Seychelles Tourism Minister urges Chinese students to become good ambassadors for the islands

Seychelles Tourism Minister urges Chinese students to become good ambassadors for the islands ( Tourism and Culture Minister of Seychelles, Alain St.Ange, has urged the 17 students from the Hebei Tourism Vocational College in China to become good ambassadors for Seychelles when they go back to their country.

He said this when meeting the students, who form part of the second group of hospitality management students on a six-month work attachment in Seychelles as part of the memorandum of understanding signed between the Seychelles Tourism Academy and the Hebei Tourism Vocational College.

Minister St.Ange said it is important to get these students to appreciate Seychelles and to enjoy what makes the country a tourism destination.

“China is now an important source market for Seychelles, so I hope that when you leave our country, you can become good ambassadors to Seychelles. Feel at home, enjoy our islands, and do benefit from this experience,” Minister St.Ange said as he explained the continued future collaboration with China which he said should help bring direct non-stop flights between the two countries to grow this tourism market for Seychelles .

He added that China and Seychelles have developed a good bond over the years, and through this accord, this relationship will further be strengthened.

“It is rewarding to see students from Hebei working in Seychelles to have experience prior to starting their career in China,” he said.

As part of the memorandum of understanding, Sun Jai, a lecturer, is also in Seychelles for a period of six months to teach Chinese.

Meeting the minister at the ministry’s conference room at the ESPACE building, Sun Jai described the Seychellois people as friendly, adding that the country has a unique beauty.

She also echoed words of thanks to the Principal of the academy, Flavien Joubert, who accompanied them to the meeting with Minister St.Ange.

The students are doing their work attachments at Ephelia, Kempinski, Raffles Praslin, and Sainte Anne Resort.

Mr. Joubert said the group is also being used as a marketing tool for Chinese students to study full-time at the Seychelles Tourism Academy when the second phase of the institution’s infrastructure is completed.

One full-time lecturer of the Seychelles Tourism Academy who completed three months of a work attachment in Hebei last month is now back in the country.

Part of this accord is also for these Chinese management students to guide Seychelles on the requirements of the new Chinese market that the Seychelles Tourism Board is tapping intp, and on how to meet the needs of tourists from China.
