It has been described that Seychelles and Japan signed a grant aid agreement for fisheries on June 24, 2008. The same day, the Japanese ambassador to Seychelles, Shigeo Iwatani, who signed the agreement, paid a visit to President James Michel at State House.

Mr Iwatani discussed with the Seychellois President several issues that will boost the relationship between the Japan and Seychelles.

It is worth noting that President Michel gave feedback on his visit to Japan, which was on May 28-30 when he attended the 4th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (Ticad IV).

Michel and Iwatani also discussed another visit by the President to Japan. Mr Iwatani said that they are arranging a date for the visit. This time the visit will be used for talks on bilateral issues.

The discussion by Michel and Iwatani covered the 5-year action plan to identify concrete cooperation projects between Seychelles and Japan.
