During the three-day port call, the delegation met President James Michel, government officials, as well as members from the defence forces.

While in the country, the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) hosted the delegates to lunch at the Wharf Hotel & Marina where they had the possibility to savour delicious Indian cuisine and Creole dishes.

The luncheon gathering was an opportune moment for STB’s senior marketing executive Amia Jovanovic-Désir to sell the hot points of Seychelles to the eager group in a presentation entitled “Destination Seychelles”. 

“In addition to the world famous beaches of Seychelles, there are a host of special attractions in Seychelles for visitors to discover,” she said.

“The presentation was at an ideal moment for our guests knowing some of the delegates were in Seychelles for the first time,” Mrs Jovanovic-Désir said.

“This enlightened them on the many aspects of Seychelles and I am sure that after watching the presentation this will definitely entice them to come back again with friends and families,” she added.

To show their appreciation towards STB’s warmth gesture, Rear Admiral Lyer presented Mrs Jovanovic-Désir with a memento which she accepted on behalf of the organisation.

Rear Admiral Lyer noted that this is the second time in three years the National Defence College team from India has visited Seychelles, pinpointing the importance that India attaches to Seychelles.

After meeting President Michel and government officials, Rear Admiral Lyer said the extra time off allowed the Indian delegates, who were accompanied by their spouses, to shop for souvenirs, enjoy the sun and relax.

 “We are overwhelmed by the STB’s gesture to us. I want to express my sincere appreciation and thank you once again for all your support,” he said.

Others also agreed that much like the weather, the warmth of the people truly makes Seychelles an ideal getaway.
