CARICOM congratulates Guyana on its 55th Independence Anniversary

Posted: Tuesday, May 25, 2021. 5:52 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Today is Independence Day in Guyana, which broke away from the United Kingdom 55 years ago today.

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has sent its congratulations through Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque to Guyana’s President, His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali, lauding the country’s pivotal role in shaping the regional integration movement.

The Secretary-General made note that Guyanese have made their mark globally in diplomacy, the arts, academia and sport.

Guyana has hosted the CARICOM Secretariat for many years, assuming its place at the center of the regional integration movement.

Ambassador LaRocque continued, “Mr. President, the Community looks forward to Guyana’s continued contributions, especially in your 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.

He also reiterated regional support for the country’s territorial integrity in its longstanding dispute with Venezuela.
