Representatives of the different tourism offices present from the different islands of the region were also invited to present their views and present also statistics of visitor arrival numbers from the different tourism source markets for the region. The meeting was also the opportunity for Robert Desvaux, the President of Mauritius Tourism, to update the delegates present on the Hotel Classification program being undertaken by the island in 2016.

The Vanilla Islands Ministerial Meeting agreed to pursue the approach of moving forward to make the Indian Ocean the sought-after cruise ship destination. A decision was also reached of pursuing discussions that would see the creation of a low-cost airline in order to ensure better air connectivity for the region. Further discussions on this would be addressed at the next meeting where studies have already been undertaken and would be table and analyzed.
