Namibia with its “wide open spaces” is not just a very attractive holiday destination but also a country with largely undiscovered trade and investment opportunities.

Important economic sectors in Namibia include miningtourismtransportenergy, and fisheries. Namibia also looks to develop its agri-sector as it is presently largely dependent on food imports from South Africa. Namibia’s well-established port of Walvis Bay and its economic corridors unlocking the Southern African region, make the country an excellent gateway for trade with South AfricaAngola and other landlocked countries as Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Doing Business in Namibia seminar will focus, although not exclusively, on available opportunities in agrofood (incl. horticulture, meat, fish), services (incl. tourism, logistics) and ICT (automation, data processing) as these sectors may provide inviting opportunities for Netherlands companies as perceived by NNTIF. 

The forum is endorsed by the Namibian Embassy in Brussels, the Netherlands Embassy in Pretoria, the Netherlands Hon. Consulate in Namibia and the Namibian Hon. Consulate in the Netherlands.

The event will take place from 13:30 to 18:30 at NABC (WTC, Prinses Beatrixlaan 582, 2595 BM The Hague).
