Prince Albert II has decided to reduce the budget of the Palace: The Palace will have a 40% budget cut.

“The seriousness of the situation calls for increased rigorous financial management accompanied by major efforts, particularly with a view to an overall reduction in State expenditure. In this context, the Prince has decided to reduce the operating expenses of the Palace with a reduction of nearly 40% in its allocation, which has fallen from 13.2 million euros to 8 million euros. The Sovereign has full confidence in the solidity of the Principality’s economic and social model to overcome this health crisis with unprecedented economic consequences for his country.”

Vote on amended budget: The National Council of Monaco unanimously voted yesterday evening on the first amended budget for the year 2020. The budget deficit amounts to 478 million.

“In three months, we are going to use 20 to 25% of the liquid part of our Constitutional Reserve Fund, compared to 10% in three years during the previous crisis”

Jean-Louis Grinda, Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee.
