Four members of the National Assembly of Seychelles attended the 49th Conference of the Commonwelath Parliamentary Association held in Botswana from August 13th to 22nd, 2018. 

The conference was held under the theme “Role of African Parliaments in Development of National and Regional Security”. The theme and the subjects discussed related closely to the work of the Seychelles National Assembly.

In his opening address, the Vice-President of Botswana laid the argument that an effective parliament was an essential element for democracy and good governance in a country. A strong parliament offered the country greater capability in delivering on the expectations of its people in several areas such as employment, food security, health, education and a bright future for youth, and protection of the environment, he said. 

Among the subjects on the agenda of the Conference were combating human trafficking, climate change and its effects on agricultural production, food security and sustainability. These subjects were reflected in the resolutions adopted by the Conference.

The Seychelles delegation was led by Hon. Gervais Henrie and included Hon. Wavel Woodcock, Hon. Wilbert Herminie and Clerk Jutta Alexis. 

The Assembly delegation also visited with Seychellois students at the University of Botswana, following courses in Education.
