Seychelles tourism past and present meet in Dublin in Ireland

Seychelles tourism past and present meet in Dublin in Ireland ( In the early 1980s it was the then President of France Albert Rene of the Seychelles who held the portfolio of tourism for the islands when he contracted John Enright through the Irish Tourism Board to relaunch the Seychelles tourism industry. John Enright arrived from the Cayman Islands with new dynamism, and he created the Seychelles Tourism Board with a new team of Seychellois working alongside him.

Alain St.Ange, the current Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, was appointed John Enright’s Assistant to the Director of Tourism.

Many years later when the current President of the Seychelles, Mr. James Michel, took over tourism portfolio in his government, Alain St.Ange was appointed CEO of the Tourism Board to again relaunch the island’s tourism industry after the economic crash in the main tourist markets of the Seychelles was seen to be impacting the island’s tourism industry.

After the John Enright era, Alain St.Ange, a hotelier and tourism marketing personality by profession, had moved to the private sector and more recently had been working alongside Louis D’Offay, the Chairman of the Seychelles Hospitality&Tourism Association (SHTA), to earn recognition of this private sector tourism body as the official representative for the industry.

John Enright and Minister Alain St.Ange met at a press conference in Dublin when the Seychelles Minister was positioning the Seychelles as the holiday destination for would-be Irish holiday makers. Past and present is the way the press described this reunion, and it was also an opportunity for John Enright and Minister St.Ange to reflect on the past when they worked together and to discuss tourism as it is today.

Minister Alain St.Ange has invited John Enright to revisit the Seychelles where they will be able to again meet.

The importance of tourism for the Seychelles has earned this industry the respect of being the pillar of the Seychelles economy.
