Jamaica–Brazil relations are foreign relations between Jamaica and Brazil. Jamaica and Brazil established diplomatic relations on October 14, 1962. Both countries are full members of the Group of 15.

Brazil’s Ambassador to Jamaica is His Excellency Ambassador Alexandre Ruben Milito Gueiros (since January 2008). The Government of Jamaica is interested in establishing a diplomatic mission in Brasilia which would contribute to strengthening the relations between both countries. Presently Jamaica is represented in Brazil by an Honorary Consul, Mrs. Maria Pia Fauhabar Bastos-Tigre, Attorney-at-Law, located in São Paulo, the major business centre of the country. The Government of Jamaica is currently giving serious consideration to the appointment of Honorary Consuls in the Brazilian cities of Salvador, (State of Bahia) and Manaus, (State of Amazonas), which are located in the North and Eastern regions of Brazil, respectively.

The move is justified by the following reasons:

1. Jamaican nationals residing in Bahia and Amazonas would benefit from having a Jamaican representative in those regions.

2. Jamaica is currently developing a strategy to attract investments from Brazil, as well as promoting export opportunities for Jamaican products.

3. Brazil’s strength in the creative industries, specifically in the State of Bahia and its proximity to the Caribbean sea renders it a good air link connection point.

4. Salvador and Bahia shares a cultural affinity with Jamaica and is regarded as the cultural hub of Brazil.

Jamaica and Brazil have enjoyed strong relations over the years and the extent of collaboration is evident both at the bilateral and multilateral levels. At the bilateral level, relations have between further enhanced in recent times as a result of the increased number of high and technical level visits, as well as, the active pursuit of technical cooperation programmes in areas such as energy and agriculture.[1]
