Once again we will get the chance to see well-known artists from India who will showcase culture here for us to appreciate, Minister St.Ange added.

He also spoke on the donations which will be given to the Seychelles Tourism Academy and the Plaisance secondary school during this year’s Seychelles-India Day.
