(Het einde van de slavernij vond plaats in 1863, dit betekende vrijheid voor de zwarte bevolking. Dit was ook het einde van de vele economische activiteiten die afhankelijk waren van slavenarbeid. Aan de periode van deze economische stagnatie kwam een eind met de vondst van olie voor de kust van Venezuela. Een nieuw tijdperk begon voor Curaçao en Aruba. In 1914 startte Shell met de exploitatie van aardolie in Venezuela. Op 23 mei 1918 wordt de raffinaderij van Koninklijke Olie op Curaçao in bedrijf gesteld. De bedrijvigheid en de werkgelegenheid nemen explosief toe. De economie van Curaçao berust thans hoofdzakelijk op drie pijlers, te weten de verwerking van ruwe olie, de toeristenindustrie en de dienstverlening.)
