Fortune Magazine features Seychelles


15-October-2011

With a catching heading 'Seychelles: Changing Fortunes' the article spells out the main attributes of the mid-ocean islands through interviews with President James Michel, Vice-President Danny Faure, Investment, Natural Resources and Industry Minister Peter Sinon and Central Bank Governor Pierre Laporte, among many other personalities.

President Michel is quoted as saying that it was important to encourage more Seychellois to enter the country's tourism industry. This is cited as part of the new drive by Seychelles as it refocuses on its economy.

The article also talks about tourism proper, offshore, fisheries and finance among many other topics that showcase the new Seychelles.

The seven-page article on Seychelles in the Fortune Magazine is just one of the numerous international press coverage of our islands.

The islands have become very visible in the last couple of years through the work undertaken by press offices set up at the President's State House office, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and at the Seychelles Tourism Board which has now also open a European PR & News Bureau in the city of London.
