Monaco celebrated its National Day at the Astana Expo 2017 on Sunday, June 25, in the company of Prince Albert, who was accompanied by Princess Stephanie and a large Monegasque delegation.
Mr Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, President of the Senate of Kazakhstan, spoke of the admiration of Kazakhstan for the Principality of Monaco and for its ecological and economic commitments. During His speech, Prince Albert emphasised the common will of the two countries to develop in a sustainable way.
Prince Albert was particularly pleased to welcome the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, to the Monaco Pavilion. The Prince explained to him the commitments of the Principality of Monaco in terms of ecological and sustainable urban development.
The National Day of the Principality of Monaco ended with a “circus dinner show”, organised and staged by Monte-Carlo Festivals. There were around 40 artists from all over the world, all very enthusiastic to participate in an event brilliantly orchestrated by Urls Pilz, Director of the Monte-Carlo Festivals.
During his visit to the Expo, Prince Albert visited several Pavilions, including that of the UAE. Prince Albert commended the UAE’s strategy of diversifying energy resources and investing in energy sources of the future.
“We have started preparations for the Monaco national pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai and we are looking forward to participating in this global event,” Prince Albert said.
The French government is still banking on lifting the current restrictions on 3rd May, a mid-May reopening of restaurant terraces and a return to school at the end of April.
Residents of the Principality aged 45 and over are now being invited to get their Covid vaccination. Meanwhile, home-tests are now being stocked in pharmacies in Monaco.
Monaco has been earmarked as the home for a new private viewing space by Zurich-based gallerists Hauser and Wirth who will hold their inaugural show in June.
The Grand Ball of Princes and Princesses celebrates its fifth year in June, bringing the magic from days of old to life for one night only at the Hôtel de Paris.
