On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Dominica as they celebrate 31 years as an independent nation on November 3. The bonds of friendship that unite our two countries are based on a shared commitment to democracy and development. The United States values our broad partnership with Dominica that enhances the security and prosperity of all our people.
