Seychelles tourism in London moves offices and demonstrates close working cooperation between Foreign Affairs and Tourism Ministries

Seychelles tourism in London moves offices and demonstrates close working cooperation between Foreign Affairs and Tourism Ministries (Forimmediaterelease.net) The Seychelles Offices in the United Kingdom are celebrating a new level of cooperation now that the Seychelles Tourism Board and the Seychelles High Commission in London will be sharing the same offices, effective December 1, 2012.

The country’s two official offices, which were operating in different locations in central London, will now operate from their new Knightsbridge address. The Seychelles High Commission has already moved into the new office since September and will be joined by the Seychelles Tourism Board in three weeks' time.

This new cooperation between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture was celebrated last Monday night in a Seychelles Cocktail, as a side event of the World Travel Market in London.

Present at the event were Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture; High Commissioner Marie-Pierre Lloyd, the new Seychelles’ High Commissioner in London; Mr. Bernard Silver, Seychelles Consul in London; staff of both the Seychelles Tourism Board and the Seychelles High Commission; as well as members of the Seychelles trade and other UK partners.

Addressing the guests, Minister St.Ange welcomed the new move by the government to bring the country’s two official offices together, and said this would help to maximize the use of resources and bring better benefits to both organizations.

High Commissioner Lloyd also said she was looking forward to the new cooperation as they have the common goal of representing Seychelles. Minister St.Ange also thanked Seychelles’ consuls, Mr. Silver and Mr. Justin Etzin for their continuous help in raising the profile of Seychelles, both as a country and as a tourism destination. Mr. Silver has worked closely with the Seychelles Tourism Board to bring about this new level of cooperation.

Minister St.Ange also took the opportunity to thank all the trade partners for their support on the UK market during 2012 and said he hoped they would use WTM 2012 to launch new discussions for next year.

The new address for the High Commission and Seychelles Tourist Office is:
4th Floor
11 Grosvenor Crescent
London
SW1X 7EE
