During their visit to Jakarta, the members of the Monegasque delegation actively participated in the activities of several working groups, the groups “Exchange and cooperation”, “Support and Training” and “Policies and Procedures”.

They also had many fruitful discussions with members of other delegations.

Several contacts were also taken to sign new cooperation agreements at the 26th Plenary Meeting of the Egmont Group to be held in The Hague (Netherlands) in July 2019.
