Prime Minister Leona Romeo-Marlin currently attending meetings related to the 16th OCTA–EU Forum

SINT MAARTEN/BELGUIM - On February 23rd the 16th OCTA (Overseas Countries and Territories Association) – EU (European Union) Forum will be held in Brussels, leading up to the forum there will be political and technical meetings with the European Commission and other Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) of the EU.

The Sint Maarten delegation headed by Prime Minister Leona Romeo-Marlin, attended two meetings on Monday. The first meeting was held at the EU Directorate of Development Cooperation and consisted of a trilateral discussion on the ongoing progress of EU funded programmes.

The second meeting consisted of discussions among the Kingdom Partners on the relationship between the EU and the other Dutch OCTs after 2020 and was held at the office of the Permanent Representative of the Netherlands in Brussels.

During the trilateral meeting Prime Minister Romeo Marlin had the opportunity to present four points. The 10th EDF Territorial Project, which confirms the finalization of the programming of a Dutch Quarter sewerage and public infrastructure project.

The contract for the works will be signed on Wednesday, February 20th to the tune of 4.7 million Euro. This signing ensures that the execution phase will begin in 2018.

Second on the agenda was the 11th EDF Territorial Cooperation Project that consists of three joint projects between the Governments of Sint Maarten and St. Martin.

These three projects include a waste water treatment plant to be established on the Dutch Side with waste water pipes running from both sides of the island to the plant. The second project will entail a cleanup and economic development of the Simpson Bay Lagoon. The third project will cover the connecting of a drainage system runoff to the French Belle Plaine area to avoid possible flooding in those low lying areas.

Agenda point three addressed 11th EDF – B Envelope which is a request by the Government of Sint Maarten in relation to the recovery after hurricanes Irma and Maria.

A request for 10 million euro to build adequate, affordable and sustainable housing is pending and was further explained to the European Commission. Beneficiaries of this housing will include vulnerable groups such as the elderly, single parent families and low income earners that may have been displaced after the passing of Hurricane Irma.

Locally, the Council of Ministers has signed off on the Housing Project which will lead to the project being prepared and ultimately proposed to the European Union. This housing project will aid in the reconstruction efforts.

The final and fourth agenda targeted unused funds of the 10th EDF Regional Programme. An amount of 2-3 million euros has not been used and the European Commission is looking in to the possibility to reactivate this sum for a sub-regional project to aid Small & Medium Enterprises.

These are considered the backbone of the economic prosperity in most islands, and it is intended to use the funds for building resilience across the small business sector. The project will be a shared effort by the OCTs that are suffering damages from the 2017 hurricane season.

The meeting at the Permanent Representation of the Netherlands highlighted the debate on the relationship of the Dutch OCTs with the EU after the end of the current financial framework of the EU.

The discussion centered around how The Netherlands can include the OCTs in the negotiations on the future financial cooperation between the Kingdom Partners and the EU. Important was the issue of Brexit and how this affects the position of the Dutch OCTs in the post 2020 negotiations.

Politically, the Prime Minister of Curacao, Eugene Rhuggenaath, spoke on behalf of the Dutch OCT’s by presenting a unified position among the Caribbean part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in looking for a mutually beneficial partnership between the latter and the EU.

2018 Hurricane Season Preparations Start

SINT MAARTEN/CARIBBEAN – Two Caribbean countries and territories have commenced preparations for the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season. The Government of the British Virgin Islands BVI (Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke) has initiated a plan to prepare for what has already been forecasted to be another active hurricane season based on preliminary findings in December 2017.

The BVI suffered catastrophic damage from Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017. The islands have a population of approximately 30,000 according to a United Nations 2016 estimate.

Residents and business owners are being advised to use the time now to get their homes and business establishments repaired and hurricane-ready.

The BVI Department of Disaster Management stated that preparations are being made to inspect emergency shelters that were officially designated in 2017. The BVI Public Works Department and the Environmental Health Division are also part of this process.

Repairs have already started on critical facilities, and preparatory work is also taking place with road works moving ahead, gut clearing and water restoration services.

