Tromp not welcome in Council of Ministers

POSTED: 09/6/11 2:05 PM

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao – Central Bank President dr. Emsley Tromp is not welcome in the Council of Ministers in Willemstad, Finance Minister George Jamaloodin wrote in a letter to the bank. Renny Maduro, the chairman of the Board of Commissioners, sees it as a challenge to find a solution for this situation.
Jamaloodin’s letter followed after an invitation by the Council of Ministers to the Central Bank to provide an explanation about its 2010 annual report, its analysis of the situation in 2011 up to now and its prognosis for the rest of the year.
The Bank contacted the Council of Ministers after it received Jamaloodin’s letter, only to hear that another agenda point had been scheduled for the time that was originally planned for the Central Bank. The Bank let the council know that, if it wishes to get a further explanation it is free to contact The Bank.
For Renny Maduro the tension between the government and Bank President Tromp has a high priority. He does not know yet how to solve the situation, and he declined to react to Minister Jamaloodin’s letter.
“I did not see the letter, so I am not able to say anything about it,” Maduro told the Amigoe. He sent a letter to the other members of the board to inform them about his appointment as chairman and to call a first meeting. The controversy between the government and Tromp will be on the agenda.
Last Friday Maduro received the national decrees from St. Maarten and Curacao that confirm his appointment.. Maduro acknowledges that Curacao did not make a good start due to the tension between the government and the Central Bank. “The Bank is an important institution for the country. The Bank regulates monetary affairs and is important for the social and economic order.”
