The Seychelles economy has grown rapidly, in recent years, pushing the island into a mid-tier of income generating countries.  Traditionally, the main industry has been tourism, with approximately 20% of labour force employed directly in the sector, as well as tuna fishing.  To reduce the dependence on tourism, the Seychelles government has been rebranding the island’s economy to a service based one, providing fiscal incentives to foreign direct investors.
