The Caribbean Community has congratulated Grenada on its Forty-Eighth Anniversary of Independence, noting the country’s resolute movement along the path to development.
CARICOM Secretary-General Dr Carla Barnett, in a congratulatory message to Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell, also commended the country’s significant contribution to promoting regional integration.
“Honourable Prime Minister
There is much for the Government and People of Grenada to be proud of since achieving independence forty-eight years ago, as the country has moved resolutely along the path to development. Grenada’s contribution globally in academia, sports, culture and diplomacy is well documented.
The theme chosen for this year’s festivities, “Overcoming our Adversity – Safeguarding Livelihoods – Protecting our Future” speaks to the firm determination of all Grenadians to play an active role in the continued development and prosperity of their country.
Honourable Prime Minister, Grenada continues to make significant contributions to the promotion of regional integration. In particular, the Community welcomes Grenada’s steadfast leadership on Science and Technology (including Information and Communications), for which you, Prime Minister, have portfolio responsibilities in the Quasi-Cabinet of the CARICOM Conference of Heads of Government.
On behalf of the Caribbean Community, I offer sincere congratulations to the Government and People of Grenada on this significant day of celebration.”
