On behalf of President Trump and the American people, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Ghana as you celebrate the 60th anniversary of your independence on March 6.
Building on the momentum generated by our recent respective elections and changes in administrations, the United States remains committed to a strong partnership with Ghana. The United States looks forward to working with the Akufo-Addo administration to expand economic opportunity, free enterprise, peace, and stability. Based on our mutual interest in the region’s future, we will continue to look to Ghana for its leadership and respect for democratic principles.
As you celebrate this historic day, know that the United States stands with Ghana in honoring your independence as a nation rich in tradition and full of possibilities, and sends warm wishes to the government and people of Ghana for a joyous independence celebration.
