The Junior Economic Chamber of Monaco (JCEM) will highlight finance during its first Business Time of 2018 with the theme being the attractiveness and prospects of Monaco as a financial centre.
The thematic networking event on Thursday, March 15, at CREM, the Club for Foreign Residents of Monaco, will be marked by presentations from three experts: Ben Robson, CEO of Spectrex Commodities and author of "Currency Kings: How Billionaires Traders Made Their Fortune Forex Trading;” Gregory Moscato, Director of Finance at the International University of Monaco; and David de Pariente, partner in the independent law and tax law firm Gordon S. Blair.
Financial activities are currently undergoing profound changes, both internationally and in the Principality. The speakers will demonstrate how Monaco is constantly adapting to attract investors and meet the increasingly demanding requirements of major players in the sector.
The talk at 6:30 pm will be followed by a networking cocktail. Tickets (€25) can be purchased online.
JCEM will also be holding a networking breakfast on March 22 under the topic: Monaco, towards a smarter city?
To be held at the Meridien Beach Plaza at 8:15 am, guest speakers will include Georges Marsan, Mayor of Monaco, on the topic of Police Optimisation and Smart Parking Deployment, and Paul Jolie, Digital Advisor to the Minister of State, on Smart City Strategy of the Prince's Government.

The rainy weather of early Sunday morning failed to discourage the many runners who braved the Monaco 10 km.
The 5 km Pink Ribbon Walk, which raises awareness for breast cancer, also brought together more than 300 supporters, with many dressed, as usual, in colourful apparel.

In the main event, two runners quickly escaped to be alone in the lead. The Nice-Côte d'Azur Athlete Karim Tahri broke away midway to win in 31:14, ahead of the Carabinier of AS Monaco Quentin Chiai, who gave everything in 31:47, and the Italian Jacopo Boscarini in 31:51.
In the women's competition, the Val de Gray triathlete Mathilde Gautier won in 37:04, more than two minutes ahead of Poland’s Katarzyna Anna Stankiewicz in 39:34.
The awards ceremony was held on the Quai Albert 1er under an intensifying rain, in the presence of many Monaco personalities including the Minister of Interior Patrice Cellario and the current holder of the Women’s Marathon World Record, Paula Radcliffe.
