Prince urges environmental care

Prince urges environmental care

By Cassandra Tanti - June 2, 2016

PRINCE ALBERT, MONACO DIPLOMACY: Prince Albert has urged the Philippines government to protect the environment during his two-day visit to the Southeast Asian country on Thursday, signing a historic cooperation deal with President Benigno Simeon Aquino III on resource protection…

The relationship between the Principality and the Philippines “will continue to grow and flourish, in light of our commitment to build upon the friendship, cooperation, and solidarity between our peoples,” said President Aquino, the Manila Bulletin newspaper reported.

Prince Albert II arrived in Manila on Wednesday in his first visit in 17 years, and feasted with Aquino on ‘Tinola of the seas’, a Filipino ginger and onion-based soup with various seafood including marlin and Quezon blue crab, according to the Philippines Inquirer newspaper.

Following the luncheon and a meeting in which the Philippine-Monaco Framework Agreement for Cooperation was signed, the head of the House of Grimaldi was due to head to the atoll coral reef Tubbataha in the Sulu Sea, renowned for its big fish diving. Prince Albert also reiterated his support for a huge international fund to help nations most likely to be affected by climate change, including the Philippines.

Prince Albert took charge of the Mediterranean microstate in March 2005 at the age of 47, and under his reign Monaco has become known as an environmentally-sensitive and sustainable ‘country with a conscience’, according to the government website, which also touts the slogan ‘Small Country. Global Focus’.
