HE Mr Dusko Markovic, Prime Minister of Montenegro, paid a working visit to Monaco on Thursday, March 9, accompanied by a high-level delegation to participate in meetings focussing on economic cooperation.
The Prime Minister was received in audience by HSH the Sovereign Prince, in the presence of Mr Georges Lisimachio, Head of the Sovereign Prince’s Cabinet, Mr Gilles Tonelli, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and Ms Anne-Marie Boisbouvier, Counsel to the Prince’s Cabinet.
A working lunch was hosted by the Minister of State, attended by the Ministers of Finance and Economy and Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. The points raised concerned, firstly, an economic cooperation project with a view to reaching an agreement on tax matters and also on the protection of the environment.
On Friday, March 10, HE Pavle Radulovic, Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism, will take part in an Economic Forum organised by the Monaco Economic Board and the Montenegro Chamber of Commerce, during which the economic strengths of both countries will be presented.
The Principality has maintained diplomatic relations with Montenegro since 2007. In 2013, on the occasion of the official visit of Prince Albert, a Framework Cooperation Agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding on sustainable development were signed. A partnership agreement was also signed between the two Chambers of Economic Development.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
Prince Albert has warned the National Council that its criticism of his government’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic is unnecessarily escalating the tension and uncertainty surrounding the crisis.
