The Ambassador

Amb. Asnal Ngartolna

Ambassador Asnal Ngartolna, born on December 5, 1978, is a distinguished diplomat with over 20 years of comprehensive experience in both public and private sectors. Currently, he serves as the Chargé d'Affaires a.i. He has held a role at the Embassy of Chad in Berlin, Germany, since April 12, 2023. His jurisdiction extends over Austria, Liechtenstein, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Ukraine, and several international organizations, including FAO, WFP, IFAD, ITLOS, and IAEA (UNIDO CTBTO), showcasing his significant responsibility in representing Chad's interests abroad.

Ambassador Ngartolna's career is marked by a robust educational background, including two Master's degrees — a Master of Public Administration from Old Dominion University, USA, in 2013, and a Master of Communication and Human Resources Management from the University of N'Djamena, Chad, in 2008. He also holds Bachelor's degrees in Communication (2006) and English (2004) from the University of N'Djamena, Chad. His academic achievements lay a solid foundation for his diplomacy, administration, and economic expertise.

Before his current role, Ambassador Ngartolna served as an Economic Counselor at the Mission of Chad to the United Nations in New York, USA, from March 2017 to April 2023. In this capacity, he negotiated with UN member states and senior officials on administrative and economic questions, demonstrating his negotiation skills and commitment to Chad's development objectives on the international stage.

His professional journey also includes positions within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chad as an Administrative Officer and several roles in the private sector, highlighting his versatility and expertise in management, leadership, and strategic planning. He showcased his ability to manage complex procurement processes and negotiations as a Senior Contract Specialist at PetroChad Mangara Limited (Glencore Energy) and a Senior Admin Consultant at Construction and Application International Services (CAIS).

Ambassador Ngartolna's commitment to education and capacity building is evident from his part-time role as a Teaching Assistant at the University of N'Djamena, Chad, where he imparted knowledge in translation, public administration, leadership theories, American public administration, and social marketing.

Fluent in English and French, Ambassador Ngartolna possesses the language skills crucial for effective diplomacy and international relations. His career is a testament to his dedication to serving Chad and promoting its interests on the global stage through diplomacy, strategic negotiation, and fostering international cooperation.



The Federal Republic of Germany established diplomatic relations with Chad in 1960, the second European country to do so, after France. Apart from short interruptions, there has been a German Embassy in N’Djamena since 1963. Chad, for its part, opened an embassy in Germany in 2008.

Germany is well regarded in Chad on account of the close relations between the two countries over the past decades, and thanks to its longstanding and substantial development cooperation. Bilateral development cooperation was terminated at the end of 2012, but humanitarian and transitional aid, multilateral development cooperation and projects aimed at conflict prevention and human rights protection are continuing, as are cultural, academic and scientific cooperation.

Besides Germany, France is the only other European Union country to maintain an embassy in Chad. The European Union has its own delegation there which besides acting as a development cooperation partner, has also assumed political functions since the Lisbon Treaty entered into force in late 2009.
