Blue Economy legacy denies President Michel a quiet retirement
The Indian Ocean Observatory reports on President Michel's latest advocacy work in the field of the Blue Economy, after stepping down as President.
"When he made the Blue Economy as the main anchor of his administration, Seychelles third President James Michel had turned his government’s service delivery commitment and manifesto into a life-long calling.
Indeed the Blue Economy has stayed with him even after he has retired.
Many anticipated that President Michel would quietly amble into retirement after he stepped down from office late last year.
But the man credited in promoting the “Blue Economy” to the world is now a much-sought-after lecture circuit speaker gracing global podiums in university lecture halls and think tanks panels expounding on his economic concept."
