On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Cote d’Ivoire as you celebrate your national independence on August 7.

The United States is proud to be your partner. I commend your commitment to rebuilding your democratic institutions and creating a strong foundation for economic growth. The new Millennium Challenge Corporation Threshold Program is a clear demonstration of the United States’ support for your nation’s development.

I wish the people of Cote d’Ivoire peace and prosperity in the years ahead.

Bonne fête de l’Indépendance!
