This Thursday, April 25, Monaco Minister of State Pierre Dartout was accompanied by Céline Caron-Dagioni, Government Advisor-Minister of Equipment, Environment and Urban Planning, and Pierre-André Chiappori, Advisor to Government-Minister of Finance and Economy in receiving a host of officials of the surrounding region, in order to discuss ways to improve rail services in the Principality.

Discussions focused on the investment program and the means necessary to implement to ensure service to the Principality in the best possible way, within the framework of pre-existing agreements, but also by seeking new solutions. The renting of train sets in multiple units and the acquisition of new train sets, for example.

On this occasion, the Prince’s Government recalled the particular importance of accessibility to the Principality by rail, as the main vector of travel for cross-border workers and visitors who arrive in the thousands every day in Monaco. The first decisions taken on the choices and implementation of solutions should take place this year, from May.

Given the issues shared by the Principality and the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur Region, the two parties have agreed to meet periodically in order to continue these constructive and essential exchanges.
