On the Occasion of the Republic of Cape Verde's National Day

Message from US Secretary of State John Kerry 


Press Statement
Washington, DC
July 4, 2013


On behalf of all Americans, I send my best wishes to Cape Verdeans as they celebrate 38 years of independence on July 5.

As a New Englander, I am keenly aware of the historic contributions of Cape Verdeans in America, and of the many binding ties that our people share.

As someone who represented Massachusetts for 30 years, I know that nothing links our countries more closely than the presence of half a million Americans of Cape Verdean descent, concentrated in southeastern New England where they began to settle in the 1700s.

With a common identity as nations of immigrants and entrepreneurs, we cherish freedom, democracy, and good governance. By providing renewable technologies and creating access to markets, we look forward to helping Cape Verde emerge as a global leader in energy independence and as an ideal place to grow and invest.

The United States is a proud partner of Cape Verde, which has become one of Africa’s greatest political and economic success stories.

Our second Millennium Challenge Corporation compact, worth over $66 million, is evidence of our abiding commitment to that relationship. We are also pleased with our expanding collaboration on a number of regional and maritime security issues.

The United States hopes to play an even stronger role as a friend and ally in achieving our common goals and enjoying greater benefits of peace and prosperity in the coming year.

Fourth of July Message from Minister Jorge Borges to Secretary Kerry

Minister Jorge Borges, Cape Verde’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, sent a message to US Secretary of State John Kerry, to congratulate all Americans for celebrating one more National Day this July 4th.

In his letter, Minister Borges noted that the occasion was an opportunity to convey “… sincere congratulations and best wishes of further successful development and prosperity…” to the American nation.

The minister further recalled the recent White House visit of Cape Verde’s Prime Minister José Neves , which “stood as an important policy dialogue moment to address and to agree on issues to enhance the already excellent level of bilateral relations between the two governments”.   

The Capeverdeans will celebrate their Independence Day one day after the Americans, on July 5th.
