Minister St.Ange, whose Ministry remains the parent Ministry for the National Monuments Board requested the meeting in order to discuss among other matter the way forward for repair works of ageing Victoria Buildings . The Chairman of the Board, Mr Marcel Rosalie is also the Director General at the Department of Culture and he remains a strong supporter for the preservation of the heritage listed buildings and sites.

One such building is the old Equateur Hotel, then situated on the water front of Victoria, located behind the Allied Agency Building but that was demolished last just a couple of years ago.
The Seychelles Monuments Board is also working with the Ministry to relook at the annual budget allocated for the caring and maintaining of the list of monuments seen to be dear to the people and to the Country.
