Gromyko Wilson anaspiring politicalcandidate for theupcoming (2023) elections

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — In a press statement of Tuesday, August 20, 2022, Gromyko Wilson questioned the so called Pro Local approach of Government and organizations within the Public Sector.

What happened to promoting our own? How is it that politicians stop fighting for jobs for our locals when they get in office? What happened to the qualified political slogan? Why is it that we do not advertise on the different local online media platforms and on our radio stations? continued Wilson.

As of June 2022 SZV has hired a local in the position of HR Management Read more

I Feel We Need To Have New People In Chamber Of Commerce And Industry

I been part of COCI over 10 years and as a small business I cannot say that opportunities were offered to me or others in any type of investments.

If the Government was not forcing you by law to be a member, I think a lot of those people who don’t care to vote would have abandoned the organization, because is clear to me that it is only for the rich boys and girls on the island, who enter to secure others and themselves.

The banks are giving a hell of a time to open a simple bank account by asking you for all types of documents, and don’t talk about a loan Read more
