Maria Ubach Font
Amb. Mrs Maria Ubach Font, Permanent Representative of the Principality of Andorra to the OPCW, presented her credentials to the Director-General on November 11th, 2015. She is Ambassador of the Principality of Andorra to the European Union, the Kingdom of Belgium, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Federal Republic of Germany. She studied at the University of Sorbonne in Paris from 1994 to 1997. She has an MA in International Relations and Foreign Action. From October 2006 to September 2011 she has been the Director of Multilateral Affairs and Cooperation in Andorra, and she served as the Ambassador of Andorra in France. Since there is not an Embassy of Andorra in Berlin, the one based in Belgium undertakes also relationships with Germany, along with the Benelux foreign representation.
Relations between Germany and Andorra have traditionally been friendly. Germany was the fourth country to recognise Andorra after it adopted a modern, democratic constitution in 1993. On November 25th 2010, the two countries’ then Foreign Ministers Xavier Espot Miró and Guido Westerwelle signed a tax information exchange agreement between Germany and Andorra in Berlin. The agreement came into force on the 20th of January 2012.
In November 2011, Andorran Foreign Minister Gilbert Saboya Sunyé and the Vice-Chair of the Andorran Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Meritxell Mateu, travelled to Berlin, meeting with numerous representatives of German political and economic life.
The German Ambassador to Spain, H. E. Amb. Peter Tempel, is also accredited to Andorra. The German Consulate-General in Barcelona also serves Andorra. The German Honorary Consulate in the capital Andorra La Vella is headed by Cristina Palmitjavila Serra. There are currently some 300 German nationals living in Andorra.
