A new office representing the Regional Council of Reunion — a French department in the Indian Ocean — opened its doors in Seychelles on Wednesday.
The office is located on the third floor of the Espace building at Ile Du Port — a manmade island on the outskirts of the capital city, Victoria. Its main aim is to facilitate the connection between enterprises in Reunion and the authorities in Seychelles in the private or public sector.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, the president of the Regional Council of Reunion, Didier Robert, said that this is a historical moment and the office will allow the overseas French department to better build on its relationship with Seychelles.
“Already we have accomplished many things together such as the airline connectivity, giving training to professionals in the health sector, and promotion of tourism in the region through the cooperation between the Vanilla Islands,” said Robert.
