Suriname Society

Suriname is a multicultural society where different population groups have been living in harmony with each other for centuries.

Most population groups came to Suriname generations ago to build a new life. The original population of Suriname (indigenous people) formed a minority today. According to a recent census there would be approximately 350,000 Surinamese living in the Netherlands.


On an area of 165,000 km², about 500,000 inhabitants, live in the coastal area (almost 400 kilometers long)

There are 563,189 people living in Suriname. This is an increase of approximately 12% compared to the 2004 census.

The official language is Dutch

In addition, no fewer than twenty languages are spoken in Suriname. The languages most commonly spoken in Suriname are:

  • Dutch (Nederlands)
  • Surinamese (Sranantongo)

  • The different Maroon languages (especially Saramaccan and Aukan)
  • Chinese (Hakka, Mandarin and Cantonese).
