Association of Honorary Consuls of Monaco (ACHM)
In 2003, the Association of Honorary Consuls of Monaco (ACHM) was established to bring together members of the consular corps. The association also provides a structure for welcoming foreign nationals, making available the tools they need to integrate into Monegasque society and their community of origin.
