Prince Albert took part in a series of bilateral meetings – as well as two sessions entitled “Hope for elephants” and “Taking action on the oceans” – during the World Economic Forum in Davos which ended on Friday.

Presided over by Klaus Schwab, the flagship event for globalisation, now in its 48th annual edition, was opened by India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and ran for three days from January 23, attracting 3,000 participants, 70 Heads of State or Government, in addition to 38 leaders of international organisations, including the UN, IMF, World Bank, WHO, WTO and ILO.

Prince Albert’s contributions were particularly relevant, since the Global Risk Perception Survey 2018 (GRPS) has identified the five most probable risks, are, in descending order: “Extreme climate events” at the top of the list; then “Natural disasters”; third “Cyber-attacks”; followed by “Data theft or fraud”; and in fifth place, “Failure of policies to combat climate change”.

Addressing assembled leaders during “Taking action on the oceans”, the Sovereign Prince told assembled leaders: “States have a greater responsibility. (…). Civil societies must also take on their responsibilities. NGOs must step up their efforts, as we do with my Foundation. And businesses, above all, should harness their resources and their capacity for innovation to support an economy capable of generating growth and profits without impoverishing the seas.”

Monaco’s National Day, celebrated on Tuesday, was filled with all wonderful pomp and ceremony the people of the Principality have come to expect, but this year, the crowds had even more. Everyone was positively enchanted by the nearly five-year old princely twins, who adorably made the day. National Day, held every 19th November, is about […]
