By Benjamin Flowers: The Secretariat of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has extended its congratulations to member nation St. Lucia on celebrating its 43rd anniversary of independence.
CARICOM Secretary-General Dr. Carla Barnett issued a congratulatory statement today to Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister Honourable Philip J. Pierre saying: “Honourable Prime Minister: On behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), I wish to convey congratulations to the Government and People of Saint Lucia on the country’s Forty-Third Anniversary as an independent nation. During the past forty-three years, Saint Lucia has been steadfast and committed to its pursuit of development of the country and people. Saint Lucia’s global contribution is widely recognized and exemplified by its two Nobel Laureates, and these feats are aptly reflected through the theme chosen to commemorate this Anniversary, “Douvan Ansanm – Celebrating our People.”
Dr. Barnett also applauded St. Lucia for the country’s role as the lead country for Sustainable Development (including Environment and Disaster Management and Water) in the CARICOM Quasi-Cabinet, stressing that it has been of “great value” to the community.
“On congratulating Saint Lucia, I reaffirm my own commitment and that of the staff of the CARICOM Secretariat to working with you and your Government to realize the aspirations of your nation. CARICOM is pleased to join with the Government and People of Saint Lucia in celebrating this anniversary, and extends best wishes for the continued progress of Saint Lucia,” Dr. Barnett added.
St. Lucia, along with the other Windward Islands, became a federated state associated with the United Kingdom in 1967, and achieved independence from the UK in 1979.
