Vanilla Islands of the Indian Ocean set to consolidate its way forward

Vanilla Islands of the Indian Ocean set to consolidate its way forward (Forimmediaterelease.net) The recent Vanilla Islands Ministerial Meeting that was held in the Seychelles brought renewed determination from ministers or regional president of Mauritius, the Seychelles and Reunion Islands, and head of tourism from Madagascar for the consolidation of the way forward for the regional organization.

Mauritius is set to take over the presidency of the regional body when Mr. Xavier-Luc Duval, the Deputy Prime Minister of Mauritius, takes over the Presidency of the Vanilla Islands from Madagascar in early June. It was Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, who held the position of President of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands when that regional organization was launched. The Seychelles Minister was then voted in for a second mandate before passing the Presidency on to Didier Robert, the President of the region of Reunion. In early June, it is Mr. Xavier-Luc Duval, the Deputy Prime Minister of Mauritius, who will be taking over the Presidency from Madagascar.

At the recent Seychelles meeting, it was agreed that the time was right for the tourism heads of the Indian Ocean to work even closer together to consolidate the Indian Ocean region as the new tourism region of the world. Xavier-Luc Duval, Alain St.Ange, and Didier Robert all three agreed to put even more effort in the development of cruise tourism in the Indian Ocean. They also agree to look at innovative ways to push cultural events forward, among many other points that will now appear on the agenda for the Minister's Meeting that will take place in Mauritius in early June.

The CEO of the Regional Organization remains Pascal Viroleau, the former head of Reunion Island Tourism (IRT).
