Amb. Jean-Marc Mpay
His Excellency Ambassador Jean-Marc Mpay was born on 21 July 1945.

Ambassador Jean-Marc Mpay has been nominated ambassador of the Republic of Cameroun in Berlin on February 2008, by H.E. Paul Biya, President of the Republic of Cameroun as successor of Jean Melag, who served for 24 years as Ambassador for former West German Federal Republic and for unified Germany.

Relations between Germany and Cameroon are good, mainly due to Germany's participation in development cooperation.
Since 2012 high profile visits have increased in intensity. The Bundestag Vice President, Johannes Singhammer, visited Cameroon in June 2014, and the Federal Minister for economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Müller, was there from 12th to 15th March 2015. Cameroon Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo, visited Germany from 22nd to 25th February 2015. Three visits to Cameroon by delegations of the German Bundestag in October and November 2015 and again in February 2016 highlight the quality of bilateral relations at parliamentary level.
Germany is one of the partner countries of the Cameroonian development cooperation and works closely with Cameroon on the basis of intergovernmental agreements. Intergovernmental negotiations take place every two years, most recently in November 2015, in Yaoundé. During these negotiations the two states coordinated their development cooperation plans for the next three years.
In Cameroon there is great interest in Germany on account of its excellent reputation in the field of science and technology. There are about 230,000 students of German in Cameroon and around 1,000 German teachers.
Some 7,000 Cameroonians are enrolled at German universities, so far the largest group of African students in Germany.
