    Congratulatory Message from the Secretary-General of CARICOM, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque

    on the occasion of the Fifty-First Anniversary of Independence of Guyana

    on 26 May 2017.


    On behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) I extend warm congratulations to the Government and People of Guyana on the occasion of the 51st Anniversary of the country’s Independence.

    The progress made by Guyana over the last five decades is indicative of the determination and resilience of its citizens.  This allied with the country’s natural resources, fertile agricultural lands, and thrust to a green economy bodes well for the nation’s future. This is underscored by the theme for this year’s celebration – Unity in Diversity in a Green Economy.

    Guyana has a proud tradition of being a leader in regional integration and has provided leadership to the Community in the area of Agriculture in its role as the country responsible for that sector in the CARICOM Quasi-Cabinet.

    The Caribbean Community joins with the Government and People of Guyana in their celebration of this milestone and looks forward to continuing the journey together towards further progress of the country and the Region.”
