February 7: Grenada Independence Day

Statement by Secretary Antony J. Blinken

On behalf of the Government of the United States, I congratulate the people of Grenada on the 48th anniversary of your independence.

Grenada and the United States share close ties and a strong, steadfast partnership. We appreciate Grenada’s role in addressing the climate crisis and are proud to work together to improve regional security and advance the health and prosperity of the Caribbean. Our collaboration with Grenada on education and entrepreneurship helps ensure a more prosperous future for the people of Grenada. In the year ahead, we look forward to the inauguration of two emergency operations centers in Grenada and Carriacou that will support Grenada’s security and resilience.

The United States values the strong relationship between our two countries and wishes the citizens of Grenada a happy Independence Day.
