‘A clean and safe environment’ is the theme the organisers chose for the habitat exposition held yesterday.
The exposition held on the ground floor of the Independence House was part of activities organised by the Ministry for Habitat, Infrastructure and Land Transport to commemorate World Habitat Day.
Habitat, Infrastructure and Land Transport Minister Pamela Charlette said this theme was chosen to emphasise on the collective efforts being made to eliminate garbage problems, pollutions, noise and other social ills affecting our habitat environment.
“It gives my team and I great pleasure in showcasing our accomplishments,” said Minister Charlette.
She added that the objective of her ministry is to respond to the demands of the citizens of Seychelles for appropriate accommodation, which is one of the fundamental rights to which every human being is inherently entitled to.
She also noted that although the demands for land continuously increases, resources stay very limited in the country which results in not every citizen being able to have their own land.
“Therefore, the department of land use has identified different plots of land for several projects under the land bank programme with the aim of having 200 plots of lands each year to be allocated to people who meet the requirements,” she added.
Minister Charlette also sent out a message to all Seychellois citizens who have bought their plot of land to develop it instead of selling it for profits.
Taking part in the activities were the Property Management Corporation, Housing Finance Company, Land Waste Management Agency and Planning Authority.
The exhibition was open to the public and officials of the different organisations were available to respond to any queries from the public.

The Property Management Company (PMC) is hosting a two-day exhibition to celebrated its 5th anniversary which fell on September 1, 2008. The exhibition, which is being held at the Carrefour des Art art gallery, was officially opened yesterday in the presence of ministers, members of the National Assembly, district administrators as well as PMC staff.
In her opening remarks, Evelina Antat, chief executive of PMC, pointed out that PMC could not do its job without the public themselves taking their responsibilities. “My home, your homes, our homes, I want us all to embrace the homes we have been provided with. It is time we do away with drugs, social ills, neighbours dispute, disturbances, vandalism, non-rent repayment and all the practices that negatively affect our housing estates,” said Ms Antat.
Referring to the exhibition’s theme – ‘My Home, My Responsibility’ -- Ms Antat stated that to maintain a home or a house, is one’s responsibility and that one should ensure all developments made on their houses are safe and secure. The Minister for Habitat, Lands, Infrastructure and Land Transport, Pamela Charlette, who was also present at the ceremony, spoke about the marvellous work that PMC has been doing over the years. During the ceremony, poems were recited to describe the theme ‘My home, my responsibility’ as well as the joy of having a home. Patrick Victor also sang his song entitled ‘PMC’ which has been composed especially for the occasion.
The most repeated line in the song is “ou lakour i ou responsabilite” which is in line with PMC’s main theme. The exhibition showcases a series of PMC’s projects over the past years as well as information on PMC itself. The exhibition will remain open to the public today from 8.30am to 4pm.
