Kralendijk/Wageningen- There are good opportunities to improve agricultural production and fishing on Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba and to reduce dependence on imports.

However, an integrated approach to make this happen still is still missing on the islands.

This has emerged from a study by Wageningen University & Research commissioned by the standing committee for Kingdom Relations of the House of Representatives.
