• From andries bonnema on Sharp decline in tourism contributes to the GDP contraction on Saba

    Not sure how useful this info is. Obviously both tourism and student rentals were down in 2020. 2020 also ended 21 months ago. How are numbers of 2020 useful for policy decisions if they aren’t available until Oct 2022?

  • From Jim Mihalic on Sharp decline in tourism contributes to the GDP contraction on Saba

    Current factors also affecting travel are high airfare from US.

    Almost doubled from “normal” rates of past causing us to re-evaluate our ability to visit along with duration and frequency of visiting .
    Even traveling with the higher than normal airlift rates reduces ability to spend more money locally per person which hurts the local economy as well.

    Good morning it’s so wonderful that Saba can provide clean drinking to the island, but it’s still a bit heavy salty taste fir me I buy and cook with it and my son drinking because it’s what the school used so it’s fine with him

  • From Alida Heilbron on Commissioner Zagers welcomes the establishing of a Task Force

    Glad to know the Task Force is now a reality and great to see how the topics that the SBA has been pressing on for a few years now, are the main focus of the Task Force. Banking issues have been lingering too long now as well as poor internet service. The business community is highly depending on these 2 services especially, and if we want to attract investors we better get this regulated without delay. As the SBA told State Secretary van Huffelen: we do not want better internet and banking services, we NEED better internet and banking services.

  • From Wynand Meyering on Advisory Board of the Slavery Past Dialogue presents final report Chains of the Past

    The Dutch Government needs to establish a stock market listed, International Investment fund in which the entire population of the Netherlands can invest and save to improve international relations… they can save the share dividends in various currencies.
