Seychelles. In January, the government announced that the authorities should develop a warning system to minimize the damage caused by natural disasters. The reason was the tsunami in the Indian Ocean December 26, 2004. The disaster caused extensive material damage in the Seychelles, located about 500 miles from Sumatra where the severe earthquake earthquake occurred and which in turn caused the tidal wave. Only two people died in Seychelles, which was because the authorities managed to warn tourists and residents despite the fact that there was no developed system for it. The tsunami caused damage to the infrastructure for the equivalent of over US $ 30 million. In addition, the coral reef was damaged, especially on the northern and eastern sides of the islands.

In November, Parliament passed a new investment law, prepared for several years. The purpose of the law is to increase investment and increase the security of domestic and foreign investors. In recent years, Seychelles has suffered from a lack of investment and growth has been very weak.

According to countryaah, Victoria is the capital and one of the major cities within the country of Seychelles. The Seychelles laughter was previously close to extinction, but after efforts by the government and environmental organizations, the bird, found only in the Seychelles, is no longer threatened. In 2005, the BirdLife International organization moved the species down from the category “acutely threatened” to “severely threatened”. The Seychelles dwarf tomb, which was declared extinct in the 1950s, has also recovered.
