sey-jordanMinister St.Ange of the Seychelles reminded Mr Louis D'Amore of his standing invitation to use the unique annual carnival of carnivals that is staged in the Seychelles during the last weekend of the month of April to further the cause of the IIPT. "The Carnaval International de Victoria in the Seychelles is an event worth looking at to further the cause of the IIPT. As delegations from the best and most known carnivals of the world parade together followed by cultural troupes from the Community of Nations in a climate of tranquility and peace, what a better event to talk peace through tourism" Minister St.Ange of the Seychelles said.

Senator Biltaji of Jordan, who had brought a number of Olive Trees all the way from Jordan for the Zambian tree planting event held just prior to the Opening Ceremony of the UNWTO 20th General Assembly, said that Seychelles had been on his list of countries to visit.

Discussions are now underway to formalise a visit to Seychelles by Louis D'Amore, the President of IIPT and Senator Biltaji of Jordan.
