Seychelles President Wavel Ramkalawan is scheduled to undertake his first official foreign trip with a visit to Mauritius, the presidency confirmed on Wednesday.
The three-day visit has been organized at the invitation of Mauritius Prime Minister H.E Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, and will begin on 29 November.
“This marks the first State Visit to be undertaken by President Ramkalawan, since taking office and presents an opportunity to further strengthen the long standing excellent bilateral ties that exist between the two island nations,” said the presidency.
President Ramkalawan will be accompanied by a high-level delegation, including the First Lady Linda Ramkalawan, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Tourism Sylvestre Radegonde, the Commander of Seychelles Coastguard Colonel Simon Dine, the Director for World Affairs and Countries Patsy Moustache and the Senior Officer of the Seychelles’ Anti Narcotics Bureau Yves Leon.
Ramkalawan was declared winner of the country’s October elections, beating incumbent Danny Faure to inflict a first loss for the ruling party since 1977.
