Netherlands Antilles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Netherlands Antilles consist of five islands in the Caribbean: Curacao, Bonaire, Sint Maarten, Sint Eustachius, Saba. It is an autonomous territory in the Kingdom of the Netherlands since 1954. Before 1986 Aruba was also a part of the Netherlands Antilles. In the future a revision of the Statute of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is foreseen for 2007. This will almost certain result in dissolving the Netherlands Antilles.
