Challenge Albert II Cup

Further to my #296, there is a slideshow of last year's Prince Albert II Cup (rowing), including a nice pic of PA handing the trophy to the winner.

On February 10th, Prince Albert received two new ambassadors to Monaco: a female ambassador from Finland, and a male from Portugal.

PA will make an official visit to Lisbon, Portugal on April 9th, 2010.

********************

This year, the Principality of Monaco will take over the Presidency of EUROCONTROL - a European intergovernmental organisation concerned with the security of aerial navigation.

Another feather in Monaco's cap :-)

Certainly that is a feather in Monaco's cap indeed! Whatever it is that the job requires surely PA will do a good job at it!

To tell the truth, it's really just a revolving presidency - every member country gets a bite at the cherry eventually :-) - but I'm sure Monaco will make the best of the opportunity!

Further to my #304 on PA receiving two ambassadors, here are some interesting facts about relations between Canada and Monaco:

Monaco has honorary consulates in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Canada has a consulate in Monaco, but is also represented by the Canadian Embassy in France.

Prince Rainier made his last official visit to Canada in 1967 at the Montreal World Fair.

Prince Albert has made one official visit in 1998, but he has made several private visits, usually centered around winter sports.

He competed the first time as an Olympic athlete at the 1988 Calgary Games, and as an IOC member, he supported Vancouver's bis for the 2010 Games.

The Prince also went to Quebec for its 400th anniversary and attended Francophonie events.

PA has established and funded the Canadian Branch of the Prince Albert II Foundation, and he signed a cooperation agreement with the Canadian "Cirque du Soleil".
Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco

This year, Canada will host the 2010 G8 Meeting (June 25th - 26th).

Here's two small pics of Albert with both ambassadors

With the Finnish Ambassador, HE Pilvi-Sisko Vierros-Villeneuve, Ambassadress Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Finland to the Principality of Monaco

With the Portugese Ambassador, HE Francisco Seixas da Costa, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Portugal to the Principality of Monaco

Both ceremonies were held in the presence of Jacques Boisson, Secretary of State, Georges Lisimachio, Head of Cabinet of HSH the Prince, and HE Franck Biancheri, Government Counsellor for External Relations and International Economic and Financial Affairs. At the end of the ceremony, Albert received the Ambassadors for a private audience in the Salon de Famille.

It has already taken place, not sure why it's listed as "a partir de 19h",
that would have also been unusual for such an event..

You're right, the diary has been a bit haywire recently.
They had the skating competition on the list until 2 days ago.

Prince Albert commissioned a study about how Monaco is perceived internally and externally.

Yesterday, the results were published at a seminar by the three external consultants chosen by PA (who is seen as having anticipated the full effect of the economic crisis.

Despite the economic downturn, Monaco still has a positive aura; its image has gained value through public service and the quality of its administration.

Reference was made to the "emblematic couple" - Rainier III and Grace who are still on a pedestal. Prince Albert is perceived as a bridge between the Monaco of today and that which is still "under construction".

There will be two more stages in the study.

Omg it's snowing hee It's so good to see that even with the snow it didn't hamper the meetings

When it snows, it delays everything, guess they are more snow mobile!

The pics were fab it seems there are two sets of military was there another country involved in San Marino besides Monaco?? We notice the red green and white uniforms with the blue and white which belongs to whom??

Post Gistening Seas

So glad to see that the getty images added more pics we had hoped they would! Italy is such a beautiful place as it is but when you add the snow it becomes absolutely enchanting!

Is it a chance that PA would be bringing that snow home to Monaco when he comes back?!! ha

The different Colors of the different guards were exquisite and in the snow made for a truly impressive photos one can only imagine it must have been delightful in person to see. The Pottery in the musee was delightful bet it must have been a wonderful visit! Where are the pottery from does anyone know??

Yet another feather in PA's cap - this time it's his Foundation financing micro-credit with the Yunus Monaco Fund (YMF) and a venture capital organisation.

Professor Muhammad Yunus got the Nobel Prize for enabling poor women in Bangladesh and many other countries, setting up very small businesses through micro-finance from the Grameen Bank.

The YMF is aimed at setting up social businesses in Africa, initially Tanzania, Burkina Faso. South Africa and Madagascar.
