WILLEMSTAD.-President of the Board of Financial Supervision of Curaçao (Cft), Mrs. Lidewijde Ongering, referred to the last time the Cft had a meeting with the press, which was in October 2023. What the president emphasized is that, during the period from October 2023 to February 2024, many things happened and there was a lot of work done for Curaçao. One of those intensive tasks was to find a solution for Ennia, and Ongering explained that the efforts led to finding a positive solution for all parties involved.

This is a problem that Curaçao has been trying to solve for some years, keeping Ennia’s ports open and not harming the large number of pensioners who need to collect their pensions at Ennia.

Ongering explained that the work was intense to save Ennia and that a solution was found where all parties involved did their best to save Curaçao from an unprecedented social problem.

Ongering explained that after seeking legal advice, an appropriate solution was reached within that framework.

In Ongering’s opinion, this is a positive outcome, but now the definitive work is about to begin.

This solution will entail financial commitments, where Curaçao commits to annually contribute 30 million guilders starting in 2027 for a period of 30 years.

This puts pressure on Curaçao’s budget, considering the existing risks to the budget, such as the Curaçao Medical Center, among others. But the projections are positive as efforts continue to find a solution for the Curaçao Medical Center.
