Kroon also invited other experts to take care of certain sections of the training. For the meeting in January Mr. Donald de Palm (SBTNO) promised all his cooperation.

The government of Curaçao is very pleased with the offer from the Themis Institute to provide the series free of charge.

As a result, the role of the statutory auditor, supervisor, but also the management, is becoming increasingly important," says Rudy Eleonora, chairman of the working group.

The first session was initiated by his deputy minister Steven Martina in the absence of Prime Minister Rhuggenaath. During his speech, Dr. Martina pointed out to participants the three most essential characteristics of good governance: integrity, transparency and a high level of responsibility.
