The two sister islands in the indian Icean are not only very close together, but both speak the same Creole language and have a very close historical past. The two islands are also founding members of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands concept.

Fong Weng-Poorun, the Senior Chief Executive in the Ministry of Tourism and External Communications of Mauritius; Mr. Arnaud Martin, the Chairman of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA); and Mr. Karl Mootoosamy, the CEO of the MTPA on the Mauritius side; and from the Seychelles side, Ms. Sherin Naiken, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board; Mrs. Bernadette Willemin, the Director for Europe for the Seychelles Tourism Board; Mr. Andre Ciseau, the CEO of the Seychelles Ports Authority; and Mrs. Edith Hunzinger, the Seychelles Tourism Board's Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Discussions between Deputy Prime Minister Duval and Minister St.Ange and their delegations were centered on many points that would strengthen the cooperation between these two Indian Ocean Islands. Deputy Prime Minister Duval used that first meeting between himself and his Seychelles counterpart to confirm that Mauritius would this year be represented at the Seychelles annual Carnaval International de Victoria by an important delegation. They also discussed to work more closely to consolidate the work of the Vanilla Islands as well as to undertake joints initiatives to bring out a common hotel grading system and to increase cruise ship business in the Indian Ocean.
