Republic of Palau
Palau is a sovereign State of Oceania. The country became independent in 1994, when it ratified a Compact of Free Association with the United States. According to the treaty, which endures for 50 years, the USA is responsible for the archipelago’s defense and security. The government’s regime is presidential, with the President being elected by direct vote for a mandate of four years. The President can be reelected once. The country is particularly concerned with climate change and the sea level rise.
Brazil has maintained diplomatic relations with Palau since January 31, 2005. Possibilities for technical cooperation in sectors such as sugar, coffee, cocoa, soccer, beef, HIV/AIDS, environment and aquaculture exist.
