Republic of Seychelles
The Republic of Seychelles is an independent presidential republic within the British Commonwealth. The head of state is the President, who is also the head of the Cabinet of Ministers. The National Assembly is the legislative body of the state, consisting of members elected by direct vote. The British system of self-government was liquidated by a coup d'état supported by multi-party elections in 1993. In the same year, a new Constitution was adopted.
Currently, the Government contributes to the inflow of foreign investment and considers them a key factor in national economic growth. The Seychelles economy is mainly based on tourism, fishing and coconut and vanilla processing.
In 1995, the Parliament of the Republic of the Seychelles adopted legislation regulating business management and instructed to supervise this activity by a special body called Seychelles International Business Management (SIBA).
The Seychelles occupy a strategic location at the intersection of major commercial sea lanes and air traffic lines. Seychelles International Airport is one of the largest in the Indian Ocean. Seychelles is equipped with an effective system of national and international tele-radio communications between the islands of the archipelago, with neighboring countries and countries on the African coast, as well as satellite communications - 1 Intelsat, serving the Indian Ocean region.
