India’s $ 68 million grant to help Seychelles fund police station, Attorney General’s office, community projects

A new police station with a forensic laboratory – a first in the island nation – and a new building for the Attorney General’s office are expected to be constructed in Seychelles through a grant from the Indian government.

The grant of approximately $68 million will also be used to build a new government house – to accommodate around 400 government offices – as well as several other community projects.

A new state of the art convention centre will be constructed to replace the old International Conference Centre in Victoria. The centre will have convention halls and meeting rooms with capacity to host international conferences, Indian High Commissioner to Seychelles Ausaf Sayeed told SNA last week.

All the new infrastructure will be built at Ile du Port, a reclaimed island on the outskirts of Victoria, the capital city of the main island of Mahe.
