David Joubert, at one time the strong man of Praslin Island politics in the Seychelles and first Tourism Minister, has died following a long illness. Mr. David Joubert was appointed Tourism Minister in 1975, and he retained that portfolio after independence in 1976.

In the colonial era, David Joubert had turned the island of Praslin as the stronghold of the Democratic Party of Mr. James Mancham. He was the Secretary General of the Democratic Party.

President James Michel has presented his condolences to Mrs. Gemma Joubert and her family. On his part, Minister Alain St.Ange, the current Minister of Tourism and Culture of the Seychelles, has said that he salutes the work done by former Minister David Joubert.

“Seychelles launched its tourism in earnest in 1972 with the official opening of our island’s International Airport. James Mancham, as Chief Minister and then Prime Minister, helped to initially put Seychelles on the map and start the island’s tourism industry. Then it was David Joubert who took over the portfolio as the first Tourism Minister. Today, this same industry has become the pillar of our island’s economy. Tourism is today enjoying renewed successes, and as Minister it is my duty to salute the work done by Minister David Joubert,” said Minister Alain St.Ange.

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