The Seychelles are considered a developing country. A nation's stage of development is determined by a number of factors, including economic prosperity, life expectancy, income equality, and quality of life. As a developing country, Seychelles may not be able to provide consistent social services to its citizens. These social services can include things like public education, reliable health care, and law enforcement. Developing country citizens may have a lower life expectancy than developed country citizens. Every year the Seychelles export about $ 0.52 billion and import about $ 0.85 billion. 3.8% of the country's population are unemployed. The total number of unemployed in Seychelles is 3,619.

The Seychelles' gross domestic product (GDP), valued as purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita, was last measured at $ 25 million.

The average Seychelles citizen has very little wealth. Countries with very low per capita wealth often have a lower life expectancy and a dramatically lower quality of life for their citizens. In countries with very low wealth, it can be very difficult to find a highly skilled workforce as it is difficult for citizens to get the education needed to specialize in industries. Compared to countries with higher wealth per capita, however, labor can be found at very low prices. The Seychelles' annual GDP growth rate averaged 3.7% in 2014. Accordingly, the Seychelles are currently experiencing modest growth. Modest growth countries offer safe investment opportunities; their expanding economy suggests that businesses, jobs and incomes will grow accordingly.
