This courtesy meeting was an opportunity to deepen the discussion on the need for excellent North-South cooperation, asserted will of the two local governments and also supported by France and Holland.
The issue of cross-border projects in the framework of the European St. Martin / Sint Maarten co-operation funds was widely discussed, as was the need to quickly submit the costed projects to the European Commission for publication. The three projects retained are still the same: creation of a wastewater treatment plant at Cole Bay, creation of a stormwater retention pond at Belle Plaine Orleans and development of the Simpson Bay lagoon.
President Gibbs took advantage of this fruitful exchange to present his project of United Congress French and Dutch aimed at harmonizing and structuring cooperation actions between the two parts of the island. A project that Mrs. Kappeyne has undertaken to present to her authority.
