MEB consolidates ties with Italy at Monaco Business fair

Monaco Economic Board (MEB) signed a cooperation agreement with the Italian Nice, Sophia-Antipolis, Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce at the Monaco Business fair on Wednesday 6 October at Méridien Beach Plaza’s Sea Club. The organisations shared a large stand and took part in a conference on trade between the two countries.

Guillaume Rose, MEB Executive Director General and Agostino Pesce, Director General of the Italian Nice, Sophia-Antipolis, Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce formalised the coming together of the two at the Monaco Business fair at a ceremony attended by many key figures. Founded in 1997 and recognised by the Italian government and France, this Italian Chamber of Commerce offers a gateway to doing business in Italy by acting as a facilitator.

The two shared a stand to promote the agreement’s potential to local businesses. Key players in both countries’ economies complement each other which along with close integration of Monaco’s economy in the region plays a major role in its growth. Last year at the same event, MEB signed a similar agreement with Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

MEB and the Italian Chamber of Commerce were also partners at a conference on the theme ‘Italo-Monegasque business relations and opportunities’, where the two at the head of these organisations and Italian businessmen operating in the Principality testified to the complementarity. H.E. Mr Giulio Alaimo, Italy’s Ambassador to Monaco also spoke.

The agreement is another string to MEB’s bow in its relations with Italy, which also includes Monaco’s very well established diplomatic and consular network and the Destination Monaco Ambassadors Club comprising captains of industry with strong links to the Principality, as well as Italian entrepreneurs and their representatives who are settled in the city-state.

In December, MEB is organising a major business forum in Monaco in partnership with the Destination Monaco Ambassadors Club and should provide member companies with yet more opportunities to grow their business with its big neighbour.
