His Excellency President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, accompanied by the First Lady and a government delegation, has arrived in The Republic of Seychelles, formally commencing his State visit to the country.

He is undertaking this visit at the invitation of the President of Seychelles, His Excellency Danny Faure with whom he will engage in one on one discussions, and jointly preside over bilateral talks intended to deepen and progress our two countries’ international relationship.

The President, First Lady and accompanying delegation arrived at Seychelles International Airport, where they were received by H.E Minister Macsuzy Mondon.

After a short period of rest and refreshment, they were escorted to their accommodation in preparation for the formalities of the State Visit.

Throughout the visit it is expected that our two governments will sign a general cooperation agreement and six memoranda of understanding to take forward our concrete cooperation in manifold areas, encompassing the blue economy, diplomacy, sport and conservation, among others. Following the signing of agreements both Presidents will lead a Joint Press Statement.

Whilst in Seychelles, the President will also be attending a formal state luncheon scheduled to be hosted in his honour by the Seychellois President, and will be provided a tour of Seychelles’ most famous vantage point, Mission Lodge, from which the stunning vistas of the country can be truly appreciated.

It is expected that this visit will be a successful one and will further strengthen the friendly ties between both our countries.
