On behalf of the USA of America, I want to congratulate the folks of Liberia on this momentous 12 months, which sees each the bicentennial of the arrival of the primary free Black American settlers in what would turn out to be Liberia, and the one hundred and seventy fifth anniversary of the republic.
Our intertwined histories are solely a part of what makes our relationship so particular. Equally vital are our shared values – respect for democracy, human rights, and the atmosphere. We have now labored collectively in recent times to struggle COVID-19 and to develop modern new methods to fight local weather change. Our financial partnership is rising stronger annually.
It has been our honor to have fun the Liberian bicentennial with you this 12 months. Might your Independence Day be a day of celebration for Liberia’s previous accomplishments and its brilliant future.
