On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to congratulate the people of Belize as you celebrate your 30th Independence Day this September 21.

This is an opportunity to honor your country’s robust democracy, vibrant diversity and rich culture. The United States is committed to cooperating with you on some of the most important regional and global challenges we face. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with the Government of Belize in its efforts to improve citizen safety and security under the Central America Security Partnership. Through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), we will continue to support initiatives that increase the reach and effectiveness of health and education services for all Belizeans.

As people from all over Belize gather together to enjoy the September festivities -- including this year’s Prime Ministers Forum -- know that the United States is a partner and friend. Congratulations and best wishes for a year of peace and prosperity.
