The countdown has now begun for the annual Seychelles Festival Kreol. With only 20 days to go before the launch on October 26, businesses and individuals are still rallying behind the event and are coming forward to give their support to the annual Seychellois event.
This week, Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, accepted a total of SR90,000 from three partners, namely the Seychelles Trading Company (STC), Vimal Shopping, and Barrister France Bonte.
In his address to the sponsors, Minister St.Ange said it is comforting to see friends of the Festival come forward to support the event.
Addressing STC’s Assistant Internal Auditor, Mr. Raymond Simeon, and Mrs. May-Rose Samson, the company’s Product Manager Duty Free, Minister St.Ange thanked STC for being a faithful partner and stressed on the fact that, as STC is a trading company, it is giving back to the Seychellois nation to help bring Seychelles to the forefront.
As to Mr. Vimal Virasamy, proprietor of Vimal Shopping, he was congratulated on the fact that he personally contacted the Festival Kreol Secretariat seeking information on how he could support the event, an initiation that Minister St.Ange said is to be a model of personal motivation.
And to Barrister Bonte, represented in his absence by Ms. Giovanna Rousseau, the Sponsorship Coordinator for the Festival, the Minister pointed out that his donation comes as a social attachment from an individual eager to promote our culture and for our nation.
To conclude his address, the Minister for Tourism and Culture said that the SR90,000 will no doubt contribute towards making the 27th edition of Festival Kreol a big success.
Also present at the ceremony was the Special Advisor for Culture Ms. Raymonde onezime and other representatives of the Festival Kreol Secretariat.
