The CARICOM countries share the common value of democracy with Japan, and understand and support Japan's position in the international arena. In addition, many island nations face common issues such as being easily affected by natural disasters, and they are important partners in Japan in the fields of environment and disaster prevention.

Introducing the national anthems of the Caribbean countries
The Association for Promotion of International Cooperation (APIC) has been inviting VIPs from these countries to visit Japan, studying abroad for a short period of time, and inviting members of the press to promote friendly and cooperative relationships with the island nations of the Caribbean. In addition, we have carried out projects such as holding environmental seminars in these countries.
In order to deepen the understanding of the national situation of the Caribbean countries, we are planning to introduce the national anthems of the Caribbean countries. With the cooperation of "Classic Live of One Million People", we have compiled the national anthem performances of the Caribbean countries by excellent performers. Although these areas may be geographically distant and unfamiliar, I sincerely hope that exposure to the national anthems of these countries will increase interest in the Caribbean.
In addition, "Classic Live of One Million People"has recorded the national anthem of the Pacific Islandsand it is linked to this recording as part of APIC’s promotion of its friendship and cooperation promotion projects within the region. We would like to invite you to take a look at this link as well.
Furthermore, the national anthem series of the Pacific Islands is a project to help connect the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Japanese host towns of Nishinoshi-ma, Amacho, and Chibu Village of Ogi Islands, Shimane Prefecture, with the ath-letes from the Federated States of Micronesia. We hope that the national anthems of the Caribbean nations will bring momentum to welcoming the athletes from these states as well.
