Mancham from the Seychelles to attend 8th World Chamber of Commerce in Doha, Qatar and to participate in General Assembly of CAPDI in Sulawesi, Indonesia

Mancham from the Seychelles to attend 8th World Chamber of Commerce in Doha, Qatar  and to participate in General Assembly of CAPDI in Sulawesi, Indonesia ( It is now confirmed that the founding President of the Seychelles, Sir James R. Mancham, will attend the 8th World Chambers Congress which is to take place in Doha, Qatar, on April 22-25 at the invitation of the US Arab Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the International Chamber of Commerce, the ICC World Chambers Federation, and the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Held every 2 years in a different region of the world, the Congress is the only international forum for chamber and business leaders to share best practiced experiences, exchange insights, develop networks, address the latest business issues affecting their communities, and learn about new areas of innovation from chambers around the world. Sir James will hand carry a letter from Mr. Marco Francis, the newly-elected Chairman of SCCI, expressing the interest of his chamber to become associated with the chambers hosting the Congress.

Following his participation in the World Congress in Doha, Sir James is to participate in the Second General Assembly of the Centrist Asia Pacific Democrats International (CAPDI) in his capacity as Vice President and a member of the Governing Council of the organization. This conference will be held in Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia, from May 20-21, 2013 under the theme, “mobilizing governments, political parties, and civil societies to promote peace and reconciliation and to fight climate change in Asia.”

CAPDI is perhaps the first organization in the Asia Pacific bringing together political parties and key institutions of democratic civil society, people’s organizations, think tanks, inter-faith organizations, business leaders, and youth associations under one roof in a common house with the objectives of promoting good governance and fighting corruption and poverty; the empowerment of youth, women, and minority groups; protection of human rights; and the strengthening of democracy, the rule of law; and the fight against climate chang; and environmental degradation.

Two Nobel peace prize laureates, former President and former Prime Minister Jose Ramos Horta of East Timor, and Daw Aung Sang Suu Kyi of Myanmar, have recently joined CAPDI’s Council of Eminent Persons. The invitation for Sir James to participate was extended by Mr. Jose de Venecia, President of CAPDI, former Speaker of the House of the Philippines; Mr. Sok An, Senior Vice President of CAPDI, who is Deputy Prime Minister in the Royal Government of Cambodia; Mr. Jusuf Kalla, Chairman of CAPDI, former Vice President of Indonesia; and Mr. Mushahid Hussan Sayed, Secretary General of CAPDI of Islamabad, Pakistan.

In a statement this morning, Sir James said that his active participation in CAPDI reflects Seychelles’ growing appreciation of its Asian dimension in line with the declared interest of the government of President Michel to seek a seat on the Security Council of the UN.
