The technical coordinators for Monaco’s overseas aid projects have been meeting in Monaco this week to discuss their monitoring work and to hear from Gilles Tonelli, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, about the government’s development policies.
The week centred on various workshops to enhance the quality of aid, strengthen links between the teams in Monaco and on the field, and take stock of ongoing projects.
Monaco currently operates technical aid programmes in six countries: Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Tunisia and Burkina Faso, most of them among the poorest nations in Africa.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.

Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.

Sonia Irvine, the driver behind Amber Lounge, Formula One’s biggest weekend bash, confirmed that, as of yesterday, Amber Summer is a go…
For the first time in its 14-year history, Monaco's Grand Prix ultimate post-race party known as Amber Lounge will morph into 'Amber Summer' the week following race weekend. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years,” Sonia tells Monaco Life, “and all the pieces fell into place, so it was time. I’m very excited to be doing something new.” Open daily from 17:00, Amber Summer will take over 350 square metres at the Meridian Beach Plaza serving an Asian-style night menu, a late night menu and, for revellers, breakfast from 05:00 to 07:00. Unlike Amber Lounge and it’s wild nightlife, Amber Summer will be a place to relax, as Sonia explains: “You can come in your beachwear and have a casual drink, or bite to eat before heading out at midnight to the clubs, like Jimmyz, and then come back to Amber Summer for breakfast.”
