Seychelles seeks expertise with La Reunion island to develop a Vanilla exhibition cultivation at Domaine de Val des Pres

Seychelles seeks expertise with La Reunion island to develop a Vanilla exhibition cultivation at Domaine de Val des Pres (Forimmediaterelease.net) Seychelles explored the possibility of venturing into a Vanilla exhibition cultivation with the help from the neighboring island knows as the Bourbon island.

La Reunion island’s attractive scent of vanilla is today well-known across the world. The unique edible orchis that gives an irreplaceable taste to many dishes has been the object of discussion between the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, and the Vice President of the General Council of La Reunion Island, Mr. Robert Roland.

Minister St.Ange had spoken about the potential for Seychelles to use the expertise from La Reunion island, which possesses more than a history, but an insular culture of vanilla cultivation.

“Seychelles could forge the existing regional cooperation and to develop new grounds of partnership. Seychelles is producing vanilla in a small scale, and if we could use the La Reunion island expertise in launching an exhibition vanilla center at the artisanal village at Domaine de Val des Pres, it could help encourage others in growing the orchid that was once a cash crop of the islands. La Digue is one of the few islands in Seychelles still producing vanilla commercially. We need to expand on this making it more of an activity for us the Seychellois.” Minister St.Ange said.

Mr. Robert Roland, the Vice President of the General Council of La Reunion, welcomed the idea as “an interesting project, which could be well integrated into the regional cooperation between Seychelles and La Reunion” saying that the brand Bourbon islands, making reference to the commercial aspect of vanilla within the Indian Ocean islands, has historical, cultural, and commercial assets, which needs to be protected and which eventually could also benefit the Seychelles.

Mr. Robert Roland has also spoken about other projects such as cultural and tourism exchanges between Seychelles and La Reunion.
Minister St.Ange also raised the plan by his Ministry to revamp the “La Francophonie” 2013 celebrations in Seychelles, adding that La Reunion, which is also a champion in the promotion of Creole and of culture in the region, is invited to be part of this manifestation.
