Seychelles President James Michel, who returned to Victoria on Wednesday from a four-day visit to Shanghai, China, declared at the Pointe Larue airport that he was "completely satisfied" with his visit.

He told local reporters that ties binding China and Seychelles have created opportunities for the benefits of each other.

The president made affirmative comments on Chinese loans offered to students in Seychelles to allow them to access education in a country with a long history and with great advances in scientific research.

He pointed out that the investment opportunities being offered by Seychelles also bring benefits to Chinese firms.

Michel, who paid his second official visit to China, said very soon China and Seychelles will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the arrival of first Chinese people to Indian Ocean island country.
