The seventh Industry Observatory meeting was held in the auditorium of Monaco’s Lycée Technique et Hôtelier on Tuesday evening.
This first anniversary meeting was chaired by Mr Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy, in the presence of Mr Serge Pierryves, Director of Economic Development. This was an opportunity to present the work of the Observatory in detail to the heads of companies in attendance and to review its progress after six meetings during its inaugural year.
The Prince’s Government wanted to thank the 60 industrial companies of the Principality which, during 2016, were kind enough to contribute to the work of the Industry Observatory, by inviting them to this first anniversary event.
Topics for the financial year 2017, announced on Tuesday, include subjects as diverse as an assessment of ongoing negotiations with the European Union, company financing, and reports of the successes of industrial companies operating in the Principality.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
