WILLEMSTAD - Governor of Curaçao Lucille George-Wout said yesterday in her New Year's speech that for the first time in 15 years there is a migration surplus in our country.
This means that last year, for the first time in a long period, more people left than to settle in Curaçao. According to her, that is indicative of the situation in which Curaçao finds itself. She further stated that the current financial and economic situation affects everyone on the island.
"The loss of purchasing power, or worse, the loss of an income, weighs heavily on the shoulders of the individual citizens or families concerned, but also on our population as a whole," says George-Wout.
