On behalf of the United States Government, I offer my sincere wishes to the people of Tuvalu for a joyous National Day this October 1 to mark the 45th anniversary of your independence.

As we enhance cooperation on climate challenges and illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing, the United States is eager to continue collaborating with Tuvalu to ensure the Pacific and its people are strong, free, and resilient. Our shared commitment to democracy, peace, and prosperity in the Pacific region will continue to underpin our enduring partnership for years to come.

The United States celebrates with you on this festive and meaningful Independence Day.
