Seychelles and the international press on the 2012 Festival Kreol

Seychelles and the international press on the 2012 Festival Kreol ( Seychelles has always played the press as no other tourism destination to get itself more visible. This has been so ever since Alain St.Ange took over the reins at the island’s Tourism Board as Director of Marketing initially and it continued after his promotion as the Tourism Board’s CEO.

Alain St.Ange is currently the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture and his openness to the press has not changed. He actually surprises the press by calling a press conference at most tourism trade fairs in markets considered key tourism markets for the islands he represents. Minister St.Ange is also a founding member of the ICTP (International Council for Tourism Partners), the organization with over 500 members right across the world who are serious and committed in the continued development of the tourism industry.

It is the Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture who is responsible for the organization of the 2012 “Festival Kreol” in Seychelles, and it was the reason why so many members of the international press were in Seychelles this week as the Minister had personally ensured that as the event is organized, members of the press would be invited to tell the world of the Festival Kreol that is taking place in Victoria, the capital of the world of Creoles.

This 2102 edition of the island’s Festival Kreol is their 27th edition, and this was the main theme for a press conference in the meeting room at the Ministry of Tourism&Culture at the National Cultural Center in Victoria. Minister Alain St.Ange was interviewed by Tele Kreol from La Reunion, followed by French TV and a series of newspapers, magazines, and radio stations.

Minister Alain St.Ange explained the importance for the Creole-speaking world to rally to promote and to defend the culture they all have because of historical links. “We have something that is unique to us. Our culture is wide and varied as we remain the melting pot of cultures. Our people, our Creole language, our music, our food, our art in the different forms they represent are all unique to us, and we need to unite to say that we are proud of this Creole heritage that is ours,” Minister Alain St.Ange said.

This year Mauritius is represented by Minister Mireille Martin and a delegation from Mauritius; the Mauritius island of Rodrigues is represented by its Chief Commissioner of the island of Rodrigues, Mr. Louis Serge Clair and a delegation from Rodrigues; and La Reunion is represented by Mme. Jacqueline Farreyol, the President of La Reunion Tourism and her delegation from La Reunion. The musicians and cultural groups from these three islands were joined by cultural groups from Seychelles and by Mme. Primerose Obeegadoo of the Miss Mauritius National Pageant who was accompanied by Biya Beeltah, Miss Mauritius, and Murielle Ravina, Miss Rodrigues. Sherryl Furneau, Miss Seychelles 2012, joined the Seychelles Minister to play host to the visitors to the 2012 Festival Kreol.

Other international delegations in Seychelles for the 2012 Festival Kreol are from Canada, Germany, and Japan who are joining the Creole-speaking islands for the international colloquium. Journalists reporting on Festival Kreol have touched down in Seychelles.

Minister St.Ange explained to the press that he was continuing to work with many other islands where Creole is also spoken, such as with Mrs. Karine Roy-Camille of Martinique to get more Creole people together for the 2013 Festival Kreol in Victoria, the capital of the world of Creoles.
