  1. Special congratulations to the two office holders, Ms Ebbie Schmidt – Hinds and Mr. Carlyle Tearr, who will now serve as Board members of the Chamber of Commerce on Statia. I trust that the fertile experiences theypossess,would be displayed through service in realizing the mission and vision of the sector, which they represent. I wish the Chamber a progressive term and look forward to a renewed economic policy for Statia’s businesses.
