President visiting Seychelles

President Mohamed Nasheed has left the Maldives for an official visit to the Seychelles.

The Seychelles has recently undergone rapid economic reforms after facing many of the challenges currently being experienced in the Maldives, a fact the President noted prior to his departure.

Nasheed also revealed plans to hold discussions to establish a tourism link between the two countries, and ways to increase trade profits across the two countries.

During his visit Nasheed will also attend the opening ceremony of the Indian Ocean Island Games.
