Monaco receives four new ambassadors

By Stephanie Horsman - May 16, 2022

The Principality welcomes four more new Ambassadors, this time coming from Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Ivory Coast and Ghana.

At a lunch organised on 10th May at the Hermitage Hotel, Minister for External Relations and Cooperation Isabelle Berro-Amadeï met the newest diplomatic arrivals to Monaco. Dato’ Mohd Zamruni Khalid, Menna Rawlings, Maurice Kouakou Bandaman and Anna Bossman had spent the morning presenting their Credence Letters to Prince Albert II before being escorted to the welcoming event.

Dato’ Mohd Zamruni Khalid joined the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1994 before having multiple experiences abroad, particularly in the Malaysian Embassies in Hanoi and Paris and in 2008, becoming Consul General of Malaysia in New York. He then held the position of Deputy Director-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 2011 to 2016 before being appointed Ambassador to Vietnam and more recently to Portugal.

Joining the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office in 1989, Menna Rawlings was appointed Consul General in Washington DC in 2008, then Director General for Economic and Global Affairs at the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office before her appointment to Monaco.

After having been a professor of literature, Maurice Kouakou Bandaman began his political career. Elected mayor of the town of Taabo, he was then deputy to the National Assembly of Côte d’Ivoire, then Minister of Culture and Francophonie from 2011 to 2021.

Anna Bossman worked extensively in the oil, gas and energy sectors, notably as legal counsel. She was, from 2011 to 2017, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Director of the African Development Bank. Ambassador of Ghana to France and Portugal, she is also Ambassador and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO and the OECD.
