Colombia: Sovereign Prince’s visit
During his first visit to Colombia, H.S.H. Prince Albert II was welcomed by the President of the Republic of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos. The highlights of the visit included signature of a cooperation agreement between Monaco and Colombia to foster trade, investment, science and protection of the oceans, and the launch of the 2018 White Card campaign created by Peace and Sport, which works to promote peace around the world through sport. The Sovereign Prince then headed to Santa Marta to visit Invemar, an institute specialising in marine ecosystems and in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an isolated mountain range in the Andes.
