Increased Cooperation Between Seychelles And Mauritius Will Boost Tourism

The Mauritian Prime Minister Mr. Navin Ramgoolam has had an informal meeting with Seychelles Tourism Minister Mr. Alain St. Ange while in the Seychelles on an official visit. Mr. Ramgoolam was the guest of honour at the Seychelles National Day Celebrations. The meeting with Mr. St. Ange followed on from comments made by the Prime Minister about how the two nations were planning on increased cooperation on a number of levels which would include tourism. With each country naming their own ambassador (who will follow up on the cooperation), time will not be lost in the shared quest for sustainable development. Mr. St. Ange took advantage of his informal meeting with the Prime Minister to assess how the idea of the Vanilla Islands had been received. It was also the perfect opportunity to get an idea of how committed the Mauritius Prime Minister and his government are to working alongside each other in terms of tourism.

The Annual Carnaval International de Victoria which is currently co-hosted by La Reunion and the Seychelles was also discussed along with the proposal for Mauritius to also co-host. After the meeting, Mr. St. Ange was positive about increased cooperation between the two island countries with the two tourism industries set to work much closer together. There are strong views that by working together, both countries will benefit.

Taking the view that they are not in competition with each other, the two countries could work towards promoting multi centre holidays to tourists. There are a number of different markets which could be targeted for both countries such as the family market and honeymooners. Highlighting Seychelles and Mauritius wedding packages with all inclusive deals for families will only bring more and more tourists to both islands.

Mauritius and Seychelles are two of the most idyllic islands in the Indian Ocean so if the tourism industries can work together to target more tourists then there will be marked improvements for both countries in terms of revenue and awareness. They already have so much going for them with stunning beaches, fabulous weather and some of the top resorts in the world.

The honeymoon market is one that must hold particular interest for both Mauritius and Seychelles. With them working closely together, they could actively promote twin centre holidays with the honeymooners taking a week in each destination.

A honeymoon in one of these magnificent Indian Ocean islands would be a dream come true for most people but being able to split it with a week in each would be an out of this world experience. Staying in one of the luxurious resorts that can be found on each island would mean that the happy couple would have everything they could ever wish for in terms of pampering and relaxation.

They could spend lazy days by the pool or soaking up the sun on the pristine white beaches or could get involved in a number of thrilling adventures such as water skiing, snorkelling, deep sea diving, horse riding or cycling for example.
