The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) congratulated the Government and people of Guyana on the country’s Fifty-fifth Independence Anniversary.

In his congratulatory message to President Irfaan Ali, CARICOM Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque lauded Guyana’s pivotal role in shaping the regional integration movement.

Ambassador LaRocque said Guyana has progressed markedly since becoming a nation. It noted that Guyanese have made their mark globally in diplomacy, the arts, academia and sport.

 “A valued member of the Caribbean Community from its inception, Guyana has played a pivotal role in shaping our regional integration movement.  In addition, being host of the Headquarters of the CARICOM Secretariat confers both a symbolic and a physical dimension to the centrality of its role,” the CARICOM General Secretary said.

 Ambassador LaRocque told President Ali that he looks forward to Guyana’s continued contributions, especially in his capacity as the lead Head of Government with responsibility for Agriculture and Food Security in the Quasi Cabinet of the Conference of Heads of Government.  “Those priority areas have taken on increased importance under your leadership, as the Community seeks to address and recover from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” it said.


Ambassador LaRocque pledged its continued support and commitment to the people and Government of Guyana, especially in relation to the preservation of the country’s territorial integrity.
