Mauritius snubbed Ste Ange

May 12, 2014
Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, has left the country and is en-route to Madagascar for the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Ministerial Meeting which will also see the elections for the 2014 President of the Regional Organization.
The Seychelles Minister is the outgoing President of the organization having served two terms. In Madagascar he will be chairing his last meeting prior to the elections for the new President.
On the Agenda for this Ministerial Meeting will be the report of the last Ministerial Meeting in May 2013 when the elections took place to renew the mandate of Minister St.Ange. This meeting that was called by Madagascar was attended by Comoros, La Reunion, Madagascar, Mayotte, and Seychelles. Only Mauritius was recorded as being absent at this meeting.
The Vanilla Islands Ministerial meeting scheduled to take place in Madagascar will also look at the principle to enlarge the Vanilla Islands membership and the recommendation for the airport that will be tabled as a potential regional hub at the UNWTO (UN World Tourism Organization) and ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) joint meeting with tourism and transport ministers on October 15 in the Seychelles.
The Ministerial Meeting will also be briefed on this historic UNWTO & ICAO meeting that will be taking place in the Indian Ocean region as well as the 2014 Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) Tourism and Travel Mart which will be held in Seychelles on September 19-21, 2014 and the 2015 UNWTO Commission For Africa (CAF) that will be also taking place in Seychelles on April 22-24, 2015 to coincide with the 2015 edition of the Carnaval International de Victoria (April 24-26, 2015).


  1. That Muarituis Snubbed St Ange speaks volume of the Mauritian governemnt discontenment.St Ange we all agreee ,has been parroting on Vinilla Islands ,but no visible actions could be seen on the ground.For St Ange VANILLA Islands sound more like a buzzword,that is good to repeat constantly for it seems it gives St Ange buzz.Where is the master plan or the guidelines to follow St Ange?

  3. St Ange talks about AIRPORT HUB.Has SFP told you to use SOleil Island for a new terminal dog?What better idea and solution could that be ,thus solve the congested and decades old Airport terminal that does not even represent our tourism industry and an ariport terminal in the 21st century,In fact Seychelles Airport terminal is the worst ,old Fashion,in the Region.SFP Proposition provides a rapid,cost effective solution.Donot be ashame to use it PP;though it is not your idea,it is a good idea ,use it dog.

  4. Its funny pp all time try to take sfp idea,but they don't no how to make it work.BAGS of LOSER.

  5. The worst terminal I have seen. No better than it was in 1979 when I first visited. The first class lounge for Perera and Arabs?Does not make sense.
