On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Grenada on 44 years of independence.

The United States values our close partnership with Grenada. Grenada’s leadership in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in 2017 built a foundation for renewed partnerships between our countries and the region that will advance security and prosperity in the years ahead.

We look forward to continued engagement with our friends in Grenada to harness shared opportunities and address shared challenges, as underscored in the Caribbean 2020 strategy.

On this momentous occasion, we send the people of Grenada best wishes for a happy Independence Day.
