UNWTO logoAlain St.Ange, the potential candidate from Seychelles for the impending position of the UNWTO Secretary-General has received a lot of backing in his bid to win the title in the May elections.


Sri Lanka Tourism professional Chandra Mohotti, the Chairman of the Eastern Province Tourism Bureau and Senior Vice President of the Galle Face Hotel Group Management Company has expressed his support of Alain St.Ange. To quote Mohotti, “We know that he would be a good successor for the great work done by Taleb Rifai. Alain St.Ange is a unifier and has always tried to bring countries together to work as one for tourism, and has been a good friend.


We have watched closely his Vanilla islands initiative and the way he worked tirelessly to create a new tourism region for the indian Ocean. We need so much this approach if unity in the UNWTO to continue the work you have started.


We also appreciate his continued statement of friends of all and enemies of none and the call for respect of people immaterial of colour, of religious beliefs, of political affiliation and of gender preferences. The United Nations will no doubt greatly benefit from the experience and personality of Alain St.Ange and we are delighted to endorse his candidacy for Secretary General of the UNWTO.”

Alain St.Ange has also welcomed the support of Sri Lanka. To quote him, “This is a sign of global tourism network at work. Being able to go beyond your own borders is needed if one aspires to lead the UNWTO. We in Seychelles are humbled by the endorsement.”
