WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On behalf of the United States, congratulations to the Jamaican people on the 55th anniversary of your independence on August 6.
Jamaica plays an important role as a regional leader, most recently with its efforts on economic reform. We look forward to strengthened collaboration between our countries on security, prosperity, diplomacy, energy, education, and health - as underscored in the United States-Caribbean Strategic Engagement Act.
