Willemstad/Philipsburg – WILLEMSTAD/PHILIPSBURG — The Centrale Bank van Curaçao en Sint Maarten (CBCS) recently sold 30% (125,000 out of a total of 420,394,993 fine troy ounces) of its total gold reserves in order to enhance its resilience and increase revenues, investing the proceeds in fixed income securities (U.S. government bonds).
