    creates a positive impact on prices for real estate,
    especially in the tourist areas, where average
    property growth has been around 8 to 10 % per
    year. Why?

•   Aruba is a small island, limited in area and hence
    has limited land for development.

    Government, limiting development mostly on the
    remaining 15%, that is privately owned.

•   Five years ago the zoning law has been
    introduced limiting the overall commercial
    development on the island.

•   One of the Government’s important policy calls
    for sustained development where the economic
    growth must go hand in hand with the level of
    social development, the quality of infrastructure
    and in harmony with the environment.
