And what is this trip supposed to accomplish? Mr. Kamp has been coming to Saba for in years in different capacities yet where economic development is concerned there have been no new investors interested in setting up shop on Saba and now one of the banks is closing. So, what is he expecting to accomplish other than cutting a ribbon that could have been done by anyone else.
