St. Maarten – The new Dutch representative for Curacao, Aruba and St. Maarten Gerard van der Wulp, paid a courtesy visit to President of Parliament Gracita Arrindell on Thursday morning. Wulp replaces Rob Vermaas who was stationed in Willemstad, Curacao.
Thursday’s meeting was focused on orientation and allowed Wulp to hear about the functioning of Parliament and the challenges since country status was attained 10-months ago.
Wulp also met three of the faction leaders in Parliament on Thursday. Faction leader of the United People’s (UP) Party Romain Laville was the only one not to attend or appoint a representative. The meeting in the conference room allowed for the MPs to exchange views with Wulp on a host of issues.

The Dutch Representation in the Western Hemisphere is headquartered in Willemstad and has satellite offices in Oranjestad, Aruba and Philipsburg. The offices of Dutch Representation serve as a liaison between the Dutch Government and the governments of the three countries in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom. The Dutch representatives ensure the coordination of Dutch policy with respect to the three countries. They also report to the Netherlands on relevant developments and facilitate the working visits of Dutch government officials. The representatives also advise about projects and programs and play an active role where it concerns relations between the Netherlands, Curacao, Aruba and St. Maarten.
