Chinese Association & Union of Seychelles meets Minister of Tourism & Culture ( The newly-elected Chairman of the Chinese Association and Union of Seychelles, Mr. Charlie Ng, accompanied by Mr. Vincent Kim Koon and Mr. Andre Lownam, paid a courtesy call on the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, Mr. Alain St.Ange, in the presence of Mr. Wang of the Chinese Embassy. The meeting at the Ministry's Offices at the national Cultural center in Victoria was also attended by PS – Culture Benjamine Rose, and PS – Tourism Anne Lafortune.

The discussion between the Chinese Association and Union of Seychelles and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture centered on the reorganization of the Association representing the Chinese community of Seychelles, on the help being received from the Chinese Embassy in the revamping of the Benezet Street Chinese Pagoda and on annually celebrating the Chinese Spring Festival in Seychelles.

Minister St.Ange congratulated the new committee of the Chinese Association and Union of Seychelles and committed to work with them alongside the Chinese Embassy. It was agreed at the meeting at the first Chinese Spring Festival Seychelles will be on January 31, 2014 which will also see the laying of the foundation stone for the new Chinese Pagoda on Benezet Street Victoria.

Minister Alain St.Ange said at the end of the meeting that this new partnership with the Seychelles Chinese community brings the Department of Culture into direct liaison with the five branches of the Seychellois people. “We have been celebrating the La Francophonie and the Commonwealth. We celebrate FetAfrik, and we celebrate Festival Kreol. Recently we agreed with the High Commission of India and with the local Indian community to mark an India Day, and now with this resolution to cooperate to mark a Chinese day, we are touching the fifth and last branch of what makes us the melting pot of cultures – the Seychellois Creole people," Minister St.Ange said.

A follow-up meeting is planned with the Chinese Ambassador in the very near future.
