Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams will be guest speaker during the joint luncheon of Mayor World Conference Inc (WMC), National Bar Association and the Judicial Council tomorrow, January 20.

Johnny Ford, Founder, extended an invitation to Prime Minister Hon. Sarah Wescot-Williams for Sint Maarten to become a member of the WMC, an offer she accepted as it will ensure that the contact and the relationship established will remain and will be further worked out.

On Thursday, January 19, a delegation of the WMC paid a courtesy visit to the Council of Ministers to discuss and explore possibilities of collaboration, exchange views about joint ventures with Sint Maarten in areas such as Youth, Sports, Public Health, Economic Development, Education and Tourism.

The delegation is on the island for a site visit to plan an eventual seminar for the WMC, similar to the ones that are currently being held by the National Bar Association and the Judicial Council.

WMC was founded in April 1984 as a non-profit organization with non-political affiliation. The following seven T’s are the WMCs fundamental goals: trust, trade, tourism, technology, transfer, and treasury, training and twin city programs.

Membership is not only limited to mayors, but to any elected or appointed public official.

Both parties agreed that the issues in their respective country are basically the same, whether on a large or small scale and that being part of a platform and dialogue to address these matters and to exchange best practices will be an added value.
