To foster cheaper and easier trade, the Netherlands is making an effective electronic certification tool for agricultural products available to all UN member states. This will facilitate the export of vegetables, fruit and flowers, particularly from developing countries. The Netherlands announced its offer during the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development ( UNCTAD) in Nairobi. "Paperless trade is the future," said Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Minister Lilianne Ploumen, who attended the conference. "The new system known as ASYCER, has been developed by the Netherlands and has proven to be successful. Digitalization enables faster processing by the Customs, giving a tremendous boost to efficiency."

As the devastation caused by cyclone Winston has emphasized, the clock is ticking to secure a future for humanity and for our planet. The Paris climate deal was a historic step in the right direction, but we still have a long road ahead of us. Each country, no matter how small, can work towards a sustainable future. My country, Aruba, is one of the four countries that together make up the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Three out of the four countries of our Kingdom – Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten - are Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Although small in size, we have set ambitious aims for our future. Aruba, seeks to transition off fossil fuels by 2020. With this move we aim to become a fully sustainable, self-sufficient society. To achieve a sustainable society, close cooperation between the public and private sector is needed. Since 2009, under so-called public-private partnerships (PPP’s), Aruba has initiated a lot of sustainable projects in a variety of sectors such as renewable energy, infrastructure and logistics leading to a higher level of sustainable development. These have included the building of a windmill park, the roadway Green Corridor, the expansion of the hospital and the building of a complete new container harbour. I strongly believe PPP’s are crucial instruments towards a sunnier future for Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
