The government is hoping to lure visitors back to the Principality with its new ‘Monaco Safe’ label, a guarantee that businesses are following strict health measures set out by the State.
The Prince’s government launched the ‘Monaco Safe’ label on Wednesday 8th July in an effort to boost economic recovery amid the Covid-19 crisis.
The aim is for customers to feel reassured that businesses brandishing the label are complying with the strict health rules in force to fight against the spread of Covid-19 in Monaco.
The label will be awarded to shops, hotels, restaurants, congress centres and all places that welcome the public.
“This is an additional asset available to tourism professionals and traders: the Principality of Monaco is safe and attractive, and it will continue to be so,” said the Government in a statement.
In addition to promoting the ideal image of the Principality, it is hoped the label will serve to unify all companies with the common goal of contributing to the economic recovery of Monaco in complete safety.
The label can be obtained on a voluntary and free basis, quickly and easily via the website: https://teleservice.gouv.mc/monaco-safe/
The Department of Sanitary Action is responsible for conducting checks to confirm the issuing of labels.
Companies will then be able to use the ‘Monaco Safe’ logo in their own communication, while the campaign will be promoted by the State and various bodies including the Tourism and Congresses Department, the Welcome Office and the Monaco Economic Board, to ensure the ‘Monaco Safe’ label is recognised internationally.
