Reaction of the President to the election of Donald Trump

"By winning the US presidential election, Donald Trump became the president of all Americans. It is a democratic choice. I congratulate the new president on his victory, and I wish him good luck in his new role.

Because of its geographical position, Saint-Martin has always had privileged relations with America. Historically, Saint-Martin has maintained cultural and family ties with the United States, many families are settled there, and part of our youth is studying there. We also have strong tourism links with this country, and we wish to see these cordial and fraternal relations continue. The new president also has a connection with Saint-Martin, because he owns property and must appreciate the many assets of our territory. "

The portion of road located between the Tourist Office and the branch of the street of General de Gaulle is currently closed and will reopen on Thursday 10 November. The deviation will be done by the Sea Front.

The laying of pipelines and fiber optics on rue de la Liberté is now complete. The workers began to concretize the street, beginning with the stretch between Rue de la République and Rue Félix Eboué. In order to avoid deterioration of the infrastructure, this portion of the street will be reopened once the final coating (asphalt) is laid.

Aware of the inconvenience caused to traders and local residents, the EEASM is making every effort to keep its calendar and reopen road traffic, as planned on 30 November 2016.

Four months of work, carried out in the low tourist season, were planned to rehabilitate these networks once and for all, and to offer the population suitable facilities.
