President James Michel as well as other Heads of State attending the General Assembly where hosted on Monday evening by the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama, to a reception at the New York Palace Hotel in New York.

The reception underscored a central tenet of Mr. Obama’s address to the General Assembly on Monday, which is primarily to use diplomacy as a conduit to strengthen international cooperation in the pursuit of peace.

After the event, President James Michel remarked that it was an excellent occasion to engage in a less formal manner with the heads of the international community allowing for a more targeted manner with which to achieve resolute action on pertinent issues, most notably the eradication of hunger, climate change, and global peace.

Seychelles is a founding member of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) .
