Many Seychellois have been to Singapore and amidst the frenetic shopping have found time to admire the landscaping of this city state. Billed as the Garden City, Singapore has planted hundreds of thousands of trees and bushes around tourist centers and elsewhere. It is said that our recent landscaping efforts in Seychelles are inspired by Singaporean achievements.
One of the persistent problems we hear about is the lack of qualified people in Seychelles to do the required jobs. In this context, what is baffling is the vast amount of training courses that are provided to our citizens both locally and internationally. So what is the problem? There are several issues here but one is that many of the courses are probably not immediately relevant or transferable to the job at hand.