The BVI Disaster Management Office has appealed to residents to reflect on what occurred last September and use the opportunity to commence their preparations early.

The Government of Dominica has started to prepare for the next hurricane season. Last September, Hurricane Maria caused catastrophic damage of over US$900 million. Electricity has been restored to only 10 per cent of customers.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.

Over the years, the organizers of the Power Hour have created other experiences, with their partners, to cater to the varying target groups of entrepreneurs, such as Dominate The Runway, which focused on creative entrepreneurs in fashion through the Caribbean, IP IMPACT focused on intellectual property for small medium enterprises (SME’s), and DOMINATE 360 the international event to help start-up entrepreneurs and innovators from the region to achieve unparalleled success.

Detention extended for MP F.G.R. and businessman J.H.B. by eight days

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – The Public Prosecution Service announced on Friday, February 16, that two suspects detained in connection with the Emerald investigation, namely Member of Parliament F.G.R. and businessman J.H.B., their detention has been extended by eight days.

On Friday, February 16, the two suspects were brought before the Judge of Instruction who reviewed documentation related to the case and stated that the arrests were done in accordance with the law.

ARCHIVE (FEBRUARY 14, 2018/INITIAL STORY) - The anti-corruption team TBO executed two searches in homes and one in a company on Sint Maarten, a joint press release from the Public Prosecution Service (OM) and the Anti-Corruption Unit said on Wednesday.

“Two suspects were arrested. One home was seized. The arrest of F.G. R. (1968) is the result of the research "Emerald", an investigation into fraud and corruption in the port of Sint Maarten. In that case, 7 suspects were still in session last week. In two of those cases the judge pronounces judgment on 22 February 2018.

“The other cases will be discussed further in the month of March of this year. The accused suspect is a member of the parliament on Sint Maarten, just like the suspect C.E. B., one of the seven suspects who were at court last week. F.G. R. is suspected of accepting bribes and tax fraud. F.G.R. is also suspected of participating in a criminal organization aimed at recruiting votes for itself.

“This investigation is run by the National Detective Agency of Sint Maarten (Landsrecherche Sint Maarten) under the direction of the Public Prosecutor's Office of Sint Maarten. On February 13, 2018 a search was conducted against him at an address in the Sucker Garden district and today 14 February 2018 at addresses on the French part, Saint Martin, including at the address of the defendant himself.

“Data carriers and administration were seized during the search. The second arrest concerns J.H. B. (1964) and emerged from the research "Larimar", an investigation into, among other things, the bribery of civil servants, (political) authorities and persons in the construction sector.

“Previous actions, including a search on January 24, 2018 at a construction company on Sint Maarten, led to this arrest. The defendant is the director of the construction company. In addition to these arrests, the TBO has also searched a company building in the same investigation today.

“The TBO has special attention on Sint Maarten after the destruction after hurricane Irma and regarding the reconstruction of Sint Maarten. TBO is alert to signs of corruption and fraud in both the public sector and the construction sector. The Public Prosecutor’s Office (OM) of Sint Maarten will be extra alert during the period up to the elections on signals of buying and selling votes ('vote buying'),” the joint press statement concludes.

Persons who have information about this are asked to contact the National Detective Agency (Landsrecherche Sint Maarten) - if necessary anonymously. This is possible via the telephone number: +1721-5225810.

PAID TRAINING OPPORTUNITY FOR PERSONS INTERESTED IN HOSPITALITY WORK

SINT MAARTEN (POND ISLAND) - Post hurricane Irma and Maria, Government continues to seek out ways to bridge the current economic and social gaps evolving in our community.

The Ministry of VSA and TEATT has partnered with the Sint Maarten Training Foundation (SMTF) to introduce a hospitality training program for persons working in the tourism sector. It is a paid training program with the objective to prevent mass layoffs in the hospitality industry.

