Press Statement
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
June 29, 2018


On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Seychelles on the 42nd anniversary of your independence.

In just over four decades, your accomplishments in economic growth, environmental protection, and social development have been deeply impressive. Your country’s ability to attract increasing numbers of tourists without harming your unique marine flora and fauna has been an example for the world. Seychelles has played an essential role in preventing Indian Ocean piracy, an especially valuable contribution given your population size and strategic position.

Since independence, Seychelles has come to be seen by many as a symbol of success in the region. I join you in celebrating the achievements of the past 42 years and wish you success in accomplishing national goals for many decades to come.
