Alain St.Ange, the former Seychelles Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine Minister met with press in Nairobi before heading to Mombasa for Routes Africa 2019.
St.Ange, who is now a much respected and sought after speaker for tourism and aviation forums and conferences stopped in Nairobi primarily to meet tourism leaders he deals with through his tourism consultancy business (Saint Ange Tourism Consultancy) from which he issues his weekly tourism report.
After his meetings on Friday some Kenyan press personalities caught up with him at Hilton Nairobi to better understand his tenacity and dedication to tourism.
"I am honoured to again be invited to Routes Africa to sit on a panel of experts in the field of aviation. This subject remains the catalyst for tourism destinations because without a good aviation network tourism as an industry will struggle. This is why every helping hand is important and Africa needs to be relooking at its air routes to ensure better coordinated links" said St.Ange.
The former Minister was also quizzed on tourism in the Indian Ocean as well as politics in Seychelles where he leads the One Seychelles political party.
"Political developments in Seychelles is intensifying day by day as Presidential elections are due in the latter part of 2020. Will it be just a Presidential poll or will the incumbent President call a General Election is anyone's guess but I can say the One Seychelles as a political party is ready to contest the elections as and when they are called" said St.Ange.
Alain St.Ange will be in Mombasa for the three coming days as one if the invited Routes Africa delegate.
