Tijdens de opening van een infocentrum in het ressort Koewarasan afgelopen zaterdag heeft HVB-partijleider Raymond Sapoen scherpe kritiek geuit op de huidige regering van president Chandrikapersad San...

Wilgo Bilkerdijk ASFA chairman said that the Association of Surinamese Manufacturers (ASFA) believes that Minister Silvano Tjong-Ahin of Spatial Ordering & Environment (ROM) would be a good successor to outgoing Minister Armand Achaibersing of Finance & Planning. Achaibersing has been wanting to resign for some time now; he has put his portfolio at the disposal of President Santokhi. The head of state who asked the finance minister to stay on for a while.

Bilkerdijk is also very sorry that Achaibersing is leaving. However, there must be a successor once he is gone. Bilkerdijk said that he heard that the name of Tjong-Ahin is mentioned as a possible successor. The ASFA has also been approached for its opinion on a possible successor. Although the ASFA has not nominated anyone, a profile has been given for a successor and expectations have been expressed.

According to Bilkerdijk, Tjong-Ahin has the competences to lead the Ministry of Finance & Planning. It is his field and he fits the profile. He may be doing a much better job there than on ROM. Bilkerdijk said that he does not know how it will turn out politically but they don’t want to get involved. Tjong-Ahin has been nominated for the Ministry of ROM on behalf of the NPS, while Finance & Planning is a so-called ‘VHP ministry’.

A finance minister is an important player within the IMF programme. The changing of the guard at this post is therefore also a point of attention for the ASFA.
