This took place during a meeting earlier this week between the ambassador of the Philippines to Seychelles, Bayani V. Mangibin, and the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Transport, Joël Morgan.
Also present at the meeting which took place at the Maison Quéau de Quinssy were the secretary of state in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Barry Faure, and the principal secretary for foreign affairs, Ambassador Maurice Loustau-Lalanne.
The governing reason for Ambassador Mangibin's visit was to discuss the upcoming 2nd Joint Committee Meeting (JCM) to take place in Manila in November 2015 as well as to extend on behalf of his government, congratulations to Minister Morgan on his recent appointment as foreign minister.
The 1st JCM was held in Victoria in October 2013.
Currently Seychelles and the Philippines are negotiating a number of memoranda of understanding, hoped to be discussed further during or concluded at the 2nd JCM.
Acknowledging the many commonalities that both countries share, both sides agreed to continue working together towards strengthening cooperation across areas such as labour, trade, health, tourism and culture, air services, agriculture, and disaster risk management.
Minister Morgan took the opportunity to express appreciation for the valuable contribution of the Filipino community towards Seychelles’ socio-economic development, with a significant number of Filipinos working in areas such as fisheries, tourism and hospitality, health and caregiving.
He also took note of some important initiatives taken by the Filipino community including the ‘Couples for Christ’ movement.
“Filipinos have integrated into Seychellois society and have now become a viable catalyst for the development -- both social and economic -- of this island nation,” said Minister Morgan.
