Port Victoria does it again


Port Victoria has once again made it on top of the international podium by clinching the award for ‘The best performance/progression for traffic growth 2015 – 2016’ at the African Ports Award ceremony held in Livingstone, Zambia last week.
Port of Louis (Mauritius) and Port of East London (South Africa) followed in second and third place respectively, while Namibia’s Port of Walvis Bay was named the best port policy for capacity building.
The colourful award presentation of the third African Ports Awards event was held on the night of November 23, 2017, at the official closing ceremony of a two-day conference and workshops organised by The Port Management Association of Eastern & Southern Africa (PMAESA), under the theme ‘Raising the Profile of Land-linked Countries in the Logistics and Maritime Value Chain’.
The chief executive of the Seychelles Ports Authority (SPA), Col. Andre Ciseau, had the honour of receiving the trophy from Hon. Brian Mushimba, who is Zambia’s Minister for Transport & Communications.
Col. Ciseau said that this award underlines yet another achievement of Port Victoria on the international level.
“Despite being a comparatively small port with limited space and facilities, Port Victoria, being the gateway to the economy of Seychelles, has shown resilience to the multiple challenges at hand and has performed brilliantly in all aspects of the services it provides,” he added.
With a major redevelopment plan expected to begin in the near future, SPA is convinced that Port Victoria will further stand out among the big ports of the region and internationally. It will certainly become an even more important regional link, as it is geographically well positioned between Asia and Africa. The extension project will foster greater economic growth for Seychelles as it will cater for more and bigger vessels, trade volumes and provide more business opportunities locally.
SPA wishes to thank all its hardworking and devoted employees, partners and stakeholders for their support and cooperation accorded to the organisation in the face of many challenges and living up to its motto ‘Propelling Port Victoria forward’.
It is to be recalled that earlier this year Port Victoria was voted the Indian Ocean’s Leading Cruise Port for the fifth consecutive year by the World Travel Awards.
