New Post Curacao will not deliver post on Caribbean Netherlands islands

WILLEMSTAD – Starting January 1, New Post Inc will no longer deliver mail on Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba (The BES-islands), this despite the fact that Minister Henk Kamp has signed the concession with the company for another year.

According to the Director of New Post Franklin Sluis there is absolutely no question of a concession. After the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles (10-10-10) was the agreement with the former Netherlands Antilles extended. No new concession was received by the Dutch Ministry, so that cannot be continued. The postal service on the BES islands is a heavy loss. Compensation must be included in a new concession. According to Sluis, right now the opposite is the care: the postal service must pay the concession fees to the Netherlands. This is about 100.000 guilders.
