That is the core of the change in supervision by the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten (CBCS). “Focused means that we have a quick overview of the most important problems and shortcomings in supervision and know which institution or institutions are affected, so that we can take targeted action before there is any damage,” said the explanation. By penetrating we mean that we intervene quickly and firmly and continue to push for improvements until they are actually realized. There is more: “Intrusive also means that the CBCS takes increasingly strict supervisory measures if the repair by the institution takes too long.” The Central Bank says it does this “in a consistent manner” with “extra attention to clear communication of our expectations” through consultation, practical guidance and policy statements. “This makes us more predictable in our actions and as a learning organization we are open to feedback.” This is stated in the brochure “New Style”

Relationship COHO – Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations and government
According to the proposal, the COHO appears to perform its tasks with a high degree of independence. Large parts of the Independent Administrative Bodies Framework Act have been declared applicable. This does not alter the fact that on a number of important points the proposal gives the Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations the authority to issue instructions or to limit or complete the powers of the COHO. For example, the Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations can determine how the COHO should spend financial resources made ava

The MFK Victory Has Been Confirmed In Curacao. More Head Aches For Holland
State Secretary Knops must have turned white when he heard the results of the Parliamentary elections in Curaçao at breakfast on Saturday. It was expected that the government parties PAR and MAN would lose ground. But that the victory of the MFK based on anti-Dutch sentiments with 9 out of 21 seats would turn out so great, he could not have imagined in his darkest nightmare.
A petition sent to the United Nations requesting two of its bodies to investigate “systemic discrimination, and racism perpetrated against the people of St. Maarten” has been met with loud rhetoric and threats from three opposition members of Parliament and Dutch Parliamentarians, respectively.

The Netherland’s decision to temporarily deny liquidity support resulted from an ongoing political disagreement between the two governments on the pace of domestic policy reform in Sint Maarten. The delays in providing liquidity support also highlighted Sint Maarten’s limited funding options and amplified the challenges posed by Sint Maarten’s growing funding requiremen
