Diplomatic relations between China and Seychelles were established on June 30, 1976. China began providing Seychelles with diplomatic aide in 1977, including things such as constructing a poly-technical school and developing housing project in Les Mamelles. In 2002, China exported USD 1.48 million worth of goods, while importing only $100,000 from Seychelles. The current Chinese ambassador to Seychelles is Wang Weiguo, who heads the embassy in Saint Louis, on the island of Mahe. The current ambassador to China from Seychelles is Philippe Le Gall.
From 2000 to 2011, there are approximately 16 Chinese official development finance projects identified in Seychelles through various media reports. These projects range from a concessional loan of 300 million RMB in 2007, to a 321 million debt rescheduling in 2011, and a development aid grant worth $8 million USD in 2011.
