St. Maarten News—A financial consultant who has been visiting St. Maarten for several years, is concerned with the lack of opportunities for young people here. Albert White is a domestic and international business strategist in Maryland, USA and has been visiting St. Maarten for several years. He suggested that the people of the island, particularly young people are not benefiting from the economic growth and many of them are leaving St. Maarten as a result. “You can see the young people leaving the island and going elsewhere and not staying here,” White told Today.
He said he has friends who live in the US who are from St. Maarten who are disenchanted with the country’s politics. “I know people from the United States who are from St. Maarten who basically said St. Maarten is a beautiful place but politically it’s has a lot to be desired and people have not benefited,” White said.
