WILLEMSTAD.- During an event at Cosecha San Nicolás and in the presence of dignitaries and other guests, Minister Chris Romero received Minister Steven Martina from Curaçao, in order to formalize the Treaty of Intent for the Fast Ferry project between Aruba and Curaçao.

From the moment he took over as head of the Transport, Communications and Primary Sector portfolios, Minister Chris Romero duly informed about the Rapid Ferry project in order to start transiting the route to make it a reality. He began to sit down and listen to potential partners and stakeholders in Aruba, they moved to Curaçao and met among others with Minister Steven Martina, Zita Jesus-Leito and Prime Minister Eugene Rhuggenaath.

The indication was obtained, from the FOICE report, that the Fast Ferry should leave the jetty at Barcadera, but Minister Romero proposed and decided that the ferry should leave San Nicolás. Starting from this point of view, the idea to articulate San Nicolás Port was born and whose Law is currently in the Department of Legislation.

The next step is to work on a cooperation agreement that is a legal document, in which all aspects of preparation for the project would be documented. The realization of this agreement will last between 6 and 8 months. Next to Curacao, they will decide which company will become the operator and thus begin physical preparations, such as the construction of the Fast Ferry terminal, which will transport people, cars and cargo between Aruba and Curaçao.

Minister Chris Romero is extremely honored to be able to count on the presence of Minister Steven Martina in order to achieve the agreement that will make the Fast Ferry between the islands a reality. This is the first phase of a bright future for the people of Aruba and Curacao.
