Monaco’s Minister of State, Serge Telle, was part of the cross-border Franco-Monegasque Cooperation Commission gathered in Nice on Thursday, February 6 for its ninth edition. One of the subjects of discussion was British nationals residing or working in the Principality and the measures to be put in place to mitigate the Brexit impact.

The committee also took stock of the reopening of the Beausoleil ramp, which was closed in 1994 and will link the A8 highway to the Moyenne Cornice in La Turbie to relieve traffic congestion of some 43,000 daily commuters. The 600-meter route will be redesigned with one-year of roadworks at a cost of €6.06 million, according to VINCI Autoroutes, scheduled to start in 2021.

Created in 2005, the Franco-Monegasque Cooperation Commission is held each year, alternately in Nice and Monaco, to address practical neighborhood issues between Monaco and France, the local authorities concerned (PACA Regional Council, Alpes-Maritimes Departmental Council, Nice-Côte d'Azur Metropolitan Area, neighboring municipalities), particularly in the fields of planning, housing and mobility, the environment, social affairs and health.

Along with Telle, the Monaco delegation included the Minister of Finance and the Economy Jean Castellini, the Minister of the Environment Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, and Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario.
