Minister Lai Mohammed and former Minister St.Ange were both at the COP 22 in Morocco. "We first met on the sideline of COP 22 in Morocco and yesterday's meeting was an opportunity for us to discuss tourism in Africa and the coming UNWTO elections where I am a candidate for the position of Secretary General" St.Ange said.

"Seychelles remains very much a country dependent on tourism and the good practices here in the field of tourism should be seen and used as examples" said the Minister from Nigeria. "Africa is getting 5% of the world tourism traffic, yet Africa has everything tourists are searching for. We need to work together to improve this" Minister Lai Mohammed of Nigeria said.

Alain St.Ange added, "We also need to work on our safety label, because tourists are in search of safe and secure holiday destinations".
