The construction of a Fish Processing Plant in the district of Bel Ombre will start at the end of October.

President James Michel visited the reclaimed area at Bel Ombre on Wednesday 23rd September which has been designated for the project.

The Minister for Fisheries and Agriculture, Wallace Cosgrow accompanied the head of state on the visit. He said President Michel’s visit highlights the importance placed on the development of the blue economy.

The Fish Processing Plant project is expected to take 12 months to complete and will provide business opportunities to fishermen and entrepreneurs operating in the northern region Mahe island.

Upon completion, the Bel Ombre Fish Processing Plant will be the second of its kind in Seychelles. The fishing port at Providence boasts such a facility which was inaugurated in 2014.


After a lengthy battle, registered political parties in Seychelles will have access to electronic version of the Voters’ Registration List.

This follows the approval of the Election Amendment Bill 2015 by the National Assembly during its sitting on Tuesday 22nd September.

While presenting the bill to the National Assembly Vice President Danny Faure said the requests for a soft copy of the Voters Register List stirred strong debates between political parties and the Electoral Commission.

With access to electronic version of the Voters’ Registration List, parties with issues pertaining to the list can present their grievances to the Electoral Commission.


The Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change is intensifying efforts to reduce the amount of non-biodegradable waste in the country.

The Ministry is introducing several legislations to that effect. The immediate measures will include controlled importation of plastic bags and ban on non-biodegradable take away containers. It will also regulate the importation of electronic and electrical equipment to limit those considered as sub-standard.

“We’ve been working on some of the measures that we need to take based on the waste policies to put into place a ban on plastic bags made of fossil fuels,” said The Minister for Environment, Energy and Climate Change, Didier Dogley. He added that plastic bags will not be banned completely for convenience purposes but said that the Ministry is looking into the possibility of introducing biodegradable bags that are made 100% biodegradable materials.

In line with the new policy to manage waste introduced last year, the ministry is also working on a new project to turn waste into renewable energy.

The Ministry of Environment has however expressed that a change in mindset should also accompany the policies and legislations in order to manage the amount of waste produced in the country and maintain.



The Supreme Court has ordered the Registrar of Companies to restore the business name Seychelles Airlines.

Judge Gustave Dodin dismissed the reasons the Registrar had presented after it had revoked the name it had registered and confirmed in August 2013.

In his ruling given on Wednesday 23rd September, Judge Dodin described as not sustainable and reasonable, the Registrar's arguments, that the name Seychelles Airlines would mislead the public.

And this, by virtue of the word Seychelles, which could confuse others to believe the private airline was a subsidiary of the national airline, Air Seychelles.
