Willemstad/Philipsburg –” Without doubt, fiscal consolidation is necessary to put the public finances in Curaçao and Sint Maarten on a sustainable path and to create fiscal space to confront any future adverse economic shocks.

In this regard, a fiscal consolidation path should secure room for public investments.
