SXC visits Council of Minister

SXCWILLEMSTAD – Mr. Ben Droste, founder of the Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) paid a courtesy visit to the Council of Ministers. The objective of the visit was to give the Government a presentation about the space travel project. After the presentation, the Ministers had the opportunity to ask questions to Mr. Droste.

One of the conclusions of the meeting was that this project has some risk which the Government can’t control but at the same time it’s a project which can make Curacao the first country outside of the United States where it is possible to travel to space. The Government indicated that they will continue working on presenting a bill proposal to Parliament for approval. This bill is to make commercial space traveling possible. The Government has also indicated that they will not invest public funds in the SXC project.
