The 29th meeting of members of the Monaco Economic Board (MEB) attracted some 250 people on Monday, June 12, at the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel, where the deck provided an ideal setting for networking.
Among several topics, MEB President Michel Dotta spoke about the forthcoming economic missions to Tel Aviv, Astana and Tunis that will all take place by mid-July.
Mr Dotta also talked about the two economic missions that accompanied the official visits of Prince Albert, as well as MEB 20 members, to Slovakia and Moldova from May 1 to 5. He emphasised the exceptional support that the presence of the Sovereign represents “that opens all doors to us”.
Another topic of Monday’s gathering that brought together more than 20 business and professional sectors was the promotion of financial activities carried out in London from the beginning of the year. This was executed in partnership with Monaco For Finance, led by Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy.
Lionel Galfré, director of IMSEE, who will use the data from “Monaco in Figures 2017”, which has just been published, is drawing up a statistical portrait of Monaco, a valuable tool for many in the Principality.
The next Members’ Meeting will take place on September 18 at the Monaco Yacht Club.
