This news follows a meeting late last week in Seychelles between Pascal Viroleau, the Director of the Vanilla Islands Association and the Minister Sylvestre Radegonde, the Seychelles Minister of Foreign Affairs and Tourism and his PS Sherin Francis. This meeting, which took place on the day of the celebration of the Francophonie in the archipelago, made it possible to share the vision for the future and the implementation of the actions for the Indian Ocean Island’s Vanilla islands.
After months of inactivity, the reopening of the borders gradually allows a resumption of tourist activity.
Engineering, inter-island combinations and cruising will serve as a basis for the renewed development of relations between the islands. The grouping of professionals and cooperation between the institutions of the six islands were also mentioned. It was agreed that to meet new needs, a connection of the small accommodation structures of the different islands, must allow a better sharing, for a better efficiency.
Based on these elements, a visit by a Seychellois delegation could be made in 2022 to Reunion In order to concretize the new regional orientations.