“A successful St. Maarten always depends on its people.   The success of our work force in this training project will be a major factor in determining how well St. Maarten’s economy will rebound and its ability to compete with other countries in the region.” - Cornelius de Weever (Minister TEATT)

“As long as the tourism sector does not (fully) recover, programs need to be put in place which will help ensure the livelihood of persons. This project is one of the PIER’s (personal incentives for economic recovery) program which provides cash for temporary employment, training or education to underemployed and unemployed persons. We commend the initiators of the project which has presented a viable solution and opportunity for the vulnerable group of employees and employers; this is a true example of using a disaster as an opportunity to grow and become stronger.” – Emil Lee (Minister VSA)

It is a known reality that the majority of local business operations have been severely impacted. The hospitality industry of St. Maarten is a major employer and many would conclude that the pillar of our economy has been significantly hit. An anticipated consequence of this is mass dismissals and business closures.

Recognizing the opportunity to train, upgrade and enhance the skills of workers (or previous) in the hospitality industry for the boost of the tourism product; the Sint Maarten Training Foundation (SMTF) consequently initiated a hospitality training geared towards enhanced hospitality skills.

The subsidy granted allows this program to be sustainable for another 4 months with the possibility to train some 1350 persons. Government is committed to sustain this project throughout the recovery process and has been working in close collaboration with the World Bank and the Netherlands to ensure the program can be expanded once additional funding is made available. 

In exchange for work rendered or training undertaken, eligible individuals are provided with an income in the form of a stipend and keep their job in the hospitality sector. The cash-based approach not only encourages trade, production, and creates secondary economic benefits, but also allows people greater choice and control over how they will rebuild their lives, thus helping to restore their dignity as well as their livelihoods.

“This project will improve our service product and our hospitality sector as a whole and create stability on the labor market. This also safeguards the livelihoods of the vulnerable groups for instance women who aren’t easily mobilized into the construction industry.” – Emil Lee (Minister VSA)

The Project will be executed by the Sint Maarten Training foundation, for more information see the website: hospitalityfirst.sx or mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Further information on subscribing to the program will be published by the Sint Maarten Training Foundation. 

Government will continue to seek, develop and support similar types of training opportunities for other sectors within our economy. In aims that we truly recover and achieve the build back better as a community.

FRANKIE SAYS: “WE HAVE DONE IT BEFORE AND WE WILL DO IT AGAIN”

PHILIPSBURG - “Lots has been said in the last couple of months, but the sole reason for our motion of no confidence in the Marlin cabinet was to safeguard this Country from spiraling down in craters of irreparable economic catastrophe and human disaster”, United People Party’s (UP) deputy leader and number 3 candidate on the United Democrats (UD) list Frankie Meyers stated on Thursday in a press statement.

“Let’s take a step back in time: In 2010 we became a country within the kingdom while the World was still recovering from an economic crisis. However, the UPP/DP-led government successfully managed to increase tourist arrivals and thus provide income for our People.

“While islands around us saw a sharp decline in figures we managed to remain the leaders in our region. Then the unfortunate happened and in 2012 that government subsequently fell. Elections were not called as there was a new majority in Parliament that was willing to work together. This severely interrupted marketing strategies, restructuring of our tax system and dealing with the dump issue, just to name a few.

“When we then took office again we found our cash flow severely depleted, a non-existent marketing program for our one pillar tourism economy, the project offering solutions for the dump halted and our government owned companies being fleeced for pet projects.

“We got to work again and decided that we would build a new hospital and make it part of an overall strategy for diversification of our tourism product, including medical tourism and educational tourism (which would be a significant boost for our much troubled University). However, that too came to an end a little over a year. Whenever we were given a clear mandate the economy flourished!

“We successfully built a port, secured new airlines coming to St. Maarten, engaged in strategic marketing partnerships, got link 9 (causeway) built as part of the St. Maarten road infrastructure improvement (which was halted once again when NA took office) and so much more.

“More than ever, we need to have a clear mandate from the People of St. Maarten to quickly, yet structurally, rebuild our Island with urgent attention being placed on the immediate reconstruction of homes, re-employment of our People, and a waste to energy solution for the dump.

“We have done it in the past, our track record shows it. There is no time for experiments, not at the cost of the livelihood and wellbeing of our Country! We have done it before and we will do it again. Therefore, give the UD an outright majority to govern on February 26. Vote for yours truly, Frankie Meyers, number 3 on the UD slate.”
