UNWTO logoLai Mohammed, Nigeria’s Minister for Tourism, Information and Culture is in the Seychelles for a working fact finding visit and yesterday (Jan 2nd) he had a meeting with Alain St. Ange, the island’s former Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine.

Both the ministers were at the COP 22 in Morocco. To quote St. Ange, “We first met on the sideline of COP 22 in Morocco and yesterday’s meeting was an opportunity for us to discuss tourism in Africa and the coming UNWTO elections where I am a candidate for the position of Secretary General.” To quote Lai Mohammed, “Seychelles remains very much a country dependant on tourism and the good practices here in the field of tourism should be seen and used as examples. Africa is getting but 5% of the world tourism traffic, yet Africa has everything tourists are searching for. We need to work together to change this.” St. Ange said that unity in Africa for ensuring that it’s seen as one continent is essential. Africa also needs to work on its safety factors since tourists are always looking for safe and secure holiday destinations. St. Ange is now one of the probable candidates for the UNWTO’s Secretary General position.
