By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “The Community salutes and encourages the Government and people of Barbados as the country embarks on this new path. As you celebrate this milestone please accept my best wishes and my commitment and that of the Secretariat to assist Barbados in achieving its development goals,” said the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretary-General Dr. Carla Barnett in her congratulatory message to Prime Minister Mia Mottley as Barbados celebrated its 55th anniversary of independence by becoming a republic.
“This opens a new chapter in the country’s development. Barbadians can face the future with renewed pride as this transition closes the circle of independence,” said Dr .Barnett adding that the theme for the Celebration “Rebuilding A Nation, Embracing Our Heritage” was most appropriate.
“The Community is highly appreciative of Barbados leadership which begun as an original signatory to the Treaty establishing CARICOM, and continues with its responsibility for the CARICOM Single Market and Economy within the CARICOM Quasi-Cabinet” said the Secretary-General.
Dr. Barnett said Barbados has made impressive strides since gaining independence from the United Kingdom 55 years ago noting that its citizens have distinguished themselves internationally in many fields including politics, diplomacy, academia, the arts and sports.
