Philipsburg, St. Maarten – The Council of Education and Labor of the Dutch Caribbean (known as ROA CN) made a working visit to St. Maarten in June 2015 in which one of its activities was to conduct a presentation on its organization and render advice and tips to St. Maarten on setting up its own Council of Education and Labor.
