Amadeu Paulo Samuel Da Conceição
Amb. Amadeu Paulo Samuel Da Conceição has been the Mozambican Ambassador to Germany since 2011. He holds a degree in Internaional Relations from St Johns University in New York.
Amb. Amadeu Paulo Samule da Conceicao worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 1978 until 1983, when he began his diplomatic career.
He is fluent in Portugese, French, English and Spanish.
The German Democratic Republic (GDR) established diplomatic relations with Mozambique as early as 1975, the year it gained independence. Mozambique maintained close relations with the former GDR, where many Mozambicans studied and worked.
Following Mozambique’s civil war in 1992, Germany helped with the reconstruction of the country. The large number of high-level visits testify the strong nature of bilateral relations. Last year a delegation of five Mozambican members of parliament visited the German Bundestag and the German Bundesrat, holding talks with the Federal Foreign Office, and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The main bond between Germany and Mozambique is arguably in development cooperation, as Germany is currently providing the country with approximately EUR 60 million per year. The economic relationship between these countries is also dynamic, thanks to Mozambique's natural resources, such as natural gas.
