Blue economy, climate change top the agenda between Seychelles, New Zealand.

Seychelles and New Zealand, both members of the Commonwealth, will cooperate in the fields of economic relations, the blue economy, and climate change, the newly accredited High Commissioner said on Tuesday.

Mark Ramsden presented his credentials to the President of the island nation, Danny Faure, at State House.

After the ceremony Ramsden said that the Commonwealth is important for both countries as it provides Seychelles and New Zealand with lines of work they can cooperate on closely.

“One is under the Commonwealth’s Blue Economy Work as this works around ocean acidification. It is a huge issue for small island nations and particularly those with coral reef dependent economies,” said Ramsden.
