Additional negotiations were also advanced during the conference with such countries like Cyprus, Senegal, Guyana, Belarus and and Paraguay and now await signature.
Seychelles, as an island nation, depends on air transport to bring in tourist visitors but also urgent air cargo and enjoys daily flights from many countries to the main island of Mahe.
