Seychelles Minister addresses the Ministerial Roundtable meeting of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)

Seychelles Minister addresses the Ministerial Roundtable meeting of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) (Forimmediaterelease.net) Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, has this last weekend addressed the Ministerial Roundtable meeting of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). It was Dr. Taleb Rifai, the Secretary General of the UNWTO, who chaired this Ministerial Roundtable meeting of Tourism Ministers from the Community of Nations who were all in Zambia and Zimbabwe for the 20th General Assembly of the UNWTO. The meeting was centered on simplifying border control in a bid to entice and also to increase tourism.

The Seychelles Minister spoke about unity in Africa saying that Africa needed to work together for the spirit of open borders to become a reality. He also referred to the one Europe through the European Union saying that for this block a one visa policy was working. “But for Seychelles I need to state openly that as far as we are concerned, we see the Community of Nations as friends and as such we apply a NO VISA policy in Seychelles," said Minister Alain St.Ange.

The Seychelles Minister also spoke about the need for Africa to pat itself on the back now that the African Union (AU) had agreed to look at the idea of having a tourism chapter as part of its responsibilities. “Tourism remains the one industry that can create employment for the people of Africa, and it can put money in the pockets of our respective peoples if we work together to consolidate it for the long run," Minister Alain St.Ange said.

He then spoke about the move by Seychelles to sign a number of MOUs, and these included the ones signed with Zambia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, La Reunion Island, and with Mauritius.

Speaking to the international and Zambian press after the meeting, the Seychelles Minister said that his delegation had been working long hours to meet all the deadlines for meetings already planned with the different countries and tourism organizations. “We can come here alone and leave with possible successes of a man, or you can come as a team and work to maximize possibilities of your working visit," said Minister Alain St.Ange.

The Seychelles delegation at the 20th General Assembly of the UNWTO has said that they are satisfied with their successes which will bear fruit for the country and which will make every patriotic Seychellois proud.
