On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I send congratulations to the people of the Dominican Republic as you celebrate the 177th anniversary of your independence on February 27, 2021.

The United States and the Dominican Republic are bound together by extraordinary cultural and economic ties that contribute to the strength of both our countries.  We will continue to build upon our long-standing relationship, sharing a deep commitment to democratic governance, transparency, and sustainable economic growth.

We continue to stand together amid the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, with our contributions and technical assistance emblematic of our partnership.  The United States looks forward to our continued collaboration in these and other endeavors.

I send my best wishes to the Dominican people for many prosperous years ahead.
