It’s now official! Monaco’s membership of TV5 was confirmed on Thursday, December 9, by the signing of the TV5 Charter by Laurent Anselmi, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, in the presence of Prince Albert II. The signature means Monaco can now sit on the television network’s board of directors, alongside the other members: France, Switzerland, Canada and Belgium.
