The Director of the Vanilla Islands, Pascal Viroleau met with Mr Ulrich Andriantiana, Minister of Tourism, Transport and Meteorology of Madagascar for an operations update.

For several months, the Tourism Development Corporation of the Indian Ocean Islands has focused on cruises.
Initial positive results have appeared very quickly and are particularly due to a partnership agreement with the company Costa, multiplying the number of passengers by 3 for the coming season!
This allows each of the islands to profit from direct economic benefits.

At this meeting, negotiations with new companies and an analysis of their expectations were also discussed so as to determine the best strategies to adopt for each of the islands in order to make the most of them. 

The next International Tourism Fair in Madagascar as well as the cooperation between the stakeholders of the islands (tourist offices, travel agencies, etc.) should also lead to concrete actions very soon. 

The concept of the Vanilla Islands is therefore now on the right track.
