The Executive Council of the Public Entity of Saba is set to leave for the Caribbean Netherlands week in The Hague. The CN week is a weeklong series of meetings where Saba along with the other Public Entities of Bonaire and St. Eustatius meet with Ministers and top level civil servants to discuss areas of concern and also ways to improve cooperation between the two levels of government.
During the trip a point of discussion will be the evaluation scheduled for 2015 on the relationship between the Public Entities and The Netherlands. The Executive Council will outline the challenges that Saba has faced since the transition and will suggest that The Netherlands streamline its approach and limit bureaucracy in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.
Since the transition the Executive Council has traveled annually to The Hague for these contact meetings. The Dutch Government provides the funding for the trip.
