THE HAGUE - At the insistence of the Second Chamber of the Dutch Parliament, an independent agency will investigate whether the Dutch efforts to promote good governance in Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten are having the desired effect. The evaluation (in The Hague jargon: policy review) will relate to the period 2017 to 2020. The Netherlands earmarked 168 million euros in that period.
In a letter to the Chamber, Undersecretary Raymond Knops of Kingdom Relations explains the structure of the investigation. The public tender will take place this fall. The report, including the government's response, will be sent to the Chamber at the end of 2022.
