German-Comorian relations are not very intensive.
Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on 2 February 1978. The German Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, looks after relations with Comoros. The Comorian Embassy in Brussels also takes care of relations with Germany.
In 2016, Comoros exported to Germany goods worth approximately EUR 4.7 million, mainly agricultural products such as vanilla. Comoros imported from Germany goods worth around EUR 5.25 million, mainly machinery, food and animal feed.
The European Union is Comoros’s principal development partner: development cooperation under the European Development Fund in the areas of transport, governance and vocational training has a volume of EUR 68 million over a period of five years, with Germany making a substantial contribution to this sum.
The only German company in the Comoros is the freight company Spanfreight based in Moroni.
Germany offers scholarships through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
