Welcome to Edition #2 of 2017. The feedback from last week’s edition was overwhelmingly positive and heartening. The words of encouragement were indeed appreciated. I thank all the online Newswires who reposted the Tourism Report. You are indeed friends who are ready to work together for the good of the tourism industry.

I would also like to thank Kate Carolus of the Today Newspaper of Seychelles for the short article announcing the launch of Saint Ange Tourism Consultancy. I am also very grateful to all the Tour Operators and Travel Agents who requested that their email addresses be added to our mailing list.
