Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations sets up long-term project team for St Maarten
Initial recovery and emergency assistance is currently the priority for St Maarten. However, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations is also looking at what needs to happen in the longer term. Teams will be travelling to St Maarten to assess what is needed, and their assessments will be used to draw up a plan.
A coordinating project team has been set up and Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations Ronald Plasterk has appointed former Commander of the Royal Military and Border Police (Koninklijke Marechaussee) Hans Leijtens as its head.
