Message from the Principal Secretary of Trade Department
Dear Esteemed Stakeholders,
Following Seychelles’ accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in April 2015, it became essential to have in place a functioning Trade Portal.
The purpose of the portal is to increase knowledge of both local and foreign business communities, prospective investors, and other interested parties on Seychelles’ trade and trade-related information, as a member of WTO.
The government being facilitator in the business environment, will through the Trade Portal be adding another important element to the existing framework, for promoting investment and facilitating trade. It will serve as the window for deepening knowledge with up-to-date information, policies, and procedures on trade and trade-related information for improving decision-making by investors.
While the Trade Portal offers a range of benefits, the latter would only materialise with frequent and effective usage of the platform. In that regard, I would therefore encourage the local business community, potential investors, and also the general public in Seychelles to make use of this platform and derive from it the maximum benefit. Last, but not least, I thank the European Union for Technical Assistance, the EPA Project Team and all other contributors involves in making this project a reality.
