Saint Kitts and Nevis has taken a decision to join with fellow Caribbean countries to observe July 4 as a national holiday, to commemorate the Fiftieth (50th) Anniversary of the establishment of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

One of the decisions emanating from the Forty-Fourth (44th) Regular Meeting of the CARICOM Heads of Government in The Bahamas in February of this year, was the declaration of July 4, 2023, a National Holiday in all member states.

The Community will celebrate its golden jubilee under the theme `50 Years Strong: A Solid Foundation to Build on’.

An official message from the Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Terrance Drew will be broadcast on CARICOM Day, July 4, 2023, via traditional and social media platforms to shed light on the myriad of accomplishments of our flagship regional integration organization.
