The traditional ceremony of New Year good wishes to the representatives of the Diplomatic Corps accredited in Monaco took place on Tuesday, January 17, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Paris.
Mr Gilles Tonelli, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and HE Mr Claude Cottalorda, Ambassador of Monaco in France, welcomed nearly 90 ambassadors accredited to the Principality of Monaco, the majority of whom are based in France.
In the international context causing continuing concern, the minister read a message from HSH the Sovereign Prince, which stated “our confidence in the future by joining the actions of the Principality to the efforts of the international community to work for a world of peace and cooperation. ”
The message also confirmed to the Ambassadors the continuation of the commitments made by the Principality in the environmental and humanitarian fields, as well as the continuation of discussions with the European Union.
To date, Monaco maintains diplomatic relations with 133 states and 110 Ambassadors are accredited in Monaco, 99 of them from Paris.

If the UK government gets its way, expat pensioners living abroad will pay considerably more in tax on pensions.
A scheme known as Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme (Qrops), which lowers income tax paid on qualifying registered overseas pension schemes to 90 percent of the amount otherwise due, will no longer apply and, from April 6, 2017, 100 percent of income tax will have to be paid, according to a little-noticed proposal in the so-called Autumn Statement by the UK finance minister, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond.
Pensioners currently paying 36 percent will in future pay 40 percent, if the plans make their way into law.
