  1. Of course the Government of Sint Maarten must visit these kinds of summits, at least if as country you want to keep up with developments around you. The dump discussion is one on its’ own and should be carry at all time, because it’s screaming for a workable solution.

    • Summits are for EXPERTS not politicians that barely no the details!! I understand you have a Minister to protect but dont throw sand in people’s eyes.

  2. They don’t learn do they? When it’s their own money, we can see them become prudent but when it concerns OUR money, they are like children spending on candy!!!

  3. What a complete waste of time and tax payer money!! And that in the face of the “burning” issue (pun intended) here at home being the DUMP!!!!

    When are they getting serious?!!!
