End of the road for the St. Ange Tourism Report


(Posted 05th November 2020)

The Seychelles former Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine, Mr. Alain St.Ange, who also made a bid for the highest office for Tourism Ministers in the position of Secretary General of the UNWTO and who only in October was a candidate for the Seychelles Presidential elections has announced he was stopping the publication of his weekly informative and interesting "Saint Ange Tourism Report". The weekly report covered the Seychelles and all the other Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands and was regularly rebroadcast by ATCNews.

Alain St.Ange can look back at an amazing tourism career and he earned the respect of his peers right around the world as a knowledgeable, competent and articulate Tourism Minister.
His knowledge of the subject and the flair with which he managed the industry propelled him to be one of the most popular and respected individuals in his field. He was always sought after as a speaker on the tourism and aviation circuit because of his ability to deliver long ‘off the cuff’ speeches that remained to the point, interesting and topical for the industry’s forward thinking..

St.Ange launched his Tourism Report in 2017 after returning to Seychelles following the UNWTO election debacle that saw his candidature withdrawn by the Government of President Danny Faure of the Seychelles on the eve of the election to the disbelief of Tourism Ministers from the Community of Nations who had gathered in Madrid for the UNWTO elections.

The Saint Ange Tourism Report had become the voice of the Indian Ocean Islands and also roped in aviation, news of the African Continent and tourism trends and development.

His report will be greatly missed by not just ATCNews readers who read it in their thousands and at times tens of thousands but also readers from around the world who made his news broadcasts a reference point for information about the Indian Ocean islands.
