On June 26 the United States of America congratulated the people of Madagascar on their 58th year of independence.
On behalf of President Trump and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Madagascar on the 58th anniversary of your independence.
This year, the Malagasy people are counting on their leaders to work together to emerge from the most recent political situation even stronger as a nation. In the United States, we look forward to your upcoming election as another crucial step along this journey of democracy. We hope to continue to work with your government to expand your economy, improve your social development indicators, and protect Madagascar’s native fauna and flora.
We look forward to many more years of cooperation in support of economic growth and development that is mutually beneficial to our two countries.
