WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
Aruba PM honoured
Aruba’s charismatic prime minister Mike Eman has been named as one of the Caribbean’s most interesting people of 2014.
The region’s leading publication, Caribbean Journal, recently reviewed the newsmakers of the year, including artists, influencers, politicians and those doing notable work around the world.
Prime Minister Eman, a noted champion of the island’s tourism industry, was among those named, partly for a bold stand he took for what was considered interference by The Netherlands in Aruba affairs and also his leadership on green energy, leading the drive to make Aruba fossil-fuel-free by 2020.
