Queen and Governor congratulate Curaçao

Both Dutch Queen Beatrix and the newly-appointed Governor of Country St. Maarten Eugene Holiday sent congratulatory telegrams to the newly-appointed Governor of Country Curaçao Frits Goedgedrag.

"Today our Kingdom enters a new phase as the result of the constitutional reforms. On this special day I would like to express my deeply-felt connection with you, inhabitants of Country Curaçao, and I wish you all fortune and prosperity," Her Majesty's message stated.

Holiday wrote: "Today the Netherlands Antilles as part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has entered a new and challenging phase. Curaçao will take an autonomous position within the Kingdom. St. Maarten too faces a similar challenge.

"Despite the political and administrative separation, our two countries will remain closely tied and the joint history will continue to confirm those ties. I wish the residents and new government of Curaçao much prosperity and luck with giving form to Country Curaçao."
