Central African Republic
Last updated in August 2013
Relations between Germany and the Central African Republic are basically amicable but low-key. The German Embassy in Bangui was closed in 1997. Since then, the German Embassy in Yaoundé has been responsible for the Central African Republic. For its part, the Central African Republic looks after relations with Germany through its embassy in Paris.
Economic relations and development cooperation
Trade relations between Germany and the Central African Republic are modest.
The Federal Foreign Office supports development cooperation and emergency relief projects through international partners, e.g. programmes implemented by the European Union, the United Nations and Doctors Without Borders.
At some secondary schools, German is taught as the second foreign language. There are no German cultural or educational institutions in the Central African Republic.
