Minister for Investment, Natural Resources and Transport
As the new Minister for "Investment, Natural Resources and Industries" for our archipelago, one of my very first challenge, is to enhance further the enabling environment for doing business in Seychelles. It is true that our focus and preference are for long-term and serious investors who will join us and embrace our strong environmental conservation record. Indeed the latter is progressively becoming a valued brand asset for any company that 'drop anchor' to do business in Seychelles. My key performance indicator from now to July 2011 is for Seychelles to be equipped to welcome you, dear investors, with much greater efficiency that will compare to the best destinations that today stand high on the global "ease of doing business' indicator matrix. We will do so within the framework of sustainability and without compromising our pristine environment which is considered as the 'goose that lay our golden eggs' in the form of the increasing trend in the number of tourists that grace our shores! Bienvenu aux Seychelles!» Show all quotes
