The Minister of Tourism and Culture of Seychelles, Alain St Ange, has recently intervened at the United Nations during a meeting on sustainable tourism in the context of small island states to present the successful experience of the archipelago in the matter.
 
"Today we have more than 50% of the total area of our territory which are protected areas. We have nominates the Ambassador Ronny Jumeau in charge of the issue of climate change. We asked our tourism industry to become even more involved in sustainable tourism... We have also placed the insular culture at the heart of our tourist development. Respect for the environment is taught in our schools so that our young generations from a young age are sensitised to the environmental theme... We deploy partnerships in the Indian Ocean region through the association of the vanilla Islands and Africa thanks to the new dynamics of the tourism of the African Union... We also launched our own label for sustainable tourism, because we want our hotels are committed and continue their contribution in this area," said Minister of tourism and the Culture of Seychelles, Alain Saint-Ange.
 
The meeting was well organised at the initiative of the UN bodies and the Permanent Representative of the archipelago of the Seychelles to the United Nations, Marie-Louise Potter.
 
As a reminder, while 2014 has been declared international year of small island developing States by the United Nations, the last preparatory meeting to the third international conference on small island developing States, which will take place in the islands of Samoa in September, began on Monday, June 23, 2014 and closes today after four days of work at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York.
