On June 20, 2013, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco arrived at the Presidential Palace in Cetinje, Montenegro to meet with President Filip Vujanovic. I have no idea, at this time, what the prince and the president spoke about, but I am sure it was extremely important. Or, perhaps discussed who their favorite football team is and why. Who knows.
Anyway, after his meeting the sovereign prince attended a “…signing of a cooperation agreement between the Montenegrin Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Economic Development of Monaco…” according to the Palais Princier.
Early yesterday evening, Prince Albert II’s personal foundation, Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco (FPA), signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Foundation Petrović Njegoš. According to the official website for the FPA:
“The Foundation Petrović Njegoš and the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco, aware of their complementarities in the fields of research, science and environmental protection, wished to define the bases of their collaboration. Through this partnership, these two entities are committed to acting jointly by:
- co-supporting projects in their common fields and geographical areas of action
- sharing experiences and producing common tools for capitalization and knowledge development.
This agreement was signed by Ms Tania Turquin Spicanovic, Vice-President of the Foundation Petrović Njegoš and H.E. Mr Bernard Fautrier, Vice-President and Chief Executive Officer of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
The first illustration of this partnership will be the cofounding of the ‘Information Centre for Education and Promotion of Skadar Lake’, a project whose aim is to protect an endangered species: the Dalmatian pelican.”
