Four of the nine executive members of the new governing board of Round Table Seychelles yesterday morning paid a courtesy call on President Wavel Ramkalawan at State House.

The aim of the visit was for the members to brief the President on the successes, challenges and future plans of the organisation.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, Round Table Seychelles number 2 chairman, Alex Freminot, said that it was customary for Round Table Seychelles to meet up and brief the President on the status of the organisation after a new board is appointed each year. The new board was elected in June.

Mr Freminot stated that the meeting was very fruitful where both government and Round Table Seychelles have reaffirmed support for each other for the benefit of the community.

With regard to future plans, Mr Freminot said that they discussed projects that could be undertaken to benefit the community which include completing two classrooms and a multi-purpose area for students at the School for the Exceptional Child at Roche Caiman.

As the organisation will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, Mr Freminot said that they also talked to the President on including the Regatta as part of the celebration on the agenda, if everything goes well. It is to be noted that the popular charity event held every year at the Beau Vallon beach did not take place during the past two years as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The three other Round Table members present were Alexander Durup (president), Darell Benoit (secretary) and Allan L’Etourdie (treasurer).

Round Table Seychelles forms part of Round table International and Mr Benoit as the outgoing chairman for the African, Middle East and Indian Ocean Region for 2021-2022, also took the opportunity to share with President Ramkalawan work done especially for the Indian Ocean Region during his two-year tenure as chairman.
