  • From Johan on Saba elated with reopening of Princess Juliana Airport

    Hmmm, we were the first passengers from Saba on Tuesday. We were welcomed by a great WinAir committee, but not by the prime minister. He came later and only welcomed Statia.

  • From Bill Lobban on Opinion: Saba's nature is recovering but economic outlook is bleak

    My grandson is studying at SABA medical school. I am surprised that in all I read that the school is never mentioned. Surely it has a significant economic effect if only in the rental industry. We are looking at hundreds of students spending money on this and other services.

  • From Hemmie van Xanten on GDP increased in 2015 in Caribbean Netherlands

    Wonderful to read about the GDP based on 2015. We did well that year. By the way for those who do not understand what the GDP stands for, the following explanation:

    Gross domestic product (GDP) is the best way to measure a country’s economy. GDP is the total value of everything produced by all the people and companies in the country. It doesn’t matter if they are citizens or foreign-owned companies. If they are located within the country’s boundaries, the government counts their production as GDP.

    The fact is that we are now living in 2017, two years later, struggling with the aftermath of Hurricanes. Why do we have to read about these statistics facts while most of us are struggling to make ends meet.

    I hope that the department of Economic affairs and the bureau for Central Statistics (CBI) get their act together and focus on the present situation which will give them a complete different picture.

    Great!!
    I think Saba is taking a bit of leadership in the region. That is excellent!!!
    It is a very small island but that becomes great in the region, by the quality of the people. We must keep up with those unique values: generosity, organization, teamwork, honesty, solidarity, love for their island and care for their resources. To think also that we are an island that we depend on our neighbors and we need them too. Congratulations!!

  • From anna keene on Question: "How do we get on or off the island?" - Updated Sept 28

    I live and work on Saba. I realize that as parents you all have concerns but let’s get real. we have just been through two devastating hurricanes, the northern Caribbean chain has been decimated, many people lost their homes here, we are worried about a supply boat arriving in the next couple weeks to provide food and water, wondering when a boat will arrive with building supplies so people can start to rebuild their lives, and you are all worried about whether your kids are gonna make it home for christmas!!!!! Because we are a small island, we do have services up and running in record time. We take care of each other here. Yes we are dependent on the outside world for most of our goods particularly now that the working farms that supply us locally with fresh veg have to start from bare dirt, so please take several giant steps back and let the powers that be take care of things. Things do go slowly here. Rerouting planes that are dealing with international regulations does take time. This is hurricane season and you chose to put your children on this island. Just because we haven’t had a hurricane this bad in years doesn’t negate the possibility of it happening every year. Count your blessings that your kids are safe, do what we do here, be patient, it will all work out.
