Chris Johnson was also interested in the constitutional status of Saint Martin and the relations of the community with the French state, the management of European funds and the role of Guadeloupe in this process. The interest of Saint Martin in joining Caribbean organizations such as the Association of Caribbean States (ACS), the CARICOM Caribbean Community, and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) was also raised.
Chris Johnson is also responsible for maintaining relations between the Kingdom and country Sint Maarten in order to deepen them. In the field of cooperation, he considered that many areas of cooperation could be envisaged with Saint Martin and the other islands of the region.

Secretary General of the Ministry of the Interior of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Richard Van Zwol went to Sint Maarten to study relations between the Kingdom and Sint Maarten. Relations which the Kingdom of the Netherlands wishes to optimize.
Among his priorities, Richard Van Zwol said he wanted to reinforce interregional cooperation actions, creating a framework of cooperation that was conducive to and adapted to the needs of the Caribbean territories.
The President welcomed this voluntarist approach of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which will only support the cooperation relations between Saint Martin and Sint Maarten.

The Dutch delegates were then accompanied on the ground by the achievements resulting from the regional cooperation. Conducted by Alex Richards, Director of European Affairs and External Action, they first visited the tide gauge station inaugurated last June on the port of Galisbay. Charlotte Terrac, head of the major risk management unit, gave a detailed presentation of this new preventive equipment.
