About NECS

The National Export Center Suriname (NECS) is an organization that partners with Discover Suriname. The director of NECS is mr. Pierre van Zichem. The NECS organization focuses on stimulating local production of fruits and vegetables in Suriname, connecting the various parties involved and increasing regional export to the Carribean Community.

Export Readiness Services

There are many companies in Suriname not reaching their full production and export potential. They do not have the required export permits or certifications or do not know how to export or how big the export market is. Many companies are not visible world wide because they do not have a website, or they do not have English brochures. Also various companies try to export without a plan.

Are you a producer or exporter and want to know more about certification for export, want to increase your production, write a production plan and export plan?

NECS and various consultants in Suriname offer training and consulting about:

  • Product marketing
  • English website for your company (with correct contact data)
  • Certification
  • Writing a business plan
  • Writing a production plan
  • Writing an export plan
  • Improve and increase production
  • Improve supply chain processes
  • Improve and increase export
  • Improve professional business communication

For more information contact NECS (Pierre van Zichem), Ruud Souverein and Swami Girdhari.

Getting ready for export not so much having budget to invest, it is mostly about having the drive and motivation to become one of the best Surinamese companies and lead they way to a new Suriname.

In order to provide insights in the quality, such as continuity and reliability of these companies, we provide an Export Readyness Checklist. Companies can voluntary fill out this checklist and publish it on their website.
