This agreement forms the guideline for the 2021-2025 government period of the cabinet MFK / PNP that is yet to take office. Pisas spoke of “a historic moment when the world is beginning to realize that the new government is going to change the course of the country.”

The ministers and members of Parliament cannot simply reverse the reduction on their salary that has been applied as a result of the liquidity support from the Netherlands.
The moment of expiry must in any case be after June 30, 2023, as stated in two Memorandum of Amendment (NvW) with the same purport to the National Ordinances on Financial Provision of Ministers and States. The NvW sets several conditions for the possible reversal of the salary discount.
Knops 6) Repairs started at 3 priority schools. Tender For 3 in prep. Remaining 13 Will Follow World Bank and SXM Restructuring Agreement Additional funding required
The tender for the next three schools is in preparation. The remaining 13 schools will follow the restructuring of the agreement between the World Bank and Sint Maarten.

Knops 5: 7.2 million available for the implementation of the coral restoration plan Dutch Sint Maarten
You’re going to have to invest in that. As part of the Envelope region, we have made 7.2 million available for the implementation of the coral restoration plan. Another part that is currently running, also with tourism organizations, is certifying destinations and tourist locations as Blue Destination destination.
Knops 4: “Sometimes you have to maneuver around something to get to the target… With Sint Maarten, that was just much more complicated.”
State Secretary Knops:
I do not think it helps in the relationship between two countries the charges just mentioned, namely elements such as doubting the intentions and placing things in the perspective of postcolonial et cetera. That makes it all complicated. Sometimes you have to maneuver around something to get to the target. In a relationship in which there are only two countries in the Kingdom, one of which has a problem as a result of a natural disaster, you hope to be able to organize it differently.
Knops 3: With The Airport, There Was A Lack Of ‘Political Will’, At The Dump And Vromi, A Lack Knowledge, Expertise & Execution Powers
But we saw, for example, at the airport that there was a lack of political will; Let me put it this way. With the dump, it is also an issue that the knowledge and expertise are hardly available and that there was no follow-up. The ministries responsible, the Ministry of VROMI in this case, did not have sufficient execution power to be able to do so themselves. So you can have a very capable World Bank with all the technical expertise, but if on the other side of the partnership one is insufficiently receptive or does not have enough knowledge to be able to respond to it, then it does not work. That balance has to be sought. We may have thought too easily

For The RMR The Question To Sint Maarten Is Simple: Does Jacob’s Government & Especially The States Still Support The National Package & The Coho Process, Or Are They Backing The Petition to the UN? The Correct Answer Can Mean An Instant 39 million guilders, For St Maarten’s liquidity needs for the second quarter of 2021.
do the Jacobs government and especially the States still support the approved National Package and the Coho process, or are they sticking to the opposed petition to the UN? The correct answer to the question can immediately yield 39 million guilders, the liquidity needs of the island for the second quarter of 2021. But first, there is sufficient clarity about the position of the States, according to the RMR in The Hague.
With regard to Aruba, it can expect 237 million florins for the coming months, but not just like that. Provided and after Aruba has signed the second Implementation Agenda (for the second quarter).
Curaçao also has homework.
Is Coho Act in conflict with the Statute of the Kingdom or not?
Is the draft governmental law for the establishment of the Caribbean body for reform and development contrary to the Statute of the Kingdom or not?
After studying the advice of the Council of State, many come to the conclusion that the far-reaching power that the Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations allocates to the body and himself touches the heart of the autonomy of Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten. The creator of the bill, State Secretary Knops, is one of the few, if not the only one who thinks otherwise. This is evident from the letter he sent to the Lower House on Friday:
“I do not consider it pure in this letter to dwell in detail on the content of th
The Advisory Board (RvA) of Curaçao Judges Sides With Minister Knops Concerning COHO, Disagrees With MP Rolando Brison And Cohorts
The Advisory Board (RvA) of Curaçao Judges that the correct procedural path has been taken to arrive at the Kingdom Act on the Caribbean Body for Reform and Development (Coho). But, it is also judged: “Strictly speaking, the powers of the government and Parliament will also be limited in this amended proposal (with respect to the CHE, ed.).” This is evident from the recently made public judgment of the RvA of 21 December 2020. Although there has been little room for negotiation with the Netherlands, the RvA itself concludes, it appears from the amended bill of law (which was previously CHE) , but also from the way in which the Explanatory Memorandum (Explanatory
Raymond Knops expected to offer an amended Coho proposal plus “further report” to the Lower House and the States of Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten before the summer recess.
The State Secretary indicates that this further report “and a Coho proposal amended on the basis thereof” requires approval from all four countries. “As soon as agreement has been reached on this in the Council of Ministers of the Kingdom, the further report, together with the legislative proposal that accompanies it, will be sent to the States of Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten and the House of Representatives. The aim is to do this before the summer recess. ”
Once agreement has been reached on the further report, the parliamentary debate on the proposal will commence. In the run-up to this, Knops would like to point out “that the core of the legislative proposal remains intact” in the advice of the Council of State.
