The Monaco Yacht Show’s new prestige car exhibition zone, announced at the beginning of June by the show organisers, has announced its premier automobile brands: Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce in association with the broker Burgess, Tesla and the group Centigon, specialist in armouring luxury cars.
About ten models will be displayed at the MYS Car Deck, which will offer a 230m² indoor lounge bar for all of the show’s visitors and exhibitors. In an echo of Monaco’s iconic Top Marques event, cars will be available for purchase or a test drive in the heart of the town.
The Italian brand, Lamborghini, has already announced it will be exhibiting the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder whose high performance and sharp and sporty design have made it one of the most desirable cabriolets on the market. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will exhibit the Rolls-Royce Dawn with aesthetics to seduce a younger clientele, which symbolises the historical glamour of this British house that has been in operation for almost 113 years
Launched in the United States in 2003, Tesla Motors, specialised in the manufacture of luxury and sporty electric cars, will present the Model S P90D with staggering speed performance.
Centigon France, one of the leading specialists in armoured cars, will offer the protected and extended versions of the Range Rover Autobiography (+30 cm) and the Mercedes Benz Class S550 (+65 cm). For many years, major automobile manufacturers have indirectly participated in the Monaco Yacht Show by chauffeuring their VIP visitors and private clients of exhibiting companies.
The launch of the Car Deck at the show this September reflects the desire of these brands to associate themselves with the MYS. It is also designed to meet the needs of yachting companies by attracting a new wealthy clientele to the quays of Port Hercules. (Sources: MYS, theislander.net)

The Commission, under the chairmanship of the Minister of State, is composed of 13 members. Created in February 2010 by the Prince's Government, it responds to the wish of HSH the Sovereign Prince to preserve in the Principality the intellectual wealth of its youth and also to facilitate the return of expatriate graduates to Monaco.
The executive unit's mission is to support young Monegasque and resident graduates by promoting the establishment of bridges, and by establishing privileged contacts with companies to facilitate their access to skilled jobs, particularly in the private sector.
Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Didier Gamerdinger reminded those present that the integration of young graduates is at the heart of the concerns of the Prince's Government.
Since the creation of the Commission, a total of more than one thousand young graduates have been interviewed in order to be able, at the end of their training, to benefit from support to find a first job, while 236 graduates, including 123 of Monegasque nationality, found a position in Monaco corresponding to their qualifications. Twenty-one expatriates have successfully benefited from this support.
These meetings have allowed for more than seven years of discussions which have helped to highlight some of the obstacles and have resulted in more personalised support, the increased awareness of business leaders and a better knowledge of the employment-generating sectors in the Principality.
The cost of schooling a child has risen by two percent in France over the last year. Rising prices of school supplies and other equipment required by the Ministry of Education are not the only cause. The list of things to buy has also lengthened since August 2015.
Throughout the year, parents are required to pay for school transport, canteen, insurance, and outings. According to the Confederation of Families (CSF), the cost of schooling increased mainly because of the number of items on the list given to parents. The CSF points out that it is difficult for a child to get by without a computer, which can cost about €600. Sportswear costs are also an issue.
Among parents interviewed by the confederation, 80 percent were already equipped with computers by 2015, and nearly 23 percent have invested in one for the 2016 school year. The confederation has asked for an increase in the annual tax allowance for education.
