In the margin of the international tourism fair of Tananarive which took place last week, the Seychelles and Madagascar have decided to consolidate their joint action within the regional tourist organisation of  Vanilla Islands *.
 
Eric Koller president of the Board of Directors of the National Agency of tourism of Madagascar (ONTM) and the Minister of tourism and Culture of Seychelles and former president of the Vanilla Islands, Alain Saint-Ange, thus said they want now to increase their cooperation.
 
The Malagasy national company, Air Madagascar, is preparing to open flight to the Seychelles archipelago a few months after the election of the President Hery Rajaonarimampianina who brought political stability in the wake of the recognition of the international community, and this, after five years of the Transition Plan.
 
The international Carnival in Victoria was also co-organised for the 2014 edition by Madagascar alongside Reunion and Mayotte who had joined the Seychelles and South Africa and his province of KwaZulu-Natal.
As a reminder, the vanilla Islands advocate since their inception in August 2010 the repositioning of the Indian Ocean as a tourist destination and the cohesion of these countries around this common objective.
 
Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar, Seychelles, Comoros, Mayotte and the Maldives want to have greater visibility by bringing together diverse strengths within a same regional structure of tourist-oriented.
 
 
The tourist sector, creator of direct and indirect jobs, real perennial lever of growth, is the basis of development initiated by the vanilla Islands.
