Michel Bouquier, Technical Advisor at the Ministry of Finance and Economy, took the opportunity to present the Monaco Private Label programme at the traditional reception to celebrate the anniversary of HSH the Sovereign Prince’s accession held in the gardens of the Monegasque Ambassador’s residence in Italy on July 12.
Mr Bouquier answered a number of questions from Monaco’s consuls in Italy.
His Excellency Mr Robert Fillon, the Ambassador, and his wife, assisted by Second Secretary Ms Martine Garcia-Mascarenhas and the full Embassy team, received more than 300 guests, including officials, diplomats and friends of the Principality.
In addition to representatives from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Apostolic Nuncio and Dean of the Diplomatic Corps in Italy Mgr Emil-Paul Tscherrig, the ambassadors from France and Switzerland, H.E. Mr Christian Masset and H.E. Mr Giancarlo Kessler, also attended the event.
Monaco’s Ambassador to Italy is also accredited to Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, San Marino and, from this year, the Republic of Malta.
Monaco welcomed four new Ambassadors to town this week, given a warm reception by first the Prince, then by the Minister for External Relations and Cooperation, who treated them to lunch.
The Monaco Economic Board has accomplished three missions with three very different entities, starting with a trip to the United States, followed by two locally-based forums with Vietnam and Djibouti.
The Principality welcomes four more new Ambassadors, this time coming from Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Ivory Coast and Ghana.
The Monaco government says it is disappointed Nice taxi drivers plan to stage a protest on the Thursday of the Grand Prix weekend as talks continue between Monaco and the Prefecture of the Alpes-Maritimes.
