ECONOMY: Assessment of State's budgetary effort post Irma in Saint-Martin 


As part of the 2023 finance bill, the State has published the cross-cutting overseas policy document, a document which brings together all the quantified public policies for overseas territories. It also takes stock of the reconstruction operations carried out in Saint-Martin. 

Between 2017 and 2021, the State has committed to ten missions to the tune of 343,77 million euros in commitment authorization (AE) and 324,96 million in payment credits (CP).

The mission that has concentrated the most funding is the 'relations with local authorities' mission with a total of 241 million euros. The 'overseas' mission is the second in terms of budgetary effort with a total of 62 million released for programs aimed at improving living conditions.

The State provided 15 million euros in support of the national education policy in 2019 (commitment to the construction of the college) and 3 million in 2021. It also contributed 17,81 million euros in the burial of electrical networks between 2017 and 2021.

Overall, the greatest efforts were made in 2017 with some 215 million euros. In 2021, commitment authorizations amounted to 3 million in AE with a single program (territorial cohesion) and €8,26 million in three programs (territorial cohesion, school education and rural electrification).
