Cameroon

Following the suspension of the operation of Greece’s Embassy in Cameroon (July 2009), our country is represented in Cameroon through the parallel accreditation of our Embassy in Nigeria. Cameroon is represented in Greece through its Embassy in Paris.

Political Relations

Relations between Greece and Zimbabwe are at a quite good level despite the fact that  sanctions imposed by the EU against the country have not been entirely lifted yet.  Greece grants to Zimbabwe academic and military scholarships.

Cultural Relations and Greek Community

A number of Greeks settled in Cameroon starting in 1919. In 1985, the Greek community numbered about 1500 people. Today, there are some 300 permanent residents and approximately 100 seasonal residents during the coffee and cocoa harvests. All of them are successful businessmen or company executives and most of them have set up their own businesses in Greece. Yaoundé is the seat of the Alexandria Patriarchate’s Ηoly Archdiocese of Cameroon and Central Africa. The Archdiocese also carries out missionary work and has already set up several churches in the country.
