VICTORIA, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Three lecturers at the Seychelles Tourism Academy (STA) left the country over the weekend to undertake a five-week training course in tourism development at the Habin Commerce University in China.

According to the three trainee teachers, this module will involve learning how tourism can be used to bring about development in the country. The training was sponsored by the Chinese Embassy in the Indian Ocean island state. Three other lecturers from the same institution will be going to China for a three-month training course starting in October 2010.

This is the first time for lecturers from STA to undergo training in China in a sign to show that STA is seeking to enrich its competence and deepen the knowledge of its students.

This is also a testimony to the willingness by Seychelles to understand China much better and increase the number of Chinese visitors.

In the opinion of many players in the tourism industry, the Chinese tourism market still remains under-exploited.
