Seychelles Minister St.Ange and Mr. Serge Clair of the Mauritius island of Rodrigues meet (Forimmediaterelease.net) Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, and Mr. Serge Clair, the Island Commissioner from the Mauritius island of Rodrigues, have met at the Ministry of Tourism and Culture at the National Cultural Center in Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles.

Minister St.Ange used the meeting to welcome Mr. Serge Clair to Seychelles and to the 2012 Festival Kreol, the 27th edition of this event staged in Victoria, the capital of the world of Creoles. Mr. Serge Clair is heading the Rodrigues island delegation to the festival, and he arrived but one day before the official opening of the festival in the Seychelles.

The Seychelles Minister and the Island Commissioner from the Mauritius island of Rodrigues discussed closer cooperation between the two islands in the field of tourism and culture among many points raised. Rodrigues was recently admitted as an island of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Regional Organization alongside Seychelles, Mauritius, La Reunion, Madagascar, Mayotte, Comoros, Nosy Bay, Praslin, and La Digue.

Assistance for Rodrigues in the field of archives was discussed as was Rodrigues’ participation in the February Carnaval International de Victoria in Seychelles to fly their flag alongside the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands of La Reunion, Madagascar, and Seychelles in the carnival parade in Victoria.

“The discussions with Mr. Serge Clair was open and extremely cordial. We both felt that it was important to work together and to be supportive of each other. Mr. Serge Clair is looking at an event for Rodrigues in the context of the Vanilla Islands group, and we have confirmed that we shall work with them to increase visibility of their event as soon as they are ready to launch it. Tourism marketing is an area that we have accepted to work closely with Rodrigues to ensure that the visibility of the tropical island reaches new heights,” Minister St.Ange said.
