Nassau, Bahamas – The Bahamas is seeking the support of the Kingdom of The Netherlands for a level playing field regarding the tax recovery policy of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), as both countries seek closer ties on a number of diplomatic matters.
This was among matters outlined by His Excellency Sir Arthur Foulkes, Deputy to the Governor General, as he accepted Letters of Credence from Her Excellency Regina Veronica Maria Jones-Bos, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to The Bahamas, in a ceremony at Government House on Thursday, February 12.
Sir Arthur also said that from the perspective of bilateral relations and the strong ties between both countries, the Bahamas is seeking The Netherlands’ support for sustainable European investment and its candidacy in the United Nations Economic and Social Council and the Commission on Sustainable Development.
