March 6, 2018

On behalf of President Trump and the people of the United States, I want to convey our warmest wishes to the people of Ghana on the 61st anniversary of the Republic’s independence.

Ghana and the United States are strong partners, and we share important values such as the ideals of democracy, human rights, free enterprise, peace, and stability. Our longstanding partnership is based on our mutual interest in regional peace, security, and prosperity. As a leading democracy on the African continent, we count on Ghana to remain a model for the region.

On this special occasion, I send my best wishes for a wonderful independence celebration.
