Monaco’s chamber of commerce, the Monaco Economic Board, has issued an invitation to Monaco-registered companies to take part in two upcoming economic missions. At the very beginning of May, from May 1 until May 3, the MEB is organising an economic mission to Slovakia, one of central Europe’s most successful economies, and from May 3 until May 5 the Board is conducting the same type of mission to Chisinau, the capital of Moldova.
While Slovakia has a highly-skilled workforce and the world’s highest output of cars per capita, Moldova is very reliant on agriculture, particularly winemaking. The country has launched seven free economic zones that could provide good opportunities for investors, the MEB says.
Companies that are interested in participating in the missions do not have to be members of MEB, said Michel Dotta, President of the Board. The cost of participation in the economic mission to Slovakia is €1,900 for non-members of MEB, €1,400 for members, and for both missions €2,700 or €2,200. Flights, transfers, hotels and bilateral meeting arrangements are included in the cost.
It’s been a month of diplomatic accreditations, with several ambassadors officially presenting their credentials in Monaco and internationally.
The crisis brought about by Covid-19 cost the Principality €900 million in profits for the first half of the year, the latest report from IMSEE has revealed.
Giulio Alaimo has presented his credentials as the new Ambassador of Italy to Prince Albert.
The latest survey by IMSEE has revealed that the business climate continued to weaken in July, though retail trade and the auto commerce and repair sectors saw slight improvements.
