatility in the income from mining. The economy is very dependent on exports of bauxite and oil, and more recently, gold in addition. As international prices for these commodities have gone up and down, so did the revenue for the country. The first impact has always been delivered on the government finances, and deficits emerged.

Suriname is rapidly capturing the attention of the global community from impressive economic performance and an ambitious social economic policy agenda.
