Seychelles President Michel creates National Project Monitoring Unit ( The Seychelles President Mr. James Michel has created a special unit to ensure the proper implementation of Seychelles 2020 vision. It will operate under the authority of President Michel and will also provide the necessary drive and coordination that is required to ensure that the goals of Seychelles2020 are accomplished.

The President has appointed the following persons to form part of the National Project Monitoring Unit (NPMU):

Ambassador Barry Faure - Chairman
Mr. Sebastien Pillay - Secretary
Mr. Christian Lionnet, Mr. Alain Azhan, Mr. Philip Morin, Mrs. Sherin Renaud, Mr. Yves Choppy, and Mr. Rupert Simeon - Members

The NPMU is mandated to liaise with all agencies and persons in the country, public or private, and facilitate broad cross-agency coordination, monitor implementation, and keep the President and Cabinet informed of the progress. Based on such reports, the President may direct Ministers to adopt new policies or projects, or to amend on existing ones. Responsibilities of government in delivering on Seychelles2020 vision are assigned to individual Ministers for delivery on tasks falling within their portfolios.

As President Michel statedm “Seychelles2020 can be achieved only through the close collaboration of all concerned, the public sector, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and civil society.”

Furthermore, President Michel has welcomed a proposal from the Smart Partnership National Dialogue for the creation of a national coordination committee to oversee the implementation of the roadmap for achieving Seychelles2020. The President agrees that this committee should be private sector and civil society inclusive. The President will consider the final proposals of the National Dialogue on how it intends to assist with the implementation of Seychelles2020 upon the completion of the proposals.
