Republic of Liberia

Independent since 1847, Liberia was one of the first African countries to establish diplomatic relations with Brazil. Trade contacts between both countries were the main component of the bilateral relation. In the last few years, the process of bilateral rapprochement has been intensified and a Framework Agreement on Technical Cooperation was signed (2009). The Embassy of Brazil in Monrovia was opened in 2011.
