History

R.Congo.jpg

Diplomatic relations between the Republic of Congo and Germany have intensified since 2013, as a result of the German embassy in Brazzaville being re-opened. The German Embassy in Brazzaville had been closed in 1997 on account of the civil war.

Nevertheless the Republic of Congo is not a partner of German bilateral development cooperation. Among the German businesses operating there, is the German insurance group, Allianz, as well as companies active in the infrastructure sector and the timber industry.

Cultural cooperation between Germany and the Republic of Congo is limited in scope. Germany provides follow-up support for former scholarship holders from the country and advises students who want to study in Germany. German is an optional subject at three grammar schools in Brazzaville but is not taught at the University of Brazzaville. The only German language courses available are those offered by the private Cercle linguistique in Bakongo.
