The British Embassy in Mali maintains and develops relations between the UK and Mali.

Our work covers a range of issues including working together with our partners to build a prosperous, innovative and modern Mali which is safe, secure, and well-governed. As well as managing the political relationship, we provide consular assistance to British nationals in both countries and support trade and investment.
