Caricom Secretariat, Guyana—Caricom Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, in a congratulatory message to Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley on T&T’s 55th anniversary of Independence, has praised the country for its progress at the national level and its significant contribution to promoting regional integration.

LaRocque said the people’s creativity and resilience has ensured that this country maintains a dynamism that has secured for it a place of prominence in many fields, including culture, sports, academia and diplomacy.

He also credits T&T as a founding member of Caricom with providing significant promotion of regional integration, particularly in the areas of energy and security, for which it plays a lead role on the Quasi-Cabinet established by Caricom Heads of Government.

Noting that T&T has enjoyed “great economic progress over the years, which has contributed to the social and economic development of the region, as a whole”, LaRocque added that Caricom places great significance in this country’s dedication towards the advancement of its objectives and “stands ready to assist the country in its thrust towards continued development.”
