Republic of Cameroon

Brazil recognized the independence of Cameroon in 1960. The Embassy of Brazil in Yaoundé was inaugurated in 1982 and, two years later, the Embassy of Cameroon in Brazil was inaugurated. In 1999, the Brazilian representation in the Cameroonian capital was deactivated due to budgetary constraints.

Bilateral relations have gained new momentum from the 2000s. In 2005, the Embassy of Brazil in Yaoundé was reopened, which led to progress in bilateral cooperation in areas such as agriculture and defense. That same year, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva visited Cameroon and, in 2010, President Paul Biya visited Brazil.
