The Brasil Monaco Project (BMP) helped organise the “Blue Economy” event, which took place on Monday, April 24, aboard the Brazilian offshore supply ship, Vital de Oliveira, moored in Monaco for the International Hydrographic Organisation’s first Assembly.

BMP’s participation was one of many activities over the last five years between Brazil and the Principality, as requested by its President of Honour, Prince Albert.

Ms Luciana de Montigny, President of Brasil-Monaco Project and her husband, André de Montigny, Honorary Consul of Brazil in Monaco, work closely with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, represented by Raphael Cuvelier, as well as Olivier Dufourneaud of the Oceanographic Institute, the President of Monaco Brazil Invest Association, Marcos Pileggi, and Wald Filho, Consul of Monaco in Brazil. In addition, Justin Highman of the Monaco Economic Board also works to stengthen the ties between the two countries.

The “Blue Economy” conference is an example of the various activities carried out by the Brasil-Monaco Project, which is also actively participating in the project to install a miniature reproduction of the Prince’s Palace in a park in Gramado in Brazil, a tribute to the Principality and a way of illustrating the strong ties between the two countries.

Brasil Monaco Project is also working on the creation of a “Grimaldi Dynasty”-themed parade, which could be presented at the Rio de Janeiro 2019 Carnival, the annual event anticipated by millions of Brazilians and rebroadcast across the world.
