NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE MESSAGE BY MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS HON. PETER DAVID

Fellow Grenadians

On this the 35th Anniversary of Grenada’s independence, I salute all of you, sisters and brothers, for your invaluable accompaniment of nation building over the decades.


This persistent and proud task requires the determination of all; and you, our esteemed nationals in the Diaspora have persisted in helping to transform Grenada. Without interruption or complaint, without counting the cost or searching for reward, you have always firmly attached yourself to the vision and mission of a successful and buoyant Grenada


All this you have done, even as you yourselves have built vibrant overseas communities, while you have kept your families strong and happy and while you make tremendous achievements in a plethora of fields. Selflessly, you give to Grenada, year after year, and that assistance is of immense significance and its impact continues to be invaluable.


And so you make us burst with pride! We cherish you.


On this happy occasion, Sisters and Brothers in the Diaspora, we boldly declare you as our 16th Constituency and permit me to re-emphasize the Government of Grenada’s commitment to establishing a more meaningful framework and structure for your involvement with Grenada. This will be unveiled in the coming months, and we invite you to be a part of it.


Today, with tourism, as one of the pillar of our economic mainstay, your participation in this sector will bring new viability and vitality with each and every one of us taking pride in ourselves as a Grenadian people. Our attraction will not be limited to our land, flora and fauna. Fellow Grenadians, it must be the quality and beauty of our Grenadian character that overwhelms – united as one people.


On behalf of the Government of Grenada, under the robust leadership of Prime Minister Hon. Tillman Thomas, , with pride and pleasure, I bid you our Government’s wishes for a great celebration as together we share another – Happy Birthday Grenada
