History

Lesotho.jpg

Diplomatic relations between Germany and Lesotho were established in 1966 and for many years bilateral relations with Lesotho were largely dominated by German development cooperation. These relations are close and based upon trust, with frequent close consultations between the two countries in international bodies. 

Germany is highly respected in Lesotho, on account of its development cooperation with the country. This cooperation focuses on supporting decentralized rural development, and the establishment of efficient decentralized institutions, including service providers at district level but above all local authorities. This, it is hoped, will improve services to the poor in particular and strengthen the political participation of the people. This is helping to implement the government of Lesotho’s national development strategy.
