PPRN: What is the role of the “Lacroix” mission sent by Paris?


On December 16, the Minister of Overseas France admitted that the PPRN, as revised, had to be "corrected" and announced the appointment of a mission.

Led by Dominique Lacroix and Jean-François Desbouis, this mission arrived at the start of last week in Saint-Martin. "Many believe that economic and social considerations were not sufficiently taken into account in the preparation of the document", comments Dominique Lacroix who recalls that it is above all a "document for the protection of human lives" . However, he admits that it is necessary to see "if we cannot reconcile economic, social issues and the protection of human lives". "This is the whole purpose of this trip, of this mission which is independent," he said.

The role of the mission is to gather information and report, recommendations "taking into account the realities of Saint Martin" to the ministries of energy transition and overseas in mid-March.

Dominique Lacroix and Jean-François Desbouis will leave this Friday in Paris where they will then "meet the ministries to explain the problems they have observed" and convince them to make the corrections that seem right to them. They already have "food for thought" or "solutions" but do not want to reveal them yet. "We have to study them with experts to be sure of their effectiveness," he said. (soualigapost.com)
