Economies across the world have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and St. Maarten is no exception. The necessary measures of closing the borders in order to control the spread of the virus has resulted in a practical halt of all economic activities on the island. 

The government acknowledges that it is imperative that adequate measures are taken to absorb the economic and social impact of this new shock and to achieve a rapid recovery of the economy. Businesses that are severely affected will need financial assistance and for those who risk losing their jobs, the creation of a social safety net is essential. These measures are outlined on this website.

The Government of St. Maarten has put together a Relief and Economic Stimulus Plan, in which the request for support totals ANG. 258.3 Million for the first 3 months.

Direct relief programs for businesses and individuals who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Liquidity support for Government and Government owned entities.

Additional urgent support for healthcare expenses needed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
