Secretary of State
On behalf of the Government of the United States, I congratulate the people of Saint Lucia on 39 years of independence.
The United States enjoys its partnership with the people of St. Lucia. Today we celebrate our strong people-to-people connections to advance shared national security interests and to deliver prosperity, driven by trade and investment, for our citizens. We look forward to strengthening our partnerships in pursuit of shared goals for the Caribbean as stated in the Caribbean 2020 strategy.
We wish the people of St. Lucia a happy Independence Day celebration with peace and prosperity throughout the year to come.
