On behalf of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Trinidad and Tobago as you celebrate 61 years of independence.

As we consider the challenges and opportunities this year will bring, the United States looks forward to working with Trinidad and Tobago as steadfast allies and partners, united by our common values of resiliency, diversity, and democracy. We also look forward to broadening our cooperation under the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI) and the U.S.-Caribbean Partnership to Address the Climate Crisis (PACC 2030).

We wish you a fruitful year ahead and look forward to working together for a brighter future for both nations.
