The Ministry of Tourism and Culture is employing various strategies to market Seychelles as a holiday destination.

The Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St. Ange elaborated on these marketing strategies during this week’s sitting of the National Assembly. He explained that these strategies are aimed at ensuring creativity in the promotion of the tourism industry. The cultural heritage of Seychelles is one such tools being used to promote Seychelles internationally.

Minister St. Ange also added that the Ministry is looking to increase the number of visitors coming into Seychelles via cruise ships. Discussions are ongoing with various cruise ship operators in a bid to encourage them to include Port Victoria as stopping point.

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture is also developing new policies which will include all strategies employed in the tourism sector.


Sustainable tourism in French speaking small islands developing states is the theme of an ongoing 3-day regional workshop.

The workshop is the second phase of an initiative of the Organisation of French speaking countries aimed at helping the small islands states practice sustainable development linked to tourism.

To illustrate Seychelles’ stride towards achieving sustainable tourism development when launching the workshop, Minister St. Ange made reference to the announcement of a moratorium placed on the construction of large hotels on Mahe and inner islands by President James Michel in his recent National Day address.

The workshop is part of a resolution spearhead by Seychelles during a summit for Heads of States of French speaking countries held in Dakar,  Senegal last year. This was followed by a first workshop soon after aimed at identifying the difficulties preventing small island states from practising sustainable development linked to tourism.

The ongoing workshop which is part of the second phase of this initiative concerns identifying areas where these countries will need expert help and how the organisation of French speaking countries can help through negotiations with such big organisations as the World Bank and the European Union.

The Wild - mardi

Un extraordinaire soap opéra Sud Africain alliant glamour, intrigues et passions dans l’extraordinaire beauté sauvage du Krufer park. Il a pour principal décor une vaste réserve abritant un luxueux hotel ; Le Dinaledi Lodge. C’est l'histoire de trois familles que tout oppose à priori : les Lebones, les Van Reenens et les Tladis. Ces différentes familles ont pourtant en commun un morceau de terre. En raison de nombreux conflits antérieurs, les familles ont du mal à instaurer cohésion et confiances entre elles, mais elles restent liées par: le « DINALEDI LODGE ».

The Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change has met with stakeholders in a workshop to discuss and develop it's Intended Nationally Determined Contributions.

This is a report that Seychelles has to submit to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change in preparation for the Climate Change Summit to be held in Paris, France in December.

The Principal Secretary for Energy and Climate Change, Wills Agricole officially opened the workshop on Thursday 2nd July. He stressed on the crucial importance of the Paris outcome. He cited some possible outcomes envisioned by Seychelles at the conclusion of the Paris summit. “Firstly agrees that one part of the Paris package should consist of an ambitious legally binding protocol under the convention capable of limiting warming to below 1.5 degrees. Secondly, in addition to addressing mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology development and transfer; transparency of action and support; capacity building in a balanced manner. The 2015 agreement must also enter and give permanence to the loss and damage. This is our heart of small island developing states. Thirdly we also see a series of supporting decisions as part of the Paris package. The decision must address gaps in the current climate finance architecture and flows including a significant increase of support for adaptation projects in most vulnerable countries.”

The preparatory work for the Climate Change Summit is being financed the French government.
