Seychelles Investment Act (2010) aim is: to maintain and improve the standard of living of the Seychellois citizens by creating the economic conditions conducive to increased wealth generation by private businesses and individuals.
This is reinforced by the vision:
- To build on economic environment in which free enterprise can flourish; where the Government assumes its proper role as regulator and facilitator of economic development; where the ideals of transparency, fair play and equality of treatment are paramount and policies maintain a stable society in which all people are afforded the opportunity to realise their maximum potential.
- In order to achieve this, the country has committed itself to supporting an investment friendly climate that guarantees that Seychellois citizens and non-Seychellois investors will compliment each other and foster appropriate linkages with all sectors of the economy.
- While the country’s investment policies encourage the exploration of Seychelles’ natural resources, the improvement of national infrastructure and an increase productivity levels, it also stresses the paramount importance of achieving this in an environmentally sound and sustainable manner.
