Monaco Government Update 24 Aug

The South African swimmer, Ryk Neethling, has been appointed CEO of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa, a prestigious voluntary position in South Africa’s charitable sector. Last year, the Foundation taught 2,500 children to swim and 27,000 children essential water safety skills through 23 projects in South Africa.

Her Serene Highness described Mr Neethling as a man of integrity, talent and remarkable inner strength. Mr Neethling made a splash in Monaco in June, when he and Percy Montgomery, won the Riviera Water Bike Challenge, the 21km water race from Nice to Monaco, in aid of the Foundation.

On Tuesday, the Secretary General of the Monaco Red Cross, gave a lecture on the Monaco Pavilion in Milan, which continues to Burkina Faso. The Principality was the first country to design a removable and recyclable pavilion. The result impressed commissioners of pavilions of participating countries who were excited by the action of the Principality through its Monaco Red Cross, and will most likely encourage countries to consider their participation in the future in this direction.
