HOBOKEN, N.J., May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pioneer Consulting, the full-service submarine fiber optic telecommunications consulting and project management company, has been asked by the Government of Netherlands: Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy to deliver its expertise to produce a comprehensive investigation into enhancing the digital connectivity of three of the Netherlands’ overseas territories situated in the Caribbean Sea.
