More about Seychelles
- COUNTRYVV: Overview of labor market in Seychelles, including latest unemployment rate and youth unemployment. Also covers job distribution by economic sectors, such as public sector, finance and hotels and restaurants.
With a gross national income (GNI) of (2017) US $ 14 180 per resident, the Seychelles are one of the richest countries in Africa. The economic basis is fishing and tourism.
Foreign trade: Due to the strong dependency on imports, the trade balance is negative (import value 2014: 961 million US $, export value: 516 million US $). The main imports are food, oil, machinery and finished products. The most important export products are fish and fish products (especially canned tuna). The main trading partners are France, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Spain and the United Arab Emirates.
Agriculture with the traditional export products copra and cinnamon only plays a subordinate role. It only contributes 3% to the gross domestic product (GDP). Due to the unfavorable natural conditions, only 13% of the island’s areas are suitable as agricultural land. The export products tea, copra and cinnamon are mainly grown on plantations. Mainly potatoes, yams, sugar cane, mangoes, avocados and bananas are grown and pigs are kept for personal use. Self-sufficiency with agricultural products is not possible. The staple food rice, as well as milk, dairy products and other foodstuffs, have to be imported.
Fisheries: Fisheries play an increasingly important role in feeding the population and also in export. With the establishment of a 200-nautical-mile zone (1978), the islands, which are spatially far apart, created an economic zone of over 1 million km 2. Fishing licenses are also sold to foreign companies.
The extraction of guano was given up for ecological reasons, in the artisanal mining still smaller amounts are promoted. In addition, small amounts of sand, gravel, granite and coral rock are extracted.
The processing industry, which including mining and construction (2014) contributes around 27% to GDP, is essentially limited to the production of beverages (beer) and cigarettes, fish factories and the processing of agricultural export products. The most important industrial location is the capital Victoria.
Since the opening of the international airport in 1971, tourism has rapidly developed into one of the most important economic sectors in the country. The number of foreign visitors rose from 3,175 (1971) to 229,100 (2013), 80% of them from Europe (mainly from France, Italy and Germany). The main tourist destinations are the beaches of the islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue as well as the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The main islands are well developed. Most of the road network (around 500 km) is paved. Shipping traffic exists between the islands. Foreign trade is handled primarily via the deep-water port of Port Victoria on Mahé, with a freight line going to South Africa. The international airport near the capital Victoria is of great importance for tourist traffic. On some islands there are small airports to which Air Seychelles flies regularly.

The islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue are the most densely populated, around 90% of the Seychelles live on Mahé. Many of the smaller islands of the outer Seychelles, on the other hand, are uninhabited. The share of the urban population is 55% (2017); the only major settlement in the archipelago is the capital, Victoria on Mahé. Ten thousand citizens of Seychelles live abroad.
Social: The island nation is one of the more affluent countries in Africa, with a very uneven distribution of income. The medical care of the population is significantly better than on the African continent. In 2012, there were 3.4 hospital beds and 1.2 doctors for every 1,000 residents.
