Thanks to digital technology Monaco Economic Board is pursuing its mission to develop and promote businesses in the Principality, via webinars and video conferences with Chambers of Commerce to name a few of the actions being taken.
On Tuesday 9 June, Monaco Economic Board hosted its first webinar on the end of the crisis. With lock-down measures being gradually lifted and borders opening up, the time has come to reflect on what comes after Covid-19. MEB started by bringing in key players in the financial market*, in collaboration with AMAF (Monaco For Finance) and Ordre des Experts Comptables (chartered accountants association).
An interactive Q&A webinar hosted by Guillaume Rose and Justin Highman drew on feedback from MEB members and e-spectators in a wide-ranging exchange followed by 150 people which is now available on the website: www.meb.mc. Other topics associated with the economic reality in Monaco will be held soon, starting with international trade on 26 June at 11am.
Another initiative was virtual meetings with MEB partner Chambers of Commerce to set up B2B meetings online. Several preliminary video conference meetings have been held, including with Novosibirsk with the assistance of MEB member Elizaveta Lovering. This was the first virtual forum to be held with business leaders from the Siberian capital who had been particularly enthusiastic about the idea after the MEB’s visit to the city in February. Similar exchanges are set to take place with other Chambers of Commerce.
Lastly, MEB is considering other formats, such as having events simultaneously broadcast across more than one medium online.
Adapting, moving forward, supporting and promoting its members’ businesses, MEB is determined to deliver on its remit in this unprecedented situation that forces all players in the Principality to innovate.
