(Seychelles News Agency) - Guinea will use Seychelles' experience in tourism to develop its own sector, said the newly accredited Guinean ambassador.
Mamadi Camara presented his credentials to Seychelles President James Michel on Tuesday at State House.
Camara told reporters, “Seychelles has a formidable experience in the tourism industry. Guinea could be inspired by this example.”
The new ambassador said that apart from new avenues for bilateral cooperation, discussions with the island nation’s head of state focused on how to strengthen cooperation between the two countries, mainly in the field of education and information.

Guinea, a western African country, and Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean, established relations in 1978.
“This cooperation reached its pinnacle in the 1980s when Guinea sent its nationals to Seychelles to help in the fields of education and information,” said Camara.
The new ambassador said that Seychelles has made great strides in its development and he noted that the country has the highest income per capita on the African continent. He said Guinea could learn from the Seychelles' experience in macroeconomics.
Camara is the fourth Guinean ambassador to be accredited to Seychelles. He will be based in Pretoria, South Africa.
