New president of Seychelles meets with former heads of state

Oct 18, 2016

New Seychelles President Danny Rollen Faure said that it is important that the first personalities he meets as the new President, are the former Heads of State, who have played a significant role in the history of Seychelles and that they will continue to do so in promoting Seychelles in international fora and also give advice on national development.

President Faure held his first official meeting this morning at State House with two former Heads of State - President James Alix Michel and President James Richard Mancham. President France Albert Rene sent his best wishes to President Faure, as he was unable to attend the meeting on this occasion.

“I’m very happy to benefit from the wisdom of two former Heads of State, and I’m very happy that they have shown their willingness to continue to help Seychelles and my Government in the promotion of peace, security, the blue economy, and climate change, where we are very strong as a nation. So we will have two very important advocates in these fields,” said President Faure, following the meeting.

They discussed the importance of the structure of the State, several matters concerning international relations, as well as national reconciliation efforts.

Seychelles is a founding member of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP).
