Project cleanup national population register nearing completion

KranshiWILLEMSTAD - The project to clean up the population register of Kranshi (Registrar’s Office) is almost complete. This was announced by Minister Etienne van der Horst (Government Service). The intention is to have a public records database available from which the government can retrieve information. It is therefore important that the data is up-to-date and reliable.

"Anyone who is erroneously listed in the file needs to be removed," said project member and former director of the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) Raymond 'Pacheco' Römer. These are people who are no longer resident in Curaçao but have not declared this to the registrar.

In Curaçao there are streets that have no name or buildings which do not have a number. “The Department of Planning and Urban Development started with a project to optimize all the addresses on the island,” according to Römer. “They have been around Curaçao and have mapped everything geographically. Currently they are busy with all the streets which have no names. This also applies to homes and buildings without numbers." Römer hopes that the population registry will be cleaned up early next year and can be taken into use.
