As you assume Chairmanship of the Heads of Government Conference in July, we look forward to your vision and advocacy for the Region in multilateral fora, where your leadership will undoubtedly strengthen regional unity and promote enhanced sustainable development for the collective benefit of the people of the Community.

Honourable Prime Minister, the Caribbean Community joins the Government and People of Grenada in celebrating your Golden Jubilee of Independence. May your journey towards a secure future be filled with continued peace and progress.”
