UNWTO Commission for Africa congratulates Seychelles Minister on his re-appointment

The Chairman of CAF (Commission for Africa) of the UNWTO, Mr. Walter Mzembi, has posted a public message on the re-appointment of the Seychelles Minister Alain St.Ange.

Minister Alain St.Ange was the island's Minister for Tourism and Culture, but last weekend was re-appointed the Seychelles Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports & Marine in a cabinet re-shuffle following a change in presidency from James Michel to Danny Faure.

In his message, Mr. Mzembi said: "Congratulations to Minister St Ange, a tireless tourism practitioner and leader in the Vanilla islands and the globe. You deserve the enhanced and value added reappointment which has successfully demonstrated the nexus between tourism and aviation, and ports of entry. Life under water, SDG 14 and the blue economy [policies] have clearly been placed under your leadership. I look forward to greater regional, continental and global collaboration with you, dear brother and colleague".

The Seychelles Minister has responded that he was delighted to see the support of colleague ministers. "We all meet at tourism trade fairs and at international tourism conferences. We work together for the common good of tourism and it is always appreciated when colleagues come out to echo words of support. I thank Minister Walter Mzembi for his public show of support," minister Alain St.Ange said.
