Following the suspension of the operation of Greece’s Embassy in Cameroon (July 2009), our country is represented in Cameroon through the parallel accreditation of our Embassy in Nigeria. Cameroon is represented in Greece through its Embassy in Paris.
Greece’s political relations with Cameroon are very good. The most significant field of cooperation between the two countries is the successful exchange of support between the two countries for their candidacies within international fora. Our country has been providing development assistance to Cameroon.
Cultural Relations and Greek Community
A number of Greeks settled in Cameroon starting in 1919. In 1985, the Greek community numbered about 1500 people. Today, there are some 300 permanent residents and approximately 100 seasonal residents during the coffee and cocoa harvests. All of them are successful businessmen or company executives and most of them have set up their own businesses in Greece. Yaoundé is the seat of the Alexandria Patriarchate’s Ηoly Archdiocese of Cameroon and Central Africa. The Archdiocese also carries out missionary work and has already set up several churches in the country.
Competent Authority: Greek Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria.
