The event was graced by Seychelles Tourism and Culture Minister Alain St. Ange, French Ambassador Lionel Majeste-Larrouy, British High Commissioner High Caron Röhsler and PS for Tourism Anne Lafortune.
Eddie D’Offay, Vice Chairperson of SHTA gave the welcome address.

 
Sybille Cardon, the Chairperson of the Seychelles Hospitality and Tourism Association of Seychelles (SHTA) joined her Board Members during the event.

 
Addressing the guests present at the event, Cardon expressed her desire to ‘see an Association that truly became representative of the Industry and mandated to talk to Government on behalf of the Industry.’

 
She thanked the Tourism Minister for always being present for the members of the tourism trade and for meeting them as and when necessary.

 
Cardon also spoke about the cross-sectorial meeting held between the Government and the private Sector.

 
She used her address to appeal for unity in the industry as she complimented the two Officials of the Association – Louise Testa and Natalie Du Buisson.

 
Minister Alain St. Ange thanked the Chairperson of the Association for her remarks made on National Television when she re-confirmed that the tourism industry of Seychelles had had a good positive 2015. The Minister also re-assured the tourism trade of Seychelles that the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and its Tourism Board would continue to work alongside the private sector as their facilitators.

 
“We will continue to work with you individually or in groups. We shall continue to work with an open-door policy with your association and we shall continue our door-to-door visits of hotels, large or small. We are all on the same side because we do not have a tourism industry for the Government and another one for the private sector. We have but one tourism industry for Seychelles,” said Minister St. Ange.
