Overview

Travel and tourism accounts for nearly 25% of Seychelles’ GDP and the total contribution makes up around 60.8% of GDP according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC 2011). In 2011 this figure was expected to fall in the short term but rise by 3.5% per annum over the coming decade. As a result, the WTTC ranked Seychelles 6th out of 181 countries in terms of the relative contribution of tourism to the economy, 46.8% above the world average. The sector supports, both directly and indirectly, 59.9% of total employment. This was forecast to follow the same pattern, which means that by 2022 the industry will employ around 24,500 people. In 2011 visitor exports produced 33.3% of total exports. In 2011 Seychelles received 194,000 tourists.
