Political relations

On 4 May 2017, the Government of the Republic of Serbia established 25 May as the Day of Friendship with Peoples of Africa.

The bilateral relations are friendly, but political dialogue is underdeveloped, since no high-level bilateral visits have been registered in recent decades. Former President of the Republic of Serbia T. Nikolić presented the Order of the Republic of Serbia on Sash to the President of Cameroon for merits in developing friendly relations, in February 2016.

The Ministries of Foreign Affairs of the two countries met on the sidelines of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, in September 2016.

 

Economic relations

In 2020, 10,313,000 euros of exports and 290,000 euros of imports were realized. In 2019, Serbian export to Cameroon amounted to 13,993,000 euros and import to 234,000 euros.
