World News Wires on Wednesday announced the selection of my great personal friend, the former Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine of Seychelles, Alain St.Ange – current chairman of the African Tourism Board as the inspirational figure of 2019 named the Tourism Change Maker industry, not only in Seychelles but also on the African countries and in the Community of Nations as a whole. I was not surprised that my friend received the award and this successful choice was made by the organizers of the 2019 African IIPT held in the Commercial capital of South Africa Johannesburg.
It can be said that it is an accurate and successful choice, which is the wisdom of the Arab interpretation of “the choice is true hundred percent” … A quick look at the personality of this practical hard working man who managed in a few years to achieve a massive visibility drive for the Republic of Seychelles on the global tourism industry .
Seychelles became Independent from the United Kingdom in 1976 and the world saw the island’s founding President James Mancham launch the Seychelles tourism industry that propelled economic development for the islands.
“Former Minister Alain St.Ange has succeeded for the small Seychelles to become an inspiring model for all developing countries seeking to promote tourism as an industry of hope.
The tourism industry in countries Africa is the key to continued progress. This is for countries with a political will and for those ready for hard work. Tourism simply provides a successful and rapid solution to economic development with rapid and abundant returns, creating great job opportunities for the country’s youth, “says the World Tourism Organization.”
This is what the former Minister St.Ange of Seychelles managed for his islands. But more than that, he was able to put Seychelles among the world’s succesful tourism countries that became a global tourism product competing strongly with major international tourist destinations.
When St.Ange came out of the Tourism Ministry under the conditions of his “candidacy of the Secretary General of the World Tourism Organization,” Alain St.Ange’s view became broader and broader, not only for the Seychelles, but for the rest of the African continent. He became an international adviser to several African countries today.
Dynamo for innovative ideas and inspirational tourism .. He is able to work round the clock .. almost always travelling to African countries to help in the development of tourism.. Choosing Alain St.Ange for Africa tourism remains very helpful in promoting tourism and marketing for the various tourist destinations on the African continent.
Last but not least Alain St.Ange is not a 2019 personality, but he will remain the leader of the tourism industry in Africa during the coming years.
