Extended Monaco – A First Assessment after Nine Months
On 30 April 2019, the Prince's Government presented the Extended Monaco programme at the Yacht Club, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. The priorities of this programme for the digital transformation of the Principality were set out: protecting quality of life, offering a new cycle of economic prosperity and increasing the value of public service.
Following the announcement of the various aspects of this programme, which was implemented by Frédéric Genta, Country Chief Digital Officer, and his staff, 2019 saw the implementation of thirty or so actions in the fields of smart mobility, e-Education and e-Administration.
This was the subject of a Press lunch today at the Yacht Club of Monaco with Frédéric Genta.
