Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Republic of Chad

To Canada




Mr. NALOUM BOUROUMDOU is a senior official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the rank of Minister Plenipotentiary Senior with several decades of diplomatic career. After his primary and secondary studies in Laï, Abéché and Fort-Lamy (now N'Djamena), he taught for a year at the Lycée Adoum Dallah in Moundou and flew in 1977 to KIEV in Ukraine (former USSR) for higher education. Equipped with a D.E.S. (Diploma of Higher Studies) in International Relations (RI) from the Shevchenko University of Kiev in 1983, he decided to return to his country Chad despite the climate of insecurity that reigned in the aftermath of the civil war of 1979-1982. He was integrated and assigned the same year (1983) as Foreign Affairs Counsellor to the Department of Foreign Affairs where he served in several Directorates. Passionate about Scientific Research, Mr. Naloum Bouroumdou returned in 1988 to the same State University of KIEV where he obtained his PHD in 1991 in the same discipline (RI). In the same year (1991) he returned to Chad and his Ministry of origin. Since then, Mr. Naloum has held several positions of responsibility in both the central and external services of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Similarly, he served in the Office of the Prime Minister, Head of Government and the President of the National Assembly. These include, among others, the positions of: Director General of Protocol, then Acting Director General at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Director of Prospective, Strategic and Transnational Threats Studies (2018-2020); Director of Protocol to the Prime Minister, then to the National Assembly (2010-2015); successively First Counsellor in Nigeria (1995-2004), Egypt (2005-2009), Canada (2015-2018) and France (2020-2023). This rich career has allowed Mr. Naloum Bouroumdou to climb almost all the rungs of his class before being appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Canada on March 22, 2023, an act that crowned his forty-year diplomatic career. Mr. Naloum Bouroumdou speaks and writes French fluently, speaks Russian quite well and English quite well. He published some research in 1989 and 1990. He is married and has four children.
