The Seychelles Investment Board alongside numerous other government departments and parastatal agencies attended the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference that was held at the Kenya International Conference Centre in Nairobi, Kenya from the 26th to 28th November, 2018.  The objectives of the conference was to engage in action-oriented discussions on pertaining issues such as the priorities and challenges of establishing a sustainable blue economy and innovative role of various stakeholders, including national and local governments, private sector, civil society, regional and sub-regional groups as well as domestic and international financial institutions in investing and formulating sustainable ways of exploiting the Blue Economy.

 

For this purpose, the Societe Seychelloise d’investissement organised a side event titled “Seychelles Day” to showcase the different areas in which Seychelles is actively participating in the promotion and inclusion of the blue economy globally. Topics discussed at the side event included the blue economy strategy put forth by the blue economy department, the innovative blue bonds financing and the upcoming launch of the Seychelles aquaculture sector amongst others.

 

In parallel to the discussions, the conference also featured an exhibition component. This attracted the participation of a great number of international organizations, private sector companies and governments. On the part of Seychelles, this provided an opportune time for one on one discussions and networking building.
