AS Monaco is a football club which plays in the French football league.
PA and others have shares in the club through their stake in SBM (Société des Bains de Mer) which also runs the casinos.

Albert is keen to support ASM as a training base, but also wants to put it on a firm financial footing. The last two chairmen (incl Michel Pastor) have not come to grips with the financial side.

PA is appealing to the Monégasques and residents to support Monaco's institutions during the economic downturn / international crisis. He has total confidence in his government, and he refers to the G20 "blacklist" regarding fiscal transparency/cooperation; the aim is to get off thist list a.s.ap.

Indeed, Monaco is off the Black List and is now on the Grey List:

"A separate 'grey list' of countries that have agreed to improve transparency standards but have not yet signed the necessary international accords included Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Singapore and Chile as well as the Cayman Islands, Liechtenstein and Monaco."

it would be nice to see some pics of the scenery with PA in it or some of the art as well.
We could see some items they were enjoying on the tables and that's nice.
But, it would be nice to see more. the clipper ship in the background is superb as well as the art hanging from the wall, whom were the artists?

the tapestry in the first pic on the wall is the presidential shield of Croatia...and the items on the table are the gifts that were exchanged....Albert gave our president a book about the history pf the Grimaldis and Monaco...and he got some chess pieces that represent famous croatian people from the past...if I remember correctly....I will post the links here if it is possible...

su-perb pics and story on PA visit.
The chess set must have been beautiful as well as the book on Grimaldi visit will provide for hours of interesting reading--we have yet to finish our reading on the Grimaldi history!
Croatia is indeed a pretty country so glad they were able to capture a few of the beautiful aspects of this fabulous country!
the pics of PA at the palais and the small story with it are a mah-velous little 'glimpse" as to the variety of beautiful decorations in the Palais---very elegantly and classily done!!

Thanks for the update, queenofthelight!
So Albert combines the two official visits to Croatia and Romania,
that's practical and ecologically sensible I've missed pics of
day 2 in Croatia, but am looking forward to pics from his stay in
Romania.
