PM Gonsalves Will Be Guest Of Honour At Seychelles National Day

(Seychelles News Agency) – The Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves, will arrive in Seychelles on his first state visit on June 28, the Department of Foreign Affairs said on Monday.

The Prime Minister will be in the island nation in the western Indian Ocean on a two-day visit.

The highlight of his visit will come when he serves as the guest of honour at Seychelles’ national day celebration ceremony on June 29.

Seychelles became independent from the United Kingdom on June 29, 1976, and since 2015 the day is celebrated as the National Day.

Gonsalves will meet with President Danny Faure and other high-level government officials during his visit.

Bilateral discussions are expected to focus on areas of cooperation in the blue economy, tourism, environment, fisheries among others.

Seychelles and St. Vincent and the Grenadines established diplomatic relations in May 2017.

UPDATE ON GONSALVES TRAVEL

The Prime Minister was in Europe — most recently Italy — meeting with investors, including the Canouan investors.

He will also be in the United Kingdom, where he will (among other things) be meeting with members of the Vincy Diaspora and at least one U.K. Secretary of State.

The PM goes to Seychelles on Sat 29th June, and returns to SVG on July 2nd.
