Minister Loustau-Lalanne greeted Dr. Jones on Friday, November 3, 2017, at the headquarters of the ministry at Botanical House, Mont Fleuri.


In the meeting, the signing in July this year of a Memorandum of Understanding or MOU between Northern State University (NSU) and the Seychelles Tourism Academy (STA) took place.

The MOU targets at helping and promoting exchanges between the two institutions alongside assisting each institution to place students in internships along with other training prospects before joining the hospitality sector.


At the meeting that took place between Minister Loustau-Lalanne and Dr. Jones, the first three American students to profit from the exchange were present. The Principal Secretary for Tourism, Anne Lafortune, and STA officials were also present in the meeting.


Tommy Remsen, Terrian Marchand, and Ashleigh Rouatee, the three students, who have just finished their Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management and Tourism at NSU, will be getting a six-month internship at the Seychelles’ Savoy Resort and Spa.
