"St. Ange has done an outstanding job in the tourism field and has managed to brand Seychelles globally as a desirable destination," says African Diaspora Tourism publisher Kitty Pope.

"He is a strong believer in strategic regional marketing approaches as demonstrated by the successful Vanilla Island Cooperation of Indian Ocean Island. Having developed win-win marketing partnerships with African mainland and other destinations, St. Ange is very visionary and insightful as a leader. He would bring the same commitment and expertise in tourism to the UNWTO Executive Council," says Pope. "I am certain he will be able to help increase tourism arrivals to Africa in a few years the same way he has for Seychelles. I believe St. Ange has the capability of making Africa a premier global destination of the twenty-first century."

St. Ange is the creator of Carnaval Internationale de Victoria (The Carnival of Carnivals), where got participation from various countries around the globe. His idea for such a carnival was to bring different cultures together for celebration in Seychelles. He has also launched other successful, original marketing campaigns where he worked with global media outlets to raise the profile of Seychelles. Having worked as CEO of Seychelles Tourism and now as minister of Tourism and Culture for more than a year, St. Ange helped to reinvigorate and reinvent Seychelles Tourism.

A sought-after speaker and conference presenter, St. Ange has become a highly-regarded African tourism leader and has worked with other countries in helping to put together portfolios to increase tourism arrivals. Many global organizations leaders in Africa are supporting St. Ange's nomination to UNWTO. His philosophy of "friends of all, enemies of none" has gained him respect around Africa and beyond. African Diaspora Tourism believes that St. Ange will be a valuable asset if he is elected to the African seat on the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Executive Committee.
