SEYCHELLES AND JAPAN FURTHER STRENGTHENS COOPERATION WITH AGREEMENT

The governments of Seychelles and Japan have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the conditional transfer of suspected pirates by the Japanese naval forces engaged in the fight against piracy in the Indian Ocean.

The agreement was signed on Thursday 18th December by the Minister for Internal Affairs, Mr. Joel Morgan and the Japanese Ambassador to Seychelles, Mr. Tatsushi Terada. The signing took place on board one of the Japanese naval ships involved in the anti-piracy operations in the Indian Ocean which is currently docked in Port Victoria.

The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding further strengthens the collaboration between Seychelles and Japan as said by Minister Morgan. “This exemplifies the really strong role that the people and the governments of both Japan and Seychelles are playing in the fight against piracy and in bringing peace and stability to the western Indian Ocean.”

The Seychelles economy depends largely on the maritime sector with fisheries, maritime, trade and most recently the development of the blue economy.

The Seychelles Tourism Board has organised a workshop for its partners in the tourism industry to provide an insight into the preferences of Chinese visitors.

Visitors arriving from china continue to increase and businessmen must consolidate the market.

The Seychelles tourism board has organised a workshop for its partners in the tourism trade. The workshop was held at the Savoy hotel at Beau Vallon.

Several representatives from the tourism sector from Mahe and Praslin were present for the workshop. Representatives from various tourism offices and agencies from china gave an insight into the preferences of Chinese visitors with the aim of getting the local agencies better cater to the Chinese clientele.

In her opening remark at the Savoy hotel at Beau Vallon on Thursday 18th December, the Chief Executive Officer of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Ms. Sherin Naiken said that Seychelles is not targeting mass tourism from china but is rather looking to project a steady growth that will sustain the economy’s growth rate. “Our aim at the tourism board is to be able to develop a good tourism market within china with the right segment. We have set our target and tourism arrival figures from china and we are working to achieve this target.”

China is a relatively new market to Seychelles as part of a diversifying market strategy embarked upon 3 years ago. China is currently the fastest growing tourism market for Seychelles at a rate of 85% and growth has been from 500 visitors 2 years ago to 15000.
