Vanilla Islands union of the Indian Ocean grows bigger

Vanilla Islands union of the Indian Ocean grows bigger ( The Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Organization comprised of Comoros, La Reunion, Madagascar, Maldives, Mauritius, Mayotte, and the Seychelles is fast now being recognized as the new tourism destination with real diversity.

At the recent World Travel Market (WTM) tourism trade fair in London, Alain St.Ange, the sitting President of the Vanilla Islands, was interviewed in which he stated:

"The union of the Vanilla Islands in the Indian Ocean is set to grow stronger with the addition of Maldives. … The UNWTO formally recognized the Vanilla islands Tourism Organization as an entity this September, and it is being driven by [the] Seychelles Minister of Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange. Speaking at WTM, St.Ange said that [the] Vanilla Islands had the full support of Taleb Rifai, World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Secretary General, who is set to announce further details of the union today.

St.Ange said: “People recognize the Caribbean as one tourism destination, and that is how we wish to be thought of. But to create a new tourism region is no easy feat.”

A Chief Executive and Director of Marketing have now been appointed and a brand campaign “with imagery of vanilla” at its core is being worked on.

St.Ange said that another move would be to encourage low-impact, smaller-ship cruising on Vanilla Island routes and whale watching.

In a week the Vanilla Island Organization is meeting in the Comoros for the first time, and this will be followed by the La Reunion-hosted Vanilla Islands event based on the celebration of the abolition of slavery. This will be taking place on December 20.
