The company was initially relatively successful; in the 1620s and 1630s, many trade posts or colonies were established. The largest success for the WIC in its history was the seizure of the Spanish silver fleet, which carried silver from Spanish colonies to Spain, by Piet Heyn (Piet Hein (Netherlands)) in 1628; privateering was at first the most profitable activity. In 1629 the WIC gave permission to a number of investors in New Netherlands to found patroonships. The New Netherland area, which included New Amsterdam, covered parts of present-day New York, Connecticut, Delaware, and New Jersey. Other settlements were established on the Netherlands Antilles, several other Caribbean islands, Suriname and Guyana. In Africa, posts were established on the Gold Coast (Dutch Gold Coast) (now Ghana) and briefly in Angola. It was a neo-feudal system, where patrons were permitted considerable powers to control the overseas colony. In the Americas, fur (North America) and sugar (South America) were the most important trade goods, while African settlements traded slaves—mainly destined for the plantations on the Antilles and Suriname—gold, and ivory. The company was the dominant slave trading entity of the time, and probably in all of history. http: breakingthesilence slave_routes slave_routes_netherlands.shtml *Netherlands East Indies – A collection of Dutch (Netherlands) colonies, officially since the end of the Napoleonic Wars, up to 1799 controlled by the Dutch East India Company but occupied and administered by the British (British Empire) in an interregnum during the Napoleonic Wars under the authority of the Kew Letters.

Two neighbours have longstanding territorial disputes with Guyana. Since the 19th century, Venezuela has claimed all of Guyana west of the Essequibo River — 62% of Guyana's territory. At a meeting in Geneva in 1966, the two countries agreed to receive recommendations from a representative of the UN Secretary General on ways to settle the dispute peacefully. Diplomatic contacts between the two countries and the Secretary General's representative continue.

'''Suriname''' ( ), is a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered (Borders of Suriname) by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south.

Suriname was colonized by the English and the Dutch (Dutch Republic) in the 17th century. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana (Surinam (Dutch colony)) until 1954. At that time it was designated as one of the constituent countries (constituent country) of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, next to the Netherlands and the Netherlands Antilles (dissolved (dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles) in 2010). On 25 November 1975, the country of Suriname (Suriname (Kingdom of the Netherlands)) left the Kingdom of the Netherlands to become independent (independence). A member of CARICOM (Caribbean Community), it is considered to be a culturally Caribbean country and has extensive trade and cultural exchange with the Caribbean nations.

At just under , Suriname is the smallest sovereign state in South America. (French Guiana, while less extensive and populous, is an overseas department of France.) Suriname has a population of approximately 566,000, most of whom live on the country's north coast, where the capital Paramaribo is located. Suriname is a mostly Dutch (Dutch language)-speaking country; Sranang (Sranan Tongo), an English (English language)-based creole language (English creole), is a widely used ''lingua franca''. It is the only independent entity in the Americas where Dutch is spoken by a majority of the population.
