The changing face
The changing face of Suriname 1968-2008
By the end of the 20th century and at the dawn of the 21st, Suriname is once again reinventing itself by slowly moving away from a primary materials-based economy towards a service-driven economy with eco-tourism as an important growth industry. Although this transformation will take time, and Suriname is only at the beginning of this process, it is once again Kersten which is taking the lead and serving as an example of Surinamese innovation and executing power. To better serve its customers and the community at large, Kersten redefined its companies and its products by aligning them into “Divisions” that focus not on individual products, but on delivering “Solutions” to her customers. These divisions have been launched successfully and are moving along the spectrum towards delivering the “Total Solutions” package that only Kersten can provide.
