Curacao newest country
yep, Curacao is the world's newest country and also on the Guinness book of records for being the newest and smallest country in the world. Mind you, Curacao is still controlled by the Netherlands but I guess this is one step closer to independence from the Netherlands.
Curacao now a country
the thing is that Netherlands Antilles (AN) was dissolved last year so it has not been existing for a while now. I guess it's now official so it's now CuraÃ§ao (CW), St. Maarten (SX) and BES - Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba (BQ).
Curacao is now country but for how long?
yep, the world welcomes the newest country but for how long Curacao will really remain independent? I wonder about the interest and welfare of the people, or will the organizations and unions be ignored like elsewhere in the world? time will tell, but my gut feeling is that the people of Curacao will not get a fair chance because of the greedy corporations who will be surely taking up power behind the scenes.
That's a very good question. Curacao was looking forward to more taxes from tourists, but it will be interesting to see if that is enough to support the whole country's infrastructure.
I think there's still some connection to the Netherlands, since it's a special protectorate. I'm not exactly sure what that means though.
