CARICOM Congratulates Bahamas on Independence Anniversary

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) congratulated the government and people of the Bahamas on the country’s 47th Anniversary of Independence on July 10.

CARICOM Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, in a congratulatory message to Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, also extended best wishes for the country’s continued growth and advancement.

“The theme of this year’s festivities, ‘Pressing Onward: A Time of Hope, Triumph and Transformation,’ is a unifying call for Bahamians in this exceptional period of challenges, to reflect on the successes of the past while using the lessons learned to chart a path to greater success for the country in the coming years,” LaRocque said.

As a result of restrictive measures put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s anniversary was not celebrated with the usual pomp and pageantry of past Independence Day celebrations; instead, a four-hour, made-for-television virtual program was aired live from the studios of ZNS-TV in both New Providence and Grand Bahama.
