Namibia boasts one of the most peaceful and politically stable environments in the entire African continent. The most dynamic sectors of its economy include fisheries, agro-industry, tourism and mining, with the latter developed thanks to the country’s great abundance of natural resources. The country has preferential trade agreements with the SADC (Southern African Development Community), belongs to the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and is also among the signatory countries to the Cotonou Agreement and the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).
The advantages of the country were explained in greater detail during the session from the business point of view, as were the current opportunities to establish trade relations and investment in the Omusati region. Finally, the Basque company Efectos Navales del Atlántico detailed its positive experience in this market.
