Minister of State Serge Telle, represented by Minister of Social Affairs and Health Didier Gamerdinger, chose the occasion of International Women's Day to honour Monaco’s female administrative staff with 20 years of seniority, as well as the new recruits of 2017.
This is a different approach by the administration, the Minister said in his speech, reaffirming the eminent place of the woman in modern society.
Minister Gamerdinger wanted to remind his guests of the leading role of women in the Public Service, adding: “You are a major component of the Administration, in every sense of the word. Some of you have already gained high responsibilities, and you, who have just entered the administration, can legitimately aspire to that, too.”

The Latin American restaurant group, COYA, has announced the launch of its first European site outside London, opening in Monaco in May 2018. Coinciding with the Monaco Grand Prix, COYA will open above Jimmy’z and Monte Carlo Bay.
The 257-cover venue will incorporate a buzzing and vibrant bar and a contemporary Peruvian restaurant, COYA said. In collaboration with Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, COYA Monte Carlo says it is set “to revive the city’s culinary scene, providing a vibrant hub for international visitors and the stars of music, film, fashion and sport”.

Guests will be taken on a Latin American journey from the moment they arrive at the grand entrance of COYA Monte-Carlo. The sweeping terrace with sea views, COYA’s infamous Pisco Bar & Lounge, a luxury shisha experience and resident DJ throughout the summer will make this Monaco’s new hotspot.
A menu of globally renowned COYA dishes will be overseen by Chef Sanjay Dwivedi, who combines traditional elements of Peruvian cuisine with Modern European cooking techniques and Asian influences to create naturally light and healthy dishes.

The décor, designed by the London-based design studio Sagrada, who are responsible for all COYA venues (London, Abu Dhabi and Dubai), will incorporate Peruvian artefacts, plant features and bespoke hand-crafted furniture. A key design feature of the restaurant will be the Ceviche Bar – an open prep kitchen that puts guests at the centre of the action to watch the iconic Peruvian dishes being made.
A 30-seater Private Dining Room will provide ultimate exclusivity and a spectacular dining experience with unrivalled views.
COYA Monte-Carlo will be open in May throughout high season, closing in October 2018 for the winter period.
