Courtesy call on Seychelles President by the IFAD President ( H.E. Mr. Kanayo F. Nwanze, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), paid a courtesy call on President James Michel this afternoon at State House. Mr. Nwanze and his delegation are on a working visit in Seychelles upon the invitation of the government. He was accompanied by Mr. Perin St.Ange, Regional Director of the Division for East and Southern Africa, and David Paqui, Events Officer of media relations and external communications of the communications division from IFAD.

To note, this is the first official visit of the President of IFAD to the Seychelles on official business. Mr. Nwanze thanked President Michel for the warm welcome he had received and long-term partnership that exists between Seychelles and the agency.

“IFAD is the right partner to help us to grow further in the future where our food security is concerned, and we hope to bring the cooperation at a higher level with close partnership with the agency,” said President Michel.

President Michel and Mr. Nwanze have pursued discussions in regards to Seychelles' re-engagement with IFAD as there have been very little activities for the past fifteen years and IFAD’S willingness to listen and see how to support the Seychelles in its food and security agenda, particularly as it addresses the role of small producers whether it is in crops, fisheries, livestock, etc. which is the area where IFAD has a lot of experience. He also briefed the President about the different meeting held with the local high officials and supported projects such as Climate Smart Small Holder Agriculture (CLISSA) proposed through the Ministry of Natural Resources and Industry. Mr. Nwanze congratulated the President for the new appointment of Mr. Perin St.Ange who is now the Regional Director of the Division for East and Southern Africa.

President Michel expressed the interest in how small island states of the Indian Ocean can come together in terms of a sub-regional approach with a concept to maximize the use of its resources, that is the blue economy. A concept highly supported by the President of IFAD.
