Republic of the Gambia
Diplomatic relations between Brazil and the Gambia were established in 1965, with the Embassy of Brazil in Dakar (Senegal) being cumulatively responsible for representing Brazil to the Gambian Government. The representation of the Gambia to the Brazilian Government is cumulative with the Embassy of that country in Washington (United States).
At the invitation of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, President Yahya Jammeh visited Brazil in August 2005, when not only it was decided on the creation of a Joint Commission, a forum in which representatives of both countries will advance bilateral themes, but also technical and sports cooperation agreements were signed.
