The Seychelles Tourism Board’s chief executive Elsia Grandcourt, accompanied by Stephanie Lablache, Amy Michel and Glynn Burridge, were all in China for the Routes Asia in Chengdu, after which they moved onto Beijing to take part in the COTTM alongside the Seychelles tourism private sector delegation.

Alain St Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, also joined the Seychelles delegation at the China Tourism Trade Fair, after attending a series of official meetings with the Chinese authorities.

“It was a great experience being at the COTTM and to see the interest for Seychelles,” Mr St Ange said at the fair.

The Seychelles private sector businesses and tourism establishments which were in China for the COTTM Tourism Trade Fair were Constance Hotels, Creole Travel Services, Mason's Travel, 7 Degrees South, Sainte Anne Resort & Spa, Dhevatara Beach Hotel, Desroches Island, Berjaya Hotels & Resorts.

They said they wanted to work to develop and consolidate this market for Seychelles.
Seychelles is seeing a remarkable increase in visitor arrivals from China and this figure is now set to increase further because of the recent marketing drive by the island’s tourism industry.
