On Wednesday, the Minister of State opened the Diplomatic Conference, organised by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. This event is held, as every year, in the Principality for two days and brings together Monaco’s entire Diplomatic Corps.
In his opening speech, Serge Telle spoke about the launch of the digital transition and underlined: “Monaco has the resources, structure and advantages to adapt to the digital revolution and make it a strength.” After highlighting the role of Ambassadors in this transition, he asked them about the means they need to support this change.
The Government Advisers then spoke on various topical issues of their respective Department. Stakeholders from the Monaco Economic Board, SBM and other entities followed to inform the Ambassadors on common themes. The day ended with a presentation entitled “Monaco and the ocean: from exploration to protection” offered by the Prince Albert II Foundation, the Oceanographic Museum and the Monaco Scientific Centre.
Tomorrow, a progress report on the state of negotiations between Monaco and Europe will be presented to the Ambassadors, as well as the results of the actions of the Directorate of International Cooperation.
The conference will end with a visit to the premises of MonacoTech, the Incubator /Accelerator Startup programme created by the State in partnership with Monaco Telecom.
