Seychelles and UAE deliver concrete example of partnership between Africa and Arab states

Seychelles and UAE deliver concrete example of partnership between Africa and Arab states ( Following his recent participation in the Afro-Arab Summit in Sirte, Libya, Jean-Paul Adam, Seychelles Minister of Foreign Affairs, attended a special event today in Dubai, where a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Seychelles Tourism Board and the Emirates Group was signed to provide for enhanced cooperation in marketing of the Seychelles Islands destination.

The Minister noted that the signature of the MOU represented a concrete example of how African and Arab countries could cooperate to mutually develop their economies as recommended in the recent Afro-Arab Summit declaration concluded in Sirte on Sunday.

Minister Adam witnessed the ceremony where Mr. Alain St. Ange, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board and eTurboNews ambassador, and Mr. Majid Al Mualla, senior vice president of the Emirates Group signed the agreement, which takes the exposure of “the Seychelles Brand" to new heights, particularly in the context of new and developing markets.

“Our efforts to build on [Seychelles] President Michel’s principle of active economic diplomacy include the need to explore new markets for our tourism industry and also open new avenues to create wealth for the Seychellois people,” Minister Adam commented.

The Minister added that as the world recovers from recession, many African countries are looking to the Arab world, and particularly the Gulf, to be able to sustain their growth and develop their economies. He noted that Seychelles’ recent stronger economic performance was in large part due to investment from the Gulf region, and that it was important that Seychelles continue to tap into these opportunities.
