Seychelles Draft Tourism Human Resources Development Strategy

Seychelles Draft Tourism

The Seychelles Draft Tourism Human Resources Development Strategy was presented to the tourism sector and other stakeholders in a series of workshops in Mahe, Praslin and La Digue from 22 to 24 March 2024.

The strategy was developed with the technical assistance of United Nations Tourism and the workshops were facilitated by the UN Tourism consultant, Lisa Gordon-Davis.

The draft strategy was favourably received and accurately portrays the human resources situation in Seychelles. The recommendation and actions to address HR issues and systemic logjams were welcomed by the workshop participants. The draft strategy was thus validated by an overwhelming majority of participants of the workshops. Some revision and adjustments will be made based on inputs and feedback given during the workshop group working sessions. Once finalised, its will be presented to Parliament by the Tourism Department for ratification and adoption.

The concept of Team Tourism Seychelles was used to rally all stakeholders – private sector employers, public sector authorities, training providers, industry associations and other relevant bodies toward the successful implementation of the strategy once it is approved by parliament.
