Suriname Independence Day
Secretary of State
On behalf of the United States, congratulations to the people of the Republic of Suriname on 42 years of independence.
The United States remains a committed partner of Suriname as we work toward building a safer and more prosperous Caribbean region. Today we celebrate our strong people-to-people connections and look forward to increasing security, prosperity, and the well-being of the people of the United States and the Caribbean as underscored in the United States – Caribbean Strategic Engagement Act.
I wish the people of Suriname a wonderful Independence Day.
