Monaco will contribute €2.6 million to health, education and socio-professional integration projects for young people in Lebanon over the next three years, L’Orient Le Jour reports.
A Monegasque delegation, led by Minister of External Relations and Cooperation Gilles Tonelli, arrived in Beirut on Monday, April 9, to launch the projects.

The Principality wants to “strengthen its partnership with Lebanon, mainly in the sectors where it can help it profit from its experience and its contribution, in particular the humanitarian sectors, education and health,” said Minister Tonelli, who was received by the head of state, Michel Aoun, in the presence of the consul of Monaco in Beirut, Béchara el-Khoury.

Mr Tonelli also extended an invitation from Prince Albert II to visit the Principality.
Monaco’s cooperation with Lebanon dates back to 1993, when it was mainly focused on the environment, resulting in the planting of cedars and the cleaning of the coastline.

The Minister said that in the next few years, the Principality would like to participate in the international effort to help Lebanon in the framework of the conferences of Rome and Paris and soon of Brussels.
