The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has congratulated the Government and People of the Commonwealth of Dominica on the country’s Forty-Second Anniversary as an independent nation.

CARICOM Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, in a congratulatory message to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, pointed to the great fortitude and resilience demonstrated by the Government and People in rebuilding Dominica after the devastating effects of natural disasters such as Hurricane Maria in 2017.

“The chosen theme for this year’s festivities, “Embracing New Opportunities”, is a resounding call to all Dominicans to look towards the future as they overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and undertake initiatives that will aid the country’s drive for resilience and sustainable development,” the Secretary-General stated.

He said the efforts of the Government and People in promoting regional integration are most appreciated.

“I am particularly appreciative of your leadership in the Community’s efforts towards the world’s first climate-resilient Region. I look forward to Dominica’s continued active engagement in advancing the Community’s integration objectives,” the Secretary-General said.
