Dutch and Sona end cooperation in 2015

POSTED: 06/22/12 2:02 PM

WILLEMSTAD – The Dutch Representation in Willemstad has confirmed the signing of a new management agreement between the Dutch Ministry of Home Affairs and Kingdom Relations and Foundation Development Funds Netherlands Antilles (Sona). Sona announced the new agreement Wednesday in a release about its annual report.
The new agreement was signed by Sona’s Chairman Richard Hart and outgoing Dutch Minister of Home Affairs and Kingdom Relations Liesbeth Spies on June 13. The agreement, which is in line with the Dutch subsidy regulations, details how Sona is to report on the projects that are ongoing in Curacao and St. Maarten.
This new management agreement will end in 2015 when the foundation’s cooperation with the Dutch Ministry of Home Affairs and Kingdom Relations formally ends. This is line with the fact that Dutch financing for the cooperation programs will end in 2013 and the projects that are financed with that aid should be finished in 2014. When the relationship with the Dutch ends Sona will continue to administer funds made available by the European Commission.
The new agreement and the termination are also in line with the fact that the debt relief program gives Curacao and St. Maarten the room to fully cover the costs of their policies. It is also in line with the choice that both countries made for more autonomy.
