The Government held two important meetings on Tuesday, October 24, to provide more details on ongoing negotiations with the European Union. Both were held in the Rainier III Auditorium.
In the morning, a meeting chaired by Gilles Tonelli, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, was held with the Monegasque Committee of Regulated Professions (CMPR), one of a series of meetings to discuss the progress of these important negotiations.
In the afternoon, the conference was co-chaired by Gilles Tonelli and Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Health and Social Affairs, with the main unions and employee and employer organisations of the Principality, the first such meeting with the Government’s partners. Other meetings on the same topic will be held during the year 2018.
While Monaco is anxious to have the best possible relations with the European Union, particularly in the context of trade relations, the Principality is determined that its specific characteristics are recognised and incorporated in any future formal agreement.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
Prince Albert has warned the National Council that its criticism of his government’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic is unnecessarily escalating the tension and uncertainty surrounding the crisis.
