Monaco Government Update 7 June

Monaco’s Honorary Consulate in Turin has resumed its activities following the appointment of a new Consul, Ms. Licia Mattioli, who heads a major jewellery firm and also plays a leadership role within the Italian employers’ federation (Confindustria). The Consulate in Turin had been closed for several months following the resignation of the previous Consul. The new Consulate was officially opened by H.E. Mr Robert Fillon, Monaco’s Ambassador to Italy, in the presence of numerous regional and local personalities, and the consular corps accredited to Turin.

The Monaco government has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Sant'Egidio association regarding the program "Corridors humanitaire" for the reception of refugees in Italy. The contribution of the Prince's Government, up to 500,000 euros, will help Sant'Egidio and its partners to continue their help for refugees for four years. Specifically it aims to grant a legal entry to very vulnerable persons for humanitarian reasons. The program brings together all the conditions necessary for good integration through support for housing, food, health, education and vocational training. The collaboration with Sant'Egidio is the result of the special attention of the Principality to migrants and refugees. Between 2015 and 2017, nearly 80,000 refugees benefited from direct support from Monegasque Cooperation in the areas of health, food, education and employment. In addition, in collaboration with the French authorities and a Monegasque NGO, the Principality hosts some fifty refugee families in its own territory or in the immediate vicinity.
