“The Seychelles-India Day Celebrations is a golden opportunity to give the Indian community living in Seychelles its rightful recognition. Above all, it is a positive move for the growth of our relations with India and for Seychelles to mark through its very own calendar of events the historical link with India. Many young Seychellois today trace their family lines back to someone who arrived from India. Apart from France, Africa, and the UK, we have always known that we had in the earlier part of our nation, building settlers from India and China who have played their part to make Seychelles the multi-ethnic country we have today. This is why we needed to be true and fair to ourselves as a nation to include a Seychelles-India Day Celebrations on our annual list of events,” Minister Alain St.Ange said.

The Indian High Commissioner noted that the support from the Indian business communities had been overwhelming in organizing the event. However, he said that more support is needed from the local business community, and he joined Minister St.Ange in appealing to the business sector at large to “come on board and make this event the success Seychelles deserves.”

“The Seychelles-India Day Celebrations is not only targeting the Indian community living in Seychelles, but also the people of Seychelles as a whole. We should come out in force to support this event and make Seychelles proud,” said Minister St.Ange.
