Unveiled the plaque and handed over the Modestie Road Surfacing Project in Grand Anse, Praslin on 14 February 2020

 

High Commissioner of India, H.E. General Dalbir Singh Suhag formally unveiled the plaque and handed over the Modestie Road Surfacing Project in Grand Anse, Praslin on 14 February 2020, under the 33 High Impact Community Development Projects being undertaken in Seychelles. The project costing SCR 504,300 is funded under India’s grant assistance and is being implemented by Seychelles based 'W Building Constructor', thereby directly contributing to more employment opportunities for Seychellois.

 

Speaking at the event, High Commissioner said he was happy to note that with this event, the local Government projects at Praslin have reached the completion stage and added that these 33 projects under final stages of implementation, shall not only generate more employment and business opportunities to Seselwa, but also touch the lives of each and every one!

Delivering his Speech, High Commissioner noted that, the Surfacing and extension of Modestie Road will not only improve the safety and accessibility but also be a lifeline for 14 families in this locality, providing them motorable road for the daily transportation especially for the school children and in case of any emergencies and added that the High Commission is working closely with the Ministry of Local Government and undertaking these High Impact projects, which will have maximum positive impact for the community as a whole!

 

It is praiseworthy to note that the Government of India is already assisting Seychelles in constructing the 3 National Priority Projects of Seychelles including Government House Secretariat Building, new Police Headquarters with forensic laboratory, new Attorney General's Office all put together costing an estimated SCR 1.4 Billion (USD 100 Million).

 

Apart from this, Government of India would be constructing the state-of-the-art International Convention Centre in Mahe with a capacity of 2000 pax named after Mahatma Gandhi, besides the Magistrates’ Courthouse building which is already under construction, all on a grant basis. The Magistrates’ Court project would be completed by May 2020 and handed over to the people of Seychelles.

Dignitaries and guest present at the event included the Member of Nation Assembly (MNA) for Grand Anse, Praslin, Hon. Wavel Woodcock and the Principal Secretary of Local Government Mrs. Marie Celine Vidot. The dignitaries took a stroll across the surfaced road post the event.
