STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS: SEYCHELLES AN INCREASINGLY PROSPEROUS COUNTRY

“Seychelles is an increasingly prosperous country, a nation that is moving at an unprecedented pace; a nation which despite diversity of views of its people is united and at peace” said President James Michel in the State Of The Nation Address on Thursday 26th February.

President Michel described his yearly State of the Nation Address as a contract with the people of Seychelles. “My State of the Nation Address today is not only a reaffirmation of this contract. It allows me to give an account of what we have done in 2014 and to share with the people my plans and vision.”

During the address, President Michel made reference to the country’s economic performance which he said remains vulnerable to external shocks. “The world economy in 2014 remained fragile, with a particularly poor performance in the Euro Zone which has impacted negatively on the country. “Our gross domestic product grew by 2.8% - smaller than we had predicted.” President Michel attributed the slow growth to a reduction in activities such tourism and industrial production.

As for the second pillar of economy, the fishing industry, President Michel said that the government anticipates that new investments in the fisheries sector will contribute to more value added benefits. He said it will provide a new thrust for the blue economy. Among the new investments in the sector, President Michel made reference to the inauguration of a 120 metre fishing port at Ile du Port; signing of an agreement for the construction of a 425-metre industrial fishing port on Ile du Port and facilities for fish processing on the Providence fishing port.

President Michel noted that despite a generally satisfactory fiscal performance, there are certain things that must be improved. “There are weaknesses in the tax administration system which make it possible for certain individuals or businesses to evade tax payments, to the detriment of state revenues.

In the State of the Nation Address, President Michel also addressed the health system; the education sector.
