Special guests of the event were Belgian minister of defence Pieter De Crem, Mr. Jan De Nul, the President of De Nul International and other high delegates. The opening dinner has been hosted by Peter Sinon, the Minister responsible for Investment, Industries and Natural Resources of the Seychelles. The forum was attended by over 150 business representatives from Europe. Especially for the event in Brussels also a Bulgarian business delegation has arrived. Although in the last years the fields of tourism and fisheries in Seychelles have the highest economic growth, delegates were confident that the conditions on the islands are appropriate for regular development in the different economic fields.
