20140319-2152_m-243x300Seychelles 5-star hotels have absorbed a group of Chinese students for their attachment period following a request from the Seychelles Tourism Academy.


This attachment period in the island`s tourism establishment is being seen as having great potential for the Seychelles accommodation establishments who have all been enjoying increased visitor arrivals from China.

A strong group of 23 Chinese students from Hebei Tourism Vocational College in Chengde, north of China, are in Seychelles for a 6-month work attachment in five-star hotels through the Seychelles Tourism Academy.


Their presence in Constance Ephelia Resort, Four Seasons, BeachComber Sainte Anne, and Raffles Praslin Resort has triggered so much interest among trade partners that the Seychelles Tourism Academy announced the availability of an additional 32 internship placements for students of Hebei Tourism Vocational College.


Flavien Joubert, the Principal of the Seychelles Tourism Academy, said the partnership signed between Seychelles Tourism Academy and Hebei will be long lasting.

“Trade partners want to see more Chinese students in their hotels. I am pleased to announce that Constance Resorts in Maldives and Mauritius are more than willing to share the Memorandum of Understanding we`ve signed with the tourism institution of China,” Joubert said.


The Seychelles Tourism Academy added that the private-sector trade partners are to be commended because they`ve recognized the positive implications of the MOU.

“Without trade partners, the students` attachment would not have been the success it is. It is important to appreciate their implication in this project,” said Mr. Joubert, the Principal of the Seychelles Tourism Academy


.The 23 students on work attachment in Seychelles were welcomed by Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, and by the Chinese Ambassador in Seychelles, in a press conference at the Ministry of Tourism and Culture. Minister St.Ange said it`s rewarding to see that the Memorandum of Understanding is bearing fruits.


“It`s doubling rewarding because not only you will be attached at the Academy, you will also go to our private-sector partners. You will go into our resorts, and there you will be able to also guide our industry into the expectations of the Chinese tourists we are now welcoming in ever-growing numbers,” said Minister St.Ange.
