President Louis Mussington met on Monday with the director of Iedom for Guadeloupe and the northern islands, Thierry Beltrand. This last announced the reopening of the monthly service of Iedom in Saint-Martin, starting in June. In the long term, the Iedom wishes to settle permanently in Saint-Martin, an approach supported by the president of the Collectivity.
The Iedom also produces statistics on the Saint-Martin economy, in particular through the collection of company balance sheets, carried out in an anonymous framework allowing studies to be carried out on the local economic fabric. A mission dedicated to this objective will be deployed on the territory during the month of June. The global annual report based on data collected on the territory will also be published in June. The institute proposes to complete this support with an additional panorama of 4 pages presenting the island of Saint-Martin, its history, its economy and its societal data.
The Collectivity of Saint-Martin, whose economic development delegation created a statistics department in 2021, wishes to significantly strengthen data collection and rely on its institutional partners. For President Louis Mussington, “it is a matter of strengthening statistics to better understand the territory and to be able to propose public policies adapted to the needs of the population”.
The sensitive issue of Saint-Martin's gross domestic product (GDP) was also discussed, with the last estimate of Saint-Martin's GDP dating from 2018 based on data collected in 2014. Since then, the data has changed profoundly and the assessment of the GDP that we have is now obsolete.
Director Thierry Beltrand announced that partnership work with Iedom, Insee and AFD would be carried out before the end of this year, in order to assess Saint-Martin's new GDP and allow the Collectivity to have a newer tool.
