DH | Sneek gets answers on ‘Made in Statia’ queries

Koos Sneek | Persbureau Curacao

PHILIPSBURG–Independent Island Councilmember Koos Sneek has received answers from the Executive Council on queries he had made about Made in Statia.

Sneek had asked the Executive Council a number of written questions about Made in Statia and agriculture in general on March 11. Sneek said the answers received have clarified a number of things that were not clear to him and have contributed to the transparency in this matter.

Sneek posed the questions after visiting the Made in Statia project and being informed about the developments there. “I did not get the impression that the project is functioning as some want us to believe. Listening to management I could hear disappointment and a level of frustration about their situation and a perceived lack of interest or understanding from the part of government,” Sneek had said in his request for answers, noting that he had been seriously concerned.

In response to Sneek’s question on who is/are the legal owner(s) of the property in use by Made in Statia, the Executive Council said the legal owner is the public entity St. Eustatius. In response to the question on whose initiative was it to grant this particular parcel of land to be used by Made in Statia, government responded “the Island Executive Counsellors in the year 2011.”

The Executive Council also said the Island Executive Counsellors had signed the decree to lease/rent the land to Made in Statia.

A number of questions related to agriculture were also asked and responded to.
