ST GEORGE’S – Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr Keith Mitchell says his administration is committed to the nation’s development as Grenada celebrates 45 years of political independence from Britain.
In his Independence Day message, Mitchell said 45 years means that the island has achieved a certain level of maturity.
“As a nation we have matured throughout many experiences over the last four and a half decades.”
He noted that the development of the island has been on an upward trend and his government remains committed to enhancing the country economically.
“As we celebrate the 45th anniversary, we recommit ourselves to the development of our beloved homeland. I encourage you to continue being the patriotic nationals that you are and I commend your contributions.
He also underscored the importance of unity and the need to work together to further enhance development.
“Even as we remain committed to our national priorities, we remain committed to the work of regional integration such as the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).”
He said the regional organisations continue to champion the interest of regional states.
“It is through collaboration that we will maximise the benefits of these efforts,” he noted.
Meanwhile, OECS Commission has congratulated Grenada on its anniversary of independence.
“The Commission acknowledges the profound contribution which Grenada continues to make toward the growth and development of the OECS family and looks forward to continuing in the service of the Government and people of Grenada for the realisation of their development aspirations,” the Commission said on Thursday.
