Fruit import also now from Dominican Republic

10700103_10204035820469481_203166950620143701_oWILLEMSTAD – Fruit and vegetables are now available on the island again. This is after a container arrived yesterday. These fruits and vegetables were imported from the Dominican Republic.

According to Gerrit Schotte, in a letter to the press, he’s the one who arranged the agreement with the government of the Dominican Republic and the plantation owners in that Caribbean country.

Schotte also said in his letter that from now on there will be fruits at an affordable price and on a regular basis here on the island. “Even though I’ve been in the opposition for some time now, I still work in the interest of the people in Curaçao.” In the letter, the MFK leader states that this is a major achievement thanks to the will of the local merchants, their political leader and the Government of the Dominican Republic, who wants more integration within the Caribbean.

Schotte indicates that the results of his efforts are now fruits and vegetables at a more affordable price, e.g. pineapple for 3.50 guilders, bananas for 0.50 cents each, watermelon for 1 guilder per kilo, melon for 2 guilders per kilo and more.

“This is the real social face of a political leader who works for his community,” Schotte said.
