Fellow Saint Martiners,
The New Year’s wishes are an opportunity for me to thank those who have invested in the territory and who are moving forward in a constructive way. I would like to thank the civil society, the business leaders and the associations, for their contribution and their valuable support throughout the year.
Thanks to the local authorities who have worked for the development of Saint Martin and who have contributed to the democratic life of Saint Martin.
I would like to congratulate the civil servants as they did well in serving the general interest of our people.
Let us be kind and attentive towards each other,
Let us be generous without expecting anything in return,
Let us give our time to our youngsters,
Let us work peacefully for our island
I have a special thought for those who are facing difficulty. May the aspirations of your heart and your goals be achieved. May 2017 bring you serenity and sharing with your loved ones, family and friends.
Happy New Year to one and all on behalf of the territorial council of Saint Martin.
Présidente du Conseil territorial de Saint Martin.
