Labour Day Message by Alain St.Ange, Former Seychelles Minister of Tourism

Victoria, Mahé, Seychelles, May 1, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / Labour Day 2021 must be a time for deep reflection. We know that Africa, and the world at large for the matter, continues to be ravaged by the effects of Covid-19 that has resulted in serious job losses. The inability of families to find work in these time of Covid must remain in our thoughts.

Workers Day must this year be marked by reflection of the situation on hand and the hardship being felt by the most vulnerable.

Covid-19 is going nowhere soon and implementing mitigating approaches to stimulate the business world and at the same time extend a safety net to hold those in need must be a priority.

The time for distractions from the reality on the ground will be seen as an insult to all those suffering from the pandemic on hand.

I remain committed to work with all 54 States that makes Africa the great continent it is. Together we shall see the light at the end of the dark Covid-19 tunnel.

Happy Labour Day 2021
