A mission to the Antilles every two days

A total of 180 delegations from 11 different government departments went on fact-finding tours to the Dutch Antilles in 2007, tv programme Nova reported on Monday.

The figure does not include local government and parliamentary missions to the islands. Nova said there was no overall coordination of the missions and it took three months for it to get the complete list.
