Aruban subsidy system is due for a reform

There are significant bottlenecks in Aruba’s subsidy system, according to research by the Amsterdam Bureau for Economics (EBA). Aruba is recommended to set up a new subsidy system in which subsidy provision is better considered, institutions are given more freedom in the spending of subsidies, and effectiveness and efficiency are evaluated. EBA has also made proposals for how this can be successfully implemented.
