Since the beginning of 2022, the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire is also the Territorial Authorized Officer (TAO) for the European Union. As TAO, he is the first authorized person to sign for European funds for Bonaire.

“As Lieutenant Governor and TAO, I - Nolly Oleana - am convinced that with the right approach through the European Union, many doors can be opened for our society. That is why an international desk has been set up within my cabinet to inform Bonaire about these possibilities. This website will be one of the first steps in that direction. If you have any further questions, I invite you to send an email to internationaldesk@bonairegov.com"
