Information session 2 on World Bank Tenders- Rebuilding St. Maarten

June 7, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 1:15 pm

The Chamber cordially invites all companies in the construction-, engineering-, materials-, environmental- and/or project management sector, to the 2nd information session on the World Bank Tenders for the rebuilding of St. Maarten, where representatives of the World Bank, NRPB and RVO will be present to give detailed information and answer your questions. Please join us to learn more about the participation and tender application.

After the devastation created by Hurricane Irma in September 2017, Sint Maarten is rebuilding with the help of the Sint Maarten Recovery Reconstruction and Resilience Trust Fund, financed by the government of the Netherlands and managed by the World Bank.

The government of Sint Maarten has listed the damages, estimated at US$ 1.38 billion, in a recovery plan ‘The National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP)’ which also serves as a roadmap for the investment decisions of the $550 million Sint Maarten Recovery Reconstruction and Resilience Trust Fund. The top priorities of the NRRP are the basic needs of the people of Sint Maarten; such as food, shelter, health and livelihoods.  The plan also focuses on a medium and longer-term approach to revitalize the economy in a sustainable manner. The projects that are currently being funded from the Sint Maarten Recovery Reconstruction and Resilience Trust Fund are aimed at sustainable strengthening of infrastructure as well as waste collection and processing.

Following the 1st information session (webinar), the next session will focus on the following information:

General introduction: World Bank

Recovery St Maarten: National Recovery Program Bureau (NRPB)

Joint Ventures: Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO)
