Netherlands foreign minister to discuss ties between Dutch islands and CARICOM

Ties between the Dutch islands and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) will be discussed at the Kingdom of the Netherlands level, according to a report of the Kingdom delegation activities in late September in New York during the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations. The Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders sent the report to the Dutch House of Representatives on Friday. Currently, Aruba, Curacao and St Maarten have observer status with CARICOM. During the UN meeting, Koenders, together with the Aruban prime minister, Mike Eman, and the then prime minister of St Maarten, Marcel Gumbs, spoke with CARICOM officials. Established in 1973, CARICOM is an organization of 15 Caribbean nations and dependencies. CARICOM’s main purposes are to promote economic integration and cooperation among its members, to ensure that the benefits of integration are equitably shared, and to coordinate foreign policy. Its major activities involve coordinating economic policies and development planning; Currently, discussions are underway about the accession of Cuba and the Dominican Republic to the regional bloc.
