Mr. Gervais Moumou
Chief of Protocol (Protocol and Public Diplomacy division)
The Protocol section places emphasis on maintaining high standard services and protocol assistance for VIPs and dignitaries upon their arrivals and departures. Furthermore, protocol staffs initiate and manage processes of obtaining ‘agréments’ from foreign states for accreditations of Seychelles’ ambassadors. The team also coordinates and assists during high-level events and functions ensuring the respect of protocol.
The public diplomacy unit has the task of creating a positive public image of the Government’s foreign policy and implementation.
The unit develops and maintains communication strategies for the department in ensuring that all press communiqués relating to the work of the department are prepared and distributed. This is to ensure effective communication of all initiatives at both international and national media.
The unit facilitates up-to-date and consistent communication of information with our network of overseas missions and consulates.
The unit also engages with outside audiences in the provision of clear, accurate, comprehensive and timely information with regard to the Department’s foreign policy through the use of all media channels.
