SGD wants Delta plan for Caribbean area

Dutch ParliamentWILLEMSTAD, THE HAGUE - With a ‘Delta Plan Caribbean Area’ the islands in the Dutch Caribbean must again take the lead in fighting corruption and getting their finances in order. This is what the Dutch MPs of the SGP party presented today during the budget debate of the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations in the Lower House of the Dutch Parliament.

"If you already you let these problems work on you then it becomes, according to the SGP faction, time for a sort of a delta plan for security, justice and finance for the Caribbean,” said SGP MP Roelof Bishop, who included a reference to corruption in St. Maarten. "What we often do is to react to things that happen. A delta plan is intended to take the lead a lot more and to prevent certain things from happening.”
