Fréderic Platini, Secretary General of the Monegasque Red Cross, received a warm welcome on Tuesday, August 22, when he gave details of the second life of the Monaco Pavilion, which continues its life in Loumbila, Burkina Faso.
The Principality was the first country to design a detachable and recyclable pavilion. The result at Loumbila is breathtaking, Mr Platini said.
The audience, composed of curators from the pavilions of the participating countries at the Astana World Expo, as well as the directors and the president of the Kazakh Red Crescent, was enthusiastic about the Principality’s initiative through the Monegasque Red Cross.
Monaco’s move has aroused real interest and is likely to encourage other countries to reflect on doing the same thing in the future.
During his annual address to the press, National Council President Stéphane Valeri was optimistic for 2022, saying "there are reasons to hope that we can get back to a quasi-normal life.”
Nice Côte d’Azur airport ended 2021 with over 6.5 million passengers passing through, higher than expected and fuelled mainly by a strong summer season and the return of long-haul flights.
It is expected to be another mild, sunny weekend at the region’s ski resorts with plenty of standing snow, while Valberg will be hosting a Monte-Carlo Rallye event on Friday.
The celebration of Sainte Devote, Monaco’s Patron Saint, will be held next week, and again this year the Principality is taking adapted measures to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to participate.
