Germany and Eswatini: Bilateral Relations

09.04.2024 - Article

The Federal Republic of Germany is represented in Mbabane by a liaison office of the German Embassy in Pretoria. Eswatini nurtures its relations with Germany through its Embassy in Brussels, as well as through an honorary consul general in Berlin. Regular dialogue with the Government and civil society in Eswatini also takes place within the framework of EU consultations.

Trade with Germany is modest and is mostly conducted through South Africa. Germany is engaged in Eswatini as part of regional cooperation with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and via the EU. The focus here is on projects to develop renewable energy sources and regional value-generation, in addition to supporting young people and promoting cooperatives. In cooperation with the National Museum in Lobamba, a cultural preservation project will be implemented for the first time in 2024.
