This advice entitled ‘Boost Sint Maarten!’ is an unsolicited advice for the honorable Prime Minister, Marcel Gumbs and acting Minister of Health, Labor and Social Development/Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Mrs. Rita Bourne-Gumbs. The Social Economic Council advises to start a conditional cash transfer program to reduce poverty.
In this advice the Social Economic Council (hereafter SER) examines the feasibility of an introduction of a mandatory second tier pension in Sint Maarten.
The SER is of the opinion that the establishment of a National Library is of crucial importance for the further development of the country and its people. The Philipsburg Jubilee Library which at the moment mainly functions as a public library should develop into the National Library of Sint Maarten.
