DANIEL GIBBS BRINGS 33,4 MILLION EUROS TO THE SAINT-MATINERS


Saint-Martin, september 15 th – « For the first time since months we can  hope that the urgents means of st. Martiners will be looked after, Daniel Gibbs said today in reaction on the Prefet’s statement of yesterday.» In fact, by reorienting the money of the Development Contract signed between the State and the COM, the Préfet of St. Martin  has followed the ideas expressed by the First vice-president since a long time.

« I have always favoured, Gibbs said, that public money, wheever it comes from the COM, the State or the SEMSAMAR, should help to save problems linked to services to the population and not be spended in sectors where the private investors could be involved.» By highlighting  the water cleaning , the financement of the new School complex at La Savane and the waste management, the Prefet has, at least, understood what a modern State has to provide to his citizens : essentials services!

Concerning the Prefet’s decision to no longer provide money for the Waterfront project, the one promoted by the President, the Senator and the SEMSAMAR, Daniel Gibbs is totally agreeing. «This is a wise decision, added Daniel Gibbs. It puts an end to this no scale project pushed ahead by the President since Daniel Gibbs was fired from his responsablities at the Economic Development portofolio almost one year ago. It is time now , to come back to reality and to invite the private sector, nationaly and internationaly, to be welcomed in Saint-Martin. I urge the President to ,quickly, launch an international bid for the Waterfront project and for the Port of Gallisbay.»

About the Prefet’s will to implement a real cooperation with the southern side of the Island, this looks like the propositions Daniel Gibbs made last Monday in an english speaking paper.
