On April 2, 2014, Management of Curaçao International Financial Services Association (CIFA) and of the Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange N.V. (DCSX) had the honor and opportunity to meet with the Council of Ministers of the Government of Curaçao.
CIFA was represented by its newly appointed Chair, Mrs. Anuschka Cova, Board Member Mrs. Zuleika Lasten and Managing Director Mr. Nico van der Meer. The DCSX was represented by its CEO, Mr. René Römer.
Mrs. Cova and Mrs. Lasten discussed and reiterated the importance of the international services sector for the Curaçao economy at large and the need to continue to work closely with the Government to further develop the sector. Strong commitment from the private sector’s part was reinforced by CIFA as well as from the Government’s side.
On behalf of the DCSX, Mr. Römer stressed the importance of the DCSX as part of our (international) financial services sector. But also the unique possibilities, advantages and good public exposure to the Government if it uses the DSCX platform more and more for financing and/or refinancing of several Government related financial needs.
The ensuing conversation and questions showed a genuine interest to continue to work together and we can wholeheartedly confirm the meeting was a great success.
