The study focuses on the development of the tourism sector and looks at the nature of the inter-sectoral linkages between the tourism sector and the agricultural sector in Suriname over the past thirty years (1980-2010). The choice for these particular sectors is based on similar distinct characteristics such as labor intensity, geographic and economic dispersion, large number of private entrepreneurs and firms.

This paper discusses the current stance of the international investment position (IIP) as a tool for detecting possible vulnerabilities in the financial structure of the Surinamese economy. The macroeconomic indicators by themselves indeed suggest a flourishing economy. But macroeconomic statistics do not provide sufficient signals of vulnerabilities underlying the economy.
