Curacao likely host for four party consultations with Suriname

POSTED: 07/6/11 1:20 PM

GREAT BAY\WILLEMSTAD – Parliamentary leadership from Curacao, Aruba, Suriname and St. Maarten have agreed to have an inter-parliamentary consultation later this year. Curacao is likely to be the host.

The meeting where parties agreed to have the consultation was held in Curacao on the sidelines of the Curacao Flag Day celebration. That meeting is a follow-up to a discussion that the President of Curacao’s Parliament Ivar Asjes had in Suriname on the sidelines of anniversary celebrations for the country’s National Assembly. Asjes chaired the June 2 gathering in Willemstad that also included the President of Aruba’s Parliament, 2nd Vice President of St. Maarten’s Parliament Patrick Illidge and the Chairman of Suriname’s National Assembly.

The actual decision to host the meeting is based on the interest expressed by the meeting’s attendees. They also agreed that the meeting should be held in Curacao. Aruba was initially to hold the next consultation for what was once a tri-partite consultation between the Netherlands Antilles, Aruba and Suriname, but has now, apparently yielded to Curacao.

There is no definitive date for the meeting as yet. October has been suggested, but is not a firm proposition because Her Majesty Queen Beatrix, Crown Prince Willem Alexander and Princess Maxima will be touring the Dutch Caribbean in that month.
