Negotiations opened with the European Union in March 2015 on an Association Agreement. The EU Coordination Unit is responsible for organising, coordinating and developing the preparatory work for these negotiations.
The EU Coordination Unit operates under the aegis of the General Secretariat of the Government. It reviews negotiation reports and collaborates on their preparation in liaison with the relevant Ministries and departments, as well as institutional and private entities in and outside the Principality.
These reports are submitted to the Negotiating Team, responsibility for which has been given to H.E. Mr Gilles Tonelli, Ambassador, Special advisor in charge of negotiations with the European Union, who is charged with implementing the negotiating strategy outlined by the Steering Committee chaired by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince.
