On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I congratulate the citizens of Namibia as you celebrate 24 years of independence on March 21.

The United States remains committed to building on the strong legacy of partnership between our nations.

I am proud of the work we have undertaken in the battle against HIV/AIDS. The success we have achieved in agriculture, education, and conservation is laying the foundation for a more prosperous future.

Together, our countries are creating new opportunities for the Namibian people by working to improve public health and promote sustainable economic growth.

We will continue our close partnership with Namibia to achieve our mutual goal of a stable, healthy, and prosperous society for all Namibians.

As you celebrate this special day from Oshakati to Oranjemund, I offer all Namibians warmest wishes for continued peace, security, and lasting prosperity.
