On the occasion of his presence in Yerevan, Gilles Tonelli signed two financing agreements that cover the duration of the next quadrennium (2019-2022), underlining the constant commitment of the Government of Monaco to the Francophonie.

  • A convention with the OIF to fix the amount of the voluntary contributions of the Principality of Monaco, by updating the commitments made previously. It focuses on themes that are dear to the Principality, namely learning the French language (especially for the benefit of migrant and refugee populations), education (especially that of girls), youth (through its volunteer program), the preservation of the environment and the energy transition.
  • A Convention with the Institute of La Francophonie for Sustainable Development (IFDD) for sustainable tourism in small island developing States and the fight against climate change.
