Pascal Viroleau was transiting Seychelles and he made time to pay a courtesy call on Minister St.Ange at his Offices at the National Cultural Centre in Victoria.

The La Reunion delegation coming to Seychelles was discussed as was the number of foreign press and delegations attending the 2013 edition of the Carnaval International de Victoria. Mr Viroleau will be addressing the annual Press Conference at the Constance Ephelia Resort and will be using this opportunity to showcase La Reunion in front of this large group of International Press by showing a short promotional DVD of La Reunion.

Minister Alain St.Ange told the press after his meeting with Mr Pascal Viroleau of La Reunion that every country and every Government had a responsibility to showcase their people and their culture. The Seychelles Minister congratulated La Reunion for being proud of their people and jumping on opportunities to show to the world at large their own distinct culture and in so doing their culture.

“The annual Carnaval International de Victoria is an opportunity for tourism destinations to increase their own respective visibility. It is similar to a tourism trade fair but the added advantage here is that the large bank of press come to you and will write about destinations who are present and who are out to showcase their destination through their culture and through the people that stand behind their culture” Minister St.Ange said.

The large La Reunion delegation are expected to fly to Seychelles on the 6th February in time for the Official Opening of the carnival on the 8th February in Victoria, the Capital of the Seychelles.
