Monaco Economic Board celebrates milestone meeting 

monaco economic board meeting

If collaborations and opportunities were on the menu at the Monte-Carlo Beach last Monday, the celebration of the Monaco Economic Board’s 45th meeting was the main course.  

Some 350 members of the Monaco Economic Board (MEB), from entrepreneurs and business leaders to government actors, came together at the Société des Bains de Mer’s five-star establishment of Monte-Carlo Beach on Monday 26th June for the group’s annual pre-summer meet-up, which was also its 45th reunion. 

Monaco’s Minister for Finance and the Economy, Jean Castellini, took to the stand to address those gathered, sharing a few positive and optimistic words on the Monegasque economy.  

“Statistics don’t lie,” he said of the unveiling of the latest “Monaco in Figures” report by IMSEE, “and in the Principality, they are good, very good.” 

Then it was the turn of Michel Dotta, real estate giant and the president of the MEB, who made a conscious effort to speak on the digital and AI developments within Monaco. 

“At one time, Monaco was a little behind on digital… Today we are making good progression, but only thanks to great effort. We must not make the same mistake with generative artificial intelligence,” said Dotta, before announcing that the MEB will soon be organising a number of workshops on the topic.  

Danièle Garcelon, the General Manager of Monte-Carlo Beach, closed the speeches with a presentation of Club La Vigie and Maona, which opened on 1st July. 

Business cards were exchanged, collaborations discussed, new connections made and plenty of ideas toasted; all-in-all, it was a very successful evening for the MEB, which has been active in the Principality since 1999.

The next general meeting of the MEB will take place on 19th September. A series of economy-focused conferences will be taking place in the autumn too, such as those led by Jean-Pierre Petit on 15th September and Ludovic Subran on 16th October. There are also spaces still available for the MEB’s mission to Amsterdam between 21st and 24th November.
