World press members accredited to the Friends of Seychelles - Press program continues to grow

World press members accredited to the Friends of Seychelles - Press program continues to grow ( After having heard the Seychelles Tourism CEO, Alain St.Ange, present membership certificates to ten members of the “Friends of Seychelles - Press" program at the Seychelles World Travel Market (WTM) evening in London, Mr. St.Ange was in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, this week to present membership certificates to two of the country's respected press personalities.

Joyce Mhaville, the Managing Director of ITV (Independent Television Ltd) Capital Television, Radio One, and Capital Radio, and Joseph Kusaga of Clouds Entertainment were presented with their membership certificates at a Seychelles Evening in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, in the presence of Dr. Ladislaus Komba, the Permanent Secretary at the Tanzania Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism; Mrs. Maryvonne Pool, the Seychelles Consul in Tanzania and Tourism Ambassador; and Ms. Sharon Rosalie, the Tourism Board's Marketing Executive for East Africa.

“The 'Friends of Seychelles - Press' program is a special press club for journalists who know Seychelles, who understand Seychelles, and who appreciate the unique mid-ocean islands," Alain St.Ange said in Dar es Salaam when he was presenting membership certificates to the two Tanzanian press personalities.

This latest innovation is part of what Seychelles is calling their “Seychelles brand" style of tourism, which according to Alain St.Ange is centered on people. This new vision of tourism was launched by the island's President James Michel recently. President Michel also holds the tourism portfolio for the creole tourist islands of the Seychelles.

Alain St.Ange explained that the program is not for a TV station or for a newspaper of magazine, but it is for people behind the computer or camera bringing news out or for those responsible, making it possible for news to be aired. The Seychelles Tourism CEO confirmed in Dar es Salaam that members of the “Friends of Seychelles - Press" program will be invited to Seychelles in early March 2011 for their first general meeting in time for them to also be present for the opening ceremony of the 2011 Seychelles “Carnaval International de Victoria."
