The Seychelles Investment Board has launched this event in close coordination and participation of the active private sector in the Seychelles of which the majority of them will be delivering comprehensive presentations on their services and products.  This effort firmly consolidates the vision of the Seychelles Government for Private Sector to play greater role in the promising and ever growing Seychelles economy.

The Seychelles High Commissioner in South Africa, Mr Joseph Nourrice who was previously the Chief Executive Officer of SIB is very enthusiastic and believes that Seychelles should host such a high level event in South Africa this year, especially now that South Africa is encouraging its nationals to invest both on and offshore.

The Investment climate in the Seychelles has proven its stability over the years and potential for growth through its very good performance in 2010 with recorded increase in Foreign Direct Investment compared to previous years.  The tourism industry welcomed higher quality products and other emerging sectors bloomed with success thus creating an open for more value added and support services and products.

This edition of the Seychelles Investment forum is again aimed at promoting the favorable economic climate of the Seychelles and to present investors with opportunities available in its traditional and emerging sectors.  Targeted sectors for this forum are tourism, financial and offshore, property development and with the University of Seychelles promoting the potential for twinning or partnership programs with other Universities on the African continent.  Investors will also be presented and updated with recent developments of the Seychelles economy and its financial performances and furthermore be given insights of its investment framework.

The Seychelles delegation comprising of CEOs’ and key decision makers of the targeted sectors will be headed in this forum by the Minister responsible for Investment.  The official opening of the forum will be made in the presence of many of Seychelles friends and business partners.
