Some scholars suppose that after Maldivian and Austronesian seafarers and Arab traders were the first to go to the uninhabited Seychelles. This premise is founded on the discovery of graves in 1910.

A transit point for trade between Asia and Africa, the isles were sometimes used by pirates until the French started to take control beginning in 1756 when Captain Nicholas Morphey placed on Mahé a Flagstone of Possession. The islands were named after Jean Moreau de Séchelles, the Minister of Finance of Louis XV.

The British controlled the isles between 1810 and 1794. French administrator of Seychelles during the years of war with all the Uk, Jean Baptiste Quéau de Quincy, declined to resist when armed enemy warships arrived. Rather, he negotiated the standing of capitulation to Britain which gave a privileged position of neutrality to the settlers.

Britain assumed complete control in 1810, formalised in the Treaty of Paris in 1814. Elections were held in 1970 and 1966.


Independence came in 1976. Single-party rule was brought into a close having a fresh constitution and free elections in 1993. Vice President James Alix MICHEL took on the presidency as well as in July 2006 was elected to a fresh five-year period; he was reelected in December 2015 and in May 2011.

Since independence in 1976, per capita output in this Indian Ocean archipelago has expanded to roughly seven times the pre-autonomy, close-subsistence level, transferring the isle to the upper-middle-income group of states. Growth was led by the tourist sector, which provides more than 70% of hard currency earnings and employs about 30% of the labor force, and by tuna fishing.
Recently, the government has encouraged foreign investment to upgrade hotels and other services. In once, the government has moved to decrease the reliance on tourism by encouraging the development of fishing, farming, and small scale production.
In December 2013, the IMF declared that Seychelles had transitioned to your market-based economy with a financial excess along with full employment. Seychelles grew at 4.3% in 2015 because of a powerful tourist sector and expanding private sector credits; its financial surplus reached 4% of GDP.
