Republic of Sierra Leone

serra-leoa

 

Diplomatic relations were established in 1974, when the Embassy of Brazil in Accra (Ghana) and the Embassy of Sierra Leone in Washington (United States) became cumulatively responsible for monitoring the themes of the bilateral relationship. The Embassy of Brazil in Freetown was inaugurated in 2012. Dialogue between Brazil and Sierra Leone has been driven by high level visits, as the visit to Brazil of Foreign Minister Zainab Bangura (2008) and President Ernest Bai Koroma (2009).

Bilateral technical cooperation agreement was signed in 2008. As an outcome of this agreement, the Brazilian Cooperation Agency (ABC) held, in 2010, training activities for Sierra Leoneans experts in AIDS prevention and in assistance to pregnant women. During the visit of President Koroma to Brazil, it was decided to create a Joint Committee between Brazil and Sierra Leone, to serve as a forum to address issues of cooperation and bilateral relations.
