Suriname National Day Message


Location: Washington, DC

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Suriname as you celebrate 37 years of independence this November 25.

Our two countries share a rich tradition of cultural and religious diversity that is a foundation for a stronger future. Your efforts to preserve your natural resources and environment are setting an example for others. Through the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative, our two countries are increasing security for the people of the region, strengthening democracy, rule of law and transparent government, and expanding the circle of human rights.

I wish you a happy, safe, and prosperous independence day as you enjoy some of Suriname's festivities held for the first time in Nickerie, and honor your country's heritage during the annual parade.
