WILLEMSTAD — The Amstel-property, which – under the Schotte-cabinet – was the intended location to build Nos Hospital Nobo (NHN), will have a different purpose, said Pueblo Soberano leader, Helmin Wiels. The political leaders of the coalition agreed on this in a meeting last Friday.Wiels stated a joint statement from all parties will be issued in due course. “For our part the plans to build the hospital on the Amstel-property are dropped considering the weighty reasons.”
According to Wiels, other plans for the property were discussed during the deliberation. The PS-leader mentioned three to four large construction projects will be made known soon. Wiels thinks Zaquito is the best location for the new hospital. It’s close to Otrobanda. Nevertheless, there are no concrete plans as yet. His party advocates a large office complex to accommodate the most essential departments of the government. Also the government recently announced the wish for a similar building. Wiels expects the future construction projects and subsequent infrastructural adjustments will have a positive spin-off for the economy. “These huge projects will lead to employment and other economic activities”, said Wiels.
