Minister for Labour and Human Resource Development meets with former president

The Minister for Labour and Human Resource Development, Ms Idith Alexander was warmly welcomed by the former President, Mr James R. Mancham at his residence Glacis-sur-mer on Monday 11th March 2013, to discuss pertinent issues in regards to employment.

In this vein, a comprehensive Manpower Policy; non-Seychellois workers and productive employment were the main issues discussed in relevance to the growing challenges on the labour market.

Former President Mancham pointed out that it is imperative for the Ministry of Labour and Human Resource Development to work in close collaboration with the Ministry of Education, with the view to achieve their common objectives. Meaningful consultations between the two Ministries will ensure that the education system and tertiary training respond to future needs of the industry, thereby ensuring that Seychellois are employable and benefit from the job opportunities available in the country.


In this regard, it was mutually agreed that the Ministry should continue to ensure proper management of non-Seychellois workers and provide conducive working conditions to retain graduates.

Former President Mancham also welcomed the opening of the Mont Royale Centre as he advised that drug abuse is indeed affecting our workforce and livelihood of many individuals. Further to this, it was suggested that we need to continuously educate the population, especially workers in the tourism industry on the right attitude to ensure that customer service in local tourism establishments is of quality and reflects the brand that is being promoted for the country.

It was also proposed by Mr Mancham for topical issues in relevance to employment to be discussed at round table discussions, so that the general public has the chance to share their views, whilst the Ministry is given the opportunity to clarify certain issues, so that the population is well informed on the policy direction of the Ministry.

Minister Alexander expressed her appreciation towards the relevant points raised by Former President Mancham. The Minister reassured Mr Mancham that strategies to address these challenges are already incorporated in her Ministry’s action plan for this year. Both agreed to further pursue collaborations in the future and to support the Ministry’s objectives for the betterment of the country.
