World Economic Forum to include Seychelles data


In a surprise move, the World Economic Forum, best known for its annual meeting of major global personalities in Davos, Switzerland, invited the Seychelles to provide data for its 2010/11 report.

With the archipelago‚Äôs main economic activities focusing on tourism and fishing, this will add an interesting perspective to their annual report, coming from a relatively small island country with high emphasis on two mainstream sectors. It is generally thought that tourism in particular has not received the ranking and emphasis it should get in such reports, and with the ongoing success of “marketing Seychelles out of the economic downturn,” the archipelago will undoubtedly make a meaningful contribution and get well-deserved added global recognition out of this participation.
