Friends Of The Press

Seychelles recognizes Dubai journalist

May 04, 2011

The "Friends of Seychelles-Press" program is an initiative launched by the Seychelles Tourism Board some two years ago to develop a loyalty brand for Seychelles by members of the press who knows the Seychelles, who understands the Seychelles, and who appreciates the unique attributes of the Seychelles. "We wanted to have a group of press who would be invited to know the Seychelles well so that they in turn understood our aims and objectives and appreciated our unique selling points," Alain St.Ange said after presenting Monika Grzesik with her certificate in Dubai.

A Dubai-based journalist, Monika Grzesik, from one of the renowned travel newpapers of Dubai has been appointed a member of the exclusive "Friends of Seychelles-Press" program. Monika received her certificate this week from Alain St.Ange, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, in the presence of Elsia Grandcourt, the Tourism Board's Deputy CEO, and Julie Muirhead, the Board's Dubai-based Manager, during the 2011 Arabian Travel Market (ATM) Tourism Trade Fair in Dubai.

"Monika has traveled to Seychelles often and has published many a report on our country," Alain St.Ange said.

Seychelles today has many members of their "Friends of Seychelles-Press" program in the four corners of the world. The group continues to grow but is limited to only a couple of journalists per region.
