Seychelles President Danny Faure Makes Strong Pitch in National Assembly for Joint Facility with India

In his State Of The Nation Address on 6 March 2018 President Danny Faure made a strong pitch for joint construction of the coast guard facility with India on Assumption Island thus giving a  strong push to the project of which there have been reservations recently. The President outlined the importance of the project given the large expanse of seas of Seychelles. He said, “Our Economic Exclusive Zone is 1.37 million square kilometres. This is more than 8500 times the size of Mahe, or more than twice the size of Madagascar. For many years, we have been building our capacity to survey and protect our territory. In the times that we faced the threat of piracy, several countries had to come together to help Seychelles. Today, we remain vulnerable. Drug trafficking on our waters is a major problem. Illegal exploitation of our resources is a major problem. Our maritime area is vast, and we need to regain control of our territory”.
