Govt. will likely name UTS board reps in shareholders meeting today

PHILIPSBURG–Government is expected to disclose the names of the St. Maarten representatives for the United Telecommunications Services (UTS) board during an important general shareholder’s meeting set for today, Friday.

Curaçao’s Minister of Transport, Traffic and Urban Planning Suzy Camelia-Römer, as well as members of the UTS board, had arrived in St. Maarten earlier this week for the meeting. The Curaçao representatives will meet with Justice Minister Edson Kirindongo, Prime Minister William Marlin as well as UTS officials for the meeting.

The appointment of the board members for St. Maarten is one of the agenda points. St. Maarten has been without members of the UTS board for quite some time.

UTS official Glen Carty said on Thursday that three board members are needed from St. Maarten: one at the UTS Group level and two at the UTS Eastern Caribbean level. The candidates will have to undergo the necessary screening processes.

At today’s shareholders meeting, parties will also discuss approving of financial figures and the future of UTS amongst many other things.

A general shareholders meeting is usually held about once per annum, however, with the changes in Government in St. Maarten and Curaçao the meeting has been delayed a few times, Carty said.
