The Sint Maarten Chamber of Commerce and Industry (COCI) in executing its task to advise the Government solicited or unsolicited issued on April 1, 2016 an “Unsolicited Advice” to the Government of St. Maarten on NIPA. COCI in its advice stressed on the obligation of Government to provide due education and access to education for the citizens of this country. Governments obligation in this regard, may never be placed with third parties completely, having the latter execute the obligation of the Government at their discretion. A hands-off approach may never be undertaken when it relates to education, as the growth of our population and our country is fully contingent upon offering of the best education with access to all seeking such. An at arms-length approach may be undertaken, yet at all times proper provisions should be in place to safeguard the institution, its staff and its students from actions or failure to act by those in charge causing results that may be irreversible and detrimental to the cause. Never again should the Government permit any educational institution to be established based on a hands-off approach. COCI hopes that errors and omissions will be corrected and through changes to the Articles of Incorporation the necessary safeguards will be provisioned for. All connected to NIPA deserve a true opportunity to be granted to attain with the institution its aims and success envisioned.
