Extra, extra, read all about it! Seychelles Tourism Minister takes to the airwaves

Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture  Jul 25, 2016

The Seychelles Tourism Minister appeared on the News Extra TV program tonight and spoke about continued cooperation between the member states of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands and referred to the coming Ministerial Meeting of the organization that will be held on August 1 on La Reunion Island. Air access between the islands of the Indian Ocean and an air pass between the airlines of the islands are again going to be discussed as well.

On the popular program hosted by Marie-Paule Lesperance on SBC (Seychelles Broadcasting Corporation), Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, gave a state of the islands’ tourism industry.

The Minister also used the meeting to impress on Seychelles the need to safeguard the Seychelles’ impeccable safety label, and he called on Seychellois to keep the islands’ white sandy beaches clean, as they are being showcased in the Tourism Board's marketing documentation. He spoke about keeping the islands’ beaches safe, and raising the need for more lifeguards, as he said that what would be good for tourists in Seychelles, would also be good for the Seychellois. Minister St.Ange analyzed with Marie-Paule Lesperance of SBC the applicable costs touching the Seychelles tourism industry and marketing efforts to keep attracting a fair share of the tourism market to Seychelles from targeted source markets.

"Tourism is the pillar of the Seychelles economy. It is important to state that we have but one tourism industry; we do not have one for the State and another one for the private sector. We have but one tourism industry, and it is for Seychelles," Minister St.Ange said.
