GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – Member of Parliament (MP) L.F.E. Mercelina, during a private visit to the Netherlands to attend a medical symposium, made use of the opportunity to pay a visit to the Cabinet of the Minister Plenipotentiary on the Bezuidenhoutseweg in The Hague.
After a brief tour of the premises, the MP sat with both the Minister and Deputy Minister where he was informed about the different plans, processes and the activities at the Cabinet in The Hague.
After being informed of the above, the MP in an invited comment stated that he sees the added value of the Cabinet as a direct contributor to the relationship between the island and the Netherlands in particular and to the Kingdom in general.
The MP also noted that the Cabinet of the Minister Plenipotentiary in the Netherlands does not receive the recognition it deserves and that the Government of Sint Maarten should engage on a deeper level with the Cabinet as this institution is the first frontier where it pertains to direct and transparent communication with the island of Sint Maarten on Kingdom level.
